Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Here is the link collection, which I also added to the very first post so that you can always find the link to the links :wink: https://kj4l.com/?p=418 To get at least some of the important posts found. This is a really good collection. I wonder if Toby could move this link to the first page of the...

Re: glue for different

If you don’t want to use epoxy, gorilla glue (polyurethane glue, if that brand isn’t in Germany) might work. I used it to attach to foam sheets for a board build, and it has held up well. It expands so it will fill gaps, but you need to clamp it down.

Re: Lift 150 or 170

I’m your weight and have lots of time on 110 and recently got a 170 (just one session so far). I like the 170 and don’t feel it is too big, but if I were doing it over again, I’d probably get the 150 instead. You probably would be happy with either though. I have the 170 classic, I’ve heard the newe...

Re: Foil damage from package

I doubt it will impact performance much. Hard to tell from picture, but it looks like it is going to be above water most of the time. That said, it shouldn’t come like that, and I’d consider asking for a new mast. A dent like that may cause whistling when it is below water. Annoying, but nothing ter...

Re: First vacuum project guide

You can use a household vacuum cleaner to hold carbon onto the board while it cures, but you'd need something stronger if you plan on actually using vacuum to bend the foam. There are a few ways of getting rocker in the foam (glued while bent, thermo-form, or shape from a block). 1.) Shape your blan...

Re: Liquid force spacecraft

My dad has a moon patrol (similar board) that he really likes. I've never riden it, but it looks like a really nice board. I think I recall him saying that it held speed well and did really nice toe-side carving. At $120 it seems like an easy buy.

Re: Moses fuselage on Lift mast

I've never heard of a Lift to Moses adaptor. I think there is an adaptor for moses fuse on an aluminum slingshot mast, that is probably going to be more economical than paying someone to make a custom adaptor.

Re: Hand Sewing Ripstop Nylon

I did this on a tear from trailing edge to leading edge and it is fine so far. Repair tape on either side of canopy, then hand-stitched the perimeter of the tape with uv resistant sail repair tape. Resale value goes to zero, but seems to work fine. I don’t know anything about sewing and didn’t do an...

Re: Carbon mast on liquid force impulse setup?

I think a carbon fuselage would be more improvement than a carbon mast. My lift carbon mast weighs about the same as my aluminum (zeeko) mast, but the carbon fuselage and wingset weighs less than an aluminum fuselage (without wings). Liquid force does make a carbon fuselage, or at least they did.

Re: Boxer Water Re-Launch?

I have a 10m boxer from 2018 (maybe 2017, can't remember). 1.) It does not relaunch as well as a cloud in flat water, so maybe you've just been spoiled 2.) The relaunch is pretty good, except towards bottom of range. There is definitely a wind band that I could ride with a foil, but not relaunch the...
