Conneaut, Ohio has one guy who has several foil boards with various mast lengths. He has Slinghot Hoverglide masts, and he keeps offering everyone a chaqnce to try his boards. He is still something of a beginner, just practicing jibing to toeside and riding toseside. But I know at least two or three...

Mast vs wing placement

I am building my own custom fuselage, and it will have room to move the mast forward and back relative to the front wing. The board I am building will also have an adjustable mast box and adjustable footstrap positions. I'd like to make sure I understand this right. The mast farther back will result...

Re: rescuing a foil board

Re: How to kitesurf: Darkslide

My latest attempts. I may be getting the actual move right, but I probably needed more power that day. But when I try it with more power, I can't seem to get the board on the water on its top rail. I get lifted too much initially and end up putting the board back on the water right-side up. http://w...
