Re: Tips for Ragnarok?

Any word on whether or not there's going to be a Ragnarok 2018?

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

As I have been saying about the Soloshot 3, they should have come out with a very basic model, just a camera with the gimbal, instead of loading it with a bunch of extra features. They would probably have satisfied customers by now. They may have been too ambitious with the extra features.

Re: How to steal Money from dummies 101

Soloshot is a bit different...they already had two models on the market, and not a kickstarter with their 3rd model. Just 50% discount if preordered. But things look good, should be shipped soon. I am sure to make a perfect product it takes time and always new problems come up. Looking forward to i...

Re: Has anyone gone totally hydrofoil?

It must be pretty awesome to be in the middle of such chaos and still have a smooth ride from a hydrofoil. That was a very bumpy day for me.

Re: Has anyone gone totally hydrofoil?

And some of the sloppy big waves I get on lake Erie may not be rideable with even the tallest mast. But then I am a beginner. Anyone have experience using a hydrofoil in wave conditions like this?: As Peter says, these are great conditions for hydrofoiling - huge fun. On a small kite (3.5m). Those ...

Re: Home made hydrofoil

Here's the foil itself. I am working on a new mast right now. Cutting a mold in the CNC machine for a reinforcement at the base of the mast, one that will allow me to add some extra metal at the bast where its flat.

Re: Has anyone gone totally hydrofoil?

I can't imagine giving up my twintips. Some spots have shallow water, and at other times there are weeds and wood debris. I can't imagine taking a hydrofoil into the Real Slick or a Planet of the Apes downwinder in Hatteras except with a very short trainer mast, and then what's the point? And some o...

Re: Home made hydrofoil

I would add, make the aluminum reinforcements out of stainless instead if you use carbon, and/or go in salt water. But that looks great for a successful home build! Really impressive. Funny long nose though, I bet a more compact board will make it easier! I will be using the grease pretty libeally ...

Home made hydrofoil

I did this with my CNC machine. Made molds out of PVC plastic wood, then made the molds out of carbon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXYt-pkg0Lc I have been at this quite a while, and here are some of the things I have learned: Don't mess around with complicated shapes for the joints. Flat surfaces...

Re: How many Hfoilers are in your spot?

Conneaut, Ohio has one guy who has several foil boards with various mast lengths. He has Slinghot Hoverglide masts, and he keeps offering everyone a chaqnce to try his boards. He is still something of a beginner, just practicing jibing to toeside and riding toseside. But I know at least two or three...
