I read lots of your guys feedback and I concluded few items:
- it’s not that hard to switch to monofoil
- monofoil has much less drag
I got excited about simplicity of potentially having mast and wing only, therefore reducing weight, size and cost of whole setup.
I was itching to give it a try so I did. Put together H4 on 24” mast and 42” Dwarfcraft, and took it out by the shipwreck in Rodanthe few days back.
I can concur on lower drag, the rides vere very smooth, but riding was a lot like learning to foil years ago.
Very smooth bronco
Surprisingly I could go farher and more stable on my weak side but on the strong side I’d get into porpoising fairly quick. Tried to move mast back, tried different stance - same mediocre outcome.
Maybe a bigger board would help recovering from touchdowns but the fact I was touching down on a foil for me indicates something is really wrong.
I’ll try 633 later, still curious but way less excited
