Re: Just not getting it

Some great comments here. The part that took me a while to understand and apply, is that you don't have to edge your board while water starting, it is something that I did instinctively after so many years of riding twin tips. You have to try to stand up while keeping your foil board flat, otherwise...

Re: Is this the most high tech foil?

I spend my days working with computers, and I like not having computers involved in my hobbies. I'd take good old drums/bass/guitar over electro any time, and same thing applies to preferring "old school" foiling over computerized pitch control. I think kiters like the act of finely balancing all t...

Re: Is this the most high tech foil?

I don’t know how far it will go, but I love it as an innovative concept. I don’t share some of the views expressed in this topic. A solution in need of a problem, But Why, etc. Guys, we are grown men (& women) that spend our weekdays dreaming of getting into the water to fly a kite and rip on top of...

Re: Considering a switch to foil kites

Thank you very much everyone for the well intentioned and very useful comments. - Regarding the cold water, after 20 years living in Miami I just don’t feel like kiting in cold water, I am not brave enough. So that is not an issue. - I think it’s a good idea not to get rid of my Rebels yet, and have...

Considering a switch to foil kites

I am thinking more and more about switching from inflatable to foil kites. I think that the re-launchability issues of the past are gone, and it looks like if my main kite discipline is foil boarding, a foil kite will make sense. One question that I still can’t answer is, -generally speaking- can I ...

Re: Is 70cm mast too short for wavefoiling?

I like the 70 quite a lot. Just a few years ago we were getting out past big waves with no mast at all. But a difference is I don’t judge my own riding by the absence of touchdowns and my board is friendly in touchdowns. Sometimes it’s just a chop licking the board and sometimes I put the board dow...

Re: Anyone tried foiling with a wing?

This has probably been answered before.
Would it be realistic to try to wing foil with a Moses W633 wing? Would I need something bigger?

Thank you

Re: The Duotone Wing

Horst,
Can you waterstart your inflatable board with your foot in the front strap or you need to kneel every time?

Thank you

NHP Split Foil, A good idea or too much to ask for?

Hi,
What are your thoughts on Nobile's 2020 Twin Tip Split Foil.
Could it be a decent TT, and a decent foil board or it's just wishful thinking to think that we can have both in one?


Thank you
