Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Appreciate the feedback! I ride with a single foot hook open forward on the mid to forward aspect of the board. It allows me to waterstart but can move my foot forward if needed. The back foot is free. I've been playing with different foot positions. When I move the front foot forward to anticipate...

Re: Why not more canards ?

Hi What's about the low-end in comparison of xlw to carver? Thanks again Carsten I would say it's about the same if not slightly better on the XLW because the XLW accelerates and builds apparent wind faster and you can pop it up harder on takeoff without fear of breaching I agree. XLW wings were a ...

Re: @Re: tswierkocki

I have a lot of hours on the Zeeko Black and White, Zeeko Black and White with Carver wing, Spitfire with standard wings, and Spitfire with XLW wings. I come from a surf background and mainly want to carve turns. My favorite of the bunch is the Spitfire with XLW wings. I feel like the the Spitfire ...

Re: How to crash advice

I like to push the board nose down and to the side. I then use my kite to pull me in the opposite direction. When hitting the water it is much less painless if you penetrate the water with one foot first. I basically lounge forward and use my front foot to break the water's surface tension. Somewher...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

A little help here please. I just did my first day on a brand spanking new zeeko spitfire. For background I'm 190lbs and can ride a directional strapless jibing both directions. I have experience on a borrowed SS HG over the last year able to foil both directions but no transitions. After research ...

Re: One Board - Kite and Surf Foiling

You can have both in one board unless for some reason you don’t like kite foiling with 35 liters. Most kite race foil boards are about 35 liters. I ride a 35 liter board that was designed for both. BTW, you’ll out perform any off the shelf converted surfboard, with a surf foil board designed for fo...

Re: One Board - Kite and Surf Foiling

I'm pretty sure the galaxy board is foil only there is no place to put Surf fins on it. Sorry for the confusion. I'm trying to figure out how big of a board I need for surf foiling. Would be great to have a single board for kite foiling and surf foiling but sounds like you need a decent amount of v...

One Board - Kite and Surf Foiling

Anyone using the same board for kite and surf foiling? I just got a new surf foil and have been debating adding tracks to an old surfboard or getting a board like the Liquid Force Galaxy for both kiting and surfing. Anyone riding the Liquid Force Galaxy? I normally surf (no foil) on boards with 26L ...

Re: 90X140 to 90X165 Adapter?

I just ordered a Zeeko Spitfire. Curious if the mounting plate will work with the Nobile split board. Any feedback? I have the Nobile Skim Foil board and the Spitfire and they mate perfectly. You should not have any issues mounting the Spitfire on the Nobile split foil. I'm looking into a Cloud 9 f...
