Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I'm thinking maybe that was too much of a screaming deal (or a typo). It's now listed at $949 rather than $499...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Personally I think $499 for a complete FoilFish is a screaming deal. I thought it was a pretty damn good deal when I bought mine 2 years ago for $1000.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Well I guess I can't say for sure what material the Foilfish or AstroRock boards are. I always thought the AstroRock was epoxy/glass. I once damaged it and fixed it with epoxy glass. It held perfectly for years. I had a couple of older Bic boards that were definitely plastic. The Astro Rock was defi...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I don't think the seam is an indication that it's not epoxy glass. It's just an indication of the manufacture process. I've seen many things that are epoxy/glass or carbon with an identical seam. I had an old Bic Astro Rock that had a seam just like that, and I'm pretty sure it was epoxy/glass over ...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

FYI: Those boards certainly aren't glass on foam. They have a seam all the way round the rail between the two half thermo molded skins over a foam core. Pretty sure you can call em plastic. Two things... - I'm pretty sure they are epoxy/glass over foam. Not 100% sure, but pretty close. - When you s...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

With two sets of wings and the short mast, not a bad deal at all. But I would opt for the long fuselage over the short mast. The longer fuselage will reduce the pitch response while you're learning, then you move to the regular one. From what I've seen and heard most people only use the short mast f...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Yes it's heavy. No, it's not plastic. And your better option doesn't include a foil.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

stasfire this looks like a great deal to me. It's the same board I learned on and still use. I've got a couple hundred sessions on mine.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Deals like the Happy Foil for $500 come up here and there. But you have to jump on them. I do think you'll have a much better time starting this way. I've got a buddy with the JNJ foil that asked me to test ride it for him because he didn't yet have enough experience. I thought it was a good setup, ...
