How to Sand A Hydrofoil to Reduce Hum!?

Postby Toby » Sun Jun 14, 2020 8:52 pm

In this episode of #teamtalk I go through a more general tip to help you reduce any Humming noise that your foil might make. Every foil is different regardless of brand, and some can start humming for no apparent reason. Greece or dirt of the wing can cause a humming noise when used at speed! These are some general tips to help you reduce that noise. You shouldn't have to sand much, its just to rub the trailing edge surfaces clean and change the friction profile for the hydrodynamics...
