Re: Armstrong Foil is junk

I had a gofoil setup for a while. It was extremely tight when I got it, couldn't extract the wing from the fuselage without a mallet. Six months later it was just not as tight, could easily remove wing by hand. The trend was clear After that I decided there was only one type of connection I was inte...

Re: Kitefoil on wingfoil board?

Thanks, I had seen the video, helpful reminder. Very short lines though (no go in lighter winds). Yes, I meant wing board + kite foil, or whichever foil you want to use. A smaller kite could not pull you out of the water, you’d have to climb on the board and do a “winging” start. I actually tried t...

Re: Pocket Board foil attachment method

This is what I do using t-nuts. It's low tech and cheap and not too difficult. But it's pretty strong enables you to get high precision without high precision tools. I've used it on the last couple of pocket board I'm using where the bolts are countersunk and need to line up exactly. Here is part of...

Re: 33% or 50% size gap for foiling quiver

Hmmm, I think the percentage could be misleading as there is not (to my knowledge) any standard for sizing/gaps in this respect.... If we got a 6 and a 9 m2 kite. The the 6 is 33 % smaller than the 9. But the 9 is 50 % bigger than the 6. So what are we talking about here??? 8) Peter Good point. At ...

Re: 33% or 50% size gap for foiling quiver

33%. For my ideal 3 kite quiver I pick the sweet spot size for the middle kite. Sweet spot means the kite that best suits the most common conditions at the location(s) you most often ride that you consider good. In other words your one quiver kite. Then take the kites on either size no more than 33%...

Re: Wingfoil - is it truly the best for really gusty winds? Better than Peak4?

Wings and kites both have their strong points. We're fortunate to have so many options these days. There are lots of pros and cons between wings and kites but just the sticking to the OP's question: Wings handle gusts really well because you can depower them totally. I'm experienced on clouds and th...

IMHO, you do not many used for sale because they just fly so well that most pilots keep them! :idea:

I have no doubt about that :) I think when people sell them they tend to get sold locally, kept within the family so to say.
