Re: 2017 Lift Foils

I got the 130 wing and 36 in mast. This is my first foil so nothing to compare it to but in my opinion it rides great. It took me about 4 sessions to get the thing figured out but am now able to upwind, downwind and tack both ways pretty confidently. Heres a clip of the foil in action in 13-15 mph ...

Re: How much downwind on Foil start do you point??

I had my biggest breakthrough when i realized that i was trying to ride the foil wings and not the board. I put small x's on my board to show the bolts of the mast and centered my back foot over the front 2 bolts. Front and back feet centered over the front wing. Start slow and facing slightly downw...

Re: Shark attacks foil

I would look at your clip at full resolution, frame by frame when it breaches the surface. I thought I saw a smaller caudal fin but it is hard to tell with the quality reduction from your compression. Do a few screen grabs and put them up in full resolution on here. The surfacing doesn't look much ...

Re: Shark attacks foil

Yeah i was wondering if there was anything i could do to change the appearance, kinda sketchy considering ...

Re: The Only Significant Advance in Kiteboarding in the past Decade is Foilboards.

I think the most significant change has been the increase in number of kiters. 5 years ago it was solo sessions every session or maybe 1-2 other kites tops on the very best days. Now there are 5-10 kites on a good NE with waves or SW session in the summer. Foils are still relatively rare at my local...

Re: Shark attacks foil

are you sure it attacked you and you and didn't just hit it? i run over sharks all the time, lol.. including once on a foil that catapulted me off the board It didn't attack me but definately went after the foil wings. I was unaware anything happened until I looked at the gopro footage afterwards. ...

Re: Shark attacks foil

Looks like you hit something that then thrashed around. Where it breaks the surface it stays there...its not chasing. if you watch the video again and in HD you can see at the 5-6 sec mark there is a little chop trailing the foil line, it looks like he accelerated to check out the wings and nudged ...

Re: Not having much fun Learning to Foil

I just had my first session on Tuesday. My first attempt I didn't even stand up, fell on the rail of my board, crashed my kite and got washed to the beach, took 10 minutes to untangle my lines..... I knew from that point on it was not going to be easy. Every attempt I figured something out and by th...
