Re: Liquid Force compatible surf foil wing

Now that looks great - I really like the LF gear. I’m also riding s china Takuma as well as a Zeeko green and white. If anything, the china Takuma is a bit too slow for normal foiling - something in between like this Impulse seems like a great compromise.

Re: How to flush sand out of a foil kite.

If it’s a flysurfer there is no need. One the sand dries it will work it’s way to the wingtips via the internal drainage channel on the trailing edge as you continue to fly the kite. Then you simply open the wingtip Velcro pocket and empty the sand out. This is why the channel and wingtip pockets ex...

Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

Never heard of Armstrong until this week when it’s all over Facebook. Where have you been ? When the trend for surf is slower foils aka GoFoil, Takuma and short masts - you are promoting long masts and what appear to be higher aspect wings. It looks like your foil is designed to be ridden at higher ...

Re: Is a Spitfire safer?

For me it was negligible. I bought the spitfire in a December 2016 - not long after launch- and rode it 12 months. Had 2 years foiling experience prior. I’ve never had a foil chase me down in a crash so can’t comment. Spitfire is more tolerant of front wing breaches. At the end of the day it was a f...

Re: Anyone know any details on the new upcoming foil from Flysurfer?

Re: Seat harness for Hydrofoiling. Which are you using and why?

Cheap Dakine seat (hand me down actually) with a dynabar stainless steel spreader bar. Gives plenty of support for boosting and lets me foil toeside easily. Also works on SB nicely too.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Mmm i can’t SUP to save myself but Gunnar (gmb) can. Maybe drop him a line. I’m pretty sure a leash is not a great idea when learning to sup foil.

Can you get behind a boat and learn to foil on flat water before riding a wave ?

Re: Wave Kiting – doubt about specific quiver vs. technique

Interesting thread. I am a frequent looper - in the waves I’m often in the wrong spot - chasing a section, outrunning whitewater , boxed in by a mate or stuck in the gully between close outs and the sand and occasionally need to accelerate dead downwind to get clear. 3-5 continuous loops does wonder...
