Re: Andersson Foils "Cyber Fish" Canard Wave Foil.

Hi Lars (Andersson?), to not show the critics from the wrong side: I think many as me here are very happy with every new small foil brand. And the basic idea of building custom made alu foils for a low price, sounds like a pretty good point. On the other hand there are a few many statements or info ...

Re: Lecca-Lecca minima

Great Project, :thumb: wishing Stef the very best to become succesful, when I come to Italy I will hope to meet and try. Like the basic idea of the kite shape. And the clean explanations and nice individual style of the website is something most big brands as flysurfer or ozone can't compete with.

Re: How high are you pointing upwind? Are 30° already possible?

@cglazier: Thanks and good Point with the current, but I think has been answered well frome evan: Shouldn't have relevant influence when wind is dead onshore even if there is still a bit of a current and also not on deep bays and lakes without relevant current where I normaly ride. @Evan: Good one, ...

Re: Andersson Foils "Cyber Fish" Canard Wave Foil.

Nice to see also others trying the canard concept of zeekos spitfire. But, - a symmetrical strut profile with rounded ends? Would expect it to be a drag monster. - welded connections? Have you already any good long term experiences with repeated stress failure? I think all firms who tried this stopp...

Re: Dealing with Foil Caught in Bar

Good point NYKiter, even if in other context discussed a few times seen here, maybe someone finds the topics. Foil in lines is one of the points which makes me thinking foiling should stay an "experienced only" kite sport, even if the new foils are getting easier and easier to ride, otherwise I fear...

How high are you pointing upwind? Are 30° already possible?

... , althoug you can get some insane (like 30deg upwind if 0deg is dead upwind) angles then! Sorry for stealing evan's quote from this already existing topic http://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=196&t=2399463 , but I thought this question earns it's own topic: For twintip users it might sound stra...

Re: Hydrofoil set under 1k?

All board and kite combinations have there own kind of playfullnes. On a foil you can discover everything new again. Yes, think so too, as all foils have their individual compromisses and advances. @Sandras: Yes, Greg is actually just using the strut as a serial product, rest is individual shaped, ...

Re: Kite Board Hydro Foils available APRIL 2018

Thanks revhed, for keeping the list up to date. :thumb: I think if there are small brands trying to do commercials with the shown douptful statements, thats one thing. But it is more disappointing that there are still some big brands selling shitty super basic products for an even to high price, jus...

Re: Hydrofoil set under 1k?

First production set under 1k, would be keen to see if anybody else used it. Hi dr511 No, it is not for sure. There is at least https://www.kitesyndikat.de/kite-shop/hydrofoils/rl-variofoil/rl-variofoil-set Who sells since more than a year cheaper than 1 k€ and now below 900 €. And there are for su...
