Following on from the pumping theme, this is a video of manpowered foiling. It can then maybe become manpowered using a sail or a kite to get the board moving fast enough and the foil being pumped enough to kitefoil in zero wind - but it may require a specialist kite for pumping.ronnie wrote: ↑Fri Oct 14, 2016 10:09 amThis is supposedly in 3 to 4 knots of wind, and they are giving him some speed to start with, but the efficiency of the foil allows him to get foiling. A light wind foil, sail designed for pumping, and board designed for getting a foil going might mean that it would be possible to get a windfoil flying in 0 knots.
Could pumping a kite be possible? Is there a kite design that works well for pumping?
