QR Lever for a foil plate?

Anyone using a QR lever for a foil? I found this setup from NSI but it's not compatible with any of my foils and it's a bit pricey http://www.northshoreinc.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=453&idcategory=0 nsi_qr_foil.jpg I was mostly thinking of trying some bicycle type QR levers. Seems there are...

Re: Kai Lenny's new foil

Is there a backstory to the pics? Is he being towed into the backflip, is there a wave? Or did he pump into the backflip? The latter would be INSANE! LOL

Re: below the bar trim

Change The trim. ..below the bar was a past mistake...nobody will do it again...its useless and dangerous Why do you say that? I think they are far superior to above the bar trims. Main reason is you get twice the "depower". I've kited with them for years and have had no problems. :thumb: Love belo...

Reviews? We have the Flysurfer Peak 3 in our kite school for power/depower land kiting and shallow water bodydragging. The 12m is a low wind record breaker! (with foil, crash it means swimming!)

Re: kiteboarding Leash Condom

Not my pic but I just saw this while searching for some other things. I wouldn't have much use for this cover. The ones on leashes are more convenient, sewing these onto the actual leash would be a better idea.

Re: Liftfoils materials and durability

All those jagged edges on the chips says its carbon. I don't think plastic would chip like that, at least not with such straight edges. Those little pinholes you see are also part of the layup process. It could be painted with a soft paint that makes it seem like plastic.

Re: Liftfoils materials and durability

Are you sure you're not just seeing the top weave? I very much doubt it's "ABS plastic". There are different carbon weaves and not all carbon has the checkerboard pattern. Below are examples. Some are glossy, some are matte. It's all carbon fiber but the top layer is a different weave for a specific...

Re: Slingshot Angry swallow versus Cabrinha Secret weapon

I'm around 80kg and my preference is for 5'4 to 5'6 boards when the wind and waves pick up. But that's for the smaller waves I ride in. I have no idea what Cape Town is like. But I would guess that 5'2 for overhead would be way too skatey. I have a 4'11 LF Little Phatty and it's definitely not my fa...

Re: Slingshot Angry swallow versus Cabrinha Secret weapon

I have the Slingshot Converter 5'4 which is basically the Swallow with a foil mount and I've ridden my friends 2015 Secret Weapon. These are completely different boards. The Secret Weapon is a BIG board. It's much thicker and is designed primarily for lighter winds and small waves. The Converter (Sw...
