Doubt I will ever buy a board without tracks. Too limiting.
Not limiting if riding strapless
True.
agree on the stripped t-nut thing too.

But those tracks are not inherently the strongest solution. They are heavy too.

Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

I´ve only ridden head high ( barely) in cross-onshore in brazil. On a river mouth there was long faces and i was doing 35km/hr to keep up with the sections that were breaking. Plus i was doing a lot of overtaking shoulder high waves and riding them. They were relatively weak waves. The river mouth w...

Re: Raising the rocker

Re: Moses 2019

T38 mast attachment is a disappointment. They should have either used tracks or used BigHead type integrated inserts with 3 positions 50mm between them. What they did is reliable, light and inexpensive to manufacture- but not very compatible.

Re: Light wind foil kite for foiling

Ok, last mid season I bought a used Flysurfer Sonic 2 13m to complement my Hyperlink 9m UL. I've flown it 10 times and it's a good kite in wind range compared to the Hyperlink. I've had some great light wind sessions on it on a big hydrofoiling wing. But now I'm wondering if there is a less extreme...

Re: Looking for advice on first quiver

It depends on your common winds, but expect your winds to be frontal, generated by weather systems. That means a lot of variation of wind. First, get real kiteboard, if you actually have a wakeboard - don't use it. It won't work well. Forget foil kites for now. Expensive and you'll stall your progre...

Re: ultimate 2-kite superlight travel quiver

Gyre,
Your question is: will Soul 15m be good on a TT in 13knots, and is there enough overlapping to the 9 speed bottom end. At 200 lbs.
