Re: Liquid Force Rocket vs Liquid Force Galazy vs Slingshot Dwarfcraft Boards

I really loved the Rocket Fish. It handled any touchdown (and there were lots) and it was really comfortable. I now ride a Kanaha and Groove Skate but still look at the Rocket Fish with fondness. If you are near New England I will sell you mine cheap.

Re: Travel bag for pocket quiver

Good for you Tom. As a life long hockey player I can tell you they're super tough too. Hockey gear is always wet, smelly, sharp skate blades and they come in out of your car very roughly and always up and down cement stairs. They last for years. Any Lift wing users take note, it's one of the only ba...

Re: Travel bag for pocket quiver

I have the 44" and it handles the Groove skate, Mast and several one piece wings, kites, etc. https://www.icewarehouse.com/Hockey_Goalie_Bags/catpage-GBAGS.html For smaller boards I use this https://www.icewarehouse.com/Bauer_650_Carry_Bags_37/descpage-B6CBL.html I did not get charged for the smalle...

Re: Travel bag for pocket quiver

For big trips I use the Epic bag and you can bring everything, including fishing gear which I usually bring. It's too big however. Last year I started using hockey bags because my board choice is smaller these days. I did not get charged for the hockey bag but that's not guarantee. I also bought a h...

Re: Durability of current Lift foils

I've owned the latest interation for 2 summers including the 32" and 36" masts as well as the 110, 130 and 170 wings. They are solidly built. I don't take great care of my gear and I've also had some brutal contact with rocks and it's incredible how little damage there was on the wing (small scratch...

Re: Travel bag for Lift 170

Yes, this is the challenge with Lift wings. I've searched forever for a good solution. Here's what I've found. For check-in the epic golf bag fits the wings and board really well. It's giant and great for a big trip and tons of gear but too big for a lot of travel IMO. I've found that hockey bags wo...

Re: Nobile travel bags, questions

TomW, a large goalie bag will fit a 120cm Groove Skate, lift wings and any length mast and lots of kites and gear. Trust me, the Nobile bags are so shallow they are not functional unless you're going to the tropics (no wetsuit, etc). I've purchased 2 of them and I bought the split. I don't mean to r...

Re: Nobile travel bags, questions

I have the bag and I don't think it will. It's tight for an 80cm Stringy mast. There isn't a lot of depth either. I was totally disappointed in the bag. the best option is a hockey bag. It has more depth and when I used it last summer I didn't get charged, though I made sure it was well under the we...

Re: 1 bag that fits all my kit? Surf board, twin tip, 2-3 kites.

I searched for years for this and used several. The Epic Golf bag is huge and fits all of that. It has wheels too. It's very wide and fits large, 1 piece hydrofoil wings (Lift) too.

Re: Kurtis Goggles

I've used Kurtis for several years. When this thread came out I was disappointed because I really love them. I took advice from the thread and bought the LiP glasses. The Kurtis glasses are way better. The are light, flexible and super comfortable and they float. The Lip might look more like normal ...
