MHL / Lift Front Wing for 2015 NF2

Anyone have a front wing for the 2015 NF2 setup laying around in the garage that they want to sell? Flat bottom 4 countersunk holes on 1" centers. This is the "original" Slingshot foil I am speaking of.

Hit me up via PM if you do.

Re: North rebels

I am North Loyal for 15 years, have been on Rebels since they came out: 2007/2010/2013 / 2015. They kites DO work well for foiling. You will get used to how they fly forward. But they are built heavier and need more air to keep them alive. I used to use my 2015 Rebel 14 down to 7 knots, but did more...

Re: Nobile Foil Split Board 2018

I also have the 2017 and really love it , both with the foil and as a surfboard. On the surface this board looks identical except for the colors of the deck pad. I also ride only strapless and I use this for air travel so I use the Nobile Inspector Gadget Foil setup.

Re: Slingshot Foot Hook vs NSI Foot Hooker

I've had NSI and Slingshot. Both work well. For me the NSI was a little too tight (close to board) , tight on the top of my foot. My NSI broke after a few months. I've been on SS for 8 or 9 months, it's a little looser and has not broken yet. I'm using only one front hook , really using it only to h...

Re: Best kite for sub 10 knot foiling

Everyone's experience is different, and it depends on the "character" of light wind in your location. I've been foiling for 1.5 years, by no means an expert, but competent. I live in houston and we get a lot of days in the 7 to 10 knot range, especially in the summer. a Foil has me being able to go ...

Re: Back footstrap position

In terms of being able to handle varying conditions, chop, glass over powered / under powered I sincerely beleive that the best position for the rear strap is on the shelf in your garage. (seriously, not joking). you will quickly learn how to adjust weight to compensate for different conditions.

Re: Too much power?!

I would agree that a 17m is too much for almost anyone. You will quickly become overpowered once you develop any apparent wind at all, (which you will very quickly once you are gaining speed on plane). I'm 100kg and i can go on a 12m NEO in 7 or 8 knots and a 9m in 10-11 knots. You just have to lear...

Re: Big Guy Kite Recommendations?

I'm 220lbs and my typical quiver has been 7/10/14m Rebels and a Juice 18. The 14 Rebel would get me going in 12 knots on a 134cm twintip (barely) and the Juice 18m in 8 or 9. I also have a surfboard and a foilboard which takes the 14m down to 7 knots . I just refreshed my quiver yesterday and went t...
