Re: Tefgel

Actually - I notice that there seem to be two different products available at Home Depot: Superlube 3 oz. Tube Synthetic Grease with Syncolon PTFE I'd go for this one. Seems to check all the boxes. Tefgel is PITA to work with because of its high adhesion/stickiness, but that I believe makes it work...

Re: Duration for Screws in Aluminium mast?

I'm having good luck with Tef-gel as well. Usually disassemble the foil for travel only, 2-3 times a year. Salt water. Zeeko foil. I don't even re-apply Tef-gel every time if the coating looks good, but would not recommend doing this. When applying a fresh coat, I clean surfaces really good with rub...

Re: Why not more canards ?

So how do you handle sea grass collecting on the foil? My area has a lot of it and for my surfboard I just ollie to shed them. Would you perform some sort of maneuver to shed them? A jump works quite well. I can shed some of the grass shaking foil in the air, but not all of it. Landing straight dow...

Re: Why not more canards ?

Similar sentiment here. Spitfire with XLW has been my go to rig for about 18 months or so (standard wings before that). I'm still happy with it, but would like to try something else in waves. XLW is still a bit too fast in waves. I have not noticed any pitch issues at speed, but it is not often that...

I'd go with R1V2 between the two, if they were in similar price/condition

Re: Fukushima - isn't it time we started worrying?

Er... just a thought, how's it going with the smoking? Lots of suggestions that it's not good for you and premature deaths of other Marlboroughmen and women seem to support that? Indeed... even second hand smoking is terrible. Here is a map of how cigarette smoke from Japan is dispersed. https://ww...

Re: Game changer - Onewheel teaches how to turn on a foil

I revived this thread as I'm seriously considering one... What is the opinion of the owners? Still enthusiastic about it or it has faded out? Ehmmm, I think it depends on availability of good riding spots near by, or perhaps being able to use one to commute. I for one hardly ever ride it anymore mo...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

....to add to foot switch advice: Back foot push-down just as switch is initiated works well for me when switching heel to toe, however I can't do it (yet) when switching toe to heel. In this case a extra lift from the kite makes up for it. So if having problem with nose diving during the foot switc...

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs. Ozone Hyperlink for LW foilboard riding

Both are good kites if comparing HL ultralight vs Soul. I own regular HL and would have bought Soul if it was available sooner. In larger sizes Soul would be my preference today
