Re: Convertible challenge

All true. :thumb: Unless i really end up loving this board for surface planing, it may some day become a ~2kg pocket foilboard if I shorten it to about 110-120cm (It’s about 0.52g/cm^2).

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

It IS competing mostly with the paddle, Hence it will get derision from kiters like me on kite forums like this. Derision? At this point you are just trolling and trying to shut down discussion Also consider this: Are the wingophobic secretly hiding wing-loving tendencies? Maybe they are subconscio...

Re: Groove Skate foilboard, durability and build quality

relevant concepts: spring break, spring order rush, holy week, etc. they are human, guys.... When you buy from bespoke makers or small shops, it ain't like ordering from amazon. It's a prepurchase decision for me, do I want it enough to put up with any delays or bumps along the way. If not, there ar...

Re: Glassy patches of water on calm sea?

Its usually current/wind interaction or schools of fish. Where I often ride its common to see slicks when fish are schooling -often menhaden on east coast US, probably sardines in the Med.

Re: Convertible challenge

Finally got this project done in small stages over winter in living room, kitchen and patio. Could have taken 6 days instead of 6+ months if I had a workshop. Maybe. 144x49x2.3 rocker about 10cm, touch of tail rocker, soft vee bottom, max ~2-3mm in rocker entry. Foil mount centered about 37cm from t...
