Re: Channels on a surfboards

I was planning on building a set of boards with identical outline, rocker and thickness one without the channels in the tail, and one with bonzer type och channels, and one with only single concave to V. Then test them out. But I've lost interest, because they work fantastic as they are and am build...

Re: Eye protection -> tips on cheap and good-ish sunglasses for kiting

I've stopped wearing glasses on the hydrofoil because it doesn't splash and I have time close my eyes in crashes. So my contacts don't get washed out.

Re: Enata Foil reviews?

Texas, You are probably right. Race wings are designed for the racers who are supposed to win races on them. So a company has a some racers, they could be 150lb or 190 lb. Who knows. Then they test out foils till they go fast for them. Good for racing. They probably have lightwind and high wind wing...

Re: Channels on a surfboards

Hej Plummet, Everything is anecdotal. no one has any science. I've noticed the boards I've made with Evo like bottoms cut through chop smoother, less slamming. They seem to float over the water when flattened out going fast on a reach and transitioning into a turn. I've found them to be really quick...

Re: Strapless board shape?

1. If you have real and big waves and want to ride them, pointy , curvey board . That said, there are some stubbies that are designed to work in those conditions 2.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

It's such a shame. A company copies or side sells another's companies design and is stealing their intellectual property. Yes, you could claim the company need to protect it with patents, but it's still unethical. It's bad for the originator and the company producing. It's a loose -loose equation. S...
