Re: Best place to learn to foil on East Coast

Drive up to Merritt Island. Foil Kelly Park. Chest deep for miles. Many foilers ride there. No weeds. Better than OBX for learning and you can sleep at home. Short drive.

Re: Looking for my first foil board (surf+kite foiling)

You can have all in one board. You have to understand that you can paddle into waves with really small boards. Too many people are buying boards way too big for prone foiling. For example Look here. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bm92svFnPnx/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=7kpewompcnu8 Surfer is 6’3 ...

Re: Water trapped in mast

Try to figure out which of the plastic plugs is leaking. Remove that plug. Drain and try to reinstall the plug.

If you fail, spray foam the cavity. When using spray foam you’ll need to remove the plug from both ends, so the foam can fill and expand both directions.

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

I have a takuma v100 and a LF happy foil. I hate the surf foil for kiting, slow and doesn't "take off" or build apparent wind at all...it's torturous. Great for actual surfing though. I’ve heard from others, the Takuma original surf foil was the slowest foil on the market. I’m not familiar with Tak...

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

My motives for staying with 68cm mast on my surf foil, is it keeps my skills at a high level for when conditions are good for surf foiling, not kite surf foiling.

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

Peter,

Do you have a shorter mast to go with those surf wings? I know some pro guys who won’t ride tall masts with surf foils. Surf foils react quicker on shorter.

I use a 68cm mast on mine. It can be tricky when the wave size is bigger though 😃

Re: Teaching wife hydrofoil.

My wife kites a surf foil. Easy and safe in her opinion. She is 63

She has no interest in scary looking kite foils.
