Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

Plummet, wish I had the time to make wings. Ive been experimenting with 3D printer at work, thinking of getting a creality cr10s5 with 500*500*500 build volume. But experiments telling me that it's better to get a cnc. How about getting a mast and fuselage, then just making wings you can screw on a...

Re: Fuerteventura in March

Foil is the expert on this spot. I´ve been there one time and my memory syncs with what he says. I do remember that the entry has a rough rocky platform bottom. Its one big rock surface not loose rock. There´s a gap in it so you can body drag out. A high tide it was easy to get just a few meters out...

Re: What 14-15m kite feels most like a small kite? Lightness, turning speed, but still has power for LW?

Get a really light weight/LW 3 strut kite. A one strut or no-strut kite will not be good at upper end. I had really good experiences with my Core LW kites. I had a XR2 17m that was really good. Took up Hydrofoiling AKA one of these: and sold all my big kites. carl-oskar-utomhus-rollator-lufthjul.jpg

Re: Pocket board building

That looks really good. Cant wait to hear how it rides Was out last Saturday in 4c. On my Hyperlink 9m, pretty choppy too. it took a few starts to get used to it and 20 min or so to adjust to such a short platform. But mostly the start technique is different. Have to pop up almost directly. At spee...

Doubt I will ever buy a board without tracks. Too limiting.
Not limiting if riding strapless
True.
agree on the stripped t-nut thing too.

But those tracks are not inherently the strongest solution. They are heavy too.

Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

I´ve only ridden head high ( barely) in cross-onshore in brazil. On a river mouth there was long faces and i was doing 35km/hr to keep up with the sections that were breaking. Plus i was doing a lot of overtaking shoulder high waves and riding them. They were relatively weak waves. The river mouth w...

Re: Travel bag for pocket quiver

I picked up a Bauer 650 for 55 euros in Sweden. Gotta be the best bag for the price anywhere. the handle, bottom and wheels are super nice
