Re: G10 wing replacement for fragile carbon

Just ordered a Gong G10 front wing medium.... you need specialist machines to work on the material, hacksaws, files and bench grinders are useless. Right on, hope the gong wing attaches without too much trouble. It is probably heresy to suggest it, but may end up being easier to make a new fuselage...

Re: Ocean rodeo Soul too KB specific?

I'd consider a Soul if good deal came along ... for kiting, maybe for sup, but probably not for surfing. I haven't tried, but am told any air in the suit makes it too buoyant to duck dive. I suspect it would get water in it. And then a safety issue: you break a seal, swimming in the waves with this ...

Re: G10 wing replacement for fragile carbon

Pros and cons of G10 wings right there.

Foil: I am guessing Moses doesn't make them. You could buy some and drill holes to fit your fuselage. Or you could make your own ... not that hard to make a workable wing, even a doofus like me did it ... a few hours with a belt sander. :D

Re: 50% off happy foils black friday???

that one above is the entry level LF....described as good to learn on, but you may end up progressing past it.

The mid level happy foil might be a better investment at same price, though without the board

Re: Helmet with half Visor

I have used the gedi half visor. Great idea but didn't work all that well. Really distorts vision. I ended up going back to sunglasses.

Re: Wheeler Wonder?

Thanks for the link. Interesting to flip through the photos to see the evolution in products since starting in Sep 2016. Also fun to see the machines and equipment used in a garage operation. Simikar to stringy wings, i think the only secret sauce here is that simple works just fine. For free ride n...

Re: Bloody onshore dumping wave combo.

that sounds so frustrating! I haven't exactly experienced that, but have had a variety of issues with needing to get outside kelp beds. In some goofy situations like this, I've thought about getting the foil out to deeper water by other means ... like swim it out with a surfboard and tie it off to s...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Looks like in 2018 RE wants a piece of the hydrofoil cake as well. They now have rebranded Slingshot Hover Glide foil on offer http://www.rideengine.com/GEAR/surf-foil/Futura-Surf-Foil.html and it looks very similar to this Chinese knockoff with less sexy paint job if anyone is interested https://x...

Re: Tips for blunting up mast and foil?

What's the worst that can happen? KIDDING, don't use a grinder! I may do the same for sup foil, I'd think sandpaper or file and some patience.

Re: Wave surfing swell with kite hydrofoil

I have been kite foiling a while, about to get into SUP foil too. I think you'll find the kite foil doesn't give enough lift to be able stay up on the foil at surfing speeds. Though I've never tried. The big name in SUP/surf foil is GoFoil. Wing looks quite large in relation to kite foils, much more...
