Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Yaw is not what turns a hydrofoil, rolling in the direction of turn redirects the upwards lift vector towards the inside of the turn and induces the change of direction. Just like stepping on a rudder pedal in a plane doesn't change direction, only points the nose in a new direction. In a plane whe...

Re: Moses 2018

Bugger Frank - we have fortunately no seaweed here now not even with the changed wind direction.

It is a PITA in late summer at some locations which you avoid then :(

Impossible to test anything in this...

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Thank you :D - and I am sure you are right Peert, it origins from sailing of course, even if used most often in aviation now, my mistake. My background in flying and aerodynamics/design, and the fact that when you google it today (just checked) yaw is mostly used in aviation, made me erroneously thi...

Amazing, very well remembered Revhed :thumb:

It was 3½ years ago, but with a lot of words only without simple illustrations it is not easy to understand for newbees, this is why I made a new updated one :naughty:

PS: This was a pretty long answer to Neil and slowboat in the other thread, but I think others could use it to understand how to turn a hydrofoil thus its own thread :thumb:

How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Hi, during the years this question has been put many times, very understandable as it DOES NOT turn like you are used to. Had some time yesterday after a surf session, and today waiting for wind or company, and will explain here: When riding a twintip or a surfboard or a skateboard or a snowboard, w...

Re: Balance question - before I get my drill out....

Unless I'm mistaken I see two mast mounts already drilled and you put your mast in the wrong mast holes they need to be in the other set near the front. looks like there are 6 mast holes drilled so you can move the mast back where you have it or took the front holes where it should be Agree fully, ...

Re: North Pro-Foil board settings?

Re: carving to toe

We are discussing beginners who can not carve or turn yet, that was my point. Of course when you have learned, kite up or down turns works easy and each has their own place when to be used, or just what one likes :thumb: Am describing some of the differences especially for new riders trying to carve...

Re: carving to toe

You are right about that Tadeusz, but for someone who has not learned turning the hydrofoil yet, it is NOT easy at all... And the downside with downloops for experienced riders are still, that you get the powerspike at the wrong moment namely going out of the turn and the kite is lower - meaning you...
