How much does your HF and board Combo weigh?

Postby plummet » Thu Dec 01, 2016 7:46 pm

Mine is coming it at 7.9 kg including foot straps and leaving all the fins on for mutant mode. Board and foil are bamboo/carbon. So not the lightest materials of construction.

What brand do you have and how much does the total set up weigh?
I wonder what the lightest set up is? Also the heaviest?

Ketos Pocket 118 (x 46), high modulus 100cm mast, thick deckpad: 4,9 kg.

Without the deckpad it would be somewhat lighter - but I hate wax, no good for anything except for a nice smell :naughty:

In general the heavy alu hydrofoils are great though - the extra weight does not mean anything for normal riding IMO :thumb:

But a welcome luxury indeed for agility/fast moves on the water, besides when carrying :rollgrin:

120 pocket board , Man-O-War foil by jellyfishboards. 5.4kgs No fillers 100% carbon

Houre's new foil is suppose to be 2.5kgs complete board and foil... I would love to shave 6 lbs off my set up but then I would worry about it breaking easy.

Plummet that is what you get when you make hollow everything.
I am doing a board right now for myself ( would want it to break on a customer) just to try. a hollow board for the foil

Yeah I know. But even hollow that's silly light. I build is definitely not a build for light weight. I built it for strength and endurance
