Re: Foil - wave riding

I don't expect you to get into the impact zone. But if you're managed to get behind the line, there's got to be miles and miles of rolling ocean swell. That's the stuff I want to ride, not the breaking waves. That there is! I have had a number of sweet sessions in well over head high rolling swell....

Re: 24 hr epoxy cured in 1 hr

Also, a more hardener than recommended can decrease cure time. Not sure if that's recommended. Epoxy cross-links, so excess hardener doesn't get used, which is why it's recommended to be very precise with the ratios. Polyester systems however has an activator, and the amount of activator can speed ...

Re: Foil - wave riding

I have ridden this wave on the foil... Pics or it didn't happen :lol: You keep posting this pic of a guy with a black kite riding this slab, but what's really called for is one with you charging it on a foil :wink: Any form of photo or video evidence, pov or otherwise would be acceptable.

Re: Foil - wave riding

Interesting all this talk about wanting no kite input while your wave foiling. Go sup foiling or surf foiling if that's what you want! Embrace wave kite foiling as it is. Foiling with a kite on waves!..... I go the other way and embrace the kite in the waves, i loop it and wang it around. Sure its f...

Re: Help a student out and load up your Karma account

Please share the results and conclusions. Too often we go out of our way to fill in a survey but the "student" never goes out of their way to respond back with their findings.
PS Q6 whats the most important factor in buying gear didnt have an option for performance.... bit of a gap in the question.

Re: Ozone Edge for beginners

No dont get a 19m edge and attempt to learn in 9 knots. You will just end up swimming. Plus if the wind pulls up to 15-20 knots you will be punnish.
Be patient and wait for 15 knots. Below that is a waste of time while learning unless you just want to body drag around.

Re: Designed foil behaviour?

I am a designer and builder of my own boards. I also love TT/Mutant boards and have designed and built my own foil. I too considered a TT hydrofoil. But the compromises to make it work are far to great. You will end up with a foil that real draggy and slow, has to be stopped to change direction if y...

Re: Advice for hill ascents/descents

I would think that you would be able to go faster on the surface rather than in the air. Unless the surface was so rough that you couldn't go fast.
