Re: Any tips on building a foilboard...

There are few ways you can go: - Buy used foilboard that fits your foil or is easy to mod to fit. - Modify old surf or wakesurf or skim board - I modded one myself using Slingshot Space Pickle. It is a good size board even for a beginner http://snag.gy/O5CQqN.jpg http://snag.gy/TybFiz.jpg - build yo...

Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

Tell me guys, why would you now pick the hyperlink over the soul? Seems like the soul wins on every factor, even price. Plus there’s that FS warranty. Bear in mind that location has lot to do with the choice. Some places you can get a better deal on one vs the other. Plus Soul just came out and not...

Re: Rider weight versus foil classification (wind range)

Zeeko makes different size versions of the Spitfire. I assume a big part of that is rider weight. Actually no. XLW wings for Spitfire were designed to allow slow take-off and flight speeds, so it can be used to ride slower waves for example. XLW is also useful for lighter winds and easier on beginn...

Re: Moving from heavier to lighter foil

Lightweight foil/board will indeed be great for jumping. For a general snappines I'd get a smaller board first. In my experience, just switching to a small board made a significant change to how playful the setup was. In my book Alien Air is really big board with lots of swing weight. See if you can...

Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional Test ride video.

Its just a super fun Bi-Directional Twin Tip free riding foil :thumb: What is fun about it? Can't see it from the video. How does it ride toeside? Turns? I understand the attraction to TT riders who did not make a decent jibe in their lifetime, but IMO if you want to play you need to be able to tur...

Re: Best Kahoona 3,5 for hydrofoil?

Different riding styles prefer different kites. I have a quiver of Kahoonas of varied vintage stored at my folks house and use them when visiting Europe. 2 years ago, when my foil was Spotz 2 and preferred high AR kites (Sonic FR, Edge or similar....), I hated riding with Kahoonas. Year later I trav...

Re: LA area kiting?

Fronts are passing thru these days (Sat & Thu), but most likely LW foiling will be the choice. Perhaps off Belmont (Long Beach)

Re: Mast length and boosting

Isn't this a case where the Spitfire would work well too? By being able to handle a bit more back foot pressure on the launch, that would make it a bit more natural? Resilience to partial front wing breaches would also be more forgiving with timing screw ups. I've only jumped with that foil, so can...
