Re: Entry level cost effective foil

Plummet, Raglan would be an ideal place to kite hydrofoil and not to far from the Naki.
Long rolling waves and deep water.

Re: Wave board to foil board

I had my foil mounted on an North Kontact 6'2"X17.5" wide it took a bit to get planning so I mounted it onto an old Naish fish its 20" wide and 5'5" long way quicker to get planning and easier to handle, the board has a large nose rocker which helps not to nose dive.
