Masts : (...) the mounting holes do not run through the full-length, so not easy to cut down.
How did you guess that ? A screwdriver in the screw hole ?

Re: Adapter to use Moses with inexpensive Aluminum Slingshot Masts

Any chance you have an adapter in the works that will work with alu mast on the Lift Foil? That exists here but not sure you can get it separately... When asked politely, everything is possible :wink: :wink: If not, as it looks like a small KF box (ie tapered on the 4 faces), replicate the original...

The north speedster felt kind of springy to my crew due to the flex of the wing,
The North Speedster is made in "forged carbon" that is the material (resin and shopped fibre mix) is shaped in a die. Maybe this explains what you feel.

Re: Split boards - worth the money?

Any pics available? Thanks If you do not dislike the pieces of wood (cleats), the (reference) Saucisseman method is very simple with 10 to 12 screws with flat heads on the board bottom: F-one Style transformation (2007) then NAISH SOL (2012) Cleats made of beech can be thinner than pine as beech is...

Re: Question Profile Go Foils ?

When you have a closer look you can see the milling lines from a CNC. Sounds a little fishy to me. By the way a wing with such a high rake will have torsion on the wing tips high as Trump tower. As long as there are no other pictures I would call this story bogus. After a closer look at the article...

Re: Duotone Soleil 2019

I'm 1.80m and weigh 82kg. Would a "female specific" TT do anything significant for a 1.8m/82kg woman that it would not do for me? I call bullshit. What happen if you do it the other way round. A man using a "female specific" TT ? Too soft, more prone to break ? It might also be a question of.... we...

Re: Question Profile Go Foils ?

Dear kiteboarding company, I think it would be nice if you give me the results of all your development work for free.. that way I don't have to buy your product. Freeloader :roll: That's very 20th century in fact and unlikely to happen. In 2019, it is more fascinating than that and sad somehow. In ...
