Re: Slingshot Phantasm Carbon foil launch - 2020

Updates? Is the Phantasm release on hold because of production in the China factories or is it a shipping thing? I know with Covid things are on hold but has this project even begun or should I look for another brand to purchase. I really like the quality and modularity of Slingshots foils and would...

Re: Hydrofoil mast position in relation to front wing?

Delta99, are you asking about mast position on the switch fuselage?

If so, starting out you should put the mast through the slot in the wing with the foil all the way back in the tracks.

Re: how short can a mast for freeride/freerace be?!

I use the 30”/76cm mast often. I switch from kite to surf boards so changing the mast can be a pain on the beach. Works great for lightwind kite foiling and moderate chop. Also it is easier when I want to ride a few waves into the shallows. Downsides are higher wind when the big short chop picks up ...

Re: The WetSuit Game: Patagonia R4-R5

I have the R4 and love it it. Plenty warm for va temps. I think the only call for the R5 would be on the coldest days of the year. Great suits and it’s what I switch to after I can’t wear my Rip curl Flashbomb 4/3. Only downsides to the Patagonia are price and they aren’t as flexible as my Flashbomb...

Re: Double Agent vs Alien Air/H4 to start & progress with?

I haven’t ridden both but I have the Alien Air and H2/H5 combo. I like the modularity of the different wings. I also change the mast out for a 24” and paddle foil surf with the same board and wing setup. Slingshot foils are pretty tough as well. Only downside of the slingshot system is the weight. I...

Re: Looking for my first foil board (surf+kite foiling)

I have the alien air as well. Plenty of volume for surfing. Works great with the strap removed and 24” mast. I’m far from mastering it but I’ve had several decent rides up on foil with the H2 wing when there is no wind. The alien air volume also helps during self rescue or light wind relaunch. It ha...

Re: Lecca-Lecca Minima 11m First Flight

I’m on a surf foil also. Riding the H2 slingshot wing. This foil comes up at very slow speeds. I weight about 89 kg/ 197 lbs. Waiting for some decent wind to test the 11 M in. Wind isn’t looking rideable today but possibly this weekend. I did practice launching and landing this week in 5-10 mph wind...

Re: slingshot H2 or H4 for learning jibing and tacking

I ride the H2. It’s definitely way more stable than the H5/hoverglide wing. Not sure if it will help you land more tacks/gybes but it’s low speed stability may help with that. It was night and day difference in my progression learning to foil. I’m still learning gybes though.
