Re: DIY onestrut kite

If you're aiming at very light winds, keep in mind that every gram counts! I observed that light wind kites use a huge wide and heavy inflating valve and single pump connector. So following your simplicity concept, here are my 2c : Save the weight. - use two old little valves, one for the leading e...

Re: Best Foilboard for Travel

Why do you want a front strap "surf" position ? It is not a surfboard but a hydrofoil :D Once back when starting 4 years ago, I thought the single frontstrap was good for waves and fun - I don't think so anymore. If it was a crossover board, of course it could be needed, but it is not. Maybe if you...

At 3:11 you can clearly see where the holes are in the Nobile Split board for their own foil.

Re: Skimboard foils

I had bolted my original Fish Foil to a Victoria Skim Board and it worked quite well until I almost snapped the skim board completely in half and lost the foil. My goal in life is to find a board that will get me up and planing in the lightest wind possible (100kg!!) so I can then pop onto the foil...

Re: Skimboard foils

Sorry neptune262, it was not as easy to search as I imagined at first...

Skimboard foils

Hi all, I was very interested when Nobile first announced the skimboard foil concept. I have never seen any on the water, apart from in the promo video, so wondered if anyone has any actual experience of using the skimboard with a foil? I also see that now the board shape outline is completely diffe...

Re: line length for Hfoiling in >15 knots

All personal preference IMHO - so experiment yourself about what feels right for you. When you change, just be prepared that you might get some timings wrong and crash. My personal preference at the moment is my 25m line set for foiling. I tried my 21m set on a windier day than normal, but couldn't ...
