Re: Foot Strap recommendations

I use a pair of twin tip foot straps for the front two, for pretty much the same reasons you have stated.

Re: Alpine/Axis/Slingshot-Moses

If you go for an Alpine Carbon or an older Moses Vorace be aware that the mast is not vertical, it has either a fwd or aft angle, i guess to make it cut the water better? This does mean that you can end up on the limits of your foot strap and tracks just to get a balanced ride. Its not an issue if i...

Re: looking for large volume but light board

i wanted a Moses T60, but with rails. I had a Temavento made for me that is very similar to the current SYNC board that he is making. I honestly can't fault it, beautifully made and ideal for freeride foiling. If you buy a Temavento you will not be sorry.

Re: Mounting a hydrofoil on your TT

I drilled foil mounting holes and front footstrap holes in a Flysurfer Flywave. Epoxy in from the top some T nuts to bolt the foil into and use Rivnuts in the extra footstrap holes to give 2 front straps. I also made up a plate from paulownia wood to fit underneath and reduce flex. It works well as ...

Re: Skimboard foils

I moved from an Alien Air to a Nobile skim on my Lift foil; it made it much more lively. The strap positions are close to ideal ( I don't use a rear strap, but it looks about right.) The board is stiff enough that I have not noticed any flex in it and the orange deck pad helps when you fall off. The...

Re: Best Foilboard for Travel

I bought a Nobile Foil Skim for traveling, it works very nicely as a foil deck and covers me for when the wind increases too.

Re: Zeeko Airwave installing tracks

The TNUTS on the Shinn that attach the foil to the board are known as Thumb Nuts and easily available online.

HKA Safety Release. Hook Knives.

Hi, Please take a look at this article released by Hayling Island Kitesurf Association. It is intended to educate kitesurfers in the importance of carrying the correct type of line knife. I know some folk will make the decision never to carry one, that is their choice, but if you are inclined to car...
