Re: Non corroding hook knife?

Get a hook knife with either a ceramic or titanium blade. A 316 stainless blade might work a while, but any 440 stainless will rapidly corrode.
There are many version of this polycarbonate handle knife with a ceramic blade.

Re: New SS Phantasm to Old SS Aluminum Mast(s)

@bkkite, Re: HG mast to Phantasm fuse - Yeah, that's what I started this thread about. Re: HG fuse to Phantasm mast - I think there is a reason aluminum masts top out at about 90 cm. Flex... bending... Don't think anybody makes an aluminum mast longer than that. You could fabricate an adapter to mou...

Re: New SS Phantasm to Old SS Aluminum Mast(s)

Forgot to mention... In that Kitesurfing mag video, Alex mentions there is also a longer chord aluminum mast for windfoiling use. And on the same corner shelf he grabbed the adapter from, looks [I'm visually speculating] like a Tuttle to twin-track adapter...

Re: New SS Phantasm to Old SS Aluminum Mast(s)

Grigorib,
Thanks for the suggestion. Jim is kindly making me an adapter!
BTW, SS will be offering a Hoverglide [aluminum] mast to Phantasm fuse adapter for 2022.

Re: Long term review of Nobile Split foil/surf and twintip

Re: Infinity Split Foil Foil Mount and Footstrap Inserts Foil mount pattern - Until the 2020 model of the Infinity Foil, the M6 inserts are fixed at 90 x 165 mm, which is the most common 4-bolt spacing standard. However, if you have a Liquid Force, Cloud9 or other foil with 90 x 140 mm spacing, you ...

Re: Slingshot Machine V1 big air kite 2022

Maybe the wraps come off this kite at AWSI for the North American market? I also found out that there is a new Slingwing V3, which just got released in Europe before the US.

Re: light wind twintip (but not doors)

My vote is for a Slingshot Glide. I have the larger 159 of the "9s" [149/159] version. Thru the years, there are probably 3-4 different graphics on the same board shape and design.Think only the shape of the tips have changed [not totally squared off] on the new version [less spray in the face?]. Th...

AWSI Waterman Legend

Just a photo [from a friend in HR] of a waterman legend who thought it was important to show up at AWSI. No marketing intended. I haven't owned anything Naish/Mistral related since a Mistral Ecstasy in the mid '90s, but I've always admired Robby. I'm amazed that he had the bandwidth to show up. Wish...

Re: kite for foiling in 11-15 knots

Due to frustration when trying to foil in threshold (8-12kt) conditions, using a 10 to 12m 3-strut kites, I bit the bullet and bought a 9m UFO 1.1. At my low skill level, the result was... wow! No more constant backstalling and having to give so much attention to flying the kite, when the wind drops...
