Does anyone have any advice for switching your foot stance on the Spitfire?

Re: Back to the roots of hydrofoiling ?

For a time there was only the Carafino and Rush Randle I think. I believe one of the catalysts for Taaroa becoming a thing was a disagreement over their arrangement for selling Carafino's in Europe. He could have been hyrdofoiling's cabrinha or naish but for his personality and practices. I tried h...

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

If I recall properly, in the movie below I was using front XXLW wing. Check after 1’ https://youtu.be/ZxXj2HXW_D0 Slow speed attracted stall many times. Also ride close to surface reduce lift additionally, pushing me to increase AoA. Thanks for the video. Its interesting to see pioneering at work -...

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

Thanks for the feedback. When you tried various wings behind a boat, you preferred the Carver wing. Why are you choosing the Spitfire rear wing for mono? The rear wing of the Spitfire may be quite similar in characteristics to a regular kitefoil front wing. As there are few profiles with COP moving...

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

The Spitfire Windfoil XXLW is with 90cm mast. With a clear no jumping directive from Zeeko. Mine is on its way, and while I expect it to be slower and draggy-er than a normal Windfoil. It will be great to try with a board that will allow also Sup and Surf foiling wit same kit. As mono setup. Has an...

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

You mention that you are using parts from the XXLW Windfoil. I have only seen the Surf and Sup version of the XXLW released and thought the Windfoil was still being developed?
