Any reason for it?


Learning. It would be cool for kite schools to have them for everyone's first hour on a foil.

Re: Practicing foil technique without a foil

The name of the board I use at my gym is the "Extreme Balance Board" https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjni8ClyurRAhWrr1QKHRFUCYQQjRwIBw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.diamondfitnesssystems.com%2FPage%2520Tw...

Re: Practicing foil technique without a foil

I've wondered about this a lot, as I plan to learn to foil this spring. I've been doing the balance board thing at the gym, while hanging from a big elastic strap attached to the weight racks. (The balance board can tip, so my weight is still over the board). I've thought maybe a longer, pin-tailed ...

Re: Foil Review: Banga BF016WA001 Race Foil

Looks like the wing and stabilizer are fixed to the fuesalage on the Banga? So, no angle of attack adjustment? What do the bolt heads look like on the underside of the fuesalage (for the mast connection)? How streamlined? How long before drag coefficients get published for foils? Lift coefficient? E...

Re: Foil Review: Banga BF016WA001 Race Foil

If the Banga is faster in light winds, and the Mike's lab is faster in higher winds (largely due to a 100 sq-cm difference in wing area), then why don't racing foils come with multiple front wings, so you can swap and match to kite size? For example, when using a 18m foil kite, use the 600 sq-cm fro...

Re: Study of Used Hydrofoil Market

Easy to understand so many Funny foils up for sale, but why so many Spotz and MHL? RH Market share? Extreme prejudice :roll: I count 6 LF foils and one mast collar. I guess they get snapped up pretty quick, must be popular :thumb: I didn't count the liquid force collar. I also didn't count a couple...

Re: Study of Used Hydrofoil Market

No mike's lab (no surprise)
No leivitaz
No F-one
No KFA

I was expecting even more carafino and liquid force...

I was also surprised by the high number of Spotz.

Re: IKA General Assembly adopts important changes to Equipment for Youth Olympics, future Olympic etc

Interesting that for 2020 they are calling the class "Formula Kite", which used to be raceboards, but they will pick "one hydrofoil model" for it, but hydrofoils were originally the "Formula Foil" class. So to compete in their hydrofoil class you have to buy a new foil ...

Study of Used Hydrofoil Market

I just went through http://c.ikitesurf.com/classifieds and added up what's currently for sale, by brand. I counted their categories "Foilboards (complete)" and "Foils (no board)". For the ones listed by the board brand, In went into the description and converted to the foil brand...

Re: Lightwind board - width or area that really maters?

You've touched on length, width, and outline shape. Rocker and fins are the other factors.
