Re: looking for large volume but light board

Axis 48 - best board IMO based on what you are looking for. I also like the Moses T60, but not having tracks is a deal breaker for me. http://www.axiskiteboarding.com/product/axis-ride-48-carbon-foilboard-foikiting/#.WieR86aIahA I have no affiliation with Axis but their new ride 48 is nice.

I had the medium and large wing sets, and stab sets. I never measured speed. It was faster than 20 knots.

Can I ask what you are riding nowadays?

Re: G10 wing replacement for fragile carbon

I’m not sure the Gong AOA would help. I owned one. Their stab is asymmetric wing at 0 degrees, best I could measure. While other foils I’ve owned had stabs with symmetric foils at angles up to 3 degrees to make lift. FYI Gong foil is on sale for 799. It’s a good foil. I wish I still had mine. hi Dw...

Re: The wingtip lower than the board game.

Not on purpose, but I’ve crashed the kite by accident while on foil and managed to relaunch and keep riding before stalling out. I’ve seen videos of people doing this on purpose. Next time your out do it on purpose. Get the kite real low, then tap the water with the wing tip! did it yesterday :)

Re: Pocket board width

many boards are still designed like old no foiling or hybrid boards, even if they have no fin option :roll: . Konvex decks, narrow flat noses, long tails, normal rails and many other details are IMHO remains from the old world and have nothing to do with well shaped real foil boards. hi Horst . . ....

Re: Board Build #2

awesome write-up and build Matt :D my 118cm has about 6cm nose lift . . . wish it had a bit more but most accidental touch downs are fine, just the drops from near full height are generally not recoverable. I started a build with a lot more rocker but found that once I had the air gybes, I could not...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I've ordered a Chinese Takuma - rode the real one on sat and had a blast. It's nearly identical as far as I can see. This will cost me $440 versus $1400 USD plus shipping. This is how the Takuma went last weekend in lightish wind. I'm on a 9, buddy is on a 5 on my zeeko. https://vimeo.com/232342993...
