Pain in the A** for majority of people...don't you think ?
Not much different than tuning bar line lengths. Definitely easier that patching a bladder.

Re: bridle line types: Ozone -Flysurfer

At the same diameter, double braid lines are much weaker. Thus increased diameter and drag. The double braid are more stiff and less likely to loop into tangles. The splices in single braid are less likely to tangle and catch than sewn double braid loops. Equal trade off in my mind. Double braid is ...

I don't know why it should be me.
It has to be you. Nobody else has the expertise. Who else could get foilholio to write a 17 page essay to illustrate the fact that wings bend?

Re: New Inflatable Rash shirt

Re: New Inflatable Rash shirt

Looks like it’s in the crowdfunding stage? Why not an inflatable PFD?

Re: Strappless or Strapped for Learning to Foil ??

A low volume board like a Crazy Fly chill deck makes the strapless waterstart much easier. A big floater needs more muscle to bring the foil on edge and rights itself faster. I’m a fan of strapless learning. Would consider foothooks. Don’t be sad when they break. Risk on ankle injury with straps esp...

Re: What is the international signal for "Abort launch"?

Thumbs down, slack lines. Also important works for launcher e.g. if they find a wrapped bridle.
