It was and is my idea to choose K B H F as one can see going back thru past posts.
Most notably "available".
Just like the correct word for the vertical element of a T bar is so often misused here
Every word I choose leaves no room for confusion.
"Kite" as to not confuse with S U P, Wake, Boat towed Seated, Sail boat, electric, and other Hydrofoils, We use kites for our power source.
Board, once again even the name of one of the threads here this forum is incorrect, we Kite Board, surf implies waves!
Hydro for no confusion with RAM air kites, again often mistakenly called "foils"!
And Foil is self evident.
I suppose that "kite hydrofoil" could be ok, but again I sure see it as a board sport.
What does North and many companies call what we do including all styles?
And here what do we want to discus building?
(K) ite (B) oard (H) ydro (F) oil
All that said, as it will be a sub thread under Hydrofoil and this is a Kiteforum, (D) o (I) t (Y) ourself would be just fine. D I Y
And just for the record,
I have built, seen, and test flown many D I Y KBHFs since 2009.
I also am so lucky living here to know guys with ever growing knowledge and skill to associate with.
