Re: How to Assemble a Naish Foil Set

The 2017 Naish foil (Liquid force wings) used Allen key heads for foil and mast connections and some nuts with nylon washers on Allen key heads for base plate mounting - all tools were provided with the foil set and even one spare screw and nut for the base plate mounting. Sounds like a shame they c...

Re: kite low AR easy relaunch or race for hydrofoiling?

Look for a light weight specific LEI (many manufacturers now have kites aimed at foiling) or a foil kite if you want under 10kts reliability for the kite to stay in the air. If your experience is with LEI kites, I would suggest you stick with those. In light weight LEIs you don't need big sizes - th...

Re: Hydrofoil in 8/12 knots at 80Kg(176lbs) rider what kite size better?

If you a heavier rider, then a 12m should be fine (maybe a 14m if you are really a heavy person) - I use a 10m strutless kite for all HF conditions above 7kts, but I am light (70kg)! As you post you are 80kg, this is border line for the 10m, so I would recommend the 12m. Larger kites (i.e.17m) have ...

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.
