Re: Who are the foilers?

Wake foiling is Way bigger than any of you realize. From insider info, wake foils sell more than kite foils. Think about it. No way, it is location dependant. You live in US, where wake and waterski is quite big I assume. Here in Denmark, see comments below: 1st.....We hardly ever see it because we...

Re: Who are the foilers?

Wake foiling is Way bigger than any of you realize. From insider info, wake foils sell more than kite foils. Think about it. 1st.....We hardly ever see it because we're wind based sport and not on the water much when boats are. 2nd.....We're a fringe sports. Wake is a mainstream sport with many more...

Re: Cabrinha Apollo

Solarset....the Apollo does not have a lot of "raw" power off the start, so an 8m Apollo would work well with the 10m SB. In other news......I actually bought all of Cabrinha's remaining 2017 Apollos about a year ago and I own the vast majority of all Apollo inventory in the US. And, right now they ...

I was just about to book a house on Cross of Honor dr in the northern most neighborhood in Rodanthe till I heard about the bridge. Thank god I didn't book, the bridge construction is well underway and completely surrounds the neighborhood, not to mention the constant pounding of machines driving th...

Re: Cannot foil

Hmmmm.....usually the back wing is on top of the fuselage, but this might not be the case with Lift. Also, the anhedral or flip of the tips are usually opposing. Your front wings flip of the tips face down as does the back wing. The back wing usually faces up. Can you mount the back wing on the othe...

Re: Cannot foil

Have you tried moving the mast forward?

That will help and you might also need to add some thin plastic ship under the back screw of the back wing.

This will help create lift for the front foot.

Hope this helps.

Re: Slingshot Phantom Foil kite

I have a LF elite 15m used once. Needs a bridle adjustment. It just would not fill up on the tips and haven't made the needed change.

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Thanks for the detailed info. I keep hearing different versions of what ultimately will happen long term and short term.

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

FL and OBX.....I've been renting houses for 2 weeks spring and 2 weeks in the fall for many many years. The arguments (at least on my end) have little or nothing to do with access to the island. Everyone knows there needs to be a permanent solution so when any storm comes through everyone can still ...
