Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

I just had 6 weeks in Brasil. As a keen SB rider, I almost didn't take my foil with me this time, thinking the waves are really fun only on a SB. Well, I was sooo wrong. Foiling in a less then perfect conditions, turned my session in to a great one. I had a 1000cm3 front wing, up to head high waves,...

Re: What’s the best board you have ever tried?

my wife got to try her Nomad Carbon -Wave in sunny Brasil/Taiba. She is so happy with it, the board is amazing!!! It goes up wind without any effort, super smooth ride, great to play on in small waves. She said its like riding on air... Highly recommending it! (we are not affiliated with Nomad) ps: ...

Re: Eye Protection Goggles that can be used with helmet

this never fogs up on me, its polarised, with changeable lenses, relatively cheap, fits the helmet and very comfortable.

Re: How to Sit on a foil

this is the oposit of how I do it. back hand in the middle of the bar, front hand to controll the front of the board and to shift weight (but) into balance position. the transition need to be faster, to be able to do it in conditions less ideal then on the video. Windmaker is right, its easy, should...

Re: Brazil Nov/Dec: spots for foiling and riding twintip

I'm in Taiba. I foil every day, regardless of the conditions... In the Ocean, you need to be confident to get through the shore break, once at open water it's fine. We also have a wave spot with flat water behind the reef at low tide and no waves to get you out to open water. (you need to pay attent...

Re: A case for full face?

it was the front wing, he fell on it throat first as the board buckled under him.
it was factory setting, no sanding, its not sharp to touch (like the trailing edge on the mast) but of coarse landing on it with force, physics change...

Re: A case for full face?

I'm also safety conscious. However, I'm not sure if we can cover all bases with the full helmet. My son is a competent foiler, and still, during a flying tack, he crashed and fell on the blade, cut his neck. Fortunately, it was not to deep... So, now we looking at a few choices, ride "naked" or dres...

Re: The stagnant foiler.

I will think about a bigger wing. But i like to go fastish. So reducing the speed for a big slow wing just so i can practice transitions might not be fun for me. I was thinking the same, before I got the 1000cm2 front wing (Fone) and have to say I was pleasantly suprised to go 45 kmh on it (measure...
