Weight problem

How important do you find the weight of the board for hydrofoils? Remeber on course boards we used to say, that one kg on the board was equal 10 kg on the pilot. Does this go for hydrofoil boards too? I just got the Taaroa "Full carbon" board, but I find it really heavy. 4,5 kg without straps. I thi...

Re: Sudden deep ventilation ?

I am no expert in design at all, but I think the problem is stifness - or rather lack of stifness in the foil.

Re: controlling roll

I had the same thing the first few sessions. It's pretty sketchy because as the board rolls to leeward, you are leaning on your heels to stop it and you fall back onto the foil. Even worse is when the board is rolling to windward you put weight on your toes to stop it, sending you face first into t...
