Re: how 2 adjust spotz3 stabilizer? verify its spotz 3 stabi

Hi Firewire, if yours measures 35cm as you say then it should be the right one. if you look at the other picture in the other thread, then you will see very clearly how much shorter the sp2 is. As for the singing i sanded back the trailing edges of the strut and wings. On my foil they were pretty th...

Re: Spotz 3 is out, what do you think??

This may be a bit late, but I had the same issues with my new Spotz3. Turns out that it was delivered with a stabilizer from a Spotz2. I took me very long to get used to the much shorter fuselage. The Spotz3 stab is about 4cm longer on the fuselage and this makes all the difference. I finally figur...

Re: frontwing made of 2 windsurf fins? link?

My forward swept wing is made from kite race fins. The rear swept is from windsurf fins, both work very well, but try and use the stiffer fins. If you are limited with the flex you can ad some biaxial or uni to reduce this. I later cut off the ends of the rearward swept wing, about 5cm and reattache...

Re: foiling near London

If it's windy normally some one is around, but obviously week days are a bit quieter. At East beach for foils normally starts being deep enough around 1.5 hours before and after High tide or so. Try not to start learning if the wind is blowing towards the boom! Especially with a Silent as they float...

Re: foiling near London

Sorted :D

Yeah high tides are running better hours towards the weekend. Although like you probably know anything above 15mph generally it gets pretty choppy. But found a slower tide seems more friendly.

So what stage of learning are you at?
