Re: Plywood surf foil wing

I love it!
I'm 3D printing my one but I like that you are showing it doesn't take high tech to get a great result!

Re: The Naish Wing

Had my first go with the Naish yesterday. Background: I'm 54, competent ex windsurfer, competent kiteboarder. Super gusty and I was on an old intermediate windsurf board that barely floats me. Have to say, I do NOT have the skills to waterstart from that sized board yet! Took me about 40 tries to ge...

Re: CAD Software

I use Openscad CAD programming language to mathematically describe the shapes I 3D print.
I looked into and downloaded simFlow last year when I was curious about the same thing but I haven't tried it yet.

Re: 3d Print Files

Mine so far: My Wingsurfing foil. I put this up last night: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4513759 Print half sized for the rear wing, full sized for the front wing. Your printer needs to print at least 250mm high to do the centre sections. My look-alike design version of Ocean Rodeo's Mako. Alth...

Re: Surfr + burner phone = Poor Man's Woo

Actually the motion is quite same, and device needs to align itself the rotating coordinates how fishing pole rotates like board above head. Accelerations you can mimic by lifting first faster. I'm not a mathematician, but I'm pretty sure that the motion is not the same. Agree. The Woo is reputed t...

Re: The Naish Wing

Got my Naish S25 today. The locals are very biased towards Duotone but after looking at lots of reviews to hopefully sort the hype from the truth I felt like the S25 is a better fit for me. Comes with a quality pump and a leash which is a great start and looks to be rigid enough at 8PSI to support m...

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

It's live already! https://kiteforum.com/viewforum.php?f=201 I know, I'm on it too, thanks Toby! :D But I suspect wingies will at some stage get their own forum untainted by kiteboarders claimi...

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

We will see wingsurfing get it's own dedicated forum, likely not here. I'm an ex windsurfer, current kite boarder but I can see the big attractions of wingsurfing. Not the big air adrenaline rush, but the depowered wave ride freedom and not having a mast. As the young guy above shows, using the lift...

Re: New kind of wing design to handle turbulence

As per the area I shaded in yellow, I don't think the turbulence shown correlates with the behaviour of water.
Also, the very thin wing section is doable in the drones by carrying the batteries in thin form as part of the wings, in foils supporting weight of gear and person the thin wing would buckle.

Re: My New Year board build!

Nice board!
Just one note, with the fins so close to the end of the board it may suck air into the back of the fins a bit too easily?
