Re: Power.

The feeling of super efficiency, milking the smallest amount of energy out of the wind is quite exciting, but when chasing that low end, I found out that I'm struggling more riding toeside, where I find it harder to load the foil and stay up than when riding on my heelside. So for that, a bit more j...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Hey, Just a short question - I'm currently using the carver setup with the white and green foil, looking to move into the spitfire. Is it possible to use the spitfire mast with the original white and green fuselage + wings? Yes I believe so, bolt patterns obviously match, although because the Spitf...

Re: Best Foilboard for Travel

I've happily used the Cabrinha Double Agent board for travelling. At 145cm, it fits in a TT wheelie bag that is easy to travel with (and not overtaxed). The option to ride it with fins and without the foil allows to extend the range and match the various conditions you're likely to meet. Note that I...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

:o The big advantage of the Takuma over the Spitfire is that you can use it to shovel the snow out of your driveway. Truly versatile!

Re: light wind surfboard VS foil board

Water conditions make all the difference. If there are surfable waves that you can get to, the surfboard will provide the most fun on the wave, and maybe it's no big deal if you have to walk back upwind every now and then, as long as you get your wave count. If there are waves but it's dead onshore ...

Re: Correct stance on a waveboard for riding upwind

I'd say "whatever works!"... There's no definite answer as there are so many variables in the shape of a board that the differences can be very significant. Typically, the back foot would be brought forward, but it's not always the case. I've had one board where it didn't help, and actually made the...

Strategy: first or last wave of a set?

Been out this evening on a proper sizable swell 1.5-2m at 12sec, and coming with a few questions. Context: it took me a few attempts to find a gap between sets, and bodydrag out. Got a few on the head without too much drama, but I thought after that that I would stay at the back for most of my ridin...

Re: Has anyone gone totally hydrofoil?

When we put 9m2 kites on waveboards it's blowing 30 kn+.....we stay on our 17's often til 20 kn :lol: Weird, I tend to use as small a kite as possible when riding waves on my strapless board. So 9m is from about 17kts till mid twenties, then 7m till high twenties, and 5.5 from 30 onwards. With lots...

My Spitfire with XLW is silent at all speeds.
Same, didn't really notice much noise. I had more noise on the blue wing, and even more when I had a few scratches on the tips of that wing.
