Re: Hydrofoil as a carry on for airlines

I sleep soundly at night knowing those brave men and woman protect me and my crew from the dreaded height challenged nerf gun wielding thugs out there.

Re: Hydrofoil as a carry on for airlines

I fly for a living recently I had a chat with a guy who was getting off the plane in Charlottetown. He had the happy foil in the LF carry case. Apparently it went through Toronto no problem. The problem as I see it is the total inconsistency of the airport screeners. I have flown through 100s of dif...

Re: Nobile split NHP converted to foil travel board

Funny. I was considering the split foil board for work travel. You have given me reason to question that decision. I can't see myself doing any modifications over the winter. However, if you experiment I would love to hear your experience with the NHP. How would you rate the strength of the split fo...

Nobile split NHP converted to foil travel board

So how feasible is 4 holes drilled? Epoxy filled? Tapped and insert fitted? 2017 model. Worth the risk? I could buy the foil board split but I have the NHP handy. I am not too worried about the warranty but curious what the board builders think. I would reinforce the attachment with a plate of some ...

Happy foil board inserts loose.

I recently purchased a lf happy foil board. I installed a slingshot front hook. The most forward 3 inserts are now loose. It is a single insert with three screw holes. The glue holding them in position has become unstuck. Now they can be pushed out of alignment side to side and fore and aft. Does an...

Re: Opinion on lessons

So quick update. Tried foil second time yesterday for 3 hours. First hour messed around finding out foot position to start is even more critical than I thought. Rest of time on water absolutely awesome. Stayed up more than down riding on surface. Last ride before I twisted my kite was a long tack on...
