Re: New board shapes

I had no purpose with my post of the Carafino shape, just thought it was funny that he had those ideas too. I did not like the idea of the shape when he posted it, and still dont. But I have not tried it so impossible to say. Maybe it works. But if you look at the moth, they tend to torpedo when the...

Re: New board shapes

Hate to say it, but once again Carafino was first...not sure I will like to ride that kind of design though?

Re: sword installation

Note that you tend to place your feet different when riding strapless and riding straped. When riding straped, you can lock and load the board in a way that is not possible when riding strapless. On the sword1 I started with the screws of the plate right in the middle under my rear foot, and ajusted...

Re: Foil Covers

I use a bag made for opti parts. Then just cut a hole so wings can come out. The wings I cover with fin covers for windsurf fins.

Re: Liquid Force fun foil

The LF foil fish is a high performance free riding hydro foil. Sounds good! I just sold my Sword1 (for 1600€ incl. board) which has been a fun hydrofoil for freeride, and is also a great beginner foil due to high stability at all speeds. I wanted to go for the Sword2 as I am seeking more performanc...

Re: Liquid Force fun foil

Easy guys. I am now on my foil no. 5 and must admit, nothing beats the french designs. But the LF foil is a "fun foil", and we should not care about the design as it is a low performance foil.

Re: smaller kites with a foil

Hmm...I use the same size kite on my foil, tt and surfboard. So I would say no to a one-size-kite quiver. (Unless you want to limit yourself). Therefore I use kites from 6-18 in size.
