Re: Convertible surf board

I have a Slash 5'4. I actually like the board better as a kite surfboard than as a foilboard. Feels really nice on a wave. My son can even surf on it. So the foil resides on another board. I also have a Double Agent 145 deck that is pretty good as a foiling platform, although it could be a bit stiff...

All the bad experiences come from brands like Cabrinha,

I truly believe in gear that you can maintain with basic supplies from a local shipshandler, and where inevitable wear can be seen and assessed on a regular basis.
Too bad some companies went the opposite path.

Re: What’s the best board you have ever tried?

Try an Alkita board www.alkita.fr, and you'll never go back. I'm totally hooked!
Playful boards, crafted with passion, that last forever.
Freeride isn't about riding in straight lines...

These boards are looking real good. They even have some nose rocker too. How is the flex? Are the stiff enough?
There's still a little bit of flex, but I'd say it's stiff enough. Only 3 sessions into it and it's getting better and better each time.

Re: Wakeskate and foil

Sure, the Spitfire design is different, unconventional, different in a good way!
Another session today on flat water/9m, and it felt really good. That deck is really comfy!

Re: Super simple very minimal bar/chicken loop system

...and the loops to adjust the steering lines are particularly good at catching the bar ends... If you want to KISS, why not just put a set of 3 knots on the leader lines instead?
Also, when that QR pin opens up under substantial load, you'd better not have any bit of hand or testicle around.

Re: Wakeskate and foil

Done! Good first session on it in pretty choppy conditions. It floats well, it's yellow and visible, and the pad is super comfy, and it's easy to get your feet locked in the right spots. 116x43, so has a little bit of surface area in the touchdowns. Fits in a mall car all mounted, fits the bill! IMG...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Hi Mike, I'd say the XLW wings are also a very good start for what you want to do. I'm also close to 90kg, and not so much into going in straight lines. I'm yet to be convinced of benefits of SUP sized wings for kiting.
From what I understand, wings are interchangeable

Re: What got you into Hydrofoiling?

Started windsurfing at 13 around Montpellier, then had plenty of fun doing it and progressing until I got to travel to Corsica, Tarifa, Morocco, ... and the local conditions didn't cut it anymore, plenty of wind for sure, but severe lack of waves, with only a handful of great sessions per year. On t...

Re: Trying to understand kite quiver

(...) Small kites will be used so little that you will wonder why did you get them in first place. Because those are the days that matter. You know, when conditions turn epic, when things get real, those are the days you'd hate not going out because you don't have the right gear. You'll never remem...
