Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Have only had the 6m out on water once so far and from what I can tell.... there wont be much wave riding. 10-13 knots is generally pretty flat to teeny tiny little one foot wind swell. Have had a full season on the 5m and plenty of those sessions were near flat too. Am pretty sure I'm not going to ...

Re: My longest wave on a foil! rec. with a GoPro max lens

Nice, How far up the lines is your mount? Which line mount did you use?

Thanks.

Re: M8 baseplate with M6 bolts

Am running a Lift foil designed for M8 on a board with M6 inserts. I tapped over the board interface side of the holes in the plate. Poured epoxy (5 min syringe type) into the holes in the base plate, sanded flush then drilled out the appropriate hole for M6 hardware. I use a thin washer between bol...

Re: slingshot oh shit handles

628A8F47-3D7A-4EB4-AC4A-2DA5EAF08F9C.jpeg Stripped of the heavy swivel, the Oh shit handles and assorted metal hardware and now works with equal length flying lines. The original leader that had the sharp edge grommet on it is now larks headed to a knot (under the floats) in the replacement home gr...

Re: slingshot oh shit handles

I ditched that little grommet/ring too. It was challenging to get the line unseated from it, but where there is a will, there is a way.

Re: slingshot oh shit handles

Have done a couple SS bars and it can be challenging to get that funny sharp edged grommet out of the lunar end leader but have managed to do it without damaging the leader. Either get something (not sharp) under the line and lever it off or like I said, bend the grommet with pliers in some way to g...

Re: slingshot oh shit handles

Undo leader loop from SS ring with oh shit loop on it. Remove the funny metal elongated loop from leader coming from bar floats. I bent em to get the line off. Reattach leaders loop to loop.

Re: Wing profile info for backyard hydrofoil builders

Can confirm your chop lift and drop findings. Traversing chop at a more oblique angle helps. If travelling straight down swell there is a particulate speed that you feel it most. Slower and it’s manageable, faster and you barely feel the it. Just right and you trip all day long. Eventually you learn...
