Re: Custom made quick release

You could use velcro on the side of the cleat to make the line "stick" Regis.

Like many/most bars.

Re: Custom made quick release

What is the "floaty rope of central trims" Regis??? I love these, they are small light and easy in every way to make yourself, and 100 % customable regarding sheeting distance and so on, as it can be moved on the depower line. https://www.clamcleat.com/pub/media/catalog/product/cache/dc5170d444cd2c7...

Re: Too Heavy to Wingfoil

I am 242lbs and almost 60 ..... I started in 2019 on the 8'0 Naish Hover. I had the original Naish XXL foil and had no issues getting going in 20 knots on the original 5 metre Duotone. These days I ride the AXIS 1120 (2100cm2), a 125L One Ocean board, 6.5m DLAB Unit on 10 knot days and I am able to...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

jkrug, do you recommend the Peak 8m size for foiling in <10kt winds? I’m 160lbs Thanks both my peak 4's (6m and 8m) have developed tears in the trailing edge that look like very thin rectangles about 1 inch long. they're both probably about 4-5 years old, so in no way am i complaining about the lon...

Re: Too Heavy to Wingfoil

Interesting question - but to the claim: "From what people say, big boards suffer a lot with wind interference..." I can say it is bull... Yes, if you are ONE rider, having a small and a big board, of course above claim is correct - especially long huge beginnerboards. But for two different weight r...

Re: Do you ever buy a "spare" kite

Never... BUT, I might have the opportunity to get a 5 m2 kite not used or almost not used, and one I know is good at a good price suddenly. So have had three 5 m2 kites quite often, slightly different characteristics. They dont hold up, as used a lot when riding waves, and might be thrashed so they ...

Re: Okay, 10-15knot winging is actually fun!

Winging in light winds and flat water is super boring. If there are waves then it can be fun. I ride the same board and foils for either kiting or winging. When the wind is light I put up a kite. When the wind is strong I put up the wing (I'd say the line is drawn at 12-13mph winds). When I first s...
