Re: Which watch for real-time speed read out

Garmin Fenix/Quatix 3 or 5. Battery lasts for many hours in active GPS mode enough for long downwinders/multiple sessions and for more than a week without GPS on.

Re: Balance question - before I get my drill out....

Have an experienced foiler test-drive the board/foil for you before making any changes.

Re: hydrofoil at max speed limit

But no, there is no speed limit for a given foil It is not drag that is the limiting factor for speed, nor the kites max speed (such a thing does not exist either, just as a hydrofoil can not have a max speed) But it is not so, there is no max speed... 8) PF :nono: So simply NOT true, EVERYTHING ha...

Re: hydrofoil at max speed limit

Based on my own experience - Larger wings/masts will just stop going fast (aka big wing MHL Lyft) ... There is a physical limit you will hit. Many of the higher performance foils will generate increasing lift at higher speed and you get to the point you are working very hard with considerable front ...

Re: Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular

Sorry, I did not make it clear that the "coast" I am referring to is very urban and I ride close inshore. If I went far out into the ocean then I might consider taking other safety gear. This is just day to day riding with longer blasts along the beach. I am looking to avoid inconvenience and to ha...

Re: Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular

Nearby boats and the coast guard are all using marine radios and actively monitoring channel 16. A marine radio should be your first choice for offshore communication/safety. It would be really stupid to have difficulty and not be able to call a passing boat because you don't have their number. A ce...

Re: Nigel no mates

Socal has a pretty large foiling community now and foilers dominate light wind conditions. If one foiler gets onto the water, pretty quickly a bunch of foilers will join them. Three to five foilers on the lightest of days is common.

Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

More hours went into writing this thread than the time it would have taken to repair the leading edge. On a side note, my kiting locations seem to have a "go to" company or individual who does kite repairs. A shout out to Airtime who are just down the road from me. A few of my buddies and I have ind...
