Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

I have no problem with people discussing a wing surfer on a kite forum, but proponents shouldn’t be surprised when the discussion isn’t all supportive. People on a kite forum fly kites. Especially for a certain brand of kite foiling, that’s at least half the fun. I love 16kn days because I can break...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

I don't think some on this forum have realised how big SUP is in many places. There would be 50 times more SUPs than kitesurfers and windsurfers combined on the East Coast of Australia. Anyone can SUP so people buy them so the whole family can use the board. There are even SUPs for hire here that c...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

Foiling didn't really catch on at the start. Only when it became more efficient and practical did it start to really grow. The wings look inefficient and awkward now, but they have room to become more efficient and handle better - and riders will become more skilled, switch stance etc. I don’t thin...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Thanks again for all the Input, but could you also Mention how Long/how many sessions you took to get it dialed in? Knowing how long it took someone is artificial because you don’t know how often they went, how long they were out when they went, their experience with directional boards, what kind o...

Re: About real small pocket boards < 1 m, benefits and limits

For the past few weeks, I have been using my home build, which is about 33 inches x 15.5 inches x 1 inch. I have used it flat water, small chop, and small waves. I had never ridden strapless before, and it took a couple of sessions to get the waterstart dialed in. In chop and waves it is more of a c...

Re: The future is big wing and small kite.

Makes lemons into lemonade! Just rode a bit of 15 gusting 30, side side off, really really gusty inside, and it was pretty low stress and easy with parts that were super fun. The swell on the outside were great, it was easy to get there and back, the gusts and holes were pretty easy to navigate on ...

Re: Small Foil kites in High Winds Foiling

I have no experience with a Mono, so I can’t speak directly to your issue. I have ridden my 4m SST in as low as 16kn. It backstalls at that wind speed if I choke it even the smallest bit. You might want to try pulling in a little trim and / or focus on not pulling in on the bar when you waterstart?...

Re: Pocket board building

Tactics to avoid lifting or cracking glass when through drilling: ... Or drill a small pilot hole all the way, then a shallow full width hole from each side, then ream it out to full width... I opted for this solution. It worked. I started using the blocking technique but it splintered a little bit...

What I want is a split board, but instead of packing down for travel, the complete board is a directional and the split board is foil board 😁
Now that’s a great idea
