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...

Re: Opinion on lessons

Re: Opinion on lessons

Thanks guys. As for falling. My total time with foil in water is closer to 30 minutes than an hour. So who knows why probably pure incompetence at this stage. Wind looks good for next week or so. I will just go at it. I already have a shin scar so out come the shinn pads.
Cheers thanks for the tips.

Opinion on lessons

A little background. I am a fairly competent tt rider who just bought a foil. I tried it out for an hour today. I was able to water start fairly easily by the end of the session. Staying on the board not so good. I am in Hatteras and using a happy foil board and short mast and the original foil fish...

Re: Noob mistake: setup stabilizer wing below fuselage instead of above (fin/stab reversed)

Glad you sorted that out.
Were you able to find somewhere to foil by your rental in salvo? Going Friday can't wait.

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

I have a line on a great deal for a happy foil. I have been offered the original LF wings to complete the package for not much more. As a complete foil beginner I figure I can change the wings as I progress. Question is is it worth it to start or should I just use the happy foil wings.
cheers.
