One year after my first landed forward, I land them 99% of the time on Starboard and starting to feel the rotation on port. Let's see how long it takes me on the way back. It seems I pop more upright, ...

The tendon has more meat above and below the holes than the Chinook. Holes line up too. I believe it most fit bases similar to this one:

Hey wind freaks, just received a black chinese tendon. It's a bit thicker on the top and bottom. Fit my streamlined extension without modifying it although it may need a longer safety line as the ho ...

Any time the luff length is just a touch over a mast size. So 398/405 requires a 370 mast with 28 to 35cm extension or a 370 bottom with 400 top.

I decided to salvage a broken mast top and create ...

ALERT : I see too many riders going all the way to the mast tip in the waves while there's good wind. Better use the heli-swim and once the mast more or less across the wind, lift and yank upwind to ...

The heliswim is particularly useful with bigger gear where we need the extra torque to rotate it.

Going to the mast tip is great when underpowered. Mid distance is usually plenty to get the sail o ...
