Re: Who are the foilers?

My locale: Kitefoil: seems to have plateau'd. Windfoil: all of a sudden, 4-5 of the local windsurfer community took it up last year (they travel in packs). And suddenly they are actually stoked about sub 25kt conditions again, even saying things like "I wish it would get less windy so I can foil". L...

Re: Why isn't sliding rope bar more prevalent?

Interesting thread. My first use of dynabar slider was a WOW moment ... the freeing up of hips for toeside riding felt amazing, I was sold immediately. Now with more foiling, even more sold on sliders. With more acute upwind angles, especially toeside, I find the fixed hook feels restrictive. In the...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

When people are referring to higher end of the range of the foil and speed limit, is it the speed from which the foil become too hard to control? As per the need to put too much pressure on the front foot? if it is the case the 76 seems (as per the specs) to tolerate higher speed (at least than spa...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I have 9m ultra, and I was betting on a big wing like infinity 76 to get my 80kg started as early as 8knts (although i might be dreaming). What I love about Slingshot is that they have got rid of the sharp edge on the side of the wing, I saw a guy who got 5 points on the leg after a very bad wound ...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

Yeah, their 5 wing line, H1 to H5, plus now add in the two Infinity's H6 and H7....has become a bit much. To me, H1 and H3 seem to be the odd ones out. The H5 (former NF2) is the standard hoverglide kite wing. H2 does double service as a both a lower end kite wing and a higher end surf wing. H4 is a...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I have an H2, H4 (bat wing), and Infinity 84. I am using them for SUP foil, but have tried the H2 and H4 kiting too. The Infinity wing pops up onto foil in anything, it becomes a little challenging for me to keep it in the water with waves bigger than waist high. So I think it would be only useful k...

Re: Do you need some rocker at tail of board

A buddy and I are DIYing 2 SUP foils. This webpage gives a good discussion of tail options: http://supsurfmachines.com/ including flat, stepped, straight chine, or curved, with explanation of pros/cons of each. He goes with curved. But that's for sup foil, where you need to paddle to catch a wave an...

Re: Best Foil for Absolute Beginner?

Don't go alibaba. Quality is too variable, you won't know if your problems are normal learning curve or crappie gear. Instead buy a name brand used with a plan to resell when you want to upgrade. It will hold it's value vs alibaba. Every brand has a basic entry foil now. Slingshot hover glide. Naish...
