Re: Kurtis Goggles

I can confirm they are alive and restarting business. I got an email reply from Kurtis just now after about 12 months of trying to reach them. He was very apologetic and is helping me out with a repair.

Re: What is Your Max Speed @ Hydrofoil ?

Not to rain on anyone's parade but if you are using a basic GPS then they are highly subject to aberrations in speed readings. I see stupid numbers out of my Garmin Fenix every once in a while....where I know I didn't go that fast but I could certainly claim it. You really need a high frequency read...

Re: Carbon Mast Insert repair?

A local here has managed to pull one of the fuselage inserts out 1-2 mm. Its a Moses. Any repair suggestions? Whacking it back would just be a temporary fix. Shimming the other side helps the fuselage angle temporarily. Hard to say but a pic would help. Depends how those inserts are retained in the...

Re: Woo3 and Xensr compared

Nice video but : -Testing a Woo with a foil is pointless because it is not supported as per say the CEO of Woo and the readings are not fair to the other users (much higher readings) -I don't want to be mean but her jump technique is poor... -The 2 WOOs are not placed ideally on the board (one on e...

Re: boards

I'm sure you will get lots of opinions: I prefer some volume on a board and very stiff construction so that board is at one with the mast.... The plank styles feel flexy to me when doing aggressive things like boosting. I also find it strange when the plank types are nearly submerged when not being ...
