Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

Checking back in: I have tried a cab plasma and it was great upwind, never tried monster door but looks good. Still prefer directionals usually. After riding my low volume minisimmons/potato copy (5’ x 22”) in light wind with great efficiency -(holding ground in 8 with 17, upwind in 9-10 knots at de...

Uruguay

Where in the punta del este to Paloma area can you foil? How are the lagoons? I have seen one video of landauer foiling in (I think) Laguna garzon and landing jumps with full size mast but I don’t know if the water level is usually this deep in very much of the lagoon. Anyone know the area? Better t...

Re: Foiling without a kite

One way to "pump", is to fly the kite high, standing with feet at the center of the board (thus strapless the only way I think), and just bear off riding the small wind swells - really fun.
:thumb:
I can’t do a lot on foil yet except the occasional jibe, but this is super fun!

Re: Kite loop to waterstart

I think it depends on the gear and the rider. A rider who is advanced in kite skill may find looping to start practical and necessary sometimes. I used to start that way on surfboards a lot, but foiling I have rarely done it. I use a big wing and a paipo with cloud kites, for me it works better at t...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

@ max That would make sense, if they develop a strong Al spitfire fuse to fit the carbon masts they already make at the correct angle, and handle the corrosion risk correctly. Or since nico has said the angle is better made at the board end, supply the fuse with a wedge shim for the mast plate. This...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

They are working on it but it needs a new mast/fuse joint design. The bigger wings put too much toque on the simpler/lighter connections used on their Al foils. The carver wing is 710 cm2, normal wings 535, spitfire xlw 800. The zeeko windfoil wing is 930 cm2 and bigger span; it uses different fuse ...

Re: Moses Quality Control is ... you decide

Everyone has their rights to prefer one over the other, I hope you end up enjoying what you have. I don't dispute that it's not perfect, and all these foils are pricey enough to want the best you can get. P.S. if you are interested in some more high end stickers for your gear I can work you up somet...

Re: Moses Quality Control is ... you decide

They are selling composite parts, probably on a 5% net at the end of the day. They are not selling the carbon girlfriend experience. Moses maybe makes an extra 1% on the SS branding, or maybe just extra volume. Slingshot does essentially give you a bunnyranch special for the same shit for an extra 2...
