Re: mmmm...Donuts!

Thanks for reminding me about this stephk. I reglued 3 valves with the Stormsure back in February and it worked great. Worked so well that I forgot all about it, and all the valves are still leak free. I still need to get some of those donuts for my repair kit. Looks much better than the valve traps...

Re: Kiteboarding practice from a boat

@kitesurfvoilier. Very cool that you are working on this. I hope you will be able to share some more video showing the specifics of how you launch and recovery. As with all kiteboarding, but especially with boat launching, the devil is in the details. Sharing what works and doesn't work will be real...

Re: Kiteboarding practice from a boat

PD Gorby 67 I really like your method. I have been showing people how I do it for a few years now and have been surprised I have not heard much back in the way of better ideas or improvements. Your method really provides a good alternative to the free drift I use. I'm sure that keeping the tension o...

Re: Kiteboarding practice from a boat

Nice work. Take a look at this method I use to drift launch in deep water. It might work well for you.

Re: More lake kiting questions

I was thinking I should always go with my largest board for the lulls. I figured a bigger board and smaller kite would give a better range than a bigger kite and smaller board. I certainly agree that a bigger board and smaller kite is the best way to go, but in on and off winds when you are using a...

Re: More lake kiting questions

Yea. I think all of us lake kiters deal with the fact that winds on an inland lake are going to be very on an off. That and the fact that wind forecast are not nearly as accurate as they are in coastal areas. It is just difficult to pick the right size kite on any given day to keep it in the air dur...

Re: Learning foiling behind a boat

For me I would say yes. The 6 sessions I got prior to getting to kite with the foil made the feel of the board more predictable and gave me a little bit of muscle memory for what to do. With no wind, it was definitely worth the effort. Besides that, it is fun. Probably not as fun as it eventually wi...

Re: Learning foiling behind a boat

After my 6th session foiling behind the Seadoo, I got a couple of chances to kite with the foil in very light wind. The first time I got to use the kite, I got one descent pull and rode for about 50 yards then the wind died. Although that sucked, I did learn that at my level, struggling to keep the ...

Re: Learning foiling behind a boat

Here is a shot from a GoPro on the ski rope. It did not work very well for video. As you can see, there is very little wake behind the PWC.
