Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

Great to see this. That's pretty full-on. Big :thumb: :thumb: for pushing the limits. I'm not surprised the surfers hate this! I would too! I'd stay out of their way. It's only a few grumpy old surfers and some with a bad attitude. The pros are pretty open to seeing what I can do. Most of the video...

Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

In the video you are foiling in between surfers while on the wave. In my opinion that is not cool! You are blasting along with a floating axe that could potentially kill someone in the water. Stay away from the surfers and use the foil to get to wave sections the surfers can reach. Hookipa is a tig...

Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

Never heard of Armstrong until this week when it’s all over Facebook. Where have you been ? When the trend for surf is slower foils aka GoFoil, Takuma and short masts - you are promoting long masts and what appear to be higher aspect wings. It looks like your foil is designed to be ridden at higher...

Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

Foils look nice! Please comment on 2 front straps vs single strap for wave riding. A leash is shown attached just below the knee. What are the torque forces like with a foilboard? What is the benefit of the cut out nose on the the foilboards? The Y strap allows you to get heel on the rail and easie...

Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

You say "wear a helmet" - but you dont on the video ? Or was that the day you learned that :naughty: You will fall forward and when the wave pushes the foil at you then it is a bit playing the odds whether the foil will hit you or not. Some of my early sessions were with a helmet but on this one I f...

Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

I've been pushing my limits of kitesurfing foiling last couple of years. My new Armstrong Foils have allowed me to push harder in bigger waves and I finally had the break through session Jan 3rd 2018 at Hookipa and Lanes, Maui. http://malolohawaii.com/products/Armstrong-foils What I've learned. Beat...

Kevin Collins Wave Kitesurfing Foil Session Hookipa and Lanes, Maui Hawaii

Probably the most difficult thing you can do on a foil with a kite is ride larger waves. After three years I finally sort of figured it out on the perfect size and wind angle and Foil Set Up.

Re: Liquid Force Elite foil

I have the 9m and 12m Elite kite (the same kites Julien used for the video here on Maui). I love the kites and I wasn't sure I would. It's my first Foil kite in over 14 years. (F-One monster almost took me out back in the day) These kites are easy to use and forgiving as a new foil kite rider. It's ...

Re: Liquid Force and Cabrinha after market Wings?

OBX-Toeside-Air-Tack.gif every wing has it's own feel. Why would foils be any different. They are pretty damn inherently efficient and I fully expect the next few years to be pretty exciting as we see the fun side get a bit more R&D. Right on, another like minded soul. Down to the nitty gritty thou...
