Carbon Hydrofoil Repair

Postby juanpasala » Mon Oct 29, 2018 9:26 pm

Hi guys,

Well, last weekend i managed to get my Banga stabilizer tangled in my control lines about 3 meters above my head (quite spectacular crash, and I still havent managed to understand how the foil managed to get up there), long story short, i found myself with a crushed trailing edge on the hydrofoil stabilizer, and I was wondering if any of the guys here have any advise or recomendation on how to fix it.

Many thanks

any pictures of the damage?
You get very good at these repairs with practice, I have one of my stabilizers drying right now perched on top of my dining room radiator :wink:

There are some guys offering repair services. If you're on the east coast, I'd refer you to George Hradil of Delta Hydrofoil www.deltahydrofoil.com shoot them a message through their contact form.

If you're on the west coast, try Will Cyr of Cyr Designs, he repairs foils for people and does a great job, he's a naval architect by training so he's extremely detail oriented.
