Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

I came from Original Alien Air, I ride a Nobile Zen Splitboard foil when travelling , have ridden the two Crazy Fly pocket boards but have been riding a Groove Skate for a couple of months. I'm a big guy, 225lbs, riding strapless on a Moses 590/330 101cm. Board is awesome, freakishly light, the sco...

Re: Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

Yah the carbon fuselage makes a big difference with the liquid force foil set. Also the Impluse wings add a lot of float. But the best advice I can give is get a board with less volume so you can sink the edge. This will help you water launch with much less effort then the 20L+ boards which you rea...

Re: Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

Can also only recommend the Ketos foils, as they sit quite long "heeled over", all of them. Especially the "Surf" wing is amazing and even more floaty because of its size - they have had it for over a year now as a SUP wing, KF660-1200, but we are many using it as the perfect surf (kite) wing - so n...

Re: Initial direction of body dragging to retrieve board

It does not matter at all which side you "start" your body drag on :thumb: BUT, if you are experienced and you know without looking where your board is, starting in the direction you "fell" is the fastest of course, as you will lose (or at least not gain) ground whenever you "turn" bodydragging. If ...

Seriously, is there no Poll plugin for this forum?

There is, but in a seperate group where most will be anonymous, and not really needed in this "easy" poll :D

Re: first 360 hydrofoil from Marc blanc !

360? No.....it's called a dead man's turn! It's been done in buggy for years but on a hydrofoil it's something special. A lot more skills needed to do it while standing on an underwater plane. https://youtu.be/ZJC-fen0h8w True, it is called a deadmans turn in buggy yes. For kitefoilers though, I th...

Re: Small board for Spotz Tuna

Hmmm, I can not point at particular boards, but by far most boards/hydrofoils are like the Spotz, where you got your rear foot behind the mast and not over, if normal stance, so there should be some out there with sufficient distance :thumb: Take the Zeeko Pocket where the tracks are in front of the...

Re: Straps or strapless poll

For waves or freeride/freestyle fun, what do you ride ?
You HAVE to pick one even if you change occasionally -

One or two or three straps, or hook(s): Count 0
Strapless: Count 1

Straps or strapless poll

When reading so many posts about increased front foot pressure or reverse, especially regarding all our new "surf" wings, it made me wonder, do the majority ride with straps/hooks ??? Around here most do, also for wave/freeride, but sometimes the internet and other locations will give a different di...
