Hello everybody. This is my first post! I did read a lot and learnt a lot and finally built my own kitefoilboard :D .
I am going to Hyeres (south of France) in one week. (4.4.-11.4.2015). It would be great to meat somebody down there who could try my foilboard. I had ones a go in horrible conditions and did'nt worked at all :( .

Thats how it Looks like.

Awesome !

It will definitely be able to work.

The trim is all about shimming the rear wing, or mowing the straps (IF, it is not spot on).

One could also ride it strapless at first, as this will show the strap positions right away, bearing in mind that you CAN have the trim a bit more off with straps and still ride okay, whereas strapless you ride in full balance most often.

Hope you find some to test it - important to know that it works, as then you know you can just go on practising till you got it :D

Dont get put off if some says it is not good - as it CAN be because they are used to something different.

If it rides, you are on the first mark, and it will :thumb:

Thanks Peter
I have about 1.5° of angle of attack at the rear wing.
I can change the position of the front straps easily. See Picture

If someone want to see more manufacturing pictures I have lots of them 8)

Just from the look it should fly just fine!
May I suggest going to this if you can make it, talk about a pool of knowledge in one place!

Roger's KBHF flies very well !!!

His build is a bit on the heavy side and the board is a little narrow but the HF is perfectly balanced on both sets of wings Roger has made. Even the straps were almost spot on !

Impressive for a first build without having ever ridden a KBHF ! Well done Roger !
