Without the stabiliser, the centre of lift should move aft a little. For windfoiling they generally use a 'mast' position about 8 to 10 cm further aft from the front wing.Horst Sergio wrote: ↑Sat Aug 25, 2018 10:57 amThanks Ronnie,
very nice one from Master Philippe Caneri again.
Unfortunately my windfoiling project stucked due to several reasons. But the goal was clear, first 100 m with stabi than cut it of, to learn it this time the right way from the start.
But the video interpretation could be, that it is not so easy, not even for Phil. While on the other hand especially for the combination of windfoiling and jumping the benefit for easier landings as on the kites could have a good potential.
After Monofoiling? I think therewould be just hoverboards that works like a monofoil on water and on land to improve, but I fear physics wont allow the joy, so better count on monofoiling for now
No, just a follower of Philippe Caneri, spreading his message. [/quote]
My recomendation to start is not before you are safe doing jibes with foot switch. I also had a guy a bit in front of this, succesfully trying and flying monofoil, but he wanted to stay with stabifoil to become better first, which makes more sense also in my eyes. The best point to start is when you are allready good in doing flying tacks, which is for sure a level not everybody will reach. But reason for this is, that to switch from stabi-flying-tack to mono-flying-tack is not that hard, so after some month you can be able to be back on full flying manouvers, while learning mono-flying-jibes with foot switch is much harder than lets say a caneri man.
Easy, for first it is enough to ride to the beach and ask somebody to unscrew your stabi, that's it.
