Re: Hydrofoil low end (~7-11knots)

i foil on a 1100cm wing and would consider myself average at best. With the 9m hyperlink UL i was able to get going in 7-8kts this summer (sometimes even dropping into the 6's. Had someone measuring wind speed on the beach while i was struggling to get up and go. the wind picked up to 8-9kts and i w...

Re: Ozone Hyperlink v1 9m vs. Airush Ultra v2 10m vs. Repair an F-One Diablo

Apologize for suspecting a troll. You have made some poor gear decisions. Again, don't want to be harsh, just honest. I'm 100% sure that you will sell that foil and get a more moderate wing. 1000-1200cm 2. Everything you try to learn will be 5x harder. So unless you are exceptionally talented and c...

Re: hyperlink 2, 9 or 11 m2

I think the real question is how low do you want to go? The 11m will for get you going in a little tiny bit lower wind speed than the 9m.... And you'll have more power in those low winds too.... but the 9m will get you going in very low too... perhaps only 1mph or 1.5mph difference in their low end...

Anyone has experience with the Newind 95x42cm? They look great in carbon.
I cant comment on that specific board but I bought a Newind board a few years ago, I wasn't impressed with the build quality but maybe they got better since then.

Re: Cheap mast and foil recomendations

Ive been foiling 3+ years on moses foils. Last 2 years on the 633 wing. I really like the 633. Recently bought a Gong M Pro with 90 cm mast and 40 cm stab. I can highly recommended this foil to learn and progress on. It's less than 1/3 the cost of the moses. I just ordered one, what's the lowest wi...

Re: Chris Calthrop RIP

I met him in Barbados few years ago, light winds one day, he was the only one out on the water and he was catching some nice waves on the reef, with a 2 line kite! really nice guy, sad to hear this.
