Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

Never heard of Armstrong until this week when it’s all over Facebook. Where have you been ? When the trend for surf is slower foils aka GoFoil, Takuma and short masts - you are promoting long masts and what appear to be higher aspect wings. It looks like your foil is designed to be ridden at higher ...

Re: Is a Spitfire safer?

For me it was negligible. I bought the spitfire in a December 2016 - not long after launch- and rode it 12 months. Had 2 years foiling experience prior. I’ve never had a foil chase me down in a crash so can’t comment. Spitfire is more tolerant of front wing breaches. At the end of the day it was a f...

Re: Anyone know any details on the new upcoming foil from Flysurfer?

I’ve heard nothing - can you share a link ?

Would be interesting to see something with a lower AR than the s5

Re: Seat harness for Hydrofoiling. Which are you using and why?

Cheap Dakine seat (hand me down actually) with a dynabar stainless steel spreader bar. Gives plenty of support for boosting and lets me foil toeside easily. Also works on SB nicely too.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Mmm i can’t SUP to save myself but Gunnar (gmb) can. Maybe drop him a line. I’m pretty sure a leash is not a great idea when learning to sup foil.

Can you get behind a boat and learn to foil on flat water before riding a wave ?

Re: Wave Kiting – doubt about specific quiver vs. technique

Interesting thread. I am a frequent looper - in the waves I’m often in the wrong spot - chasing a section, outrunning whitewater , boxed in by a mate or stuck in the gully between close outs and the sand and occasionally need to accelerate dead downwind to get clear. 3-5 continuous loops does wonder...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

just got the same takuma clone as Jz perth....$438US plus plus. It looks solid. Haven't mounted it yet but stoked to give it a go. Also stoked that he listed it as value $50 for customs, which saved me another $100 or so in taxes, etc. He told me that the bulk purchase now down to 5, would have bee...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Rad that is the right company. There is no Takuma for $300 that was a carbon foil. You have to buy 10 Takumas do get the best price - I have just done this.
