If you ride every day like many of us do, it really means a lot, and don't underestimate the mental thing about it :thumb:

In the high season I ride practically everyday and always disassembly my foil in three parts. No hassle on this subject here... it's part of my warming up process :thumb:

for those lazier folks, a cordless screwdriver might be helpful :rollgrin:

Or someone willing to use their car for storage, all the time.

It's exacly my case. I live in an apartment and have a bunch of equipment, most of them is stored in my wife's car :P . My foil is usually stored in 3 parts and I have 2 planes assembled in the car's trunk.

I saw the title but did not watch the video. I finally went back and watched it. Wow, that’s even worse than I expected!

I am the lazy one then :rollgrin:

We are talking wingfoils here eventhough it ended in the Hydrofoil section.

Have mine fully assembled sideways in the car, no waste of time nor hassle assembling or disassembling :thumb:
No alu parts so nothing to get stuck.

My kitefoils though, are also in the car mast and flyer always assembled on the two I have, but the boards disconnected - it is only one screw in a KFBox so easy.

I hate the plate and tracks connection, for me it IS a hassle and I am out before those assembling, and drive home before they have packed.

So happy to avoid having to position and fasten 12 screws, as I only have 2 if out on wingfoil and both kite hydrofoils on a day.

For me it really makes a difference.

Remember, pumping a wing doesn't take long, and setting up or packing a single skin kite even faster.

Meaning assembling is by far the most time consuming part of getting ready :(

So yes I am lazy but loving it :D
