Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Stick one on fuselage at mast interface.
It helps protect the powder coat and can slow water ingress.
But the water gets in anyway, but even full of water it weighs less than a SS mast.

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

I moved from the Zeeko Black&White to the Std Spitfire The main difference using the Zeeko Pocket Air board was that with straps in the two inline positions I had only used the front strap and was slowly moving it back , my rear foot was always in front of rear strap. On going to Spitfire this stanc...

Re: Hydrofoiling: Why you need a short mast - Foil Fridays

I think these foil Friday videos are more a marketing tool for the shop making them. And tend to the sales side of the information highway. Maybe short masts are on sale this week? For learning a short mast helps at a very small section of the learning curve. More likely moves the problem to another...

Re: Wanted - Carver wing a Zeeko foil

The Blue&White is the first Alloy one with the Alloy wings. The Black&White was the G10 version of that.
The next White&Blue had the anhedral wing.

Re: Wanted - Carver wing a Zeeko foil

We have seagrass here in summer and it’s a pain.
But my Std wings on Spitfire seems to take maybe 5-6 strands before you feel a vibration. Any more and it slowly just sinks.
The XXLW starts to vibrate and wobble then you get dragged to a halt. There’s always about three handfuls to clear off.

Re: (almost) tool-less foil setups

Bolts only need tightening too a stretch range where the bolt have some stretch within its range of elasticity.

Over tightening just kills the elasticity and promotes both failure and loosening.

Re: Zeeko Bullet 2018

The Bullet is fast and without loss of control. My ride with it’s Freeride wing showed it to be as easy as green&white but less restriction to how fast you wanted to go. A slightly more agile feeling initiating turns. Never topped out it’s speed in my ride but keeping up with Slalom windsurfing boar...

Re: Wanted - Carver wing a Zeeko foil

There is a lot of skill gain to be had by learning on the faster Freeride wings. Skills that are somewhat lost on the bigger surf wings. But skills that are valuable in your overall progression. One is speed control and being confident to roll into a carve at speed and complete a gybe at speed. Well...
