Re: Tef gel, cooper slip, silicone for bolts

I used Tefgel and disassembled and washed each session. I guess I’m paranoid, and eventually sold my alloy foil. But although Tefgel is super sticky, I kept all the bolts in a small plastic bag, and never got Tefgel where it wasn’t supposed to be.

Re: Gong foils?

Hi I've had both Hellvator (older carbon) and Allvator (newer alloy) foils from Gong. The Allvator is good value - I've had zero problems with it over the last 6 months. Board quality is OK. With a medium Surf foil I can ride down to walking speed, so gybing, toe-side etc. is much easier. No issues ...

Re: Swap Gong Allvator & Moses Fluente

I'm using a 65cm mast, and the mast is in the maximum rear position. Footstraps are in the middle (third in 5 holes). I still felt that there was a touch too much front foot pressure, so I moved the mast back another 2.5 cm by using a plate with holes that are not at the absolute rear of the the pla...

Re: Swap Gong Allvator & Moses Fluente

The Gong SUP/surf wing is a revelation. So slow; toe-side and heel-side turns are trivially easy, especially with a fast inflatable kite. I feel like I've progressed more in 2 sessions than the previous 2 years: tacks, gybes seem within reach for the first time.

Re: Swap Gong Allvator & Moses Fluente

I have the Gong wing and a 65cm mast. The wing is huge, but will foil at very low speed. Top speed feels slow but “fast enough”. Foil breaches on the 65cm mast are mostly saveable - I’m not used to anything less than 90cm. The alloy fuselage and mast is heavy, certainly compared to my old Horue H13 ...

Re: Possible Hydrofoil sale scam

I was scammed on ikitesurf. Lost a lot of money for an imaginary board.

I’m afraid I’d avoid all sellers on that site, unless you can look them in the eye or confirm identity
