Re: First session - horrendous

I got a good deal on a second hand Delta race foil I don't have a lot of hours in on a surfboard Both are of no help. Find a confirmed KBHF pilot and have him test your rig to let you know just before flying stance rear foot position. Consider a front foot hook ONLY (there is ABSOLUTELY NO reason f...

Re: Any benefit to weight in the foil

If weight was an issue in racing the Mikes Lab wouldn't do as well as it has been. It's a really heavy foil as it is so damn SOLID!!! Could very well be that a heavy set up for racing could lend itself to more stable flight due to inertia? I remember well way back when buggy racers went for SUPER h...

Re: Screws loosening themselves ?

It is so easy to simply use TORX hardware and a quality tool using fresh H20 when assembling.
Preflight KBHF connections control, just like other forms of flight, is also so fast and easy!

Re: How frequently do you disassemble and clean your foil?

J Shapes has 4 screws for a full pack down. The Liquid Force had 13. The other reason is that I did not want to mess around with all the water that drained out of the Liquid Force mast. I have quite a nice car and the last thing I want is salt water to drip all over the interior. The only problem I...

Re: Any benefit to weight in the foil

A lighter foil is easier to carry, more responsive, and certainly jumps better. Carbon masts are light and very stiff which is what you want. Durability of a carbon mast is not much of an issue since you are unlikely to damage your mast (and small dings in carbon are easy to fill anyway). If anythi...

That's a pretty solid mast profile.
And it is MUCH thinner than LF with a MUCH more advanced hydrodynamics!
I have not seen the Zeeko profile, maybe someone can post a pict?

Re: My progression, some help needed please

Why not try strapless and find where you feel most at ease both stance width wise and fore, aft placement. :idea: Then note where your feet are and place straps there for jumping. May I suggest caution when jumping with such a heavy set up, and missed receptions with tight straps will cause damage t...
