Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Are you saying I could .... I'm not saying anything, it's just a synthesis of what is available. If you have a correct feedback about the Foilmount plate and think that the Best board has a reasonably strong bottom skin, why not. As you have 2 unknowns in your pb, I would suggest to wait until at l...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I would like them to add a KF-BOX, anyone know how to get someone to add one to the board?
Not sure that the board thickness (1/2 inch ?) and material (TT technology ?) allows it .... just my 2 cents....

Re: E foil and kite

As DiY-electric-Hydrofoil has shown us, the problem is battery compacity or energy to volume ratio ... Then the torpedo quick-fix is still to be developped if you want to go back home safe. Then, taking off from the water with a short and low volume board will not be necessarily easy .... However, I...

Re: Wear and tear on Zeeko Foil/Board/NSI foothooks

I could see the potential where it is "Z" shaped at the two handles, and along the front edge: Or plunge any surface in hot water. Craft them convex over your foot for more rigidity. Combine thicknesses. That's a lot of foot hooks for 100 EUR :o :jump: I'm pretty sure a paste made out of melted PET...

Re: Comparative measurements of mast flex and torsional stiffnes

An update, now that the importance of stiffness has become more obvious with the arrival of the chineese foils. The protocol is far from perfection. It will evolve very soon because it doesn't currently take into account the influence of the mast length: a 95cm mast will seem less stiff than the sam...
