Mounting a hydrofoil on split board

Postby darippah » Fri Feb 23, 2018 1:36 am

I plan to mount my ghost whisperer 111 with race wings to my 2015 nobile split carbon surfboard. I plan to use this setup for big jumps and aggressive riding.

I’m hoping someone smarter than me or with experience with this board to advise if The board will be able to handle the abuse of a hydrofoil ridden aggressively

Thanks In advance !

The Infinity Split has more flex than the Infinity Split foil. You could break your Infinity Split using it with a foil. To make this work, I asked someone to make a plate to better distribute the weight on the board.

You were wise to do so. My Split board snapped right at the front 2 screws connection point to the board :(
