Re: Ocean Rodeo Mako vs Nomad Wave TT

Awesome. I've been drooling over nomad boards for years. I've never seen one in the flesh, But their construction techniques and design are one of the best out there. I'll never own a nomad board as I make my own boards. But the boards I make have some inspiration from nomad. Me too. I build my own...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Mako vs Nomad Wave TT

I’d check the Liquid Force hippy stick line as well. I’ve just had a Moon Patrol. Only had one short session so far but very impressed. Rides the same both ways and whilst I’m no expert at toeside, I did my best toeside ride and carve ever. Plus they are much cheaper than the Mako or Nomad. Well, y...

First was the Click bar.

Then came the Rebel in only 4 lines.

Now North will change name to South Kiteboarding.

Re: How small a foilboard can be for very light wind?

Thanks you very much Sergio for your picture and explanation. Thats what i needed.

This controversial point has solution. The bigger the hydrofoil wing, the smaller the board needed to waterstart in extra lightwind.

Great video.

Re: How small a foilboard can be for very light wind?

Thanks for your answer.

In my spot there is a discussion about if its possible or not to hydrofoil in 5 knots and a 80 x 37 cm flat wood board.

Huge difference from 140 x 40 with Lot of volume raceboard to 80 x 37 cm with no volume at all piece of wood, i guess

The race guys go with pretty small boards these days, i can waterstart with my r1v2 17m in 5 knots with a single downloop up to foiling, so i dont need much board to do it. I do need the board when i touchdown gybing or tacking.
How much is pretty small?
what size of board do you use?

Re: How small a foilboard can be for very light wind?

Well, thanks for a much longer explanation, Pedro.
It does make sense.

But still have doubt if anyone can waterstart in 5 knots with such small board without a small gliding first.
In this case, we could even fix a stick with two pads in the mast

Re: How small a foilboard can be for very light wind?

The size , volume and shape of the board does help ALOT in extreme lightwinds. That doesnt mean you cannot start in the same wind with a R1V2 19m and a much smaller board, it just requires alot more technique and no mistakes. So, you say that i would be able to waterstart in 5 knots, for example, w...
