Re: Need winging advise

your foil wing is too small bud that wing is perfectly fine unless you really want to push the light wind ability. Foiling isn't the issue for the OP, it's balancing and getting into position. For that, you need to eat shit, rinse and repeat... But still, use the leading edge on the water to stabil...

Re: Kite foiling is dying sooo fast

It REALLY depends on your local conditions. If your spot is a good kiting spot, lots of room, steady winds, and if you can already kite proficiently, then, there is barely any incentive to ride a wing foil, apart from the novelty factor, or for a different approach to riding waves. As a side note, t...

Re: Waterstart from the off?

The uphaul method supposes that the board has enough volume for stability for you to stand up on it. I think kneeling lets you get away with a smaller board, as it's the wing that provides lots of stability when standing up. I don't think I can stand on my board, and use it like a SUP, unless it's p...

Re: When do you hydrofoil?

When do you hydrofoil? When the conditions call for it, duh! Typically that would be sub 18kts when I can't really have fun on a surfboard in waves. Although if there are no decent waves, I can happily foil in strong wind, which is fun in its own right. I'm still open to flat water TT sometimes, or...

Re: Game Changers ?

Wingsurfing won't be a kitesurfing-has-been-cancelled kind of game changer, but for sure it'll take some people away from kiting. Mostly people who kite in sketchy places, sketchy launches, sketchy winds, kiting restrictions in place, crowded spots... The ones blessed with good kiting conditions are...

Re: Spitfire with standard stab and XL wing

Interesting, first time I hear about that! Which one is the Stab on the Spitfire (where goes the bigger wing, front or back)? Just not sure the "stab" name applies to a canard design. but if it does, the stab would always be the wing that is not the main wing. And the main wing being the biggest of...

Re: Diy wetsuit dryer

Im thinking about designing a wetsuit dryer that is cheaper but works as good as a commercial one. My plan is to use standard size pc fan, you can get these 12v for the car or usb for at home in pretty high flow without much noise. The main body will be 3d printed, and made available for free of co...

Re: wingfoiling...?

I think kite and windfoiling are very much power oriented. The more power you have the better it works. Not enough power then it doesn't work it all. Windfoiling is possibly much more linked to sail power because the rig is locked into place. There's not a lot you can do if you're underpowered. Win...

Re: wing foils shapes

my simulation was done like this side wind and just to see how the slope of the dihedrals would influence the lateral wind pressure. atached file xxx with position wind and wing angle 60 degrees. Ok, so your first pic confirms really what we initially thought (or feared), that the wind is hitting t...
