Re: Infinity Split X Infinity Foil Split

You don’t need to vacuum bag it, mine was hand layup and has been holding up for ~100 sessions. I weighed it down with some books while curing. But if you have vacuum setup, it would be better. I would not use the actual shinn plate as I think there is curvature to it so it may not fit your board. A...

Re: Infinity Split X Infinity Foil Split

Hi, I have a Nobile Infinity Split (waveboard). I am considering buying the Nobile Infinity FOIL Split (for Foiling AND waves). Another option would be attaching my Alpine Foil to my current Infinit Split (waveboard). I know there are flex issues here. The solution would be to use a plate just like...

Re: How to ruined your vacation with Core

tape should fix that for the vacation. But yeah, if that is a new kite and has only impacted water, it is absolutely a manufacturing problem. Never owned a core kite, but I have bashed kites into water really hard and never ripped one like that. Hell, I have bashed kites onto land and stuck them in ...

Re: How to lift our foils steadily?

When I was learning, the thing that clicked for me was unweighting my back foot instead of weighting my front foot, and vice versa. So if you feel the foil coming up, instead of driving your weight forwards to weight your front foot, focus on lifting your back foot up. I think what is actually happe...

Re: Hydrofoil board for beginner, cheaper VS expensive

I don’t think the board matters all that much. Better to use a board designed for foiling instead of trying to adapt something else (surfboard, etc.). If you are reasonably crafty, you can build your own board pretty easily. For the hydrofoil itself, definitely use something made by an established c...

Re: Finally I had my first date with the Ultra 12 @ 6-10 knots

On my Naish trip there is no excessive wear on the TE. I have been using it for two seasons. Approx 30 sessions on this kite per season. It is either in the air OR in the bag. No lying around on the beach. Same with my clouds. I don't doubt that strutless/one-strut kites will wear out at trailing e...

Re: anyone used a best kahoona for foiling ?

Kahoona isn't great for foiling. Best Cabo is a very nice foiling kite in smaller sizes.

Re: Zeeko upgrade (low budget carbon T bar)

Nice man, congrats! Did you consider buying a carbon tube? This are not expensive and might save quite some time. Not easy to cut the piece for mast tho: http://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=199&t=2394338&start=80 Good luck! D. I saw your build a while back, and had considered it, but didn't know w...

Zeeko upgrade (low budget carbon T bar)

Long post- if you are interested in building a carbon foil and have limited experience, this might be worth reading. Otherwise, maybe skip this one. I've read a bunch of posts from people far more talented than me, and they were extremely helpful, but many were written by people who assumed the read...

Re: Supplements/food to prevent knee/hip arthritis and keep joints lubricated?

My father in law (not a kiter) swears by glucosamine for his knees, so maybe it is worth a try. My guess is that a good physical therapist or sports doctor will be much more beneficial. My guess for knee or hip problems is something about stance. Do you ride a twin-tip? If so, have you tried adjusti...
