Re: Red Bull Megaloop in the Netherlands

They were so overpowered, it was really onshore and there was crazy sweep. Super tough conditions. Watched enough to see state of the art kites rattling, surging and jellyfishing all over the place. We're any actually on 9m kites !? Mortals are overpowered on 7's in 40 knots and there looked to be m...

Re: Red Bull Megaloop in the Netherlands

Lasses Walker scored a 9.0 and a 9.5 ! They were pretty impressive. Might even have been in the same heat. All of it after a decent crash.

Re: What is your wave quiver?

As so often people ended up listing the brand and model of their equipment (who cares) without actually explaining their choices or preferences. Used to use a 5'8" fish for a lot of riding. Very nice 32L quad for small waves and chop, but then foiling happened and it went to the basement. I'll foil...

Re: I hate the wmfg pump

Its not ignoring it, it is a matter of focal point. You do engage your core, and you will engage many muscles like lats, and triceps, but the main muscles to use are the legs. You'll also use your weight when you push down, but using your back to pull up is asking for problems. You can see it on yo...

Re: Going Over Swell with Hydrofoil

I do all jumping tricks to the right, transitions to the left. Can't really boost high to the weak left side...if you are starting then learn on both sides...if you want to concentrate on new tricks, don't waist time for the week side...
Nah, Toby only jumps on starboard tack.
