I have no idea if this is available everywhere but easy to find in Europe. I am mister bladder valve and patch r...

Re: Foil angles....help

Hello, We always set front wing at 0 degree A O A and rear starting 0 then adding negitive pitch until it feels right usually between 0 and 3. This is if your strut to fuse is 90 and strut to board is 90. If not, or to double check, the measure between the board and both t e and l e should be equal,...

t bar inserts added to factory board

Hello, This is an idea from "FAV" found on the french forum. We have used it with great success, we do not foil big waves like Christoff in SA, but this technique seems strong. This is for a factory or home made board meaning it is finished. You drill 10mm hole thru board, or better yet if you are a...

Re: Carafino: Race Board 2014

Bradn, I agree with your thoughts, and it seems that the drag coefficient of what is happening below the h2o is far more important than what is happening on or above the surface, although this is also a factor to be considered, just much less. I would also think that from a structural point of view,...

Re: Carafino: Race Board 2014

Great Keoni! Finally someone has seen and even tested the new boards from Carafino. I am hoping that because the test board was made in Bali and sent to you that you can TAKE GOOD pictures and post them so we can all see! Please a top (birds eye view) photo so we can see insert and strap placement. ...

Re: Do the wings even need to be aerofoil shaped?

Hello, Only speaking of my first hand experience having built 4 different complete foils and several front and rear wings, I offer thoughts for consideration. I and a good friend learned on a wood core strut, alu fuse and 4mm aircraft grade alu wings in 2009. It was loosely based on the AIR CHAIR de...

Re: Question to the World of Hydrofoiling???

Tone, I like you am watching carefully what Christopher Manny Carabello (Mango Carafino) is up to. But you loose credibility when you reply without reading carefully! He wrote " I am working on leading the way", NOT " I am leading the way"! I personally am excited to see what he comes up with? We al...

Re: Is it true? Airush, Axis & F-One working on foils?

Hello, I have heard rumors of F-one working on a foil for at least 2 years now, but still nothing? I see it this way. Many times in wind below 10 knts or so the only guys on the h20 are foilers, so all the guys on the beach with normal gear can`t ride and of course want to, especially if they are on...

Re: GP Foil: same foil for kitefoil - windfoil and wakefoil

If they work, looks good!
If I were a wind surfer also and wanted to do both and this would work, why not?
I see it powered up and flying under the wind surf board, much more than I have seen the other monkeys new foil. just saying....

Re: Fast Look Inside Carafino Factory Lamination Room

sorry... but... Where is the ventilation and, or chemical masks for those laminating with epoxy? Huge surface areas being done, tons of toxic fumes! One would be very careful posting such a video in the USA as OSHA surly would have something to say. I wonder what the Indonesian Authorities would say...
