Re: Buoy for race training

A variation of these were what we were using: http://www.etpracemarks.com/standard-ra ... ace-marks/

Re: 2018 Naish Global

#MokesProblems :lol: I knocked 2 fins off recently when I was crossing the reef on the crest of the wave and it suddenly sucked dry in front of me. :( Rode a slippery wake skate thing the rest of the session. LOL. Quite a few of those waves in HI. Always fun at backyards on low tide. Or Razors...go...

I've snapped all the fins off at various times, just wish I could say it was smacking lips. For me it's usually misjudging depth!
:thumb:
haha yeah I get those too. Also because sometimes its just so shallow and I have found that I'd rather grind the fins than cut my feet.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

If somone can make the same product and sell it for less than half the cost then maybe the industry price point is the issue. I want a second wing but 500+ for a peice of glass is ridiculous. Am I just as Immoral by borrowing friends high end wings for moulds and making my own wings to save money o...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

If not i Think people should do whatever they feel like without having to be judged by people with higher moral standards Yeah that is it tho. You have a right to choose whatever, but you do not have the right to not get criticized for making that choice. I appreciate the discussion tho. Remember t...

Re: Ronix frank vs slingshot RAD

I used to have Ronix and liked the boots. They run very small in size. I loved riding them....but I ended up not riding boots after some pretty bad crashes. I can't say much about how long they will last. Mine seemed to last fine, but I am also primarily riding waves so the TT didn't get a ton of ex...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Any guesses on who's design these carbon ones are based on? It doesn't look like any brand name foils I know of. They're not charging that much more than the aluminum ones. I wonder if they actually deliver. Like I said, to me they look a lot like Liftfoil who are also made in China so it could be ...
