Re: The Full Circle

The thin carafino wing is great. Big as a dinner plate but thin. Just proves you can go with a wing that has absolutely no profile....the 633 is pretty thin too...of course it has a little profile but not much....was telling our intermediate riders I wasnt ready to go to the lift for two years I was...

Re: T-Tails on 50 and 70 cm masts

Looks like a redneck foil.
Prototypes are never pretty...one of them looks like the Alpine.

Re: Best way to make a prototype

Can you tell us what you learned from the computer...did it tell you how to balance the wing sizes for stability?
Did it tell you where to put the mast for optimal balance?
Anything that you can share form the experience?

The experience flying this kite on a foil is unreal so will keep with it.

Vertical Drop w Fly Surfer

New to using a Flysurfer for foiling... Had a straight drop from a high mast MH Lift riding a FS Unity today. Being that the center lines are attached to the leading edge it caused the kite to immediately invert and race to the water, game over. I believe the Unity has a few years on it but Im wonde...
