Re: Is Shinn going to produce his own foil?

Hi Aleks, A couple of points to note from my perspective as the board developer. The first weight of board I gave you was before production started and before the final pad arrived. Now you know why most brands don't publish the weight of the products..... we produce on site in our HQ and our lead ...

Re: Hydrofoil-Begginer Advise

The main thing when you're starting is get a LOW aspect ratio foil (ie.Front wing Long front to back (chord length) Not the ones that have a front wing that is short front to back ; race type foil). There are lots to choose from. If you fly Cabrinha you might try a double agent foil and board. Not t...

Re: Show me your Eyewear

To me the Silverfish aren't just rebranded seaspecs. At least the roadtrips have the right distance to prevent fogging. Also they come with a bottle of some type of lens cleaner which kinda works like "rainx" on your glasses (Who knows it might be the same thing) so you don't tend to get drops or fo...

Re: Show me your Eyewear

Everyone's face is different but I never found seaspecs very good. They would always fog up on me. No fried eyes (Kurtis USA) are super light and very good too. But for me the one's that have lasted 3 seasons so far without a problem are Silverfish. I use the roadtrips and they have been bomber! htt...

Re: Centre of balance

Interesting question, I was wondering if I should move the foil forward or not? I am learning on a Shinn El Stubbo (135cmx50cm) with zeeko foil, I set it all the way back on the foil plate. 2 front foot strap very loose, no back strap. I feel pretty balanced, pretty much standing on top with weight...

Re: Centre of balance

Yes I forgot about jumping but personally I think if you want to jump use a TT or surfboard. I think jumping on a foil is limited. I'd rather carve and keep the foil in the water.....but that's just me...(over 50 club!).

Centre of balance

I was just thinking today that no one tends to talk about the centre of balance for various foils. I spoke to a guy on the beach today who was watching me foil and when I came in he said you look like you are so balanced....I asked him what he meant? He told me that he's still learning on his Slings...

Re: one strut vs strutless

My experiences with strutless kites (the Cloud) were not very positive. They are fast kites but they do not do well in higher winds (kite flapping and jerky). They do have a retro appeal with a very simple control bar and light kite construction. They remind me of my first Wipika kite in 1999. Luck...
