Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Saul, if you'd do a little research, you'd understand that it's not so much "government planning" as it is a compromise solution to a decade of litigation that will ensure a long overdue replacement to the Bonner Bridge, which will result in consistent and reliable access to 50+ miles of coastline ...

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Construction is already underway. I just rode in the Waves area on the sound right next to the construction site. You can see the cranes for miles. The house my friends were staying in and everything north of there will be shut down for kiteboarding. That's government planning for you. 44452548_1782...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

My first time really foiling around. Hydrofoil board, foil race kite. I've been foiling on ILEs till now.
My home built hydrofoil is really performing well, too. I just need to learn to turn it.

Re: too light to drift downwind?

And I'm trying to build my foils lighter so I don't lose them if something breaks. Great! Another problem to deal with.

Re: 3D Printed Wings - please post your experiences here

CNC machining seems to me the way to go, rather than 3D printing. Start with some material, and cut away what you don't need to make either a mold or directly create your wing. To machine it directly, get some G10 fiberglass. I use my CNC machine to cut molds, then make them from carbon. Most 3D pri...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Good to see you are enjoying the waves, and proceeding in small steps, very rewarding :D One thing though, have you thought about cutting 40-50 cm off the nose, as I really think it will make it a lot snappier in turns and easier to handle, and work just as well or better in every other aspect.

Re: Adding washout?

Homemade AoA -meter :) I use that method, too. I learned it on Youtube. Great resource. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTCyag5N_vE I just designed a new foil with 1% washout, and cut the molds. If I want, I can add more by twisting the mold. LowAspectFoilWashout2.jpg LowAspectFoilWashout.jpg
