This is how I extended mine.

cut the feet off the blue one. Cut the gray one in half, split the sides. Hose clamps and duct tape.

what's his preferred setup for wing ?

He was winging the HPS, short fuse and 420 tail when I rode with him. It looks like the same in this photo.

So beautiful I had to share. Evan sent this to me a few hours ago.

Welcome and looking forward to learning about the foiling in PR. Easy flight from Florida!

I'll switch when I feel I've mastered what I have.

Haha, not buying that.

I have a buddy, who rides what you ride. He declined to test the HPS when Evan was here because fast was not his thing. He only tested the BSS and decided he wanted those foils. Surfing is his thing.

He wanted to try my board last week, but my HPS 980 was bolted to it. He was forced to use it as is. He about crapped his pants. He’s all in on the HPS bandwagon now.

That wasn’t the point. Once a foiler starts squatting, the ability to control pitch is reduced. That’s all that I was trying to imply. Poorly I guess.

The efficiency at controlling the foil is not ideal. Bending the knees is the wrong approach. You want to be upright.

Kai Lenny talked about this in the early days of foiling. Stand up.

Hi all. I've been lurking here for a few months and learned a lot, great forum.

Does anyone have some tips on how to avoid forearm cramps? I never had issues with it winging in non-cold weather, but recently tried to wing a couple of times in about 7 Celsius (45F, which maybe isn't that cold for some people) and after 20 minutes could hardly hold the wing anymore. Not sure whether because of the gloves (only 2mm, loose fit) or the cold itself.

I can kite for hours with 3mm gloves and don't get cramps. The harness (which I don't use for winging yet) surely helps. But maybe holding a wing handle, and specially pumping also has a lot to do with it?

Have been stretching before and during the sessions (after wipe outs), eating potassium rich foods.. anything else to try?

Baggy arm wetsuit. Windsurf specific suits used to always have loose fitting arms. Tight sleeves fatigue your grip and cramp your forearms. Today you rarely see suits like this. Everyone has gone to thin, super flex arms. Baggy dry suit tops work well.

I know why it whistles. I bet you do too.

It whistles a little all the time, then it has weird moments of super loud whistling unlike anything from anybody. This makes me wonder if two things are going on. The more common whistle from the tailing edge. Then the big gap and bad fit at the front is making the super loud noise.

If Axis can make quiet wings, I want everyone to make quiet wings.

If they are made by MauiCNC, they should be perfect.

I’ll fix it. I just don’t have lots of spare time to fix it.

Rode the Kane tail (shim in) with the HPS980. With 6m in not so great wind. Very loose and surfy. But it whistles, sometimes deafening loud. Thought for a NY minute, I was king of the world hitting 20.6 mph. Then Jacky informed me she hit 21 mph on the 420 tail without shim. She kicked my ass.

You can see the changes between the v1 and v2 carbon masts in this photo.

Go for width. Leave the narrow California boards to California surfers. They surf glass. In NC you surf choppy crap.

I could ride forever without a harness. Was surprised this was so. Arms never got tired.  Eventually tendons in the elbow became inflamed. That forced me to try a harness to let the tendons heal.

Now with a harness, the legs burn out. Riding with a harness transfers loading to legs and allows me to handle more load in the wing. I ride with higher loading more often, because it’s fun.

Kane dimensions a little off. A good size gap at the front. Hope it doesn’t whistle.

have you measured the AoI for the KD tail?  Mine just arrived but I cant find my calipers...

No. I’ll let my instincts riding it, figure it out.
