Re: Dyneema Carbon - new exciting material for kiteboarding!

I look forward to funer a prices coming down, but for use in kites, not foils.

Airrush kites already use strips of dynema as “load frames”, which may or may not be a good idea for durability. But I look forward to full dynema sailcloth being affordable for kites.

Re: About real small pocket boards < 1 m, benefits and limits

Good summary.

I’m tempted to go small w my next foilboard. Mostly for travel.

Re: Waring on Foil Mount adhesive

Mounting surface size?

The foilmount spreads the load over a large area. If you used the same adhesive only on the foil mounting plate, the area would be much smaller, and the stresses much higher.

Re: The stagnant foiler.

I’m in a similar situation. Except can’t foil gybe. Only occasional surface gybes. Not enough time on the water.

I’m hoping a Surf sized foil wing (slower, more stable) will be my ticket for progression...

Re: Where did stopper balls go?

Never had one, or needed one.

Now that my wife is learning, I would like one for her. (Shorter arms)

Re: I give in

Feel free to start with your current quiver, but do it in your normal winds for the first few foil sessions. Which means giving up some surfboard sessions.

If I were in your situation, I would start on a Surf foil (bigger, slower, carve-ier)

Re: New idea for pumping foils?

Glad to see someone trying it. My idea was to do it w the main wing, a la Aqua Skipper.

There must be a way to pump more efficiently, and to look more natural while doing it...

Re: Nobile foil board nightmare!

I have a hoverglide I’ve been treating badly for over a year without corrosion issues.

Nobile splitboard was in my shopping list for a travel setup.

Now I will have to come up with another plan...
