Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Deals like the Happy Foil for $500 come up here and there. But you have to jump on them. I do think you'll have a much better time starting this way. I've got a buddy with the JNJ foil that asked me to test ride it for him because he didn't yet have enough experience. I thought it was a good setup, ...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

For $1100 you can get this one brand new. This is where I bought my setup and these guys were great. No tax or shipping costs by the way.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I have to agree with BWD. Starting with a known cheap/used foil and selling it to upgrade is your best bet in my opinion. I bought the LF Foilfish brand new for $1K at the beginning of last season. I've seen them used for $500. This is the board, mast, fuselage, wings, and a longer fuselage for lear...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

It looks like the H4 front wing is $549 by itself. Is there a cheaper source?

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

We keep saying "Chinese factory" like only knock-offs are made in China. My brand-name Slingshot hoverglide was made in a Chinese factory... Just to play devil's advocate... we can imagine the brand name folks spent loads of money on R&D perfecting their gear before having it manufactured in China....

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Oyer oyer all ye nit pickers I have a general observation for ye... I'm pretty familiar with it having several dozen patents. It's true you can't patent something that's not novel. But then how can someone "rip you off" if what you've done has already been done before. Sure, if you think your desig...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

BTW, there is no such thing as "intellectual property" Well... I understand that as an opinion of a philosophical nature. But the laws of the U.S. (and all other developed countries) very definitely make provisions for protecting your ideas so that you can profit from them. They choose to call this...
