Re: twin tip hydrofoil

From then on I tried to just ride the board on the water which was not that easy. A few times when I le...

Re: Virginal foil build

Hey Plummet. I am building one as well. got as far as a twin tip prototype which I have had in the water once till my diy foot hooks broke. the fun is designing your own and the satisfaction of it working.

Re: twin tip hydrofoil

Hi PF. Off topic. I was thinking the same. I will get in serious trouble because this is my daughter's board.

I have a Naish Venturi 2010. it is 58 wide and has a lot more volume than the North LTD. Would this board be ok with a foil????

Re: twin tip hydrofoil

Tried the twin tip foil in the weekend. very gusty light wind in shallow water made it virtually impossible to get a ride. I made some foot hooks but one snapped the first time I hit the ground. Gave up because wind was not consistent. Will try first time to ride board on water without lifting with ...
