Re: Do I bother to get a 60cm mast?

I would say definitely get a 60cm Mast I have one for my Liquid Force foil. Ontop of being able to use it in shallower water it is alot easier and safer than a full length mast. You can also breach without getting wiped out.

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

I would imagine SupaEz is foiling somewhere on the Florida Coast. He probably retired after giving Epic Kites $1000s of free internet publicity :)

Re: Shinn P Foil Beginner Observations

Did you use the full length mast on the LF Foil? I have found the 60cm is alot easier.

Re: A caes for full face?

I only wonder how long they will stand up to salt H20? I also have seen ice hockey helmets with minimal bars that look like they will do the trick. Might start looking into downhill mountain bike ones with cage as well! R H Saw my good hurt friend again today, we have MANY, MANY, started KBHF 2009 ...

Easy - Ozone Nutshell paragliding helmet with optional chinguard. Pretty much exactly the answer for your issue I would have thought? Ozone helmet.jpeg Says on the Ozone website that its not designed for water use though. Telling you guys....a full face shield in the water is nothing but a major an...

Re: A caes for full face?

In this video showing Richard Branson and Barack Obama kitesurfing, Branson is wearing a helmet with something protecting his face. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vqhw8kxVd2o Anybody know what make this helmet is? Might well be a white water kayak helmet. https://www.escape-watersports.co.uk/equip...

Depending on conditions I sometimes wear this:

Might be overkill but makes me feel invulnerable. Pretty lightweight feels like a Gath helmet

Re: LF Rocket Foil mount position

I use 2 foot hooks (front and back) so my feet are always in the same position. I put the foil right at the back and I use the forward back hole positions so my back foot is over the front of the mast. I find it easier if it takes effort to foil up so you dont dolphin as much.

Re: What are your Worst Accidents Hydrofoiling?

FWIW I spent all summer on a 50cm mast (labeled at 45cm, but 50cm actual) and 10/6m Airush DNA's that my daughter happily loaned me (see, I knew there would be payback for those 4 years of college expenses! :remybussi:). My riding spot is too shallow for my 90cm and I had a 70cm mast backordered al...
