Re: Ozone Short leash Problem / Solution

I have the Ozone short leash and I pull my CL a lot self landing in the water near shore to end my session when either there are too many people on the beach or the wind it too strong. Never once had the pin smack my finger so I was skeptical of the OP issue in a way....BUT I grabbed my harness and ...

Re: Wing STL files anyone?

As far as the trailing edge...George on his videos states that the appropriate trailing edge is squared off. This is a bit arbitrary b/c we are talking about squaring off less than a mm of thickness, but what I am curious about is some high quality foils i have seen are so freaking sharp it is scary...

Re: Beginner and waves - tips?

Dealing with waves as a beginner is completely different than once you can ride well. Also, if you can ride upwind well you can get out of the gnarly waves if you want. I'm assuming since you have only 1 successful water start that you don't know what it feels like to go upwind yet. Is this correct?...

Re: Wing STL files anyone?

Side note to your actual model. Are you modeling a radius on the trailing edge? No need to do that if you are since I'm sure you know the trailing edge should be square to avoid drag and hum. I squared off the trailing edge of the mast, but on the wings I used a conic like blend so I could work on ...

Re: Jay XTC Flextech 2.0 harness

. Plummet, Off topic a bit, but I've been exclusively on the dynabar since a newbie, what are your thoughts on the feel on a twintip? After a year on the water I went back to a fixed hook for a session and I couldn't tell that much of a difference. On a rope slider, I could feel easier tacks toesid...

Re: Foiling Jibes -- Strapped or Stapless?

I was trying to jibe for the first time yesterday and that is dangerous. I felt like I was giving it good tries but they all ended in crashes that either wrapped a line around the foil, smashed my shins or hit my head. I need to learn how to fall without killing myself. I'm on my 8th ish sesh. On m...

But for this application it will certainly put out a nice enough surface, and that looks like a good model :thumb:
Thanks. I don't use 360. I am using g2 on most of the part and I have never dealt with g4. Does even Catia use g4 or does that have to be manually implemented?

Here is IGS export from Rhino for the anhedral version.
Speed,

Looks like a solid design, thanks for sending that. You kept the cross section angle of the foil correct which can get messed up on the 3d curve if not paying attention.

Re: 70cm mast

What is the proper way to measure your mast? Mine is basically 38,39,40 inches(96.5,99, 102cm) depending on the measurement. Top, middle, or bottom yellow line?

Thanks.

Re: Wing STL files anyone?

lol, you aint going to get a class A surface out of 360. Not sure what you mean about the 360...are you taking about the wingtip? I almost have it nailed down...creating the continuity between the fat leading edge and .5mm trailing edge thickness was tough as hell for me. https://s2.postimg.org/ai2...
