Re: need new bag for my hydrofoil

Check out the Armstrong foil bag. Good price and very roomy.
I assemble my foil and use the bag to carry kites, harness,beer, etc etc to beach. I also have an unused LF bag in perfect shape if you want to go back to that route.

Armstrong vs LF

I finally upgraded my foilfish to an Armstrong hs1050. I was having a great time on the lf. Upwind, downwind toeside and long runs . Well, back to the basics with the new beast. I can’t ride the board on the water and barely am able to go 100m. Couple questions.... Is muscle memory so ingrained its ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12m or 15m

Agree with cwood. I just traded in a 12m. In gusty fickle turbulent winds a 12m can “taco” resulting in a mess. Lighter more agile kites can be more maneuverable and therefore airworthy under the same conditions.

Offshore winds

Is it reasonable to use a wing to foil in offshore winds. I’ve read various posts where this is mentioned. Can you (if required) swim in if for some reason you are unable to foil? This goes against my windsurfing and kiting background. Do wings produce such little drag that this is easily accomplish...

Small lei

Gentlemen, I am looking for a recommendation for a small (under) 8m lei to use with a newly purchase Armstrong foil. I just sold a soul and am not a fan of foil kites due to local conditions.

Re: Mako 150 fins setup

will try tomorrow different configurations but I was mainly thinking if it would be of some benefit if I leave the middle fins as they are and add one more fin on each side bellow them (TT fins) I did that exact thing on a mako king. It improves pointing ability a bit. Equal foot pressure helps with...
