Re: Foil polesurfing

When it's light and potentially shifty, there's more fun to be had windskating (or maybe now wingskating), the same effortless, energy-frugal motion as a foil, and it doesn't matter if wind shuts down.

Re: Wake Surfing question slingshot 82

For some reason on stock pictures of a foil with Infinity 84 the stabilizer is mounted upside down. It would change stance and front foot pressure dramatically. When using the 2019 rear wing it is meant to be on "upside down" compared to the smaller rear wing from last year. My experience with the ...

Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

You are right. I never have to deal with a beach break. Kitefoiling would be way better for that.

Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

Hello Kitejumping, I was just passing through and saw your thread, I can answer your question. My progression has been as follows: windsurfing 1989-2004 -> kiteboarding -> 2004-2018 kitefoiling 2015-2018 (albeit not super well) -> windfoiling 2018-present. I made the mistake of trying windfoiling on...
