Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

interesting to note, there hasnt been any mention in this thread about the designer of these wings. Matt wheeler (wheeler wings) is very well known in the gorge area apparently. these wings are designed to catch waves and carve hard without cavitating. seen some very impressive maneuvers on these de...

with my old 10m speed 4 lotus and my XLP wing on the alpine foil i was able to ride in 7-10kt days.....lulls to less than 5kts and gusts to 10kts. kite sits at zenith beautifully in almost no wind. if it hits the water its incredibly easy to relaunch in 5-7kts. prob at 12m would be the money size fo...

Re: Question for Alpiners

keep the front wing at 0 deg, not sure its really advisable to mess with that one....

i've used 1.1 deg and 0.7 for rear.....1.1 required too much front foot pressure.....0.7 was great for learning transitions as you tend to stay up on the foil better...

Re: Wind speed for Foiling, Kite dropping out of sky?

What wind speed do most people Foil in ? was out the other day the wind speed was around 20 knots, a Foil rider came past , and I'm thinking " that's look interesting, and brave" . so it can be done in high -ish winds. e.g. Racing. just to give you an idea, i have a 9m sonic2 race kite that i recen...

Re: What hydrofoil board to buy?

aftergetting fairly good on my alpine foil i had a go on my buddys foil fish, it was definitely not easy. i'd say those designs being beginner friendly is a myth. only thing friendly about it was the price. the cabrinha looks to be the same . had another friend on one of those and he progressed slow...
