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 ...

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?

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...

Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

Your foil kites are pretty big. The 18 and 15 are not useful for learning to foil. Learning to foil, take same size kite you would take if you were taking surfboard. You seem familiar with foil kite flying. If you get a used 9m Ozone R1V2 / Chronos 2 or similar, your have go to kite for 14-16, it wi...

Re: A case for full face?

I think solution is more like that ski-goggle face mask thing. Close to face. I've totally given up on any for of eye cover due to fog, water on lenses. ( please don't give me recommendation on " non fogging " eye protection, I don't believe it anymore.) Perhaps I could make custom molded kevlar fac...
