Re: Kite Board Hydro Foils available NOV 2017

Just saw North foil. Interesting how little surface area between F wing and fuse. The board nose has a lot of flex. Heavy as most alu set ups are. F wing seems THICK!

If you are new to foiling, you may want to start with foil closest to back of board and then move forward in very small increments as your pitch control improves.
Thought as much. So the more forward the mast the more front foot pressure needed.

When we had a chance to try the board we just put the mast in the middle of the tracks and the straps at a middle position and it worked fine for all of us. We were all experienced riders.

North Pro-Foil board settings?

Hi Guys, Any suggestions as to what the alien code on North Pro-Foil means? Jokes aside. What would be a good starting point for a beginner limited foiling experience? Have my straps in forward position, going to take back strap off I think or might take off all together. Have some Kite wakeskating ...

I can understand the desire to put more volume in the nose so the board has some buoyancy given how short/narrow it is, but yeah, definitely looks like a dogdick.
I think ENATA is Spanish for Dogdick 8)

Re: New North Foil's 'PA Carbon Mix 50'

I clearly remember Sky Solbach saying that inserts were stainless steel in one video. Here I see brass inserts? Better than Aluminium on Steel I guess, but still. Just about to drop some money on one but have asked dealer for clearer picture on current batch.
