Re: Why two regular shaped twintips?

hmmm the opposite I thought was the case. the larger boards do much better in chop because they can bridge two pieces of chop. A small board hits every bit of it. I could be wrong.

Re: Why two regular shaped twintips?

There's no point in having two twintips. in light wind hydrofoil and size your twintip so it works for max wind. if there's a gap between your twintip and hydrofoil fill it with a surfboard. there's to much to do in modern kiteboarding to get stuck only rinding a twintip try a smaller kiteboard if y...

Re: recommendation snow kite

BRM cloud is a fantastic kite, kitexpert. You should give it another demo if you get the chance. I've flown some single skin kites before . . . I think the flysurfer peak? Have not liked them much because of how they taco and wing wrap in gusty winds. For me at least, I always want either a tube kit...

Re: recommendation snow kite

I use the exact same kites on the water as I do on the snow, same sizes too mostly. I have a few foil kites, a few inflatable kites. In gusty conditions I go with the inflatable kites. There's no such thing as a "water-only kite." It's not like the kite sees the snow and says "Whoa can't do this!" I...

Re: too light to drift downwind?

Yeah that's pretty funny. On its side a hydrofoil just sits there but let the foil point down and it shoots downwind like a rocket. Of all the weird disadvantages nobody would ever think a hydrofoil foil is too light until you see it happen, but there it is. When a foil is too light it's impossible ...

Re: Casualty in Sicily

Please stop disseminating dangerous and misleading information. Launching unhooked is not safe nor safer. You don’t start the car from outside through the window just in case it catches on fire, you don’t jump onto motorcycle once it’s already moving. If you say it’s safer to delay getting hooked i...

Mast compatibility

So I know most of the base plates are 90mm and if you have a track system you can swap the entire foil kit, mast, fuselage and wings over from one board to a different board. But today I heard that the Naish and Liquid Force masts are also compatible. I find this a little hard to believe, as the mas...

Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

Yes. Pack down every time why? Takes up less space. I also have several wing sets and am never sure which wing I want to fly on a given day until I'm on site.
