Re: foil cavitating, ventilating, broaching, solution

would anyone chime in on how approximately much less maneuverable a 90-95 cm mast is than an 85cm? ((avg(90,95) / 85) - 1 = 8.8%. Note: this number means nothing. Even if I did, what would "8.8% less maneuverable" mean to you? just looking for perceptions and overall experiences with switching mast...

Re: Foilers that switch to TT above 15-16 knots

I'm not getting off the foil until it's 20 knots. Well, depending on area... flat water area maybe 18 knots if that's the limit of the lulls. I have Switchblade 12 and 10m for TTing, and Drifter 10 and 8m for foiling. I'm mostly using the 8m now, and am contemplating a 6m :D If I'm getting blown off...

Re: Blackfoot moving back as I progress- why?

Assuming your front foot is the same, you've got more finesse and your reactions are better, so now you can handle greater reaction to your input when you apply it, and you need a wider stance to handle your more aggressive riding. Probably :D it's what happened to me, and I ended up moving the mast...

Re: Mast position - explain like I am 5

Ther reason the manufacturers recommend positioning the mast all the way back is because of riders exactly like you - people who don't understand the characteristics of the foil. For them all the way back is safest. As you progress in your skill level regarding balance, you will also progress in yo...

Re: Mast position - explain like I am 5

So --the question-- Why does the manufacturer recommend having the mast as far back as possible? Why is this viewed as the best position for a new foiler? Cos someone told them that was the best way to do it. It's a place to start, not the end goal. Unless it's perfect out of the bag for the rider ...

Re: mystic stealth bar

Re: Mast screws. How tight?

What is the reasoning behind that advice on using (not using) TefGel on the baseplate to board connections ? I am trying to rapidly educate myself about foils. Net wisdom seems to be that TefGel is the greatest thing since the invention of the two-way pump. Armed with that new-found knowledge, I we...

Re: Stiffest wing to fuselage connection type

https://axisfoils.com/collections/foil-parts-accessories/products/s-series-short-fuselage Yes, one of the downsides of the Axis system, the Fuselages are prohibitively expensive. I would be very interested in having a second longer fuselage besides my ultra short for better leverage pumping but jus...
