New North Foil's 'PA Carbon Mix 50'

Anyone familiar with this magic gew?
Is it carbon fiber reinforced polymer, carbon fiber reinforced plastic or carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRP, CRP, CFRTP)?

Re: Extruded Aluminium hydrofoils

I have been trying to get these guys to create 4" foil for some time now.....and the only vendor in the USA sells them at odd lengths....they dont seem to get it....and shipping from the UK where they are made is outrageous....

Re: North rebels

Not sure you want a kite that flys forward....I purchased a few foil dedicated North Vegas' to foil with as they tend to sit back in the window. The rebels seem to throw me off balance as they want to go upwind too fast....

Re: Waxing foil?

I was considering a wax sealer after constant scratch repairs using glazing putty...epoxy is a good sealer but Im constantly scratching it on a pebble shoreline (yes we all know to go out deep but sh*t always seems to happen to all foilers)

Re: Foiling, a Pastime Worthy of Silicon Valley - NYT article

"$6,000 each. In total, he estimates he has sold 110 foils, and has 50 in construction. This year, the demand skyrocketed. He said hundreds are on a waiting list."

Really?

Re: Alloy versus Carbon masts

Im actually wondering about width....does a 4" mast provide any benefit over a 6" mast? Not to hijack the thread...just wondering.
