Re: High wind hydrofoil photos

Great to see photos of people foiling in conditions that are challenging for any kiteboarder. Which of you guys are riding Strapless in these conditions? And what tips would you give to someone aspiring to ride strapless in more challenging conditions? I do (as you can see on the picture) If you ju...

Re: Kite choices for foiling in high winds ?

Really enjoying my 5m Reo - fast but you get used to it , and if you run a shorter bar it will slow down the reactivity. Light in the steering, very good drift ,great depower and overall gust stability - I am pretty convinced that wave kites are the way to go for higher winds as a result. I have us...

Re: Wheeler Wonder?

I think he was making aftermarket wings for the LF foil. Now Liquid force is making his design as the LF thruster. Flat isn't bad. Curved wings have better yaw and roll stability. It also allows you to roll more before breaching surface. Flat wings don't ventilate as severely when the wingtip breec...

Re: Still waiting for the Ocean Rodeo Foil....

For start they could offer the Duke and the Jester with mounting holes or tracks for the foil attachment... But I am with others - do not wait. If you would like to hydrofoil, choose from many that are in production already and start to have fun right now! :D Precisely - go get a foil, NOW :rollgri...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Yup, our racefoilkites can turn on a dime pulling a rearline, but you dont do this - then of course you have sheeted it out so you can fly it backwards - thus with this a tad smaller size you can propel it around directly from the bar :D It still looks amazing when you do it like that :rollgrin: Not...

Re: First foil - Slingshot hoverglide ?

Friend of mine learned (still learns) on the Hoverglide, in very few sessions, seems like a great easy way to start :thumb:

And then you can sell it to another beginner, it is a good way to pass the stoke, and many can get foiling at very low cost this way :naughty:

Re: How to Assemble a Naish Foil Set

Yes, some of the older Carafinos could "explode" if you hit something, some of them worked just great and held up, but others could explode as said. There are IMO only advantages with carbon, eventhough a lot more expensive of course. Lighter for same stiffness. Less drag. No corrosion issues. Abili...
