the limit is your imagination and the people who design the foil................respect............
I can imagine all sorts of cool tricks. I don't always imagine the things that can go wrong.

Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

In the end, who cares. It's all supposed to be about having fun. And I get that some people find arguing online to be fun too. ;-) Well said, when I'm even near a wave with my foil the concentration goes into high gear. While that may take away from the enjoyment a little the transfer of power from...

This is the style we need to see more of

That's pretty cool and maybe the canard setup is better for wave riding. I would love to try one. But those were some pretty tiny and weak waves. I like the angle of the video.

For people who are currently using big SUP type wings for kitefoiling in waves, what do you think the limit is as far as wave size?
chest high max. big wings can't be controlled at higher speeds.

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.
