Re: What is the international signal for "Abort launch"?

Thumbs down.
Drop bar.
Punch out of CL (or shackle etc).

Paint

I am interested in getting a carbon foil. I like my Al one but it’s heavy and the wing options are limited. I ride often in dark or murky water, and live in the south, where the sun is hot. I want my foil visible, and cool. If I buy one that only comes in black, what are good painting options? I don...

Re: Moses 2018

Never have to worry about it w/ stainless into stainless. Oh yeah, you do. 1/4 turn can friction weld (gall) stainless fasteners together. Have to be sawn apart and replaced. USE GREASE! And don’t over tighten! Stainless in brass or bronze though, does not gall, and the softer metal yields if overs...

Re: Marks on board - please tell me what is the cause of this

Impact. It’s “funny” how things you don’t expect can ding or even puncture a board. I body dragged a few hundred feet in 8 knots and 6” chop on my fst FireWire surfboard wearing an engine harness with carbon slider bar, pretty low profile, but the sharp-ish edges of the carbon bar dug holes in the d...

Re: Pigmenting epoxy

Depending on the pigment you may or may not be able to get opaque color without adding so much pigment strength is affected, especially with thin layers. I think I’ve seen some epoxy pigments that say they are ok for strength at up to 2% volume, if that helps...

Re: Moses 2018

Not even close. The wings have different profiles... ... I have riden both foils and they are as different as night an day. -- Gunnar Sorry, was speaking of bigger ketos wave wing 1200 cm, not the 790cm^2 one you depict. The anhedral arc with flatter tips is the main obvious similarity. I have no s...

Re: Slingshot H4 Wing

Glad you liked. Used one once, nice and stable while going slow, and it is kinda slow in general. It didn’t completely click for me as it was on a short mast and I’m not used to that. My friend who owns it digs it though, I would like to try with the 30” mast myself.

Re: Moses 2018

The 633 resembles Ketos wave wings in many parameters. There is a little griping about this if you dig through the French foil forum. Have not heard of any formal accusations of stealing though, whoever the designer might be. Design elements of wing shapes, like boat hull shapes or surfboard shapes,...
