Re: DIY PU Tubing

Bought some 6mm OD 4mm ID PU tube on eBay and tried it out today on my DIY bar. Worked like a charm! Glad I won’t be going through my 4mm Amsteel sheeting line so fast. No friction issues so far. Hardly noticed a difference. I have a bunch of extra tubing if anyone wants some.

Re: Plywood surf foil wing

Just to follow up on this and encourage anyone else thinking of giving a plywood surf foil a try, or any surf foil for that matter, do it! I’ve been riding it exclusively since first session and now that I’m dialed in, it’s awesome! I found I can actually push it almost as fast as my Stringy foil wi...

Re: riding goofy side

If strapless, you might try learning to ride with feet parallel and toes to the nose of the board like downhill ski. Then progress to more and more goofy from that. Or maybe that’s another layer and too complicated.

Re: Peak 4 broken line/tree mishap

Brunel splice is great for many uses but not for precise lengths unless you’re very good at it. Sewn splices are much easier to get exact lengths. Or am I missing something?

Plywood surf foil wing

I’ve been wanting to try a surf foil sized wing but couldn’t justify the cost of a new foil so I tried my hand at building one for my much loved Stringy foil. I glued 2 layers of already warped 1/2in plywood together and shaped with hand tools. I just shaped a airfoil that felt right, semi-symmetric...

Re: Straightening bent aluminum

I bent my Stringy foil fuse the same way running aground hard, about 2mm deviation. I just took it off, jumped on it a few times, and it’s good as new. Has lasted more than a year since with multiple more groundings.

Re: Fun riding the new Duotone Wing

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Can you pump a monofoil? Could you foil surf one and pump back out to the next wave?
