Re: Moving from heavier to lighter foil

Dylan, in response to your original post: The Slingshot Hoverglide is an entry level product. (I actually have never tried it because it is so heavy that I'm not sure I could lift and carry it to the water :lol: :lol:) As with other entry level products, you really haven't experienced the fun of hyd...

Re: Bigger boost: Mono or Boxer?

Re: Hydrofoil Pro Tour La Ventana

Final day: For the first time all week, the races were able to start on time with all riders at the start. The first 3 races were held back to back, averaging about 13 mins in duration. Athletes rode out in the exciting conditions they had been waiting for, riding mostly 11m kites. With a change in ...
