Re: Foil kite drift launch tips and trick needed.

The kite will sometime have a bit of water in it. That is OK. If there is a far bit, as the kite picks up enough air to want to fly, the water may all run to one corner. Then, if you let the kite go it may just rotate around the water filled tip and end up nose down on the water. What to do is pull ...

Re: What fin set up are people using on directional?

It certainly seems to be voodoo...
There is little to no information as to what combinations of setup/size/stiffness do what when searching online, which I find surprising.

Re: Ram Air Bow Tie Disasters

Foils have there time and place. Climbing a mountain in minutes instead of hours with a kite is an incredible feeling. Getting to the top and flagging out a foil with instant depower then packing it up and skiing down. Ive done over 40'000 feet of skiing in 16 runs in a day using a kite. One of the...

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

Hey ORSales,

One more question. Have you tried this bar in below freezing conditions? How does all that PU tubing behave?
I appreciate that no bar will work if gets iced up...think pre-frozen bar on snow.

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

...It will unwind with a bump bump bump against your hand but you simply keep your hand against the winder and it will unspool. Good news. It's important to note too that our system will allow you to do all of this with your eyes still looking ahead as the winder will always be in the same spot and...

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

It is intriguing. I like the principal of a rear line trim for sure, but my one concern with this system is speed. I find I adjust trim often. My concern is that it would take a lot of time to power (twisting the knob), and a lot of clicking to depower. riding...click, click, click.... A 2:1 strap c...

Flysurfer Speed 3 21m DLX

All white Speed 3 21m DLX. I have had this kite since new and it is lightly used and well cared for. I only had it out a handful of time per year on water or snow. Kept in tune (I fly foils almost exclusively), this kite and its fabric are in very good condition. There is a small professional repair...

Re: Angry Swallow fin configurations

I'm ok with buying local. I guess I was suffering from sticker shock in that last post.

I was hoping that with the right fins I could do a decent job at dual purposing this board. Great Lakes waves, and light wind cruiser.

Now I just need to figure out what those fin setups will be...
