Re: Foil Boards

Heads up to the Moses Silente riders, we now have the new 560 Freerace front wings and matching 330 rear wings in stock. I'll put a set on my board and let you know how I go on. Dan :P

Re: Low profile, minimalistic waist harness suggestions?

If anyone would like to buy a sell out, stiff, comfy, kite specific harness, I'm putting together a preorder for Ride Engine in the next few days. If there is something specific you want, and you can withstand the shame, let me know & I'll make sure it comes in ;)

I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the Union for the sort of riding you are doing :)

Re: Airush 2016 - the new thread and the new kite - UNION

Hi ya, Dan (g0nz0) here. I would say that a 7/9/12 quiver would work in Diamonds. The 12m Diamond isn't particularly grunty or powerful, so I would say it's comparable to a 10 or 11m delta style kite like your Lithium in the get-you-going stakes. The Union is a more powerful kite than the Diamond an...

Re: Airush 2016 - the new thread and the new kite - UNION

Boosty innit? :D It's a weapon for sent jumps. Can't wait to stick Lee on it with his Woo & see how high he goes! The down side is that the delivery was short, so we only got a 12 & 9m and the new core bar. So for the sake of not keeping you in suspense about the new kite, we've put both of them out...

Re: FlexiFoil Sting on CrazyFly 4-line bar, for practise?

From experience of four line foils Im gonna say dont bother just leave it on handles. Having a go on a land board will be more use than swapping it to a bar. If you do try it on your bar, remember the lines on a foil are effectively back to front, so put your steering lines onto the front lines of t...

Yes, now the only question is Blue or Orange for the 24-7 demo union(s)?

Re: Cutting a full-length wetsuit down to a steamer?

I've cut the legs off a couple of winter suits, usually just below the knee pads. Never found the seems to rip apart or the material to fray etc. That said they are usually glued & blind stitched seams (gbs). Its not like the leg of a suit is stretching as it goes over your foot.

Re: Foil Boards

Anyone here tried, and can give any words on the Moses Silente foils? Old age has snuck up on me and im keen to take the foil plunge. Construction on the Moses Silente seems the most solid of the ones ive found. Would really like to understand the different wing types. I know like alot of brands it...

Re: Foil Boards

Foil availability update: Moses Silente foils and the T20 carbon boards are back in stock in the gloss finish with red graphics. We also have a gloss green T20 board (with red graphic Silente foil) if anyone wants to mix it up a bit. With the new carbon T20 board the Silente is a very light weight a...

Re: Foil Boards

Look fwd to seeing GLR on the Horue polefoil! Pole-foiling actually seems a bit easier than kitefoiling, with the added bonus that you can still sail around like normal (off the foil) if you dont have enough wind. We have the Horue Lightwind foil in the shop for demo (£30 demo fee, refundable on pu...
