Re: Durability of current Lift foils

I have had the 2017-18 110 and 150 wings for over a year. I’m pretty careful about not hitting bottom (sand), but I’m not perfect, and, so far, I’ve had no damage to the wings. I did get water in the mast (who knows why), but they sent me a new one, no questions asked. I absolutely love their produc...

Re: Hydrofoil/sportfishing

Thx for posting, that is great footage ! Guess the shark didn’t make it ? I don’t think hitting them kills them, even if you hit them at speed. I’ve hit scores of them, and I’ve never seen one go belly up. I guess it is possible the impact is so severe that it ultimately leads to their death. I don...

Re: Hydrofoil/sportfishing

I used to ride a Lift 110. I probably hit a shark 1 out of every 3 sessions and sometimes multiple times a session. Now I ride a Lift 150. It is slower than the 110 and has a low-level hum at speed. I haven’t hit one in months. I don’t know if it’s because of the slower speed or the hum, or both, bu...

Re: Foil Board DIY

About 2.5 years after starting this thread, I ended up making a board. It’s a little smaller than my original design, but I’m a little better at foiling now. http://i64.tinypic.com/34xqt15.jpg http://i65.tinypic.com/sybev8.jpg As fate would have it, I’m injured, so I can’t try it out yet. Hoping to ...

Re: Fatality in France

I give the throat slash (or two) if something is wrong. It’s universal. We use certain hand signals because they reflect what is happening in the real world. Thumb goes up to signal let go so I can put the kite up. Head tap signals I’m gonna bring this thing down from above you. A head tap isn’t ins...

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

I ride with sunglasses on my face, over my eyes. I used to not wear them because I could never see the water as well with them as without, but my eye doctor told me I needed to start wearing them because I have the beginning stages of macular degeneration. I foil most of the time now, and it’s not q...
