Re: Visibility of low-volume strapless board

Yes, impossible to find your board when it sits "in" the water surface, and as there is usally a bit of small chop it gets out of sight, and colours dont work if a flat board :roll: I use a Rubber Duck - a hole in the bottom, a big washer or similar inside the duck, and then a screw through the deck...

Has anyone ever used a Flysurfer Peak with a foilboard? If so, I’d love to know about the experience, including how the Peak affects upwind performance.

Thanks,

John

Some has, make a search on the forum, I remember a couple of threads :naughty:

Re: Foilers vs Kiters proportion now

It may also a distribution thing. A lot more foils available in U.S. than Europe. I doubt it that there are a lot more foils available in the US. I also doubt that if there would be more foil brands available in the US it would make any difference on the number of hydrofoil riders. There are probab...

How small is too small?

Hi - regarding stabilizers, just want to hear experiences from others. I have stabilizers from 200 cm2 up to around 300. 300 is too big when experienced IMO, for all wings from 600 to the surf wings 1200 cm2, eventhough the big ones were "de facto standard" years ago. BUT, having used the super smal...

Re: Foilers vs Kiters proportion now

Very high number in my area out of all the kiters 25-30 that I have ridden with only 2 don’t foil and one of them is getting a foil so that makes 1 out of 30.. Amazing! For me it is impossible to say.... Personally I would say there are almost only foilers out :rollgrin: But this is not true - the ...

Re: hydrofoiling in "normal winds"

And have some newer kites 5,6,7,8,9 and also bigger for when sub 10 knots. Recently by chance got a 2011 brand new 5 m2 Takoon Soul kite ...

Re: Barsize for short arms ?

You can move the throw on the new bars from north, fone and others. Bring the cleat down. True :thumb: Also, barsize got nothing to do with this "problem" whatsoever. Get a bar where you can move the cleat, and preferably one with a small CL of course - problem solved. Doesnt matter if you use a sm...

Re: 6m soul for foiling

I've got a 5 m2 Soul - my very best kite for hydrofoiling in waves :thumb: Got it this summer, brand new :rollgrin: Just teasing as I believe you are talking about the Flysurfer Soul, and not the Takoon Soul from 2011 :rollgrin: http://www.kitefinder.com/image/view/220/220/reviews/takoon-soul.normal...

Re: Why do Foils Howl?

Please can someone who knows tell me the real reason some foils Howl? Because they are happy! :D Ha haa, yes they are happy :thumb: There can be many reasons, obviously it is oscillations in the water at a frequency we can hear. It is very often from the trailing edge, can be of ANY part of the foi...
