I'd like to ask you to add any existing kite foilboarding forum links please.
This is what I know or use so far:
http://kitefoil.forumactif.org
http://kitehydrofoil.com

Any national forums?

And this is my friend and mine new creation in Polish:
http://www.foilforum.pl

I doubt there are any national forums specifically to hydrofoils. There are still too few people using them, but I am sure that will change. Your Polish forums looks very nice! How many foilers are there in Poland if you had to guess?

In South Africa I know of two, and maybe three more people learning to ride. Talk about a small community.

Here in Denmark the "national forum" has been a facebook group. I believe that we will be more on foils than on raceboard in a near future. I have loved racing them but things go fast and it seams that raceboards are sooo last year. Only the one going for an Olympic campaign will continue. History repeating...

No foil crowds on the water either :wink:
There are around 10 foils and riders only. However there is rather big interest to try or buy it.
All top Polish racers want to learn it or are learning now.
I made a poll on the Polish kiteforum and results were like this:
4% owns a foil
27% wants to learn asap
44% would like to try
8% says that it looks great but don't want to try
16% admits that the thing is for freaks only

Thanks. As you see 50% of all posts are mine. I feel like some crazy activist :lol:
There are only 25 users registered on the Polish FF. Hope in a year will 10 times more.

What about Italian or US forums?

if there are any US forums, i've not found them yet. The US people are followers....no one using a foil in my area so likely there will never be any followers in my area. There is no active campaign or promotion to develop this side of the sport. Puerto Rico manufacturers the MHL lift, but their website is totally lacking and engineering details and they don't provide anything in their emails other than the price. They must be selling foils as fast as they can make them as they are not trying to encourage me to buy.
