Re: Kite for hydro foiling in weak winds + flight position

Peter, I'd like to hear more about your experience with the CA Pulsion 15. Regis says it would be good replacement for my Sonic 2 13m. I just want to freeride . Need to complement my Hyperlink 9, which works from 5+ M/s. So looking for 4-7ms range Sonic 2 13 works in that range. Not riding in under ...

Re: Kite for hydro foiling in weak winds + flight position

I was out Saturday in light wind. The computers and observation was saying that it was 5ms. There were no white caps at all. Another guy was on speed 21 and me on a Sonic 2 13m, 20 m lines , 80 kg+ 6/5 wetsuit , Moses 633 on 105cm board. In the beginning I had to get timing just right to get out of ...

Re: Pocket board building

Wow, nice shop!! What a dream to have those facilities. Nice looking board. If I can make a suggestion. since you have the wood working skills, to add a thin wooden rail before bagging the skins. Then you'll have a full wood look. I'm heading in this direction. giving up on using surfboard blanks. T...

Re: Do you need some rocker at tail of board

What I mean by tail rocker is not " tail kick," . It is the rocker from 1/3 up from tail to the tail. The foil is mounted on that curve.

Re: Do you need some rocker at tail of board

Slowboat, Look at the groove skate. Or the Ketos boards. They have public acclaimed good rocker curves for a wide variety of foils ( at least the groove skate). The Ketos been around a awhile and look great. I've built 5 foilboards and making 2 more now, and this is my own thinking ( hypothesis). I ...

Re: Do you need some rocker at tail of board

Then another home built that I folded in half quickly. Had 25mm tail rocker. In a panic i bought a slingshot 4-6 dwarfcraft. It had negative tail...

Re: A case for full face?

Hej Scott,

I think a 120cm pocket board in that construction might interest a lot of foilers.

Re: Moses 2019

I bet the T22 is sweet spot size. I've been experimenting with 90-105-120 board sizes. It's still too early to make final conclusion. But with 90 I need to have power to allow direct pop up on 633 wing /80kg . Otherwise it's torpedo. With 105, it's possible to do one sine of kite while board plows a...
