Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

if that girl can make you do that, she can make you do anything, and your sporting days are numbered. Get out while you can, before you find yourself washing all the organic nappies in organic soap while she fritters money away on carbon guilt tokens

Re: Attached-on Hydrofoil for TTs

Cool! There was a guy 5-10 years ago who made foils for his twin tip that attached to the fin holes. He was in the Pacific Northwest I think. Wrote it up Online, said it went fast and could jump but not turn. Having the area out at the tips gave too much inertia to be able to maneuver. This central ...

Re: Learning with Zeeko Carver vs Green

I ride zeeko Carver and standard wing with anhedral. Mine is older so blue not green. Essentially the same though. I have learned on the carver, to more rapidly progress in feeling the wave effects, to ride in the lightest wind, and to attempt jibes at slower speeds. I think the standard wing may be...

Re: Change AoA of front wing

first ride it with the new board, see how it goes, try moving it on the tracks if you have tracks. To tune the foil itself, shimming the rear wing seems the easiest way to try to change something and less likely to affect everything else. Shimming the front wing affects the board, fuse and tail trim...

Re: Moses 2018

I got meine second hand and I sold it on for someone else to learn on. So, got resold twice This is the upside: Growing the market without risking the reputations of the high performance niche manufacturers. Personally I am glad I bought a foil that leaves growing room and more performance options ...

Re: Slingy & LF taking competitor wings

Other examples of how it works: Levitaz is a spin-off or branch of a larger engineering firm, thats' why they have the type of metal fuselage they do. Ketos, too, has a relationship to a larger manufacturer, but a composites one, hence little metal in their products. Ketos is still a top quality, sm...

Re: Ride Engine Rib Jab

Had similar with various harnesses sometimes including a 2017 engine. Usually depends on what I’m wearing and perhaps if my weight is up or down a few pounds that season. Sadly it seems more of an issue when I drop a couple of pounds! But if I put the engine on well It’s usually, at worst, more of a...

Re: WindFoil - KiteFoil

the kitewing/wind weapon approach is very interesting with foiling. kitewing on water was something I wanted to explore years ago, but on correspondence with others who have done it, it required lots of wind, and the kitewings very often broke their wingtips when crashed. A better construction or mo...

Re: Stem Cell Treatment for Shoulder?

...and there are lots of technologies now that are better and not so relevant to the 1990s-2000s fetal stem cell issues and political dramas. The approaches that use the patients’ own stem cells instead of some others are more appealing for many reasons. But applications are still somewhat limited, ...
