Re: WtF man. Will I ever learn transitions...?

windmaker has a good point. Larger wings just allow you to do tricks at a slower speed which some people find less intimidating. But it is no more difficult with speed in fact more speed makes things more stable. You should first learn to ride toeside and then you are ready to proceed... Here are so...

Re: Recommendation Good footstraps for foil board?

These Dakine Core Contour footstraps come in a set of three and are widely available. They work well for me. Note that you do not need adjustable straps because you should always have loose footstraps. I don't even bother changing mine (by moving the screws) when I go from booties to bare feet. :win...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

Very nice video scottnorby. It sure looks fun.
I notice that the wing was probably a Duotone one because it has a pipe as a boom and it has windows.
I have no idea whether the Naish or Duotone wing works better.. both companies make very good products.

Re: DIY PU Tubing

I use bars with PU tubing (Ozone) and without (Naish). I prefer the feel without. Contrary to what some expect about smoother action, the PU tubing can bind and make depowering difficult when turning hard and holding the bar sideways. If you are doing a kiteloop or downloop this can be a problem. :w...

Re: Kitesurfing in Mexico

Mexico is rather large..
Asking about kiteboarding in Mexico is like asking about kiteboarding in Europe..

Although, on all pictures I see, it is REALLY windy always, so apparently not a light wind option in any way :roll: 8) PF
Actually Peter if you look closely at the Robby Naish video or the Bernd Roediger video on page 3 of this thread you will see no whitecaps and quite light wind.

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

OK, the wing looks good. But what else does one need. - How big a hydrofoil wing do you need? Would a 1200 cm wing be enough? - How small a board can you use? (Most of us don't have big SUP hydrofoil boards.) I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who has tried the wing with a smaller hydrofoil wing and...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

It looks like Naish will be first to the market with a production wing product. Good for them. :D I'd buy one if I could use it with my normal sized board and hydrofoil (700 sq cm wing) in winds of 20 knots. But if I need a big SUP board, a big wing hydrofoil and stronger winds... I'm not so sure......
