Re: New idea for pumping foils?

Glad to see someone trying it. My idea was to do it w the main wing, a la Aqua Skipper.

There must be a way to pump more efficiently, and to look more natural while doing it...

Re: Nobile foil board nightmare!

I have a hoverglide I’ve been treating badly for over a year without corrosion issues.

Nobile splitboard was in my shopping list for a travel setup.

Now I will have to come up with another plan...

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

I've been thinking about how hard it is to compare the marginal wind performance of different kites. If we could design the perfect comparison event, what would it look like? Location: somewhere with reliably marginal winds. San Diego's mission bay (sail bay) comes to mind, since that's where I kite...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

I just saw Ultras for sale used on ikitesurf classifieds for the first time. But they were 2018 demo kites, listed for almost new prices. I still haven't seen any "unloading" of these kites.

Re: Kiteboarding is officially sailing, gets its own medal for Paris 2024

I just want to be able to watch hydrofoil kite racing with multiple drone angles and LiveWire type on-screen augmentation. It's the only way I can actually follow a sailing race on TV. If it takes Olympics to do it, fine. I'd rather someone throw just a bit more money at the existing kitefoil gold c...

Re: Latest opinions and gear for a beginner foiler?

True, learning the feel of the foil during surface-riding is part of the foiling progression. But at least surf-foils have shorter masts, which help when learning to foil. Maybe use a surf foil, but shim the stabilizer to increase angle of attack, and reduce lift of the foil, so you can practice sur...

Re: Lighter fuselage for Slingshot Hoverglide?

Hoverglide masts are really heavy too...

Probably easier to just sell the hoverglide and buy something used and carbon. At least the hoverglides hold their resale value pretty well.

Re: fastest free ride hydrofoil?

If you really hit logs that often, why are you interested in a higher speed?
