Re: What are your Worst Accidents Hydrofoiling?

I got the foil stuck in the lines, 5m kite on a windy day. Kite looped hard before I had a chance to do anything. I decided to release safety right away but the bar hit the foil and kite continued to loop. I released second safety but as I did realized my board and kite would be gone so I just held ...

Re: Landing on the board edge with my shins. Ouch!

I bought some mountain bike shin guards today. They came with knee protection too but I just cut them off. They fit great and worked well in the water. Of course I didn't hit my shins today but I did feel better knowing I wouldn't hit my bruised shins again.

Re: Short Mast VS Long Mast

I can only tell you my experience. First lesson was on 24" mast which I think is good to get the feeling of foil. Second day bought ful size mast and went for it. I personally didn't feel any difference as far as drag under the board. In the beginning I had a hard time stabilizing flight and having ...

Re: Foiling Jibes -- Strapped or Strapless?

Just wanted to add a little coming from a beginner. Today I was going into the ribe, move both feet forward... as soon as the board hit the water I would move the other foot back and finish the jibe. I got a couple where I would only touch down for a couple seconds. Not the best but it was helping m...

Re: Foiling Jibes -- Strapped or Stapless?

I was trying to jibe for the first time yesterday and that is dangerous. I felt like I was giving it good tries but they all ended in crashes that either wrapped a line around the foil, smashed my shins or hit my head. I need to learn how to fall without killing myself.

Small rear wing

I have a gofoil and it comes with two wing sets, free ride and race. I have been using the free ride set but yesterday I put on the race rear wing. I was surprised at how nicely it carved.

Made me think it would be fun to try bigger front wings with smaller back wings. Anyone try

My Aguera Go Foil has a nose, would love to cut it off but not sure what is under there.
