Re: LP Foil Review

anyone try the 720 and 590 wings? which is better for the waves? The larger wing for most people is gonna be better ... a little slower and more stable. I will eventually have 2 set-ups one for waves with a large wing and shorter mast and one for free ride smaller wing long mast. I would definitely...

Re: LP Foil Review

Have you tried a smaller board with the longer mast? I recently tried a buddies 42" dwarfcraft with the current Lift foil. It definitely improved the carving. I guess is has something to do with the swing weight of the board. Most of us ride strapless here. I was curious about that... so you like t...

Re: LP Foil Review

A longer mast is better in the waves. I'm certain individuals have their own preference that varies with my opinion but skilled riders I speak to prefer a shorter mast for more control- approx 35" is what I'm speaking of btw. A longer mast might be beneficial for large swell free riding when beatin...

LP Foil Review

Spent last summer learning to foil first on an LF short mast, then riding the Lift/Slingshot Alien combo which was great for progressing and good in swell. The Lift is a large symmetrical front wing with a lot of lift and decent balance. The only complaint I had with the MHL was it's sharp edges, I ...

Core Section review

Just wanted to post a quick review of the Core Section 7. I'm 185 lbs., a seasoned kiter in waves, I started foiling last year. I rode the Section with an LP high aspect foil in 16 to 22 mph. First thing is Core kites have exceptional build quality, and probably the best bar on the market (for me), ...

Re: Problems with pivot top end

My only feedback from my experience with both kites is Pivot is a much more direct kite than the Drifter and I would fly it at least one size smaller. The Drifter has a "ghosty" feel that seems to allow the kite to handle gusts better-doesn't pull as hard. I can see the merits of either depending on...

North Mono

Re: distance front wing from mast?

closer to the mast is stronger with less stress on the fuselage , trim and mounting position of the mast on the board take care of any other differences, no perceivable performance advantage to the different designs, just strength IMO. I have to disagree on the " less stress on the fuselage " (stre...
