Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

It's very addictive. You'll want to get out more often, but if you can't due to work/life balance, then it could stress you out more than being fun. If you do start, just forget the TT. Ive kited since 2001-2 and Hydrofoiling has changed everything. 90+ sessions this last season when I normally get ...

Re: Choosing between Two Slingshot Foil boards

The slingshot boards suck, the rocker is all wrong. Sure, they work, but not very well. I've had a dwarfcraft and sold it at a loss after 10 sessions on it.

Re: Light wind foil kite for foiling

I personaly dont believe in loops. Sine down from opposite edge right in front of you and then gradual upstroke. If you have problem on ONDA with sonic 2 13 on 7-10 then there must be something wrong. I actualy consider sonic 2 11 powerstroke too much for onda in anything above 8 knots - at 89 kg n...

Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

I'll be real interested in know about your 3d printing journey Tom. I already have a mast/fuse that I can bolt wings on and adjust with shims. So all I need now is to make some wings. 500x500x500 is pretty big! that might be worth the extra money so you don't have to tab and slot so many sections. ...

Re: Smallest possible LEI kite size for best low end

There's a local foiler riding and selling the storm Voyagers. He's often out on the big sizes in low winds. Even the 15.

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...

I can do flying gybe and footswitch and keep power in the kite doing flying gybes. No problems. But what I real...

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...
