Re: Lift 200 surf enough for winging

Funny. Thanks Everyone. I'm selling it and will price it to sell. Just went whole hog on an Armstrong setup.

Lift 200 surf enough for winging

I'm an experienced kite foiler. I happen to have a new lift 200 surf wing sitting around. I'm near 80kg or 175 pounds. I'd like to get a wing board and wing and use my lift setup to see if I like it. IT's a much lower barrier to entry.

The 200 is (1290 cm2).

How to convert Lift wing sizes

Hi all. I have a lift 200 surf wing. How does this size convert to the typical measurement of wings. I'm an experienced foiler but am looking at giving winging a go. I'd love to use the 200 for that as I don't love it for kite foiling. Anyone have an idea? Thanks.

Re: Large foil floats, any ideas?

You're one of the those guys, huh? Okay, call it 5 kts. The wind was nuking and hitting the side of the board (foil was on the downwind side) at what appeared to be a perfect angle and the board took off. There was a small wake. I can body drag, especially in high winds, far fast than I can swim. I ...

Re: flysurfer soul 15m ?

I mostly foil with Peak4's but I have the Soul 15 and just used it this past weekend. I'm 77kg's. It's a beast. Wind was anywhere from 11 to 14kts. I was using a small board so I did struggle in the lower wind range but it still worked. I was delighted to get some pretty decent jumps in too. I don't...

Re: Large foil floats, any ideas?

Good question, Peter. I consider myself to be a good body dragger. I don't try to go straight upwind but, rather, work my way there through tacking. I was on a Peak4 4m. Let me be clear. The board, on it's side, hauled ass almost straight upwind at a clip of 8 to 10 kts. I chased it several hundred ...

Re: Large foil floats, any ideas?

Thanks guys. That sucks! One of the best parts of foiling is waiting for it to just porpoise down to you. Guess I will try it again when it's not nuking out but that is really disappointing. My 150 2-piece will sink eventually but it's clearly slower

Large foil floats, any ideas?

Hi. I've been foiling exclusively for 4 years. I've been on lift foils for the past 3 years and love them. I have the 110, 130 and 170 - all fantastic. I recently purchased the lift 150 and 200 2-piece surf foil for travel. My first day with the 200 I mounted it on a small Kanaha Shapes super light ...

Just in case somebody has not seen it: This is the video that tells the same story. Worth watching again, especially if still in confinement!



Enjoy!

Thanks for posting. It's such a great movie.
