Re: Eleveight One Strut Series

If they say it's fast, I have a tendency to believe them because the WS is FAST. The kite profile pictures look almost identical between this one and the WS. Strutless kites sit way deep in the window, not sure how this single strut would have great upwind, specially with the profile looking so simi...

Re: foiling with a big board

I've been looking at the Slingshot Outwit SUP for something similar. I've been dreaming of using a kite to go upwind and then do a downwinder foil run on a SUP for a while. The Outwit 5'10 seems perfect with 100L volume and front/rear straps. A Peak4 5m would fit into a tiny waterproof backpack. The...

Re: Eleveight One Strut Series

Daaaamn! Been thinking what my Cabos/WS would feel like strutless and they drop this! Though my Peak4 5m has been insane with the foil and I haven't bothered with the 11m Cabo or 11m WS v1 in a while. This is very tempting though. Wonder why they rate it poorly for waves?

I'm not even sure if you can mount Hoverglide mast.
The Slingshot plate will fit on the Foil Fish
You can call these guys for reference

Re: 2015 lf foil fish in 2019 as beginner board?

I learned on the original foil fish. It's heavy but it's bomb proof; rotomolded plastic. The biggest issue will be the lack of tracks for the foil. I believe it's a standard 4 bolt pattern of 165x90mm? but I don't remember. So depending on the current/next foil you get, you may not be able to fit it...

Re: Foiling and hitting marine life :(

Anyone invent or come up with any way to make our foils whistle, like those ineffective deer whistles, or anything to give mammals a fighting chance with our sport? Not grooving at all on hitting other sentient beings :( :lol: you wouldn't believe how loud my GoFoil's are. I'm trying to invent some...

Re: An inflatable kitefoil board that actually works?

F-One also has the inflatable surf foilboard now. https://www.f-one.world/product/rocket-air-surf/ I have the F-One inflatable Wind-SUP-foil board. It's very flexy but when windsurfing the flex of the board actually makes pumping the foil SO MUCH easier because it helps you pump the foil with each f...

Re: Peak 4 fifth line bridal removal

Btw winduser, where did you get this line plane? Thanks! Flysurfer line plans are available here https://flysurfer.com/downloads/download-category/lineplans/?dlpage=3 I wouldn't remove that line. In comparison my Peak3 12m doesn't have as good a shape as my Peak4 11m; or that line. The extra shape/...

Re: New generation big wings

As a beginner, I'm not 100% sure you should go straight to the biggest wing you want... Although the easy lift, stability, and low speed cruising might be advantageous. Perhaps you can run that experiment for us :lol: I learned on the LF fun foil, upgraded to the Slingshot/Moses Ghost Whisper, then...
