Re: Foot Straps

Cheers for the tips advice on straps,something for me to consider. :lol: I thought I was a racer :cry1: I take it back. I did land about 10 foiling jibes on the spotz 2. Just the crashes were so bad wh...

Re: Foot Straps

Now on the Spotz 2 I'm struggling to get the board to go round without being really intimidated. Yeah, Spotz 2 is very fast, but very intimidating because it is very pitch sensitive. I was never comfortable riding mine toeside and was never able to foiling jibe it. Switched to a much more pitch sta...

Re: Foot Straps

Greenhat recommended these Chinook straps for racing, and I've really liked them. https://greenhatkiteboarding.com/chinoo ... s?___SID=U

I like the straps to be stiff for getting your feet in and out.

Seems like a lot of others use the NSI straps and Dakine straps for racing.

Re: R1 vs Chrono

You are asking about the original chrono and the r1 V1 right? Not the current models R1 has more power, go faster, go higher upwind and has better water relaunch. Chrono turns faster, launch easier and land easier. I thought the r1v1 had problems with relaunch? I've seen them bowtie pretty easily I'...

13mm is pretty much the standard now on Alu Masts.
Oh, for some reason I thought they were thicker. What is the thickness of a carbon race foil strut?

Re: Bullet by Zeeko - the fastest alloy hydrofoil

I'm curious about the market for people who want a race ready aluminum foil vs either more expensive full carbon new foils or older used carbon race foils that would be cheaper than a new aluminum foil. Granted 35/38 kts is pretty fast! Yeah, that is a strange market to go after. Is it actually for...

It's no secret Enata is owned by Maxime Nocher's family.
Ahh, I didn't know that.

It seems like Maxime hasn't been competing in any of the major events all summer. Is he injured?

Re: Enata?

I saw that Enata is Dubai based. This website for one of their other projects (41' foiling motor yacht) seems to say they are a Swiss engineering company: https://foiler.com/en/home#Enata I have seen a lot of their videos were in Dubai though. I don't want to speak out of turn, but I know a couple ...
