Re: Tarifa foil boards - worth to try?

Havent ridden one myself, but after looking at one up close, they are really nice. I've heard good things. I dont think you'd be disappointed!

Re: Upwind/Downwind Technique?

I’m using different sizes, but in 10 to 14 knots on a 15 Mt soul, a Moses T60 board, with a Vorace mast (101 Cm) and a 590 wing. Weight 95 Kg’s. My angle to the wind is ok, but on the downwind run I always seem to be vertical, upright on top of the board, which is not so stable. How do you get the ...

Re: Upwind/Downwind Technique?

What kite and foil are you using? How much power are you riding with? Keep the kite low and pick up speed, then follow the kite downwind. You need to have enough power to get a good downwind angle. If you get overpowered turn more downwind towards the kite. If you dont have enough tension. Turn upwi...

Re: Precautionary Recall Flysurfer Control Bars

Does this apply to race bars? Or only PU coated depower lines?

Re: Spotz2 foil for beginner?

If you dont want to race or at least go fast, then definitely no. I learned on an earlier race foil. When I moved to spotz2, it was easier to ride than the original race foil I had, but newer race foils way easier still. As an example, I was trying to learn foiling jibes on spotz 2 for over a a year...

davesails- George is making a new race foil FYI. Complete re-design.
Thanks! I did not know that, I'll have to follow up with him. I do love my Delta, just getting beat up now after 3 years of use and looking for something new.

Re: Chubanga v2 2019

Its a great improvement over my moses comet, no ventilation at all at any speeds upwinds or reaching. The glide during maneuvers its longer, which is a great improvement on my tacks in 5-6 knots, i can do all maneuvers 10/10 in more than 8 knots , but under that it was quite hard to be consistent o...

Re: Chubanga v2 2019

Thanks for the updates!

My current board has the tuttle 23cm from the tail. Would that really make much of a difference once foiling as long as the footstraps are in the right spot?

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

Even Nico Parlier still has a trim line, so I guess I don't feel bad keeping mine ;)
