Re: Auto-Zenith high performance kite

looks great and interesting for foiling.

but what happens if there is not much or no line tension? for example on fast downwind courses or surfing a wave?

cheers

Re: Raising the rocker

would love to have such a "shim plate" for my foil (165x90mm). how to get a easy and good result? what materials to use and how to work with it? or does anybody know if there is an item like this anywhere available to buy?

how short can a mast for freeride/freerace be?!

hello

aa written i want to know how short a mast can be for freeride or freerace. most of the foilers use masts between 90-110cm. thats too long for my shallow homespot. does it make sense to use a 70-80cm mast for freerace?!

cheers

Re: Foilboard (Pocket/Strapless) Paulownia

thx! one layer each side with 200g? is there any flex? how thick is the paulownia core? do you have no epoxy rails? just overlapped glass? foil mount is with epoxy? with how many layers do you reinforce the area where the foil is adapted? total wheigt of your board?
