Re: Foil kite launching on small beach

ive launched my foils AT sMATHERS many times without issue. the problem with Smathers is sewage. don't go there with a cut or wound. also, on all occasions I've gone to Smathers ovet the past 15 years, the people on the beach do some really stupid things. and...if there are several kites there, it i...

Re: cutting the mast

30 inches is the plan for now. the slingshot is most probably going to stay, as selling it will be hard in north fla. I've got all kinds of time to build another carbon if I want. but with 4 lengths of sling shot mast I should give IT a try AS DESIGNED. whoever advised me of that, thanks.

Re: its not going to happen for me

there are no hydro foils within 4 hours of me so it will be next to impossible to observe one. I have been flying foil kites since 2000 and have always been an 'outsider 'in my area. Foil kites are still unheard of in North Florida so you can imagine the difficulty finding Hydrofoil guys.

Re: its not going to happen for me

yea...it's a slingshot not LF...losing my mind! I feel that I can chop the mast to 20 inches, I will be able to walk out to a better position where I can body drag. This shortened foil will be for learning only, and if I learn I will buy a new lighter foil. I had pics of my foil build when I lost my...

Re: its not going to happen for me

....so....my plan is to cut the mast on my cf down to 20 inches or so. my beach is onshore always, never side shore. my LF is heavy and sharp, making me not want to use it until I learn how. the real problem is sharing my time with other hobbies.

cutting the mast

thinking my home built cf foil/mast is useless for retail, I'm thinking to cut the mast to about 18 inches or so. this will require building a new mounting plate. has anyone done this successfully? the new slingshot is just to new and pristine to keep for my uses, so I will sell it and give my Caraf...

its not going to happen for me

I got stuck with 2 carafino foil boards...I made a carbon foil to fit them. a year went by and I never took them to the water. so last year I bought the slingshot system with 4 mast, covers, and alien air board. I installed the shortest mast and took it to the beach twice. it was in the water maybe ...
