Re: 4in1 sup/windfoil/surfoil/windsurf

What would I give to get out on waves as nice as the ones in the video while trying to get to grips with the SUP Foil :D

Re: 2018 JP 135 Hydrofoil & Slingshot Foil Combo?

Another Nairn session last night in very little wind on the JP/Infinity 84 and Heckler 7.5m sail. Can't have been more than 10 kts probably about 7 or 8. Not foiling all the time but could stay up if I got up in a slight gust/much pumping and could glide OK but not head upwind. Got the foil back in ...

Re: Price comparison?

My Hypernut isn’t heavy in Starlite construction but to be fair the carbon SUPs are a lot more expensive and probably similar to decent windsurfers.

Re: new Sail planning - thoughts / ideas

I am enjoying the forum but have noticed that all anyone talks about are sails below 6m sizes and there is a lot of emphasis on wave sailing. Not a problem with wave sailing, wish I could do more of it but especially in the summer my 94kg sorry carcass gets dragged about much more effectively by 6.7...

Re: Rigging old Tushingham Rock

:lol: Telling other people how to rig their sails is one of the great pleasures of a windsurfers life right? :lol: Seriously though, yes, as above, also my experience, loads of downhaul on Tushingham kit, makes it handle great. Good to see older but sound kit in good use, and its what I can afford 8-)

Re: Rigging old Tushingham Rock

It may also be that the sail was originally designed around an SDM and you say you are using an RDM. Not sure what year that is. This will almost certainly mean that the recommended luff length will be out by a few CM. So I would go with the other comments. A little less downhaul and maybe almost no...

Re: Price comparison?

Good question.
No idea except to say the 4-1 sells in the SUP market where it has to compete with other manufacturers SUP boards rather than windsurf boards.
There are lots of dedicated foil boards that are also lower priced than windsurfing boards.
Maybe it’s not hard to shape a barn door :D

Re: SUP Foil surfing

Very interested in how you find the wing when you get it? Surfed Lossiemouth on Saturday with the 'Nut and Slingshot Infinity 84. Well when I say surfed..... Its much harder to paddle into waves with the anchor, sorry foil on the back and I guess the timing is all different to SUP surfing naturally....

SUP Foil surfing

Am I allowed to start a thread on SUP surf foiling?
Using the Starboard Hypernut 4-1 which is also used for windfoiling so I guess it’s sort of a sailboard :D
