Re: Hydrofoil in Cape Town

There are loads of good days for foiling in Cape Town. a lot of days it goes onshore around mid day for a few hours before the se kicks in. strength can be from 10 - 18 knts but can be big swell so you need to be competent dragging out off the beach through waves. been out 4 times in the onshore thi...

Re: Recommended small board for traveling

Ketos Pocket board is perfect. strong and light and has inserts for 3 straps on the 118, not sure on the 107 i think no inserts but they could probably add them. Uses KF box which is Ketos, F One and Takoon masts also Alpine Foil with adaptor. http://www.ketos-foil.com/en/47-ketos-foil-board http://...

Re: Which inflatable do you find best for Hydro foiloing

Mono is perfect for foiling. Unless you want super light wind go with 9m.
Good from 8 knts and has much higher top end than 12.
12 will only get you going 1 knt sooner as long as you have good foil technique.
My Mono quiver will be for sale soon if you are looking at 2nd hand.
Cheers

Re: Best practices for using board leash in the surf with a kite

Check out this article I did a while back.
Since then I now use the Surf More tangle free leash with power clip. This gives you the added bonus of an extra pull for releasing in an emergency

Re: Ozone Enduro vs North Dice

I would say the enduro is more similar to the Evo.
Although the Evo prob has more hang time. Both work well unhooked and in the waves but neither as good as dice for wake style although both better in waves in my opinion

Re: Hydrofoil quiver?

Nice one Peter, glad someone else has found how good the Ketos wings are. The Big wing is so easy for learning, my students are all up and riding within 3 hours. I just have a lot more fun on the other wings myself :D

Re: Hydrofoil quiver?

I have all the Ketos wings. If you want max upwind and downwind then I use the race wing. To get the most out of this you want a race kite it just feels weird with a low aspect kite. On the other hand with the wave wing a race kite feels weird so I use my Neos. The wave wing is amazing for carving t...
