Re: Shinn P Foil Mast - Compatibility with other brands

Hej CG,

How's the foiling behind the reef on the east end by the Wyndham? Is it deep enough, looks magical.
I mean inside the reef

Thanks for tips

Re: Power.

Mossy, I was a bit confounded too. 22-25 knots. It's a North Mono 7, and others were on slow LF foils and 9m dice and a 9 Best Roca I think. They managed, but have a little more HF skill than me, but not much more. I think HF they have- the old Lf, one of them with bent fuselage, compensated. Anothe...

Re: Finally I had my first date with the Ultra 12 @ 6-10 knots

I don't leave mine on the beach, except time to rig and un-rig. But I'm hydrofoiling mostly and when up and riding I'm depowered and canopy is fluttering. so I'm assuming that's when the wear is happening.
When I'm on my surfboard, they don't flutter

Re: Shinn P Foil Mast - Compatibility with other brands

I cannot answer your question positively but I would be very surprised if you found any compatability with any other brand. Each brand has its own shapes and hole patterns. You should consider cutting down the mast you have. Anyone good at metalwork should be able to cut an aluminum mast and tap ne...

Re: Power.

I went out overpowered on my 7m kite. We were supposed to race 6km across the sound, but when I tried to take the course to the mark, it was broad reach and I was keeping kite low doing "speed of light" across a 1m windswell and breaching, or keeping kite high and getting lifted off the board by the...

Re: Moses 2018

The 2016 and 2017 fuselage are the same, right?
The 2016 and 2017 masts are both compatible to the 2016 fuselage.

So I assume my 2016 Fluente mast and fuse are compatible with 2018?

Re: Finally I had my first date with the Ultra 12 @ 6-10 knots

I'm not saying the Ultra will wear faster. The Mono is.
What's happening is the flapping, vibration of TE cloth is wearing it out fast.

Anyone else seeing excessive wear on no or mono strut kite?

Re: Finally I had my first date with the Ultra 12 @ 6-10 knots

I'm using North Monos now one season, and I do 40-60 sessions a season. The TE on canopy material, at the zig-zag transition zone to the thicker TE cloth is looking very worn already on the 9&12 I use most. I've never seen this kind of wear on any of the kites I've owned, even ones 4+years old. So b...

Re: North bag zips complete sh*t!

There's another long thread about this. They have to be brain dead to not know. They are not addressing it because if they do, about 10000 people will demand new bags for free which would put them out of business. I have 2 broken out of 3. 2016 kites. What you can do: complain to your retailer. Comp...

Re: Slingshot NF2 Positioning

There's a lot of factors involved, rocker on tail, the foils behavior to name the 2 I have discovered. My foil behaviour is noticeably different on different boards.
