Re: Got my hands on the Quark!

https://vimeo.com/286605357 Just got mine today. Had to test it with my U-Go mount as the one from Noir Matter was broken on delivery. Luckily I saw the crack before putting the camera on and going out. So far so good. It does what it is supposed to do. I am a bit worried about the thing not being ...

Re: Jumping (and landing) technique

It really depends on the size of your wing. The smaller the wing, the harder it is to land foiling. On a small wing that needs a lot of speed to fly, you need to land with the foil diving into the water whilst at the same time diving the kite. As in this video here on the 637 https://www.facebook.co...

Re: Fuerteventura in Oct

It is pretty much impossible to say what wind we will get here in October. We have had Octobers where is has been windy pretty much all the time and we also have had Octobers where it has only been possible to kite with a normal board about 5 days. Bring all the kites you can fit in your bag. Anothe...

Re: Straps or strapless poll

Both. Straps for racing and jumping. Strapless for everything else

Re: Hello all help with rigging wipika air blast

No certainly not a joke. Thanks for replying I will certainly try basically using pig tails. It cost me nothing for kite I have nothing to really loose. The bar had no safety features at all this has been upgraded with quick release and a additional leash. Fingers crossed sounds like it will be int...

Re: Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

There are also a disadvantage of "floating foils" as they tend not to be so easy retrievable after a crash, so not always a win-win eventhough lighter is in general better yes :( 8) PF I have found the opposite to be true. With a "sinking foil", after a crash, the foil goes vertical and shoots down...

Re: GOPRO Fusion and Kitesurfing Videos, The Future of POV?

I don't think so. The Workflow is horrible. It takes ages to get the footage stitched and into an editing program and couple that with the fact that very few phones can run the Fusion App, it becomes pretty much useless. I am of the opinion that unless Go Pro can come up with a killer product soon, ...

Re: Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

Moses Onda Kite and Go Foil Kai are buoyant and will float on the surface.

Have a look at the video from 1:42 onwards. You can see the Onda float on the surface and keeping a volume board on its rail.
