Re: Liquid Force Impulse review

I forgot to mention that if you're foiling and come tot he surface, since there is a bunch of surface area, you'll be able to ride out of it and keep foiling. Great for the white water when heading out. Also when you wipe out, the shape of the front wing keeps it from shooting out of the water so no...

Liquid Force Impulse review

Just wanted to get this review out for those interested in if this wing set up if for them. First off it isn't a fast foil. You want to go fast, then get a Thruster, moses, or slingshot. If you're riding in waves, chop, light winds and or want to practice some foot work on the board in flat water, t...

Re: Kite collapsing on itself during down loop !

if the front lines are stretched then the kite will tend to fold during loops, also happens if the front bridal has some stretch. See this often when people just throw the same trick over and over again.

Re: Fort Lauderdale

Depends on your level of riding. Tiki Beach near Las Olas is for advanced riders since you need to stay out of the swim zone. 16th st Pompano (not Fort Lauderdale but close) is more open but if you're a beginner and kooking out the locals will not be happy with you. But you can get lessons there fro...

Re: Liquid Force Solo 15.5 for foiling?

For foiling I use a 17.5 Solo when there's almost no wind and I can hold that down pretty well without getting over powered much. Then if I see someone out on a 16 meter kite working it on a twin tip, then I can drop down to a 9 Envy.

Re: Lost foil - broke off while riding

Hey Bob, I would just get rid of that set up. You can keep the board and just get an adapter for a different foil to go into the tuttle box. Putting a leash on that thing seems like an accident waiting to happen. I cut the mask a few inches down with a saw then I retapped the holes. Next had to put ...

Re: Lost foil - broke off while riding

I've fixed a few of these. Horrible design. First of all it's only one M6 bolt from the shim to the center of the board. The mask is connected with two bolts to a plastic shim but it should be the other way around. Next issue is if you look at the top of the mask, they made it flat on the sides that...
