Twintip maybe are more entry level foil.. Are wrong?
Than liquid Force naish and Moses silente are wrong too?
But somebody have tried twintip or not?
I dont think a TT foil would be easier to ride, but instead a bit or a lot more difficult, as it does not track and stabilise the same way, and not evenly balanced on feet unless you have the sliding fuselage (and making things even more complex is usually not a good road)
Yes, you dont have to "jibe", but that would be the only advantage, and does not really come into play until you have learned to ride a bit.
It works, no doubt at all, and a few of the pioneers in here has actually built and ridden one I know
You should also ask in the Kitesurfing part of the forum, as here on the Hydrofoil forum almost or everybody has learned to ride (directional)hydrofoils, so you wont find anyone who seeks a TT foil of course.
Maybe it could be good for some freestyle, landing blind and reverse and such.
But your jump height will suffer a lot on these, so not so sure really
Strapless as maybe the majority of hydrofoilers rides after the learning period, seems a bit dubious on a TT foil, or ?
Let us see what happens, maybe there could be some advantages one day, or a new design that rocks everything !
