Re: Cabrinha AV8 Full Carbon Race Hydrofoil

Sweeting looking foil, but I wonder if they will update the wingtips to flatten and put in some more twist like Moses, chubanga and ML have done. Seems to really help with the tip ventilation. I've wondered that as well, from a pragmatic standpoint it seems unlikely that this will get tweaked a ton...

Re: Cabrinha AV8 Full Carbon Race Hydrofoil

Makes more sense to me than convincing everyone to buy a new quiver of Cabrinha inflatables for more money than a quiver of used R1V2's. Yeah, but Cabrinha uses double-ripstop-quantum-magnified-antichaffing-bridled-fireball-gamechanger technology in their kites. I heard R1V2's are made out of 150 t...

Cabrinha AV8 Full Carbon Race Hydrofoil

I saw a couple of places have this listed for sale...this is a pre-preg, factory-manufactured version of the Delta Hydrofoil race design (the Delta products are still hand-made in the USA by the designer and his mom). Should come to market soon with a new kite as well for use in One Design course ra...

Re: Camber induced kites?

It's possible to create a high performance wing that doesn't come with all the compromises of a rigid wing using a double-skinned sail: https://www.sail-world.com/news/209295/AC75-Double-Luff-Mainsail That said, kite design is very different than sail design. The double-sail America's Cup boats will...

Re: is carbon much better??

Yes, it's insanely better just from the weight perspective. Safer when transiting the surf/impact zone in waves, easier to travel with and transport, better performance all around. I'd be more worried about long term durability and corrosion on a foil that wasn't all composite. The only drawback is ...

Re: Confused about pitch control

Imagine the wing riding through the water level, perfectly vertical. All of the lift is pushing upwards. When you initiate a turn, the lifting vector is now no longer pushing upwards, it's pushing towards the center of the turn, so some component of your upwards lift is now gone and needs to be repl...
