Re: Naish Pivot 2020

as said before seems like a leak or not pumped up enough in the first place.

Re: Beginner: Pulsion+Ketos+Nugget or Marabou+SlingShot HG+Converter or DwarfCraft

A lot of people destroy their first foil while learning Gear will not hold back your foiling progression but your skill will. 12kts+ conditions will be best for learning for a while As always don't overthink the gear research process get a decent and cheap working foil board combo (look for the smal...

Re: why are mast tracks so far from tail of board?

@flyboy yes that is also possible, to less tail... In the future the product websites should show us* where the boxes/mounting options are located on the board and hopefully also a measurement for foils, so that everyone will know before trying, that this or that setup works... *same with general pr...

Re: 2020 Dakine Fusion Seat Harness - Dark Crimson

@alford all good ;) had a similar picture in mind, when typing above.

I am actually a quite small and lightweight guy, waist wise an S would fit but it seems my butt is an M in the last years version...

Re: 2020 Dakine Fusion Seat Harness - Dark Crimson

the colour would be a neat addition to the existing colours. but please make the neopren part of the leg straps a bit bigger (seemed unnecassery small in the last years version and even started to rip off, if the webbing leg straps were loosen up in order to get the connection point higher up) and e...

Re: Small pocket board - looking for recommendation/advice

@at all the short board users (<100cm) How did the lack of swing weight progressed your riding style? Can you actually carve harder, jump higher (strapless), spin around more 360 --> 720 in the water/air, ride a wave more aggressive...? Or is it more about the feel that you enjoy? How do you handle ...

Re: Pocket board building

any experimenting with "eco" pocketboards like TomW method of wood "core" with flax fibers and the greenest possible epoxy or different resin? or natural extruded, printed foam as core material? anyone going down this route, yet? or will something strong and long lasting eventually always end on the...

Re: state of the art wave kite foiling

so cool to see how many different styles there are under the hydrofoil umbrella. as I and others have said before,it is def. a strength of the hydrofoil platform, making all sorts of different "crappy" conditions more exciting and interesting. exploration days. I guess that the different "wave" cond...
