Re: Preferred line lenght for wave/freeride hydrofoil?

For the last two years or so I used 20 m lines for foiling and Surfboard (5-10m). Now Frank Rosin has made me curious about shorter lines. I would like to stick to one bar for everything. Maybe try 17m or so first and see how it goes.

Re: Ian Alldredge

In that video Alldredge is on BWS. James Ropner on Core and Loyd Surfboard. And then comes Patrick Rebstock, who has quietly moved to Ozone if am not mistaken.

Re: Kite 7m for hydrofoil

I guess any wave kite in 7 m should do the job for you. My choice is the SS SST.

Re: toeside 180 tack ... anyone got advice

I was quite comfortable with the maneuver already but have pain in one wrist at the moment. So I tried to reduce the pressure when leaning into it. So just before turning and leaning into it I rode downwind for some meters. And I couldn't believe that I didn't think of that months ago. It is so much...

Re: Slingshot Screamer / Swallow Sizing

I would recommend the 5.4 Swallow, too. The new Mixer is really fun, too. For me with 80kg the 5.6 would be big enough. But I am not sure if that is enough board for you.

Re: Slingshot Screamer / Swallow Sizing

What size and weight are you?

The Swallow is a good allrounder. The Screamer better suited for windier/choppier/bigger conditions. As a one board solution the Swallow is much more versatile.

Re: Best bankrupt?

Kites used to ship with bag and pump , bars with leash , but this all came with a cost now most brands give the option and ship kite and sock and if the customer wants the rest they can order seperately , I think it is a good thing ... Totally agree. A new bag with every new kite is a lot of unnece...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

Well, first off, as said, much of it is personal opinion and preferences. I have had the SST from 2016 in 6,8 and 10. Then the 2017 in 5,6,7 and 9. And now I am on the 2018 model with 5,6,7,8. I do about half/half surfboard and foilboard. Shifting to more surfboard again over the last half year or s...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

I had 6,8 10 and 12 2016 sst kites. I sold them because of to much power when looping but the drifting is amazing ... That is a good example of how personal the experiences are. I like the looping with the SSTs a lot (I ride all sizes with the 20 inch bar and 20m lines). And only some days ago a fr...
