Re: Foiling with shoes

Neoprene Vibram 5 fingers if the launch is sketch. They don't do a lot for warmth but they are almost like riding barefoot.

Re: Traveling with Lift 170

They are not good for traveling without putting them in a large suitcase surrounded by clothes etc. I've avoided such a foil for exactly this reason. One of my buddies arrived in maui with a cracked lift monofoil due to airline mishandling.

Re: Hand screw connecting mast to board

Only thing I would think of is make sure it is stainless and it's another surface for a line to potentially hang on if your foil goes through your lines. i think the additional safety risk (though minimal) offsets the benefit (also minimal to me). I'm probably biased because my groove board with mos...

Thanks for the tip. From the Osprey site, dimensions are listed as 38" x 17 x 15 so it seems like it should work. When you say "heat it up" do you mean just hitting it with a blow dryer or something to enable you to stretch the PU inner liner?

Groove Skate "Creaking"

I got on of the early Groove Skates (I think) in the US back in April or May of 2018. Love the board and it is so fun to ride. I'm on Moses 633/483/101 . I ride strapless only, so I have never jumped with the board (in fact it has never had straps screwed into it.) Recently over the last 10 sessions...

Re: whats in a Y!

I have owned and flown North Neo 7 / 9 / 12 2017 Neo and now Duotone 7/9/12 2019 NEO. Great kite for foiling and riding in surf, drifts like a beast and good relaunch. I have always used stock Trust bars with 24m lines (high V) and other than gopro shots being a little farther away, I'm not sure whe...
