Re: Spotz2 foil for beginner?

I bought one with a larger "learner" wing, tried 6 or 7 times, struggled to get deep enough, couldn't get the feel of it, gave up and sold it. I thought foiling might be too hard for me. A year later I Bought an axis foil with a 450mm mast and I was foiling on day one. I wouldn't recommend.

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

Junebug and Grigorib, are those home made? If so would you mind sharing a little how they are made?

(Edit: found the thread, never mind)

Re: Hydrofin? Any insights on this?

I'm fairly convinced that due to airfoil shape+ laws of physics there will never be a half decent bidirectional foil. That vid does nothing to change my mind.

Re: Zeeko Bullet 2018

I'm at the stage where I think I'd like a faster foil and a slower foil for my next foil 😂 I love speed and I love carving as well. I like alloy foils. If the bullet does both with a change of wings, it could be great.. I can't work out why there's no buzz or even reviews out there, as opposed to sa...

Re: Zeeko Bullet 2018

Does anyone have a review of the bullet? Did anyone try one with both speed wing and Carver wing?

Re: Game changer - Onewheel teaches how to turn on a foil

Just be careful guys. At 40 I got into long distance pump skateboarding. Had a real nice custom board (Roe Triton with don't trip poppy trucks etc) bought a 2nd shorter pump board, soda factory with all the gear inc special bushings at $20 each. One of those bushings split and dropped out mid carve,...

Back on topic, has anyone tried the slingshot style foil rather than the takuma style?

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I have ordered a 60 cm and 76cm mast and it was +50 for the extra mast. I would have preferred 40cm and 76 as I am using it for teaching but I had to wait longer for a custom length. But yes, they are available and for a small outlay. I understand galvanic corrosion to occur between the stainless s...
