Re: Transitions - How ?

The first transition you should do is touch down on the water, switch your feet just like you would do on a surfboard, gybe and then sail away heelside. :D A slightly more difficult transition is to touch down on the water, gybe to the other direction and sail away toeside. Some kiters prefer this b...

Re: Hydrofoil board leash

Another technique that works well especially for boards that are too small to sit on is simply place your feet on top of the fuselage under water on either side o...

Re: More tacking questions

Re: 12m hyperlink or 11m chrono ultralight??

I find my Chrono v2 kites easy to fly and I recommend them to anyone (except racers who would want the R1 race kite). Do not buy a used Chrono v1 as it was more of a race kite and less stable.
I have not flown a hyperlink.
