Re: Bent aluminum fuselage... Fix?

Whilst I have not seen many LF foils they have all been bent exactly as yours.
For most Al alloys once bent forever weak.
Buy a new one. As for mast, I'm sure I read somewhere about factory seconds going cheap.
And don't forget the Tef Gel.

Re: Zeeko Slash or Pocket

Yes to the Slash if you also want to go wave riding.
Yes to pocket board if you are only going to use the board with the foil. And want more strap placement options.
Also the Zeeko foil you ordered may have a bearing on your choice. For instance the race wing pretty much says 'pocket board'.

Re: New inflatable Kite, 100% hydrofoil dedicated: Notus Air

that was a short countdown clock. Now we just have to get some on the water. With the 8m extension lines in Australia they are about $140aud but do they replace the 4m extensions or add to them? Does then the without 8m extension lines wind range mean just using the 20m lines? If so then is it possi...

Re: Entry level cost effective foil

Related question....how particular does a beginner need to be about which board to use with a production foil. So, assume it's a Zeeko mast, wings, fuselage...can you attach the unit to most anything? Again, talking about a beginner. Can you put it on an old twin tip, take off the footstraps, and m...
