Re: Naish Hover or SS hoverglide

As it looks like the Naish Hover STRUT is the old OEM, (discontinued) L F thick, heavy, not very hydrodynamic, therefore slow and draggy, you would be much better with a much more thought out design! The SS NF2 foil assembly, STRUT + fuse + wings, NO board weighs 5.2 K, 11.5 lbs which you will feel ...

Re: larger wings

Sure like my DIY 900 cm2, slow but tons of lift, fun to see just how slow you can do flying turns, getting the kite down turn in time with the jibe is great fun!

Re: its not going to happen for me

I have become a quitter. but my most fun is my big speed 3, 21 at 12 MPH IN BRIGHT SUN AND WARM WATER. Find someone who knows how to fly KBHFs hopefully well and ask them to go with you and give a real time lesson, teaching. You say you like lower wind, Thats when KBHFs SHINE! You owe it to yoursel...

I bought the slingshot system
So, I quit. .

Maybe bad karma for your support for the psycho thief Manual Carabelo, carfina here during the scam! :lol:
To bad, the slingshot is one of the few US set ups that flies just fine!

Re: How do you rig your lines ?

Just yesterday witnessed ANOTHER line break because of rigging downwind and pulling lines over a random sea shell damaging just enough to cause breakage minutes later! As I had just met person in question I explained side wind set up and we even found the shell, there were very few, and there was pl...

Re: LF Happy Foil + pill or Slingshot alien air + zeeko blue and white

Oh man, LF mast alone is 2.2 kg (2016 model). Fuselage is another 1.16 kg. The later is a solid chunk of aluminum -- can you imagine dumber design? Hollow piece would have been as strong but shed half the weight... Speaking of lack of attention to detail, the front wing leading edge is [relatively]...

Re: Offshore winds

Where we live (Med sea, Tramontana wind) it is often almost directly off shore and strong and gusty, BUT, With experience is is WAY more safe to KBHF as opposed to other types of boards because of the HUGE wing range and upwind ability of foil boards. The challenge being to be far enough out to not ...
