One Board - Kite and Surf Foiling

Anyone using the same board for kite and surf foiling? I just got a new surf foil and have been debating adding tracks to an old surfboard or getting a board like the Liquid Force Galaxy for both kiting and surfing. Anyone riding the Liquid Force Galaxy? I normally surf (no foil) on boards with 26L ...

Re: 90X140 to 90X165 Adapter?

I just ordered a Zeeko Spitfire. Curious if the mounting plate will work with the Nobile split board. Any feedback? I have the Nobile Skim Foil board and the Spitfire and they mate perfectly. You should not have any issues mounting the Spitfire on the Nobile split foil. I'm looking into a Cloud 9 f...

90X140 to 90X165 Adapter?

Does anyone know of a company who sells an adapter to mount a foil with 90X140 hole spacing on a board with 90X165 insert spacing?

Has anyone built an adapter? Recommendations?

I'd rather not add additional inserts to my board.

Re: Convertible surf board

The Zeeko Slash is worth a look. Especially at a 50% discount. http://zeeko-kites.com/gb/kite-boards/270-slash-5-2-surf-3760253111713.html I had one of the best downwinders of my life on this board. Foiled on it for about 2 hours until the thermal kicked in. Swapped the foil for some fins and then h...

Re: What got you into Hydrofoiling?

After 15 years kiteboarding on twin tips, surfboards, wakeskates, paipos... I borrowed my friend's foil. I spent an hour wrestling the foil and beating myself up just trying to water start. I managed some surface riding. I ended up a half mile upwind and had to walk downwind with my gear for the fir...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

I have a blue & white edition Zeeko foil. Looking to make a more serious attempt to get into foiling this year. I am wondering about the usefulness of a 60cm mast, both for learning & for using in shallower water. Is it still possible to get a blue & white compatible 60cm mast somewhere? Are there ...

Re: Waves - concave or convex deck around front foot?

I like a little concave or flat. I really dislike convex.

Re: Spitfire club

Hi Max, Welcome to the club! I also thought I would ride my Carver forever. Once I got decent enough to foil in waves I missed driving through turns with my rear foot (I have surfed all my life). The transition for me from the Carver to Spitfire was very easy. I'd recommend starting with the XLW win...

Re: Spitfire club

I have been on the Spitfire 100% since August. I spend most of my time on the XLW wings but pull the standard wings out in flat water or when I feel like riding powered. I'm mostly riding a 4.8m Cloud D. Funny you posted this since I pulled out my Zeeko Carver setup the other day for the first time ...
