Re: Recognize this mast?

Does anyone recognize this mast? Carbon with four M6 brass nuts on the top, three at the bottom. I’d like to buy one in a 60-70 cm length. Thanks for any suggestions. John Looks like a mast from the c1 foil from rupel watersports on ali express. If you message them they can make you any size mast y...

Re: One kite for old school AND foiling

Re: trimless bar setup for racing???

Below the bar? Is that 4 inches of depower pulled below the bar?

You wouldnt have lots of leverage to pull the trim but you also wouldnt have to reach over your bar to trim and change your point of balance.

Re: Jumping=new love of my life!

Just because you can't do it doesn't mean its impossible. In 11 knots i have hit 10m on a prodigy and an old tkf foil and I suck compared to some local foilers. so with a fast wing and fast light kite should be able to in 8 knotts. The faster you go the higher the jump and those race foils go fast. ...

Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional

I was thinking of building one of these the other day. My vision would have hinges on the wings so the front wing sits at 1 degree and the rear at -2. Otherwise it will be a horribly inefficient foil. This looks to have both wings set at 0 which will be rideable but lack top speed and stability.

Re: the right sized kite

As others have said I think it will depend highly on the wing style you ride on but also your body weight. I have flown a 5m in 12-14 knots on a medium aspect and had no problem going up wind but I am a lightweight. I actually had to loop the kite twice at times to get up(once to get on the board an...

Looks like huge wing area :)

Not sure why so thick, let the wing bend, does not need to be super rigid:)

Sretno i

Pozdrav !


Iirc ideally the thickness being 9% of the chord and anything more than that slows terminal velocity. What is the ratio?

Re: More tacking questions

Just move your foot back to near (in front of) the back strap. You can put it in later. :wink: CG +1. This is what I do. I step my back foot on top of the front screw for the back foot strap. I actually ride like this until I go for a jump and then quickly jam my foot in the strap then send it. If ...

Re: Importance of foil weight/float

A floaty board with a heavy foil is a PITA to strappless water start. I have a manta and I ride it in straps because I like to jump but if you like strappless you want a set up that you can roll the board on its side easier. I have tried a double agent and even though the foil/mast isn't super light...
