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.

Re: Deal on Airush ultra vs. Naish Boxer

I had two friends with Airush say it doesn’t jump. I own Boxer. It jumps fine. So, I’d say go for the better sale price.

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

The only friend I have seen have trouble getting range from a surf foil, was a footstrap cripple. He could not put his feet where they needed to be. And there was no convincing him to ditch the straps.

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

They are fun, and yes, I do use a smaller kite than when I use with my kite foil. I prefer tracks because I ride the surf foil slid back, foot over mast. I ride my kite foil slid up, foot a little behind mast. Don’t like Tuttle, used to have Tuttles.

Re: One Board - Kite and Surf Foiling

Hi Dwight, Can you sent me info about your board? Looks awesome. For kite foiling I'm mainly on a Nobile Skim Foil board and my main board for paddle surfing is a 5'3" Tomo Vader. The Vader is pretty much a one board quiver for me. I paddle surf the Vader in everything from knee high to overhead su...
