Would you buy a very sharp wing?

I was recently thinking about buy the Onda wing but decided against it because it seemed very sharp and pointed - and I did not want to fall on it! Does anyone else consider this when buying a hydrofoil?

Re: Hydrofoiling in 10 knots - Is it that hard?

I would also say going upwind in lighter winds is easier since you are creating a lot of apparent wind. Going downwind in light air requires a big foil so you can travel slowly and kite that will stay in the air in next to nothing.

Re: Hydrofoiling in 10 knots - Is it that hard?

I would say alot depends on the type of foil/kite you have. If you have a light wind 12m kite and a large foil 8 knots is pretty easy. My original setup was a liquid force rocket foil and liquid force NRG and I would say 7/8 knots was a challenge. With my new set up - LF Impulse Foil and Gong Strutl...

Re: Hydrofoiling Overpowered

immaculate condition on your working surfaces, mast and wings, run clean tap water over the surfaces making sure the water clings to all parts, this gives a much smoother less jittery ride, = more confidence to push hard. Could you explain this in more detail pls? I am not sure how running tap wate...

Hydrofoiling Overpowered

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could advise me on how to hydrofoil when over powered. The problem I have is that when I am over powered I dont have the weight to hold my large surf wing down since the kite lifts me up and if I lower the kite in the window I have too much speed. Is there a technique t...

Re: Beginner need advice choosing kitefoil

Here is a good beginner video of using a surf foil for Kitesurfing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf3eUkdcoxc One point about surf foils is that they can create too much lift for a beginner. They make learning to surface ride and keep the board on the water harder. You have to be careful about how...
