Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

I do think that these pocket boards have so much to offer. That, combined with a significant market of intermediate foilers looking to upgrade are going to overwhelm suppliers.

Select and order soon. Just sayin

Re: Kanaha Shapes review and other intermediate musings

Big sky, The move for me from medium/large Dwarfcraft 54 to a short board was incredible. This freedom of extra swing weight, ball and chain, unnecessary equipment is so liberating. Allows moves to happen with so much more finesse and ease. I’m currently on the grooveskate and it’s incredible. But I...

Jumping=new love of my life!

I’m 3rd season into foiling, getting 50% tacks etc and always strapless, never rode straps. Yesterday tried straps and first time on Moses 550 (have been on 633), 71cm mast with 12m airush ultra in 10-15mph. I’m 90kg. That wing is crazy fast up wind! So fast I initially thought I would have to aband...

Re: Sitting on foil

Thanks for help. I like that concept of having hand support at right moment to allow for adjustment of body. I’ll try tomorrow!

Sitting on foil

I started trying to get to sitting position while on strapless foil. First time I nailed switch of position and rode for a short bit before exploding (from laughing mostly). My further attempts were +/- Almost a random act and sometimes the timing was so off the foil started rising so fast it was ne...

Re: Shoulders Forward?

Agree with hands free launch. Possible with lower volume pocketboards. Quite neat and easy to learn as stated above. Keeps you riding right away as opposed to messing with board and position, etc. Even with missed tacks where I land on my back, I can just keep rear foot on board and with right press...

Re: riding hands-up

Yes! I have found this to be so fun and great for skill advancement. If I find I’m struggling at learn some component of a move I take a break by riding no hands and pumping and balancing. It resets my posture. Then my attempts at whatever are always better and more in balance.

Re: High Lift Wings like Moses 633 Onda: who is it for?

Who’s it for: Beginners on short mast. Intermediates on ANY length mast for learning maneuvers. Anyone riding on waves especially with any whitewater involved. The foil is so forgiving regarding stall with ventilation that all of the above are so well covered. BTW, I can push the foil as fast as I n...
