Re: T-Tails on 50 and 70 cm masts

Re: how often do you hit fish?

http://i63.tinypic.com/2lus4dc.jpg So my buddy was foiling the other day and came to a dead stop. He checked his foil after the session and saw teeth marks on his fuselage. The picture isn’t great, but in real life you can clearly see bite marks, top and bottom, left and right. Based on the size of...

looks like your max depth was a bit off when cutting those stop sign shapes....
Ummm. WHAT? What stop sign shapes?
Oh. That. Yeah. Happened when I was still a beginner.

Re: Best scratch filler

JB Weld epoxy. Work it in with a razor blade, then do your wetsanding once it hardens.

I cut a hole in my CNC machine

I did a bit of an upgrade so I can drill and tap straight holes in the masts I build. First I had to build an elevated, super-flat table for the entire machine. 20180614_180428[1].jpg 20180614_181039[1].jpg Then I cut a hole in the waste board.Screwed some clamps into place to hole the top of the ma...

And that was the only turn I completed. This is on a home made hydrofoil, and I think my footstrap position may be too far b...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

I am guessing you need the board well tuned so that it almost rides on its own, and just be very light on your toes.
