Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?

That last Ketos vid is not really much about rail to rail but is still cool as F! Makes me wonder if this style is better categorized by the board than the type of riding or even the foil! Cycling is categorized by the bike, the terrain is implied. I think once on a pocket board, the type of foil an...

I ride the Lift 170 mounted with the rear bolts 6" from the tail.

Re: Pre and post kiting nutrition

Echoing what's been said, I find temp to be a major influence. If I'm a bit dehydrated or fasted or tired, I'm usually alright as long as I stay warm. Any of those factors can make me less resilient, but temp is one of the bigger deciding factors of how I come away from it. Getting cold is a HUGE en...

Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?



Just wanted to add that I think little airs are a killer aspect to this style of riding and add a great element to otherwise bland conditions.

learning to break out the foil in any and all ways is a blast.

Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?

I'd love to try a hydros. They look the biz. Love the carving in that Snowboard clip! I think the big stab on the 170 I'm on is definitely on the big side, might trim it down some day but for now can appreciate it at carving speed. Like I said, gets pretty locked in once the speed gets up, but gives...

Re: At English Natives: difference Roll vs Rotation?

Exactly, to elaborate a bit, pure rotation is spinning around the vertical axis, where in a roll the axis is off vertical with a component around the horizontal axis.

Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?

Well, most wingers are on boards 10-20x the volume of the kiter's board with all the swing weight that entails. That right there pretty much makes it a different thing altogether, but there is also the big wing in your hand as apposed to a 45cm bar, the soft power of said wing as apposed to the inst...

Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?

Argument eh. Aren't you a speed guy? I bet there are foils that suit that kinda thing and people that like to discuss if there actually needs to be a vert component to wings and stabs, or the nuance of low drag component joining and the optimum fuse material. Well this ain't a thread about that and ...

Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?

Yeah, I buy that you can ride any foil in a style, and that what we are talking about here is a style, but there will definitely be set ups that suit and those that don't. High aspect, smaller wings, long masts, boards with length and swing weight.... Plenty of things that crimp your style when your...

Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?

Also very much in this camp and also on the lift 170. I have tried higher aspect wings, and prefer the lower aspect wing shape in spite of its noticeable drag. The 170 is very similar to the 633 in planform. That low aspect shape is just the nicest to go rail to rail down swell. Have tried small hig...
