Re: beginner hydrofoiler questions

I would not recommend adding line lengths unless you are experienced with it. One new variable is hard enough to deal with, let alone two.

I’m 185lbs, and when I was learning, the best conditions for me were 13-15 knots with a 10m. Second best was 12-13 knots with a 12m.

Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

J Shapes (which isn’t on your list). I wasn't considering a tuttle mount, although their product does look nice. How would you mount that 633 setup onto a J Shapes? They will build their boards with a track if you request it. Does anyone out there have the J Shapes Pocket 100? Looking for feedback.

Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

You’d expect suppliers to read the writing on the wall and kind of dump the unnecessarily complicated truck-sized horrors they’ve been offering for freeride so far. The Big boards are great for big guys, learning, and lighter winds, but, yeah, I’m surprised the US manufacturers aren’t offering many...

Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

I do think that these pocket boards have so much to offer. That, combined with a significant market of intermediate foilers looking to upgrade are going to overwhelm suppliers. Select and order soon. Just sayin You’d expect suppliers to read the writing on the wall and kind of dump the unnecessaril...

Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

Very helpful, thanks! I’m surprised there aren’t more pocket boards out there. Looks like if I want under 110cm my best options are Kanaha, Dwarfcraft, and J Shapes (which isn’t on your list).

Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

Bumping to see if anyone else has any other recommendations on a pocket board? I’m looking in the 100 cm-108cm range. I’ve looked at Groove skate, naish, dwarfcraft, j shapes, zeeko mini, and kanaha.

Re: What does true mean for you?

Thanks Dan.

By the way, I have ridden North kites since I started on a Rhino in 2007. I’m hopeful the new brand won’t miss a beat as far as producing great kites. I’m not a huge fan of the new name, but if the kites are the same, I really couldn’t care less about the name.
