Re: Armstrong Foil is junk

Manufacturing defect in my opinion. Wild guess, but looks like not enough mold release when the pulled core at the factory.

Re: Need winging advise

You’ve lost the big power spike of the kite to get going.

Now it takes pumping skill, wing and board in combination. That doesn’t come right away for anyone.

The solution is simply more wind until those light wind skills come.

Re: Mast screws. How tight?

T-nuts are brass because they won’t seize/self weld when a stainless screw is over tightened. Idiot proof.

Many T-nuts look like stainless steel, but they are actually nickel plated brass.

Re: Mast position on Armstrong board

the HS1850 while large, is a modern slim wing. So it doesn’t have the massive beginner lift of older thick foils. That being said, it does go in very light wind with good pump technique. You will need to be more powered as a newbie until you have the pumping skill. I prefer the HS1850 with 300 tail ...

Re: Board Size Guidance

Not intending to skew off topic... I am also located in FL & considered one of these setups, but concerned after reading about heat-related issues like eps off-gassing & delaminating. Is there certain board construction that may hold up better in the higher heat areas? that is why EPS boards have a...

Thanks Dwight, so I'm best to skip the Sky Wing 95L and go for the Naish S25 5'10" 110L, in your mind?

PS are the the OG Kure Beach Dwight from back in the very early fokiten flame war days?
Yes, retired in Florida. NC too cold in Winter.

Re: Board Size Guidance

You can skip the beginner board. We kite foilers have no trouble wing foiling on day one. Only hurdle is learning to climb aboard the small board and knee start. It doesn’t take long to figure out that part. 108 liters is where you want to land for smallest fun board at your weight. You’re in Florid...

Re: Who are the Wing foilers ?

Former kite foiler, now only wing foil.

Wing foiling allows for a better wave riding experience. Even in bay chop, I can feel and ride the waves better than a kite foil. If waves are your pleasure in life, winging wins when it comes to foils.
