Re: Drone foiling?

I’d pay $400 for a drone that would pick Foil and me up and take outside shore break.
It could then go back and wait.

Re: Titanium Screws

What appears to be described here is a Salt spray test. Used to measure the adhesion of coatings by measuring how long it takes for rust to creep under a protective coating. In the above it appears to compare a corrosive effect on various grades of stainless steel. A salt spray test is applying a mi...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

The std wing does take a bit of adapting to and does not like the back foot too far forward.
This sensitive nature has its own rewards.
The XLW is more forgiving
The XXLW is extremely forgiving

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Pumping on the XXLW Spitfire for me is a series of let it rise quickly then stomp on front for a slightly accelerating dive then back up. Certainly I don’t notice a need to react quicker in this department. As a Windfoil I have progressively been moving it forward and soon will be in the Sup positio...

Re: Disadvantages of larger foil wings?

For kitefoiling in waves there is a balance, as I Feel it. Between wave power and kite power. Even with kite switched off and drifting it still adds to the equation. The bigger wings on bigger waves over power the balance and the extra concentration to control kite takes away from the enjoyment of r...

Re: statement from Lou

Speed costs money. More money more speed. The lightest wins, going lighter costs money. Sponsors look for winners. So it costs money to become a winner that sponsors will see.

The Remora fits a gap in the market not try’s to cover the whole spectrum.
