OK to kite near Afrodite’s rock, Cyprus?

Stopped by Aphrodite’s rock a short while ago and it struck me as a magic place to kitefoil around. The beach was empty. There are few rocks that might be too close to surface and need be avoided, but otherwise it looked doable. No signs to prohibiting kiting or anything. I don’t like to create prob...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

To ease learning, you need XLW wings. Standard wings are a challenge at first for even more seasoned foiler. As for whether Spitfire is better for you rather than classic foil, this is personal preference. I’ve been riding on it over a year and still like it. Owned 2 other foils before. It does take...

Re: Foil kites, removing sand from tip sewing?

There was a post about it in the past. Search thru foil kite section. Someone used soldering iron or hot nail to poke small holes in the fold. Apparently it worked well

Re: fastest free ride hydrofoil?

I was wondering why Zeeko decided to build Bullet - the fastest g10/Alu foil on the market (according to them). Now I know

Re: Any tips on building a foilboard...

There are few ways you can go: - Buy used foilboard that fits your foil or is easy to mod to fit. - Modify old surf or wakesurf or skim board - I modded one myself using Slingshot Space Pickle. It is a good size board even for a beginner http://snag.gy/O5CQqN.jpg http://snag.gy/TybFiz.jpg - build yo...

Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

Tell me guys, why would you now pick the hyperlink over the soul? Seems like the soul wins on every factor, even price. Plus there’s that FS warranty. Bear in mind that location has lot to do with the choice. Some places you can get a better deal on one vs the other. Plus Soul just came out and not...

Re: Rider weight versus foil classification (wind range)

Zeeko makes different size versions of the Spitfire. I assume a big part of that is rider weight. Actually no. XLW wings for Spitfire were designed to allow slow take-off and flight speeds, so it can be used to ride slower waves for example. XLW is also useful for lighter winds and easier on beginn...

Re: Moving from heavier to lighter foil

Lightweight foil/board will indeed be great for jumping. For a general snappines I'd get a smaller board first. In my experience, just switching to a small board made a significant change to how playful the setup was. In my book Alien Air is really big board with lots of swing weight. See if you can...

Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional Test ride video.

Its just a super fun Bi-Directional Twin Tip free riding foil :thumb: What is fun about it? Can't see it from the video. How does it ride toeside? Turns? I understand the attraction to TT riders who did not make a decent jibe in their lifetime, but IMO if you want to play you need to be able to tur...
