Re: Bloody onshore dumping wave combo.

Been there done that... BUT unlike you we have a HUGE clean sandy beach and it is RARE to be exactly onshore. Oh and as MED sea NO tide to cope with... The pleasure of getting out though is well worth it IMHO, though sometimes in lighter wind mother nature has beat me and NO session... Sounds like y...

Re: Tips for blunting up mast and foil?

...I have NEVER seen an alu STRUT that needed to be more round, on the contrary most could use sharper L E... LF Rocket/Happy strut LE is as sharp as trailing edge Both effects are minuscule. Only POS LF alu STRUT I ever saw and unfortunately rode was a very blunt, thick, heavy discontinued "funny"...

Re: Tips for blunting up mast and foil?

sand paper by hand slowly and PERFECT as possible. Fold around edges and "feel" the sanding! ANY machine is just way to much! I have NEVER seen an alu STRUT that needed to be more round, on the contrary most could use sharper L E. Also would seem that if alu STRUT is treated some how that ANY sandin...

Re: Inobo transparent board

This concept could be super fun to use while foil flying as one could look down and see the F wing in action. It is normally centered between your stance so could work? :idea: I had a piece of boat wind shield that was going to be made into a KBHF board but it broke as was way to brittle. Anyone hav...

Re: Mast/strut ventilations: what to do

Yes strut suck sucks! I just used one that would ventilate on almost every run, really was no fun! I feel there might be many things involved and even combinations? Strut twist Strut flex profile L E roundness, sharpness surface texture Quality of profile shape Water chop VS flat, waves, Temp? NOT t...

Re: Small vs large foil board

Seems logic this concept?
Less wind,
bigger kite
longer lines
bigger F wing
bigger board
More skill!

Re: foot hook warrenty

Much to my surprise as I am not a particularly good diy'er I managed to make some more foothooks. Bought a cheap heat gun off amazon and some 6mm Perspex off eBay, just cut the Perspex to size, you can measure the length of the original using a bit of string to take in the curves, then heat up and ...

Re: Small vs large foil board

big wings, that make board size almost irrelevant........and kite size. it flys with any kite in any wind Been flying a 900 cm2 F wing for 2 years now, of course bigger allows less wind! Do like the idea of greater A R! An apple is an apple a banana is a banana see new CNN advert for explanation......

Re: Small vs large foil board

RH, why would you worry about directional stability when the board is on the surface ??? 8) PF There are times when a quick water start in lower winds strapless seems easier with feet on board, board on rail almost 90° to wind and board slides yaw on surface, board being flat therefore looser feels...

Re: Small vs large foil board

There is no yawing comparing with a classic foilboard. nobody is going to believe again) 14m in 3kts. While as I posted I like your "speed boat" hull design not sure I would like a foil board that is not "loose" in yaw on the water? We as many are finding that as well as a looser yaw with boards AN...
