Re: Neil Pryde Glide Reports/Reviews?

I'm about 73kg & have been kiting & prone surfing the L & M with S stab & stock 65cm mast.

Re: Looking for my first foil board (surf+kite foiling)

Kitesurf = low volume
Surf = high volume
If I were you, I'd decide which discipline is more important to you & choose appropriately.

Re: I give in

I bought a cheap 2nd hand foil/board combo - after about 4 months sold it & got into prone surf foiling.

Foiling is very addictive 🤙

Re: Which is your preferred trim system?

I like no trim, aka the BRM CCS system - been using a copy of it for 3 seasons now & wouldn't change a thing.

Re: 2018 Naish Thrust Surf Foil

[/youtube]https://youtu.be/3pFnVIQyDeg so Why can't I kite with the one lenny is surfing on ? There is no reason why you can't, I have a mate that kites on his Axis 920 SUP foil. I'm just out of the beginner foiler stage & have decided I'm going to get a prone surfing foil set up, maybe a Naish Com...

^^^I agree with everything Dylan wrote & mostly ride with thruster set, I would also like to add that Quads can also help with going up wind.
My favorite fins are the Mulcoy pro 5 fin set on my Evo.

Re: Dakine option spreader

I ended up getting a Jay XTC harness with 11" Dynabar V9 XW as they were on sale.
Very happy with it so far.
