Re: Latest surf foil design: Gull wing and other stuff

Most skip the simulation and tank testing due to cost, this is still a very small market. If you look at designs operating in similar Reynolds numbers with some of the same design characteristics and you manage to select appropriate foil profiles you can easily arrive at a solution that sails pretty...

Ion Fuse vs. Mystic Vulcanic

Hi! Looking at getting one for this winter and I know a lot of guys use the Ion Fuse, but they are 20% more expensive, and it seems that Mystic might have caught up on the material/design side. A while back Mystic drysuits looked pretty alternative, but now it looks comparable based on images. Anyon...

Re: Shinnster thoughts

Totally worth it and does exactly what it is supposed to. Used it for a while with the 50ish mm fins and some 80 mm more surf style fins. Fun board, rides like a skim but is more stable. Handles chop beautifully and is manageable in high winds as well despite the large size. It is a bit heavy, but y...

Re: North Speedster Combo Foil

Also a few broke in Denmark. The previous design from North also had a lot of issues in the fuselage.

The design of the connections is not great but the amount of failures is surprising.

Re: Pryde CR X

That is probably what it is worth if it is with the board. Here the price is 1000 EUR or double what it is in Canada at the moment excluding board.

Re: Pryde CR X

Tried it once and as everyone has already stated it is heavy and slow. The board is not suitable for use on the foil as it is way too soft. It is just as unpredictable as the first generation race foil I had but was impossible to get beyond 20 knots of speed. The TT is probably ok, but it is big an...
