Re: Cabrinha Fireball vs slider rope.

I've used both. For regular TT riding I still use a chickenloop. For foil/surf I now use a slider rope.

I truly don't see the value to the Fireball system, maybe someone somewhere likes it but I'm sure noone likes it as much as the Cabrinha marketing guys.

Re: Cabrinha Fireball vs slider rope.

The slider is way better. Fireball is all about marketing claiming it changes the pull directions etc. but really that's what a slider actually does, the Fireball is just a chickenloop you can't do unhooked tricks with

Re: How to make a kite

Well the video definitely implies that Core kites are made in Sri Lanka, no doubt about that. Then you look at their websites etc. and they definitely claim to be MADE in Germany. They are either flat out lying or hopefully just lost in translation and they really mean "Designed in Germany", just li...

Best Foilboard for Travel

What board is the smallest and/or lightest for traveling?

I have a kite golf-bag but seems all these foilboards are too wide.

Other option is just mount to a skim and unbolt for the travel since skims/boogie boards travel free generally

Building a lightweight compact plywood hydrofoil board

Is it possible?

Basically a little bigger than a wakeskate, with the amount of thin ply can it actually be lightweight or does it need to be foam to be reasonably light for air-travel?

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

Not sure what your question actually is due to a possible typo but the Happy foil is great. Not super stable at low speed like the foil fish but much better glide and more fun going fast! You will progress past beginner and want something less draggy I don't have the happy pill board but I heard its...

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

Just pick up a 2017 happy foil on sale this winter. Should be very cheap and great to take you up to solid intermediate. Better than the rocket foil in my opinion. Not sure about thruster but it's brand new and probably slightly better so it will cost more.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

So the Chinese Takuma is $450 including shipping for one unit and it works perfect for surf foiling and seems like decent quality? Did you just email sublimation and tell them you want "the big foil" or something? Because the product pictures vary widely and it seems they could ship the wrong type.....

Are the 2018 naish wings still compatible with liquid force fuselages?

Re: teaching absolute newbie

I wanted to teach my wife but I think it would be way too hard for a non kiter.
