Re: Mast/Strut Fiber Angles

Yep. I ran uni-on the angle from corner to corner of mast. Maybe 10 deg? This means it's not wrapped, correct? Because very hard to go 'around' mast LE with Uni. Not impossible, but hard. I still need to make a plug, so no. No tests for now. Also, I'm building for 60kg rider, and you are 80-90 :) 7...

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

The more I think about this the more I disagree that yaw is the primary turning function of the foil. I was out today on the mutant boosting and watching myself yaw the board aggressively multiple times. I was doing this well before foiling and my yawing experience did not help me on the foil. So.

With a mast you want stiffness in many directions. 45/45 is not that effective because each individual strand does not span m...

Re: DIY split wave twinny

Awesome build. I do worry that you have created a stress riser at the plate end. I would have radiused the carbon reinforcement so dispersion the stress loading away from the plate.

Re: Kitesurfing New Zealand north island round christmas

Why do you think Auckland is average? There would be nowhere else on earth you can kite on 2 very different oceans 50 mins drive apart.. the Pacific And the Tasman. This is true. There are better west coast beaches than muriwai and better estuaries and flat water locations than East coast Auckland ...

Re: Kitesurfing New Zealand north island round christmas
