Asking $610.  V1 board.  Overall good used condition.  Did have one small superficial surface crack repaired and has another that needs some epoxy and sanding.

Located in Hood River.  Pictures available.

We are trying to decide when to head up this year.  Seeking input on when the winds become reasonably consistent without the water being prohibitively cold.  Maybe mid May?  Thanks

Foil SUP / First wave!!!
« on: December 22, 2020, 09:41:25 AM »
Caught my first wave.  Rode that one footer straight into the beach.  :)  So excited!!!  First session with an Axis 1150.  One prior attempt with an Armstrong 2400.  The Axis definitely paddles faster.

I continue to be confused about the utility of the double concave bottom

Foil SUP / Paddling a short board straight
« on: October 10, 2020, 07:34:06 AM »
I am having trouble paddling straight.  I have seen videos demonstrating the "J" stroke but it doesn't look like that is what Dave is doing on this video.  How is he paddling straight?

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / wind vs current
« on: October 07, 2020, 04:14:55 AM »
For some reason, I am confused about this.

For kitesurfing, the conventional thinking has been that when the wind and current are in opposite directions, you get more effective "wind power".  Is that still true with a foil?

If I am foiling upwind with a wing or a kite, won't a current traveling WITH the wind give my foil more lift?

For those who have wings with multiple handles,  do you actually use them often or mostly just use 2 of your favorites?  I only know the Fone so I always use the same 2 handles but sometimes when I am super overpowered on toeside,  I think a more forward placed front handle might be useful. 

I don’t want to mess with a boom.

Not sure who this is but pretty detailed information including dimensions, weights and subjective ratings on power, handling, etc of 10 wings in the 4 meter range.

When I am winging across the river and I hear a windsurfer approaching me from behind (traveling faster and in a nonparallel direction), I hold my course and speed until they are past me.  Yesterday, two of them looked back with very unfriendly stares as they went by and I had one buzz me in an aggressive manner.  Anything to do differently or is this just part of sharing common space?

I am all for doing the right thing but am not going to be intimidated into changing my behavior if I am not doing anything wrong.

Classifieds / Naish S25 3.6 meter used once, in Hood River
« on: July 23, 2020, 07:09:49 AM »
Used exactly once, in fresh water.  No damage or repairs.  Available for inspection in HR.  Our family just has too much overlap in wings.  Asking $540.

Used my Swing 3.5 today in winds averaging low 20s with gusts into the upper 20s (mph).  Great session with lots of swell riding but mostly maxed out on the 3.5.   I need something smaller for windier days.  There are no FOne 2.8s available for a while as far as I know.  I am attracted to the Cloud wings but the 3 is not available and I think the gap to the 2.2 is too large.  What to do?  Any other good options? We have some big winds coming up.  Definitely a first world problem. Thanks

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Armstrong HS 1850
« on: July 11, 2020, 07:56:30 AM »
Newest and largest of the HS foils.  Interestingly, almost identical in span and area to the Axis 920.  I find myself struggling in avg 15-16 conditions with my CF 1600 as my wife has our 2400.  Mostly due to a skill/experience deficit but hoping the 1850 will help.  We are NOT going to own two 2400s  :).  Any other Armstrong users think the gap between the CF 2400 and 1600 is too large?
