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

Amazing Øyvind :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

The stabless fits your extreme fast turning spot on :naughty:

For us mere mortals who cant do shit, compared, it makes no sense but a disadvantage really :roll:

But you make it rock, respect :rollgrin:

Re: Moses Onda with 330 Stabilizer

A smaller stabilizer will only help sligthly... Might be fun in terms of a more lively hydrofoil in terms of turning though, but off topic. Try shimming the stab as the first thing. Then you can also shim the fuselage/mast to get the wing further rear, but will also give you a "nose up" riding postu...

Re: Hydrofoil comparison table

As far as I am aware high stiffness only starts to play a key role for top end racing foils where the loading is severe. I don't believe this at all, I think stiffness is the number 1 factor affecting stability outside of the actual shape/design of the foil. That said, stiffness increases as the ma...

Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

Amazing, you dont HAVE to, as no gain when all carbon (as I assume when a Tuttle head), but choose to dissasemble and wipe and pack everything because you LIKE to do that? Cool, but not sure many (not me at least) like this part of it, when you ride daily in periods, between work and family/friends ...

Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

Above two posts is the very reason why you have to... One has been lucky to avoid it most often, most others get stuck bolts quite fast if left assembled. After two weeks on an alufoil I had, the mainbolts (with lots of tefgel) were stuck in the mast and I were lucky to be able to get them out with ...

Re: SS’s New Infinity Wings

The aspect ratio numbers are wrong in above scheme... They should be corrected as they are only half of what they should be, so can not be compared to anything :wink: The easy way to calculate is to take span*span/area :D Which essentially is the same as span/middlechord which is the very definition...

Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

No, not often, but... I sometimes take the board off the mast (one screw only on Ketos so fast to do), so it can fit in the car with other boards and hydrofoils. Only take the mast of the fuselages on occasion if I need to store lots of other boards in the car, waveboards, surfboards, etc, so there ...

Re: any downsides to shimming stabiliser and big wing mast length

Yes, there are downsides when shimming... No downsides of longer mast combined with the big wings. But IMO loads of downsides of a shorter mast, but we can never agree on this one, I know. It is a reminiscence from SUP that does not make sense in waves with a kite I would say, but some like the shor...
