Re: I bit the bullet...all your fault! Lol

The shinn is good to carve and do high jump on flat water, it is a very fast and nervous board , I measured me above 35 knots with it. It is also a very capable light wind board for its size, I have been travelling with it in a golf bag , it was a good compromise as I am not riding on twintips. Now ...

Re: I bit the bullet...all your fault! Lol

Hi I have the same shinn board , which is actually great with the good conditions .. I am foiling since 4 years now, 95% of the time. I will definitively not recommend to use this board as a foil board, especially for a beginner: to narrow, to sharp , not enough volume for a beginner any old surfboa...

Re: zeeko foil mast

The spitfire mast has an angle , the front wing brings less support, so the angle compensate that.

Re: Kite for 6-10 knots

I have a 15 strutless (storm voyager) it is not performing like a light foilkite but I prefer it to swim back to shore and it is much lighter and powerfull than a mono strut 12, it is also relatively cheap compared with a foil kite. I use it with 35m lines, 60cm wide bar in 6-10 knots conditions wit...

Re: Strut length - your preferences

I moved recently from 90 to 1m, what a progress !
The only downside of it is when you start from a beach with big breaking waves and a very low decline.

Re: Suggestions for a wave/foil kite in one?

If you are coming from Naish.
You can try the naish trip, they are good for wave riding and excellent for foiling. For me they behave better than the storm for regular kiting & wavering.
Under 8m the Naish ride is good too with 2 struts.

Re: really small foil boards < 100 cm

I tried different pocket, it seems that there is some kind of limit about 1.06-08 cm to have something still usable in heavy chop, that's why zeeko , ketos are retaining this size for their pocket board. (with 44-46cm width) A way to solve the issue is to compensate the size of the board with a bigg...

Re: Recommended small board for traveling

I rode the kakoo pocket for one year, I like it on flat water , it starts to be small when you want to ride waves breaking at more than 1m, it is ok in the outside (non breaking waves) I built a bigger board for that purpose 1m25x46 with 12 cm of scoop. I think that the problem when you are close to...

Re: Recommended small board for traveling

kakoo does 1,08 x 44 pocket board with inserts for straps on demand, he adapts the mast position to alpine, ketos and zeeko That's the board I use for travel. https://static.wixstatic.com/media/8e0150_c957960a708249aa891ff8029e4fcb6a~mv2.jpg/v1/fill/w_744,h_566,al_c,q_90/8e0150_c957960a708249aa891ff...
