Re: Advice needed for new foil board

I'm loving riding a pocket board.. makes me feel so good :D I'm not the greatest foiler and still find 1m & strapless is easy enough as long as you're decently powered.

Re: New hydrofoil / wave kite and bar: Kauper-XT

No one has said.. "pintxo" is an awkward/ugly word to pronounce in English. How do you say that? Pin-texo? Pynt-x-o? Pint-kso?

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.

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

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.
