Re: better pivot or draft 14m

Jesus Christ! It is so clear that some of the answers are written by people who have not tried the two kites on a hydrofoil. I have tried both the pivot and the draft on a foil, and the Draft is much better as it goes further forward in the window and therefore gives you more foreward speed. Also fo...

Re: What is the big draw to Foils ?

The other plus side is, that if you got family and other obligations - you can now ride EVERY day if you want, meaning, you can ride on the days you have the time for it, and you dont have to be a PITA for everybody else, because they never know if you can come to planned events or not... And if yo...

Re: flysurfer Sonic FR available

I believe if the Sonic had won in La Ventana, nobody will mention the color ;) . But it is tested against the Chrono1 and Elf Joker5. The big quetion is how it will compare with R1 and Joker6 ? Will be interesting to follow.

Re: Why Cant I find a Sword 2 review?

You will be happy with your choice Bill. It is a very nice foil. My personal speed record on the Sword2 is 39 mph (34 knots/ 64 kmh) and I have not felt the "speed wall" either ;) But opposite you, I feel that the board of the Sword could have been better. (lighter and a better rail shape). But I li...

Re: Why Cant I find a Sword 2 review?

I have tried both Sword2 and Spotz2 (with the curved wings). Both really good foils, and as CG mention the result of La Ventana shows that they are both very competitative. They look very different and feels very different. So a choice would be of personal preference. The Sword have a more smooth gl...

Re: Kite Foil Gold Cup Mexico

I had heard rumblings that the sword 2 couldn't compete with spotz 2, but 2 different kites and two different foils tied for first is good to see :thumb: Yes, this indicates that the eqipment for both foils and kites are offcourse important, and spotz2 and sword2 are at the top of the game - but it...

Re: Pro Box, F box, Tuttle box, plate mount 90mm Explained ?

when you move your foil forward or backward you must at the same time change your stab angle. otherwise the balance will be different. in short: forward foil with min stab angle or zero angle = less drag and more unstable backward foil with more stab angle (typically 2-4 degrees) = lower top speed ...

Can be used with Pro Box adapter, Tuttle Box adapter or 90 mm Plate Mount.
Will changing the position of the plate (forward/bacward) have the same effect as changing the bangle of the backwing (up/down) ?
