Re: Efoil now shipping....anyone tossing their kite?

I don't understand how one can do any proper wave riding with something that weighs 35kg and has the additional drag of a motor with propellers.

Re: Goove Skate foilboard, durability and build quality

Last wish, move the tracks back another 2cm. I still mount the 633 way back on this board and the front V-straps way forward. My feeble 2c. Good point on the track position, I am alright with mine as I weigh 90kg, and my 633 sits 2 cm from the rearmost end of the track, however a sailing buddy who ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

You do a really good job with production quality and some of the graphics. Your observations are also good but I question the conclusion that Soul is better for the less experienced foiler. I would think a lower aspect kite like the HL would be easier to fly when trying to learn foiling moves.

Re: Efoil now shipping....anyone tossing their kite?

If they get the retractable propeller perfected then it becomes a legit sport for foiling waves (and 1.5-2x longer run times). For flat water use, I'd say better than a PWC but worse than a stand up jetski. Realistically though you could buy a PWC and foil surf behind it for more fun on flatwater. ...

Re: Next foil for light weight old guy

The Lifts are very well built and super smooth. Consider the 150 for your size. LMAO, if I had a penny for every time some says a MHL product was well built ... I'd have 4 pennies... Inside joke, but if you were ever inside one you'd get it !!! LOL :thumb: Not sure what you are saying but I am refe...

Re: MFC Hydros foils

the 82 and 92 masts will be in europe in a month, also smaller wings. 70 is for pure freestyle, 82 best of both worlds and 92 for those who like to have more room or edge harder. Thanks for confirming that longer masts are in development. Can you restate the wings sizes you list above in cm2? When ...

Re: starting on duck tack to toeside

Ok, can we just call it "tack to toeside"? I tried this and I find I am unable to even attempt it in one move/effort. Any suggestions on how to break it down and practice different parts of it? I have no trouble making hard carves back and forth while just riding. But how to isolate and practice bri...

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

There is some confusion about whether people are discussing the kite or the bar. It has been the experience of several people I know who have attached a bar with 4 equal lines to a brand new Soul and found the "back lines" to be too long. I suspect this was also what reviewer experienced. This is p...
