Re: Surf/wave wing thickness and NACA profiles

Just finished and ridden my latest wing. Initial was 1.2” thick, (30 mm) about 1100 sqcm. This one is .66” thick but 1200 sqcm. The thick wing has a roughness about it, I think caused by buffeting of the rear stab by the thick wing. The new wing is smooth and silent, gained about 4 knots in top spe...

Re: Foil polesurfing

If your a kite foiler, your going to find the wind foiling gear big and bulky. It’s not hard to get up on a windfoil but it’s lot of gear to cart around. I doubt you would get going any earlier than a kitefoil.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Can’t demo a Peak 4 as not available for demo but tried a 6 mtr Pansh Genesis 2. It turns so slow, I’m guessing from the videos I have seen the Peak is a lot quicker. I also had a lot of trouble on toeside, the kite just dragged me down wind but on heal side it was fine. Can anyone comment on the t...

Re: need new foil want speed in light wind

Depends on board size, a higher volume board will be able to attain enough speed to get even the smallest race wing flying. Pocket boards need the big wing as they don’t have the ability to travel on the surface at speed. In the light stuff, 6-10 knots I use a 12 Soul and a Levitaz Bionic. Yes, I c...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Has anyone compared the Cloud and Peak 4?
Wind range 16+ knots, 80 kg on an 1100 wing chasing wind swell. Love the 6.2 Cloud but they are hard to get outside the US, need something smaller, either the 3 or 4 mtr Peak4 maybe.

Re: Where to shim?

This helped me get my head around it. I only shim the rear stab if front foot pressure changes with speed.
