Re: north sonar foil or moses?

There are so many options on the market. The cheapest option is not always the best. An interesting X-Over Foil is the new SHINN MEGA K with the S20.1 stabiliser. Not as cheap as the Gong but cheaper as the Moses. Made in Europe and available in Corona times. https://shinnworld.com/products/foil-mod...

Re: Hydrofoil Pro Tour, La Ventana 2020

Are there any videos? Is there no interest of the sponsors to make the competition with riders from all over the world public?

Re: Foil Gybe Advice

Are you riding your kite at the lower performance limit? If yes, downlooping the kite during the jibe would probably help. If you are feeling unbalanced on your foil for some extent it would be normal before you get your jibes dialed in. Because you tried it for such a long time with different foil ...

Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

Nova looks good but... :desperado: no LCLs, uses orbit blocks, no mixer adjustment, manual talks about replacing bridle every 50hours and that the bridle stretches... very weird I have never seen a modern line used on a kite do this. I question if they understand the basics of design like how mater...

Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

Only to mention! This year Peter Lynn Kiteboarding launched a kite the NOVA with pretty much the same product description and marketing like the Duotone Capa. For me the Duotone Capa description sounds a little like a copy of the NOVA description. A Foil Kite especially for Foilboarders that are not...

Re: Hydrofoiling in 10 knots - Is it that hard?

The Foils are getting better and better and the Kites as well. Last year it was challenging for me with my classic freeride wings around 600 cm2 (ZEEKO Freeride, MOSES 590) and with a modern tube wave kite to foil below 10 knots. The mentioned wing size requires a certain amount of speed and I have ...

Re: package good for beginner?

Hi Alex, the fastest progress can be achieved with a dedicated Beginner Foil like the SHINN P Foil. In the beginning it is quite normal to crash a lot with some foil contact for this reason it is much safer to have especially a front wing that is not pointy and sharp. It is quite normal as well to h...

Re: beginner foil wing choices?

Hi B19 ELS, you have tried a SHINN P Foil already. That is one of the best beginner foils on the market! And it is one of the few foils on the market that doesn't have sharp edges and is robust. With 1150 cm² it has the size you are looking for. You didn't liked it? You would have a lot of mast choi...

Re: Peter Lynn Nova

After a few more sessions with my NOVA Ultra Light on my Shinn Foil I'm really excited! The NOVA is really easy to use and to control even in gusty conditions and in anykind of maneuver. It make me think to switch completly from my tube kites to NOVA's in smaller sizes for stronger wind as well. The...
