That was a theory KDMaui talked about on "the progression project" a year or so ago. It's a nice way to find a starting point. He has since clarified that point. You can start there, then if you're digging rails in turns, you move the mast FORWARD towards the NOSE for more lift. If you're getting launched off the board and can't keep the foil in the water, you move the mast BACKWARDS towards the TAIL for less lift.

I typed that up to fast and had it completely backwards. Sorry about that. Couldn't edit old post.

Let's do it! Couple guys from Hawaii are saying it's the easiest downwind run they've done. From Malibu to Sunset might be hard with the wind direction.

These guys are currently racing to see who can make it to the Santa Monica Pier first haha.

Just to prove the point that the prone guys weren't surfing Topanga, so no need for angry messages please.  :)

That was the industry guys and Los Angeles foil club guys after they had a foil expo at sunset. The prone guys werenít surfing at topanga donít worry. They were doing prone downwinders to past sunset. I talked to one of the wing guys and he said he freaked out because heís way outside winging and then a prone guy came up next to him. It was like looking out the window of a plane and seeing someone sitting in the wing haha.

Everyone get ready for half price Ensis wings on The Zone.

So do we pm him now or do we just furiously refresh? Or does he throw one in the box when he ships you a board like a Willy wonka golden ticket?

Skyrama hit 31mph in the surf. New armstrong 1125. It was in a story  think, maybe it's still on his page.

Project cedrus uses a softer material for the front and rear of the mast. I hope to get that mast in the water today or tomorrow.

I put the AXIS 75cm aluminum mast with doodad and plate mount, next to the AXIS 76cm carbon mast. The carbon mast was ever so slightly shorter. I was confused.

A 75cm carbon unifoil mast was ever so slightly taller than both AXIS masts. My 75cm project cedrus mast with plate mount and a lift adapter is taller yet. That one measures 80.5cm by my tape measure.

Hahaha. I may not understand any of the math or how things work. I do know that learned alone 3 years ago in beach break that I now refuse to even look at when I have my foil. I learned the hardest way possible I think, but I did learn. 😀
