Re: Good Travel Bag: 101cm Mast with Pocket Board?

I am worried about baggage handling and traveling with a foil (after a number of damagad surfboards, even with good travel boardbag 😡). Have been thinking about a hardcase style bag like this snowboard case. Length is adjustable, so can suit any masts. It would just mean making a very narrow pocket...

Re: Best pocketboard for hydrofoil?

I’m riding the Axis Tray 94. It’s a really great board and impressively light at 2kg. Feels quite solid too. Very happy with my purchase and I’d happily do it again. My only complaints are that it’s a tad wider than a few of the foil bags available on the market. It also has a bare carbon finish whi...

Re: My custom travel bag for pocket foil boards.

Here's the Nobile bag as requested https://www.silentsports.com/kiteboarding/travel-bags/nobile-check-in-bag-split/kn17fo29/ Not sure why they don't list the dimensions of the bag on their site. The board listed above is 90cm. But this one is 110. Seems quite a bit narrower than the one you had mad...

Re: My custom travel bag for pocket foil boards.

What does it cost to get a custom bag built? I was thinking of building one myself, but materials alone will be quite expensive.

Re: Lift surf series wing sets

I've been using Lift wings for 3 years and love them. I started on the 110 but liked the 130 more. I bought a 170 and it was fine but I always used the 130. I recently purchased the 150 surf wing with a 40 tail. I absolutely love it. The tail is slightly smaller (I may choose the 30) but it's more ...

Re: Splicing my first set of lines

I have a few questions for you: 1 - Are the line diameters the same? Often time the front lines can be a bit heavier than the steering lines. When you bury the tail, the line length shrinks! The shrink is more pronounced in the thicker diameters as well. Best advice I can give is to splice one end w...

Re: Hydrofoil protections

After frustrations with poor luggage handling at the airport, I’ve decided to chase a totally new method of protecting my foil. I’ve made an “exoskeleton” that attaches to the foils. No part of the wings can make contact with the ground, as it’s all constrained from the fuselage. This is really a Li...

I bought a large hard sided suitcase and I pack my lift wing in the middle of everything. No issues.
Could you link me to the bag you’re using?

Traveling with Lift 170

Just recently picked up a Lift Classic 170 without considering the fact that it doesn't break down and may not fit in my mystic golf bag. The width of the wing will technically fit, though it pokes into the sides aggressively. I'm afraid that the wingtips are going to get damaged while traveling and...

Re: is it that easy to splice my own lines, SK99 600kg or-

Getting brummels the same length is NOT hard. I've done countless sets with brummels, never without issues. The key to this is cutting all of the lines to the same length, and marking the line where you want the loop to fold. Once you do this, its easy to adjust the loop slightly right before you lo...
