Re: Specific grease for Hydrofoil

These are the only products i use on my foil hardware. Never seize and way better than lanolin tefgel. Extreme conditions that have been used in marine environments for decades. Goes on clean and stays clean. www.sfrcorp.com https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GK7GHYO https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0041OXPDA m...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Reports of the China foils seems to show quality is highly variable. Not surprising! I think the best risk avoidance is to only buy from a seller after getting a positive first-hand report from another buyer. However, I suspect the cheap Chinese knock off market has died off for many of the bargain...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

1. Which type of plate was the one from JNJ that broke quite easily? I was not able to follow so easily through the posts! Was it the plate seen in Option 1/2 or in 3? The plate in 1/2 appears to be quite shallow, but possibly more reliable since it is made of fiberglass (can flex a little bit bett...

Re: Need Help with using P-tex

Those look kinda like core shots. I think what Kitejumping is trying to say is you might need a base welder extrusion gun to fix those deeper scratches. The best way to fix is to notch a v into the plastic to get better penetration kinda like welding then get a base welder and fill the spots. base w...

Re: Foilers vs Kiters proportion now

Around here so far i've seen around 40% moved to foil and another 20% has a foil but scared to ride it or wants the right conditions to learn. Me i've given up all other disciplines I keep wanting to go back to surf board but haven't. The TT's are completely out might even throw them away or make a ...

Re: Tips for learning to ride toeside

I agree with all the tips so far. If your not using a slider rope harness get one. Next is a couple of things like others said downwind is where the turns can happen at a moderately slower speed. go down wind kite high and slowly maneuver it to the new direction of toeside if you can go straight dow...

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

Do you snowboard on tarmac or rocks or something like that? My snowboards have been gone on for years and years, while I'm often doing boardslides. Just going downhill and jumps doesn't really wear out my board. Same with my TT, it only wears out when I start in the sand. And it's going at a slow r...

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

Board- This is a tough one TT-100-200$ That seems a bit cheap :o Yeah it probably is but i guess i don't value a TT much. I've always viewed them as tools like a hammer. Now directionals and foils I value more as vehicles thus a higher value. I guess there is more thought in shapping a board rather...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Wow thanks again Down Under! Everything you mentioned makes perfect sense. I do think its vibrating alot I cant feel it but surely its happening. I will certainly put some kind of pad inbetween the wing and fuse. Like you said it would cushion and allow for more space in the hardware to clamp tighte...
