Re: JNJ 1st chinese KB Hydrofoil : 325 USD + shipment

Beginner testing fast foil board... First 30 min regressed about 10 sessions back to something like board-on-a-water phase. Gradually, was able to do decent flights to the direction parallel to chop. Then, the front hook broke off. After few futile waterstart attempts bodydragged to the beach, wher...

If you're really feeling lucky, then can jump to Alibaba, where there appears to be an assortment of foil shapes and sizes, including the ones sold by JNJ. That's next level! https://www.alibaba.com/trade/search?fsb=y&IndexArea=product_en&CatId=100005651&SearchText=hydrofoil 20751222_10154722118616...

I'm liking it!

Does the fuselage have inserts for the wing screws? If so are they steel or brass?

Any chance of more detailed pics?

Re: JNJ 1st chinese KB Hydrofoil : 325 USD + shipment

The bicycle industry was in a similar situation a few years ago. Carbon frames and rims were extremely expensive from name brand manufacturers (most still are). But then some less expensive frames and rims from China popped up on the market. Few years later and they're now very competitive and in so...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a foilkite fan

... Many wave and normal 3 strut kites can work with hydrofoil in the 7-8 knots range already especially on long lines but few can relaunch in deep water effectively. ... Can confirm. Love my v3 Cabo 11m with 30m lines on the foil. I can get going in 8-10mph wind and 90F. It's silly how stupid ligh...

Re: Slingshot wave Sst Self Launch

@petato2 Yes, I have an SST 12m. And it WILL launch by itself when on the beach. Pointless design in my opinion as it never does that on the water, NOT ONCE. Yet its done it on multiple occasions on land for me. I use a sandbag to launch/land all of the time. It's fine and stable while launching on...

Re: Slingshot wave Sst Self Launch

When I self launch in higher winds I put my surfboard on the leading edge. When I pull the lines to start the self launch the board just slips away and releases the kite. I've had my surfboard flip and land right on top of the leading edge with the fins down, cutting right through the canopy, leadi...
