Re: Ke Nalu hydrofoil

Awesome! Love my GoFoil Iwa for kiting but definitely feels a bit big when the wind picks up. I scored a Nalu wing which I had to adapt to my fuselage and I realy don't like it, it's more of a kite-wing than a surf wing. Maybe in huge waves it would be better? But for tiny slop it's just too small ...

Re: Ke Nalu hydrofoil

Great review stevez! Do you know if, and or when KeNalu plans on making a longer strut? Thanks! Thanks! They have told me that it is possible already, their mould accommodates a mast length up to 90cm, and when I want/need one I should reach out. I think the fact that the base plate is separate fro...

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

I just posted a review on my new surf foil ride, the KeNalu setup. http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2400066&p=1021209 I have also ridden the GoFoil Kai a lot, and I have had great experiences on this. I haven't got to ride the Moses 633 setup, but it looks awesome, and I'm sure the hype is n...

Ke Nalu hydrofoil

After a great season riding in the waves the GoFoil Kai, I got my hands on the KeNalu foil. It's a brand well known and respected in the stand up paddle community for their paddles, but not well known by kitesurfers. But this foil setup has many things about it that kitefoilers will like, and may ev...

Re: Marks on board - please tell me what is the cause of this

I think you all must be right! This stuff is much more fragile than I thought :o I don't even have a hook on my spreader bar, I've got the direct connection to bar BRM style.
It must be body dragging and handling in the water. I thought I was ok at that :(

Re: Marks on board - please tell me what is the cause of this

Do you think that water impact can cause these? I've mainly used this board for wave riding. Sometimes when I pearl, off a wave going quite fast, the board seems to hit the water quite hard. I ride strapless, and when I crash, I normally end up nowhere near the board. If the board hits me it's norma...

Marks on board - please tell me what is the cause of this

I've got this custom made foil board. There are some marks that have appeared - they're mainly on or near the rails on the top side of the board. I am curious to know what the cause of these marks is. The guys from the shop that makes the board reckons they are from small impacts, like contact with ...

Re: Foil Board DIY

How did you get the rocker in it? It's laminated in 3 layers. I got the rocker by clamping and gluing it bent. Not as much as I would have liked, but enough to make a difference. I didn't allow enough for springback. I wouldn’t have come up with the car tire padding on my own. A better solution is ...

Re: Foil Board DIY

Allow me to amend my question — what does everyone think should be the minimum thickness for a 42x20in paipo made of strips of Paulownia? Here's my 39 x 17in paipo made of strips of Paulownia which I finished building a few months ago. It's about 2cm thick. It has just a single layer of 6oz glass t...

Re: Oahu Dream Holiday

Go to Maui, stay on the north shore, maybe Paia, or somewhere around there. Paia can be a bit of a traffic bottleneck, but otherwise it's just lovely around there, there's so much to see and do nearby. It's a 15 min drive from Paia to kite beach. Plenty of alternatives for non windy days, though you...
