Re: Possible Hydrofoil sale scam

I was scammed on ikitesurf. Lost a lot of money for an imaginary board.

I’m afraid I’d avoid all sellers on that site, unless you can look them in the eye or confirm identity

Re: Moses 2018

Can anyone measure the hole separation for Moses front kite wings, such as the 548?

Additionally, does anyone on this thread (e.g. TomW) have a 590 or 548 that they are not using and might want to sell? Feel free to DM me.

Thanks,
James

Re: The New 2018 Airush Core Foil Series Out Now

Would be interested to see a proper analysis of this, but torsion results in shear forces around a central point, doesn’t it? And for shear forces, more material away from the centre will result in lower stress and therefore lower strain. Compare the torsional displacement of a solid rod compared to...

Re: Hung Vu, a kitesurfing pioneer, how did he help you?

I think he had a diary about learning, and he described how he started sailing in a closed bay but was unable to escape it. Then one day the wind was stronger (for his 2-line kite) and he was able to go upwind more - and then for the first time he could sail beyond the bay. An epiphany. My own exper...

North LTD foil board construction

I pinged North for details of the core of the green 2015 Ltd foil board (whether EPS or fused polystyrene) but they haven't responded :(

Does anyone here know the answer? I want to know If there is a danger of water being adsorbed if the board has a minor rail crack,

Re: How much does your HF and board Combo weigh?

I have an older Horue H13. The board is 2.2 Kg and the foil is about 1.5 Kg. I love the light weight - but the foil whistles at speed, whereas my Zeeko Makaira never did , though it was solid carbon and at least twice as heavy.
