Re: Destroying my Slingshot Ghost Whisperer

Easy to fix? Yes.... fun? No. For a hair line scratch 2 inches long expect 45 min. of sanding with various grits if you expect a flawless finish... If you are a racer yes....if just a cruiser then nowhere near that for acceptable results. I fix it it 10 minutes. A ding or gouge takes me 10+10 minut...

Re: Destroying my Slingshot Ghost Whisperer

If you ride carbon, Unless you ride in perfect depth and sand then you need two wings. One you have off and repair and the other you ride. Good news is that they are easy to fix. Check my post on repair. Its "wing night" at my place tonight in fact! Totally right. Especially when learning to foil. ...

If you are a beginner, take off those straps and get some hooks.

Re: DIY split wave twinny

Plummet,

Interesting thought. 93cm just enough to get the mast on, and hooks.
Nose would be about 400mm long.

Needs a lot more thought and design it to fit a particular bag or suitcase..

Re: DIY split wave twinny

Yeah two plates would be fine. They wouldn't need to be thick at all since they would be on both sides of the board. Like 300gsm carbon skins might even be enough. I did some measuring and marking on my foil board last night. The bottom part that goes under the plate could be 200mm wide and 700mm l...

Re: DIY split wave twinny

Nice work. I've been thinking about making a split hydrofoiling board. I was thinking a plate on top and bottom. The one on the bottom would extend under the hydrofoil mast plate and forward and the one on top would be flush with the deck pads, but only in the middle like your plate. My board will b...

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Thanks Peter. Much appreciated! I'm just getting the gybe thing. Some click and I carve around, others I am ventilating due to poor altitude control, I roll off or mis time the kite. I'm using a sort of counter rotation to initiate the turn. A short upwind tweek, a slight roll/lean up wind, followed...
