Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

Yeah, more wondering if anyone here has tried kiting with a SUP foil or Windsurf foil board. This is Alex Aguera kiting with a Hypernut 7' 4" by 30" 106 litre SUP board (@ 1:10). You can buy the same board modified for windsurfing and windfoiling. So you can kite foil even with a fairly big SUP boa...

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

I agree. Also consider that guys are sink starting on small foilboards. Windy. But there are videos of guys sink starting . There will be a lot of experimenting with wings. Skimboarding too The bonus is its simplicity. Its not a “gear sport” Wing board foil leash 86kg rider starting a 60l board htt...

Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

Yeah, so kiting isn't banned but swimming is, since the water barely gets above freezing they only allow watercraft that can keep you 100% out of the water. So no twin tips or normal foil boards. The other idea I had was to pick up one of those old high volume fone race boards , but I think it woul...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

I am not impressed in any way I must say, so hope it is thrilling and fun if it is the "thing" :wink: 8) Peter Yeah I feel the same way about those weird hydrofoil boards :rollgrin: Foiling didn't really catch on at the start. Only when it became more efficient and practical did it start to really ...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Pumping on the XXLW Spitfire for me is a series of let it rise quickly then stomp on front for a slightly accelerating dive then back up. Certainly I don’t notice a need to react quicker in this department. As a Windfoil I have progressively been moving it forward and soon will be in the Sup positi...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

This is just a guess, but if the canard foil works by transferring % of the total lift back and forth between the wings depending on the angle of attack, then I expect that the pumping could be improved if the canard wings were both the same size and were closer together. That could reduce the pitch...

Re: What do i do if my kite don't flag out after pulling safety on the water?

I had a similar problem with the Cabrinha 2013 Switchblade IDS. When I flagged it out to the two front lines, it did not drop on it's back and pulled because the wind was getting stronger. Fortunately, I was standing, and when I was eventually standing in shallow enough water, I was able to move fas...
