Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

It might happen... I've made a couple sets....a stingy copy and a spitfire homage halfway between standard and xlw (I like to think I was the inspiration for xlw as I'd heard the speed issues and thought a bigger wing would be better ;-) my plan is to make a sup foil set in canard format next. I wa...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Really I think something like a circa 1200cm “Carver XL” would make me quite happy, and hopefully still go well over 20 knots. Even better if a bit lighter than the solid g10 wings... :thumb: Sheet of G 10, a few hours sanding, and a few drilled holes, you have your diy version, with naming rights ...

Re: old fart round the world tour

Some general thoughts: 1) I can't imagine traveling the world & only being focused on kiting. I'd choose places that were interesting as well as being good for kiting - there are plenty of them. 2) You ought to improve quickly enough that kiting in waves will become a major attraction. As an older ...

Re: One Board - Kite and Surf Foiling

I got a 5.6 tomo vanguard with intentions of putting in tracks for combo board....surfboard, surf foil, kite foil, kite surfboard. It is just barely big enough to surf but short enough to be fun kitesurf too. A combo board is great for travel. I already have that for kite foil and kite surf.....bws...

Re: North Neo vs Cabrinha Drifter for wave/freeride

I ha been riding bws for years and lately ocean rodeo roam. Waves when there are any and foiling when not. Ilike to go straight ddownwind in the swells so max drift is appreciated. I just got a liquid force wow. Fun kite but the slightly less drift is noticeable. Wants to fly forward more actively, ...

Re: Scam alert - poses as he’s from Atlanta, GA and asks to do Google pay

I reported this guy a number of times to ikitesurf. They are pretty quick to remove. He posts from various cities usually not common kite locations. Ads are always direct ripoffs from old ads.

if price too good to be true. ..probably is a scam

Re: old fart round the world tour

WOW! Good on ya, that's sounds incredibly awesome. I did a 9 month RTW trip nearly 25 years ago. Now also starting to think of travel on the other side of work and career. :-) Do some googling on RTW fares, I suspect there's lots of online discussion about it. When we did ours, there was a travel ag...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

The current spitfire wings mainly seem to address the ventilation issue by having the main wing farther back and deeper than the front wing. As I understand it, one of the main advantages of a canard is that the rear wing is providing the majority of the lift. So a front wing breach is not necessar...
