Re: Ride Engine Size

The harness got smaller fitting in 2018. They moved the point where the straps are sewn to it farther behind. And that tends to make spreader ride up MORE when harness is sized small. Longer straps between sewn point and spreader attachment, creates more swing up and down of spreader bar. So I’m usi...

Re: Ride Engine Size

I prefer mine sized big. I used to wear a smaller size. The ears dug in under my ribs. I went larger on the harness and now it can’t dig in under my rib. Ears wrap nicely around my ribs, nicely padded.

I even switched to a mystic slider on it. Now it’s the ultimate Cush harness.

Re: Tuttle vs Deep tuttle

That’s a deep Tuttle Taut. But, that’s a windsurf deep Tuttle. GoFoil won’t fit without cutting head top at angle. GoFoil is 2.25 deep at “each end”.

Bolt hole alignment is slightly different too.

But you can make it fit no problem.

Re: too light to drift downwind?

The cloud 9 P27 wing has that issue. It floats high and dry, even with heavy aluminum mast on it.

Re: Best place to learn to foil on East Coast

Drive up to Merritt Island. Foil Kelly Park. Chest deep for miles. Many foilers ride there. No weeds. Better than OBX for learning and you can sleep at home. Short drive.

Re: Looking for my first foil board (surf+kite foiling)

You can have all in one board. You have to understand that you can paddle into waves with really small boards. Too many people are buying boards way too big for prone foiling. For example Look here. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bm92svFnPnx/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=7kpewompcnu8 Surfer is 6’3 ...

Re: Water trapped in mast

Try to figure out which of the plastic plugs is leaking. Remove that plug. Drain and try to reinstall the plug.

If you fail, spray foam the cavity. When using spray foam you’ll need to remove the plug from both ends, so the foam can fill and expand both directions.
