Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

It is bad to bluntly copy somebody work or to steal something. It's fine to say that it's "bad" to copy someone's work. But it's all too common to accuse people of stealing others' designs. If it's not patented, and there's no contract or NDA in place, it's not stealing. I'm not suggesting it's not...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

That being said, there's a continuum between copying and developing something that's 100% novel. Almost no one ever creates something that's 100% novel. So the question is - how much do you have to change something for it not to be "bad"? but they certainly put foil on the board for surfing and SUP...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Made in China does not automatically make it bad. Actually Chinese products are great. For the most part all the stuff you buy nowadays if made in China or Asia. It is up to the Brand or designer to decide how the Foils are made and with which materials. So when you buy a knockoff, you are usually g...

Re: New foil from Ozone

Hi Martin, There is quite a difference in low end between an 11m Enduro and a 12m Hyperlink. The Hyperlink has more projected area so it is closer to the lowend of the 14m EnduroV2. Add to that the small packing size and weight and it will work out a lot better for traveling with than a 15m Tube kit...

Is anyone riding the Hyperlink for non foil purpose?

I'm really tied between the OR Flite 14.5 and Hyperlink in 12.
Yes. I use it mainly for boosting actually :-) What would you like to know?

I truly hope this is just open source design and not a chinese manufacturer ripping a patent off by doing side-deals, at least that will help me sleep at night after a day of awesome surf foiling.
It is them ripping off Takuma. But according to Takuma, this has been stopped now.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Mmm i can’t SUP to save myself but Gunnar (gmb) can. Maybe drop him a line. I’m pretty sure a leash is not a great idea when learning to sup foil. Can you get behind a boat and learn to foil on flat water before riding a wave ? If you are learning behind a boat, you don't need a leash. But as soon ...
