Foil SUP / Re: Manta Foil Plate to Tuttle Adapter
« on: November 16, 2019, 04:34:33 PM »
Looks to me like the set screw is just stopping the barrel nut from sliding left or right out of its hole. It cant be to stop the tuttle bolt from backing out as it would be innaccesable once in the board.
Looks like a nicely machined fitting though, I hope all goes well.

Foil SUP / Re: Mast cracks

I would scallop out the surface with a grinder and probably get rid of all the paint in that area to see how deep the damage goes and then lay a combination of unis and double bias carbon in there and also over the whole chord of the mast.
As DW said the axis cabon mast is super fat up there so feel free to keep adding cloth and fatten it up.

Foil SUP / Re: Anyone play with 3d printing rear wings?
« on: November 01, 2019, 02:32:43 PM »
3d printing is the perfect tool for producing prototype wings.
Here is a photo of two tail wings I printed on our schools 3d printer, the high aspect wing has a layer of 200g carbon unis and a layer of double bias e glass on each side and it has held up mint. Have tested it out and cannot feel any flex while riding.
After we discovered that we could print back wings we switched the cnc operation to a 3d printer setup and we have now printed a front wing in 4 sections with a 500x500x500 build volume printer.

Foil SUP / Re: Foil Setup Questions
« on: July 24, 2019, 05:46:04 PM »
I weigh the same as you and run an axis setup with 750mm mast, 920 or 820 wing and 400 back wing.
gofoil equivelant is probably 29,5 mast, Iwa and Kai back wing?

I spent $1200 nzd on building a cnc big enough to cut wings, amazing tool and the accuracy is just incredible, about to sell it off to pay for a bigger one  ::) , can't quite do a big wing in one piece.

Has anyone got any info on the dims of the new GL GoFoil wings? Have been inspired to start laminating a plywood high aspect wing to try and fit onto my Gong fuse. The blank is 110cm x 20cm. The GL wings look very flat from the pictures I have seen. Would like to get a better idea of the wings dims including the angle of attack? Everything so far has been eyeballed!
Thanks in advance :)


My next project is a wing like these new high aspect ones. I'm going for a metre span with a chord of 160mm using an NACA 4416 profile, I considered a thinner profile but since its allready so much smaller in the chord it will only be 26mm thick which is allready much thinner than most wings. I'm going with 2 degrees AOA with washout of 2 degrees over the span so that the tips are at 0 degrees.


Looks very promising Kiwi, does it fit on the Axis fuselage?

Sure does

Heres the plan for my next board, sure it takes away the ease of mast position change but tuttle cant move either, there could be large adjustment if u put another set 25-50mm behind or in front etc..

Been a while since ive posted, plenty of shit has happened
The original foil has been put on hold due to my disinterest in heavy, ugly foil shapes
After discovering I had been missing out on a whole lot of lift in my original wings I decided to start fresh and got to work on the wing below which has a span of 800mm and a max chord of 200mm. My new design consisted of a whole lot of weight reduction in the form of a cedar carbon mast and glass tube fuz with wings still reasonably heavy until I get a hold of some more cedar. I designed my wing fuz join similar to axis and started cutting the new wing. After cutting the three parts (two wing tips and the main section) I realised I could have just designed it to be interchangeable with all the axis gear and I wouldn't have to wait until building an entire foil from the ground up to be able to use this new wing, my friend owns a few axis setups and was/is willing to let me use them to test my wing. After this realization I spent the next two weeks running around like a headless chicken trying to get it finished in time for the school holidays so I could test it in the swell and dont worry I did.

In between my last post and now I also built a prone foil board out of an old windsurfer which has been good apart from the fact is weighs a kilo more after a session than what it began at. So I also patched that up and gave it a new coat of paint before the holidays too, plan is to build a fresh one from scratch and make it indestructible over the next year.

During the holidays the swell was pretty average and was about 0.3m of windy blown out shit with no gut behind it whatsoever, probably perfect for sup foiling but I need some more power in the wave for my little wing on my prone board. The river creek thing where we stayed over the holidays was perfect for pumping off with the axis 1020 wing.



Next in the works is the above stated prone foil board, probably around 5 foot 40 litres and a high aspect pump wing/downwind because everyone seems to be heading towards high aspect.

Foil SUP / Re: flat water start on a hand made foil
« on: March 02, 2019, 11:15:51 PM »
Hold the presses! We may have a solution for my needs. Apparently Alex is already onto the idea of a higher aspect wing for my go foil. Not sure if they are in production yet. Looks mighty similar to the signature that I like. The downside is itís probably more than $50 💰

I'm liking the look of that one, my next wing after the current one is definitely a high aspect one. Those signature albatross foils rip. I also think its the same reason the horue foils have a lot of pump in them although ive never seen anyone apart from the owner ride one in a video

Not technically a 3d file but thought it would be a handy place to leave this.

Feel free to add to it.

After building two front wings, 3 tail wings and a rudder I have finally found the issue I was talking about with weirdness in fusion 360. Using loft instead of sweep.
By using loft I was taking the profiles to a point which meant that I was losing out on shape and they profile was basically symmetrical at halfway between the tip and the root.
You can see in the photo the amount of volume the wing is missing out on.

Ah well
