Re: Eye Protection Goggles that can be used with helmet

this never fogs up on me, its polarised, with changeable lenses, relatively cheap, fits the helmet and very comfortable.

Re: How to Sit on a foil

this is the oposit of how I do it. back hand in the middle of the bar, front hand to controll the front of the board and to shift weight (but) into balance position. the transition need to be faster, to be able to do it in conditions less ideal then on the video. Windmaker is right, its easy, should...

Re: Brazil Nov/Dec: spots for foiling and riding twintip

I'm in Taiba. I foil every day, regardless of the conditions... In the Ocean, you need to be confident to get through the shore break, once at open water it's fine. We also have a wave spot with flat water behind the reef at low tide and no waves to get you out to open water. (you need to pay attent...

Re: A case for full face?

I'm also safety conscious. However, I'm not sure if we can cover all bases with the full helmet. My son is a competent foiler, and still, during a flying tack, he crashed and fell on the blade, cut his neck. Fortunately, it was not to deep... So, now we looking at a few choices, ride "naked" or dres...

Re: The stagnant foiler.

I will think about a bigger wing. But i like to go fastish. So reducing the speed for a big slow wing just so i can practice transitions might not be fun for me. I was thinking the same, before I got the 1000cm2 front wing (Fone) and have to say I was pleasantly suprised to go 45 kmh on it (measure...
