Re: Did I just invent a new trick ? (Probably not)

Awesome Øyvind :thumb: Really incredible "skills", IMO about same league as Stephane and Greg just your own personal "rough" style so to speak, great :naughty: It either makes you inspired, or stop hydrofoiling and collect stamps instead, seeing how good some get, compared to myself ha haa :rollgrin...

Re: Short masts

Nothing in between ? 36 sounds big in those shallow waters, and 28 sounds really really short... :roll: I had the same difference between masts myself earlier, almost 8 inches, too much - and got one in between which has been perfect (for me). 42 and 36 sounds pretty close, but there is a huge step ...

Re: Short masts

Definitely 28"! I have been riding 90 cm mast for two years and now it is collecting dust after I bought the 70 cm in the beginning of this summer - much more fun! In deep water and waves, why do you find it more fun with the 70 instead of the 90 ? Or are you talking about shallow water ? If in dee...

Re: Naish Foiling 2018

I would highly warn against using a short 70 cm mast for kitefoiling in the surf, too short and not good IMO :(

For SUP it should be fine, but that is a very different thing.

Re: Recommendations for a January Foiling vacation

Cheers guys. Peter , is the Langabahn deep enough for foiling and safe ? . It's one of the places I'd thought about ! Turks and Caicos sounds great , Hi Flag53, yes it is really deep, only 10 m out it gets deep after the sand, great. Almost flat, and you can also go downwind to explore the entire S...

Re: North Mono for Waveriding - Your Experience?

I have Mono 7-9-12. Try work well for me on HF and waveboard. I wouldn't say they have great top end, more low-end and easy power delivery, light bar pressure, reactive steering in all trim states, but they turn very predictably. I've not ridden a Neo or Reo. Exactly, they have loads of power, but ...

Re: Best kite for sub 10 knot foiling

You are in the "classic" dilemma, same situation as almost every single hydrofoiler experience. To be able to foil in the lowest possible wind, you need a really good race foil kite medium to big sized (around 15 m2 for your average weight). If you get a kite like that, even if bigger, you can not r...

Re: Take Off Speed

forward speed is kind of a useless measurement because you have a kite pulling you up at the same time, i can often water start straight into foiling with 0 kts of board speed. obviously there is some speed measurement for the foil there because that's how wings work, but i dont know how you would ...

Re: How to Self Launch Using Your Car

The easiest way to selflaunch is using the selflaunch system at the boost and boost2 from flysurfer! I just looked it up, it's pretty smart :thumb: Maybe, but the stake/car is way better for landing again, if windy - here this selflaunch system is to no help, and nobody want to pull/push the releas...
