Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional Test ride video.

Its just a super fun Bi-Directional Twin Tip free riding foil :thumb: What is fun about it? Can't see it from the video. How does it ride toeside? Turns? I understand the attraction to TT riders who did not make a decent jibe in their lifetime, but IMO if you want to play you need to be able to tur...

Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional

Can someone actually cite a strength of a bidirectional foil? Is there actually any justification for this? Is the idea to prevent having to learn how to gybe or tack so that you can be a kook just bringing your kite over the top at 12 oclock every time you want to change direction like someone on ...

Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional

TT is most probably the most inefficient craft on the water because it is a compromise. Planes, cars ,bikes, boats, animals, fish, humans are all directional for a good reason. Anyone claiming a bi-directional foil is better than a directional foil is defying the laws of physics. Want to combine TT ...

Don’t get any foil expecting turning speed to be in any way comparable to an LEI!
Tested an 8m Aeros Navy 2 foil kite the other day, turns almost as fast as my F-One bandit 8m 2018 !!!

Re: Short review of the new F-One IC6 Hydrofoil

Yes definitely biased and not hiding it (van in the background). Have been Foilboarding since 2005 and owned half a dozen foils from different brands. Wish I could try some of the newer foils from other brands to make a good comparison but none around here ...I am sure their are others but still, a ...

Re: Old Bandit3 worth repairing?

As a sailmaker I would charge 30 euros for this repair. Have done many on old Bandits, it is likely to happen on other struts too... No big deal and the repair is invisible. If you do not have access to a proper repair shop you can use adhesive Dacron tape or even duct tape. The advantage of these o...
