Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Just started riding the Spitfire with the SS Alien Air. If anyone is riding this combination let me know where you have the plate track # and front foot strap position. I currently am riding it with the track at 4.5 and the front strap all the way back. I find the board still wants to porpoise . Th...

Re: Canard Foil

Hi, Borist give you an excellen tip. When I test for the first time a new product (ex front wing, fuselage or other) I first ride the product strapless, to see if my natural stance is same as usual and if not, what is the difference.

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Hi, About the availability of the XLW wings, we are waiting the details from our supplier. About the difference between the White and green foil and the spitfire. In fact only one piece is common to both: the mast. The plate is different to make the Mast Angle different for spitfire and white and gr...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

for information we are working on XLW wings to suit the spitfire design. It would be nice if there was special package of XLW wings with a fuselage included. I assume if fuse stays the same, there will be both larger front and back wings needed. To change wing size would be easier with change of th...

Will these XLW wings open the Spitfire up to Windfoil use?

Re: Canard Foil

Hi, for some tips when you design a 'canard' foil, the trimming of the AoA, the design of the wing have a major impact on the behavior. We spent almost one year to find the right balance of all the parameters (Profil, wing span, fabric, level of the wings compare to the other). But the result is a d...
