Re: First foilboard

Cleaned it up and sealing the wood prior to putting on a last layer of glass on deck and around the rails. Weighs 3900g now. I think it's pretty indestructible now.

Re: Please help and sign petition to save Cold Hawaii

There is wind power at one of our spots. The masts are actually just a few meters from the water, but not right at the launch. But we kite right in front of them. No problems. Edit: I saw on the map. It's 2 towers. Not nice for the locals. Don't understand how it effects kiting, but I'm sure the loc...

Re: New North Foil's 'PA Carbon Mix 50'

Thing is, injection molded plastic doesn't lend itself to thick sections, long fibers in reinforcement or such large plan forms ( outline) .

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Despite my earlier post about the doubtful ethics of buying a Chinese copy of someone else's design, I sent an email enquiry to one of them. No reply.

Re: North Mono for Waveriding - Your Experience?

I'm doing OK on the monos on the HF and surf they are good for me.
But WTF do I know.
Peter, if you were going to get a new quiver of LEI kites for foiling 80%, shitty wave wave kiting 20%, which model and sizes would you get? 8 to 22 knots on HF, 18-28 knots on surfboard.

Re: Opinion on lessons

I spent 3 sessions, was getting up and surface riding without control, drifting downwind mostly. Took a break for winter because it was late September by then. Went to Mexico and booked 4 hrs of private instruction with radio. After that I was flying back N forth, upwind, downwind, not a lot of cont...
