Re: Need advice for kitefoil in waves

I am riding a 94cm aluminum mast and fuse with LF Impulse wings in ocean surf (shoulder high to overhead beach break) and bay swell. I used to run away from breaking ocean waves but have started to chase them cautiously . Have used a short 47cm mast but bottoming out was a problem. I prefer the long...

Re: Lets discuss ear protection

OzBungy I agree Docs ProPlugs lead a bit to desired when it comes to sealing and remaining in place...but since they fit in the far outer ear (and not deep in the ear canal) they work reasonably well for me. On the other hand, the far slicker SurfEars (which go deep in ear canal), I can not get into...

Re: Lets discuss ear protection

I've had surgery on both ears for Surfer's Ear (exostoses). Note that I have been surfing for 43y (with the last 25y in cold water requiring year round 4mm/3mm wetsuit with booties). I wear vented Doc's ProPlugs (https://www.proplugs.com/) glued with E6000 adhesive (Eclectc Products) to the really s...

Re: What a good 31 mile session looks like on my gps

Very cool. Wow, 5h, 31 mile session. Impressive. I'll just keep my (inferior) GPS traces to myself.

Re: Looking for comparison of LF Impulse and Moses Onda Foils

I didn't read your requirements.... but I will give you my impressions of the LF Impulse (wings only). I bought LF Impulse wings 4-5 months ago. I was riding the original LF Foilfish setup for 2 years. I still use the FF mast and fuselage with Impulse wings but will be switching to a limited release...

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

Interesting that in 2018 LF has the Impulse wings/foil (in collaboration with Cloud IX) and the Thruster wings (designed by Matt Wheeler). I currently ride original Liquid Force FF wings/foil in the waves. I am into riding real ocean waves and wondering which is the way to go. I was leaning towards ...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I had 4 sessions on JNJ, and would agree that it is not the most beginner friendly setup. For now I'm back learning basics on Rocket foil. BTW, it seems that the other vendors on aliexpress got the message and the competition is now on! https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2017-new-Carbon-Fiber-Hydrofoi...
