Re: KeNalu sale

Well hopefully I'll get a small discount but even if I don't that's not that bad. You don't realistically expect to smash your foil into a reef at full tilt and not do some damage. I'm happy it's just the fuselage. Minor damage to the wing I can repair myself. But the slingshot setup looks good, lo...

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

I wear SeaSpecs all the time, not so much for protection, but just because of their coolness factor. When I'm rocking them in the city streets, people are sometimes so blown away by the awesome, I see them pointing me out to their friends ... so I give them a shout out "Yo, respect the strap!" as I ...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Roam feedback wanted

How is the turning speed of the 12m ROAM ?.. I am thinking of getting a 12m for light wind wave riding and skimming.....I have a 12m flite and Prodigy and love them both, but they still feel like 12s....is the Roam noticeably faster turning?? Roam 12 turns like a 12. I borrowed a friend's Prodigy 1...

Re: KeNalu sale

Yikes! That replacement fuselage ain't cheap at $325. Unfortunately this highlights to me that, as sexy as this foil is and despite how much I want it, I am smarter to stick with my Slingshot, for the cheap and readily available spare parts. I am impressed by their commitment to interchangeable comp...

Re: KeNalu sale

I saw this ad posted on Facebook today. I initially misread the ad as getting both their 580 and 755 wings for $673 ... which would be crazy awesome. The surf/sup 755 I want is $773, which is still a good deal for a carbon foil, just not the "holy crap" deal. Oh well. ;-) I don't really know much ab...

Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

this film is compelling to watch for me. glide away into dreamy flowing small waves. https://vimeo.com/265424213 Nice one, smooth nice carving. That's pretty much the goal right there! I find the top turn is fairly straightforward, the really challenging part is initiating the bottom turn after, in...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Roam feedback wanted

I have a 9m and 12m Roam, both Gen 1. I am really happy with them, replacing my BWS Noise Pros. I find they fly very similar to the BWS. I use them for surf and for foiling. Low bar pressure, excellent drift, stable in gusts. Upwind is good. Haven't done much jumping on them, doubt they are big air ...

Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

Yes, that's a good was to describe it Plummet. By no means do I claim to be a super pro foiler, but after a summer season of 3-4 days a week for 3-4 months, I got some glimpses of that happy place where you feel completely comfortable, in control, and can push it. When I am feeling that "flow" it fe...

Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

Getting tighter and tighter turns is feels amazing so far, and there is still a lot of room for improvement on my part. Wing design can also further improve with wings that can handle breaching even better (like the new race wings) so turns off the lip with the wings throwing spray are possible. Al...

Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

PS style and grace ... or maybe not. This photo was one of the most ridiculed "kook of the day" posts ever. A foiler emulating the classic longboard cross-step to nose ride ... if this was on a 12' longboard, it would be considered stylish. On a foil it's considered a lame circus trick. The lesson b...
