Re: Nobile Zen Splitboard

Hi irwe, I haven't tried it myself but can tell you what I have heard from Mischa from www.kitejunkie.com who tried it last days and has it in his shop: http://kitejunkie.com/nobile-foil.html Yes it seem, apart from most things which look fine to perfect, that Nobile misses to give the possibility -...

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

Hi Jaros, on the end it is not so easy at all and everybody starting with monofoil should be very safe with normal foil as doing flying jibes and tacks and landing jumps. But if this requirements are fulfilled and you have a useful monofoil as described, the learning curve is very high: First hour I...

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

@ronnie Just dismount your stabi and try it yourself and then decide if you still see some profit from a version with mechanic. The biggest problem is to keep the monofoil in line with the vectors of gravity and kiteforce. This is just possible if you don't do too much movement at all. So there is n...

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

One wing has potential because the rear wing pushes down on a normal foil. With one wing you can reduce drag and have the same amount of lift from a smaller wing. http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=196&t=2392785 In fact one early feeling was: The low aspect Element wing without stabi has abou...

Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Thanks to Master Phil's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKMhvOXtwnw we all know that it is possible to go without stabi, but what are the needs for an easy to ride monofoil and what can we expect from it? I can't already answer all questions, but trying to share what I know. About one thing I...

Re: Hydrofoil 120km Downwinder

Hi Andre, very nice one, thanks for sharing. :thumb: Also wind from 10 - 30 knts is something. Till know I have just done 15 km one line and 90 km in total but not in open ocean with 30 knts.

Re: Board question: area vs volume

area for sure I am pretty sure, there is no simple answer for everybodys talent, all styles, kites and foils. I tried boards from 165 x 60 cm without volume, the Alien Air, the so called LF "Foil" Fish, and use most time boards with very small surface and but high volume. Personally I would never p...

Re: advice on foil

The LF foil is not for racing. It's for free riding, diddling around on waves and making the most of low wind. It does that just fine, and when you get used to it you'll appreciate how loose it is. Unless you want to go fast in a straight line :roll: It is easy to use, unless you want to tack or ch...

Re: advice on foil

...You can spend some time learning all you can on an easy to use foil -- working within its limitations. ... I also believe you can attach these to pretty much any board, from a surfboard to a twintip to a skateboard or cafeteria tray or a piece of 2x10. ... Right, he can always upgrade, but as we...
