Re: too light to drift downwind?

So: has this happened to anyone else? Yes to an extent, I just recently changed my high volume (21 liters) board to a low volume (5 liters or so) and noticed the same thing, the board did not come and meet me, in fact I had to body drag up wind to get it... I didn't think much of it till I read you...

Re: A15 15m first impressions

lol opps... 8 knots

and thanks for the tip. I will try that, seems counter intuitive to leave sand in there after I spent extra for the light weight material.

Re: A15 15m first impressions

Thanks foilholio, Flew my A15 again last night, this time I started in about 4- 6 knots and ended in about 89 knots. I felt like I could foil as soon as I got it in the air but was not there for that, I was trying to learn to make power with it based on the previous suggestions. I think I have it no...

Re: A15 15m first impressions

Take it to a park for a fly. You are best trying to relaunch it to get the water out. I would always try to sort out the tangles and fly the kite before I end a session. You will dry and get the sand off quickest flying it. Learning to relaunch very quick will save you hassles as well. If you short...

Re: A15 15m first impressions

Ok so had my first flight of the A15... it certainly is different from LEI. I struggled to make power with it. I found the best way to do this was to downloop. Worked fine playing on my deserted beach I was having fun getting pulled around , when I went out into the water for my maiden voyage I quic...

Re: Weed now legal in South Africa

yah maybe its good, but I can tell you being from Canada, we do a lot of border crossings into the USA.

Re: Ride Engine ? Slingshot warranty issue

as far as North America is concerned I have no complaints regarding warranty issues with Coleman directly or now Ride Engine, and thankfully the prices of the Ride Engine harnesses are coming down to be at par with others and in many cases less expensive. They even sent me sample patches of their we...
