Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

I am not dissing windfoil. It was very deliberate I chose the words kitefoil can be fun in "way less wind than needed for fun windfoil". As riding on a huge formula windfoil board with a 10 m2 sail is maybe fun in itself, IF it wasnt for kitefoil where you can ride in this wind with a very lively ag...

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

Sorry if an odd question, but what does the headline of this thread mean?

"Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?"

Not being native English born I don't know "Intel" from anything but the Intel Coorporation making ICs and CPUs and similar.

But assume it is slang for ???

Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

Amazing we got so different views on this. I have been windsurfing since the start in 1978-79. A few years ago I went windfoiling too, and many of the youngsters here windfoil too, since a year or 1½ year - they learn extremely fast. The "old men" dont really want to change ha haa, as they know it w...

Re: Foiling in the dark

I've done this too now and then, mostly when bigger chop waves and I dont wanna stop because it is good, or I might have gone out after sunset as my only option to get out. You are spot on, one can ride in quite dark conditions really okay. Only difficulty is to avoid ventilation, as one can not see...

Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

I did not understand your first post kitejumping. Took it as kites were not allowed at this lake, thus you wanted to windfoil instead? And now there are suggestions about using a kite on a windfoil? Was a bit confused about your question, but can see now that you want a huge board, but it wont help ...

Re: Wing loading as a metic

BWD is correct, the stab decreases the overall lift a tad on normal foils. Kami, you are correct, "wing loading" is essential. The numbers on me are wrong though, but doesnt matter for the principle really. I am 78 kg (meaning average weight which is 75 to 80 kg), and ride wings from 520 to 1200 cm2...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

I dont think we are haters in any way, and might be very wrong as said... :roll: Yes, it seems like a very different sport as some point out, so could be right, makes no sense to discuss in a kiteforum, although foilsurfing and SUPfoiling and windfoiling are also shared here now and then as some do ...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

Must say I don't believe in it either, eventhough the big brands do :roll:

But let's see, either the wrong bus, or the right one.

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

Foiling didn't really catch on at the start. Only when it became more efficient and practical did it start to really grow. The wings look inefficient and awkward now, but they have room to become more efficient and handle better - and riders will become more skilled, switch stance etc. I don’t thin...
