Re: Ghostwhisper adapter plate

Da
Good find. I did not see that on Moses site, but it looks like it would not work. Hard to tell. But looks like it is for Track to smaller foil. My GW has the large base and the board has the small bolt pattern.
I am pretty comfortable drilling base as long as I take it slow.
Thanks all for help

Re: Ghostwhisper adapter plate

Thanks. Did you use any coolant? water? I assume no. Like you said go slow. Like the tip about coming in from both sides. Next question is how does the geometry of the foil to board work. I have only flown the hoverglide foil. I have heard the GW will require a different position of feet. I think I ...

Re: Ghostwhisper adapter plate

You guys have been supper helpful. Leaning towards aluminum adapter plate because it is cheaper than G10.
Or drilling holes in the foil base? IS this stupid. Anybody know tricks for drilling in carbon fiber? or take to machine shop?

Re: Ghostwhisper adapter plate

Grig Damn, would that not be nice. Mine is the new GW91 so it must be the 2018? I cannot even find the 2017. Also the reason I picked the 91 is it fits in my bag with none to spare. So I think the 42 would be hard to travel unless I carry on plane, and I hear TSA can call you on since it is sharp. T...

Re: Ghostwhisper adapter plate

BWD Like your thoughts to.
I thought about drilling foil base plate but think that is risky.
I don't like drilling board as it is risky.
I think making base plate is achievable and lower risk especially the way Tom describes it.

Re: Ghostwhisper adapter plate

Tom I like your thinking. I was going to get tricky and make a track slot for T Nuts for adjustability since I don't know how the foil will match board for performance and stability. I only use a hook to get up so I am not locked in (no straps). Do you think since I am basically strapless this kind ...

Ghostwhisper adapter plate

Hello Kitefoil community I have a Newind splitsurf board. I had Ricardo add foil mount holes when he built it for me a few years ago. Since then I have learned to Foil. I ordered the GW to be the ultimate travel combo. The GW base plate mounts are not compatible with the splitsurf. Bummer for me. Op...
