New foilsled proto

Postby Henry » Wed Feb 26, 2003 7:46 pm

With the risk of earning another place in the "get a life" section of KBM:

my proto foilsled for building a 10m^2 projected version for kitesurf.

This foilsled has about the same size & power as the S-Arc 460.

Have fun, Henry

Tnx for the positive comments :-)

It's one of the nice things about builing your own equipment :-)

Have fun, Henry

Henry - great job! I have both the F-ARC's and your's looks at least as good.

The only thing PL has over your's is that he put his name in REAL BIG LETTERS on it so everyone would know how famous he is. You can make him - appear - a little more humble with black sail tape to fill in some of the letters. His name becomes code.

I didn't see any spars on the tips.. How are you going to hold shape?

Is this a kite for two surfers? I notice the multiple lines...

Good for you.
