Re: Opinion on lessons

I have 1 foot hook and the mast is positioned far back. I'm launching at rental house in Salvo north of Avon. 150$ Does seem steep. It appears to be the going rate at Real and Kitty Hawk kites. Getting the right instructor would be key. I will see what the next few sessions brings. I would like to g...

Re: Opinion on lessons

Thanks guys. As for falling. My total time with foil in water is closer to 30 minutes than an hour. So who knows why probably pure incompetence at this stage. Wind looks good for next week or so. I will just go at it. I already have a shin scar so out come the shinn pads.
Cheers thanks for the tips.

Opinion on lessons

A little background. I am a fairly competent tt rider who just bought a foil. I tried it out for an hour today. I was able to water start fairly easily by the end of the session. Staying on the board not so good. I am in Hatteras and using a happy foil board and short mast and the original foil fish...

Re: Noob mistake: setup stabilizer wing below fuselage instead of above (fin/stab reversed)

Glad you sorted that out.
Were you able to find somewhere to foil by your rental in salvo? Going Friday can't wait.

Re: lost slingshot glide board in Cap Hatteras

Heading down in a week. If you get a lead on it let me know. I could bring it back. I work for AC so may even help with delivery.
Good luck.

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

I have a line on a great deal for a happy foil. I have been offered the original LF wings to complete the package for not much more. As a complete foil beginner I figure I can change the wings as I progress. Question is is it worth it to start or should I just use the happy foil wings.
cheers.

Re: Ocean Roadeo Flight 10m good kite?

I own the 10m 12m and 17m flites. I ride with TT and sector in all conditions.They have an easy relaunch and I have used the 10 in 30kt winds. I find it a very fast and responsive kite without issue. I also plan on trying them with a foil next week.
Go for it. Good deal.

I am heading to Hatteras in a couple weeks. Hopefully it will be windy for the two weeks we will be there. If not looking for alternative fun. Has anyone had success SUP downwind with a kite? Is it worth the bother? I figure a slow kite down, paddle back type thing. Bring the kids and air out the 17...
