Re: Windfoiling in Mauritius

Thanks for the video and info. It looks like your skill level saved you some coral scraping! Its useful to know what spots are like from the point of view of foiling, and I am having to revisit places I have windsurfed with foiling eyes and many of them are fine for windsurfing but not good for foil...

The Starboard Race Pro has a 110cm 'mast' since 2018.

Re: When is a wetsuit too old?

Thanks- that fits my suspicion. Feels very wasteful/environmentally bad though! So what are people’s recommendation for winter wetsuits? I have stuck to oneill for ages as they fit me so easy to bu on line (whilst billabong seem weirdly narrow in the leg) but will probably have time over Christmas ...

Re: SUP Foil surfing

Benjamin Tillier wingfoiling with a 4m Duotone wing and 2000 sq cm foil quoting 10 to 12 knots. The board is a modified North kite race board (probably about 90 litres). The foil is a surf style foil, and the mounting point is further forward than the original deep tuttle box. The original box posit...

Re: SUP Foil surfing

Tyson Poor on the 96 litre 6' 8" JP SUP foil board. He is probably using the NP Glide M slim wing @ 1300 sq cm. https://www.instagram.com/p/B5TH5fXnzao/ The same board can also be used with a Duotone (or other) wing, so the choice of propulsion is up to the rider. In this video, the board used is 11...

Re: Windsurfing blind.

Wow. Fantastic! Nico doing the blindfolded trial is very interesting because it illustrates how complicated it is to have a system where the guide gives clear, unabiguous, efficient instructions that the blind person can take in very quickly and act on very quickly. Hopefully somewhere, someone has...

Re: Olympic Foiling

A feeder Series is not established for Olympic foiling, but it is possible that the Bic Techo293 program could be developed to fill that role. Bic already have the Bic Techno 130 windfoil, which is a bit more of an even compromise between being used with a foil or fin, so it seems that it could be i...
