Hydrofoil as a carry on for airlines

Hi: I've been traveling more with my gear. I'd like to start bringing the mast, fuselage and wings as a carry on. Has anyone done this successfully? This NSI bag http://www.northshoreinc.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=427&idcategory=205 looks very low profile and should sit under the seat well. ...

Re: Nobile split NHP converted to foil travel board

I used these and they worked well. https://www.amazon.com/Hillman-4149-Stainless-Pronged-25-Pack/dp/B00IAVIZ4O I also use these for straps. I've used these for pretty serious applications in ski mountaineering. I added a second set of holes to the bottom of my Split Foil so I could mount my liquid f...

Re: Nobile split NHP converted to foil travel board

Yes, it's heavy. My bag weighted 56 pounds. It was super compact. I was NOT charged on any flights but I'm leaning towards a bigger bag that would fit my lift foil and a lighter board. I love the split foil. It's super comfortable to ride strapless on but it is really heavy. Good luck.

Re: Nobile split NHP converted to foil travel board

I don't see the need for a plate. I've converted 2 super light skimboards to foil compatible. I over-drilled the hole size and filed it with epoxy and let it cure. I then drilled and inserted t-nuts. I put a pad over it. It works awesome. Super light, though I learned quickly it's not great at touch...

Re: Liftfoils materials and durability

I can't answer your question but I can tell you the Lift wings and fuselage are incredibly well made, super light and have a great finish and look. Even more important they are incredibly stable and easy to ride. I was shocked at the difference between the Lift and an aluminum (liquid force) ride. T...

Nobile Infinity Split review

Greetings. I did a lot of research and finally dropped the money on the infinity. I have a 138 split from Nobile and I really like it. I was looking to include my foil arsenal into my travel plans. I'm new to foiling but getting good, long rides and really enjoying myself a lot. Out of the box the b...

Re: What are the best and most picturesque foiling spots on the East Coast?

Given all our Great White activity over the past week the sharks in Obx are puny compared to the Cape. I still think a foil looks too much like the lures I troll offshore with. It's a teaser that looks like a big flying fish. Nantucket is great in the fall. Smith point is deserted and you can get fl...

Re: Stringy foil available here

I love the stringy foil. I'm a noob but I really liked the feel of the foil compared to my LF. I had some really great runs and was foiling in super lights winds for the first time. I eventually dropped the kite and had a very long swim with a big smile on my face. Craftsmanship is great too. It may...
