Foil SUP / Easiest Axis foil to paddle up in flat water?
« on: October 24, 2021, 06:05:56 AM »
So what is the best Axis foil to paddle up in flat water for a 85 kg (190  lbs) rider?

I tried the 1150 (1713cm2 projected) but no success, will the BSC 1120 (2007cm2 projected) be easier to get up ?

And what fuse length and rear?  Should I get one of the older rears like the 440 or even the 500?

Foil SUP / Foot strap position for Foil supping
« on: February 29, 2020, 11:51:55 PM »
I am having a new board made  and have to decide where the footstrap inserts will be.
I will also be winging with the board and have already made up my mind where the footstraps have to be for that:
V-setup in front and and on the centerline in the back:,35785.0.html

But should I get more inserts for sup-foiling to get my feet more on or even over the centerline of the board?

I have a Jimmy Lewis 5'11 Flying V , the footstap position is ok for foiling with a paddle but not for winging.
I am goofy but and I have my front feet in the footstrap all the time when I am using a paddle, but when I am winging I switch my feet and I have to ride without straps.

I could go for footstrap inserts on the centerline of the board , ok for the back straps but perhaps it would be better to have two foot straps in front in a V formation?? And what angle should the V be?

Or will that put my feet too much on the heelside of the board?

How much wind do you need to go upwind when the wind drops when you are on a 5m2 Duotone?

Especially important if the wind is offshore....

Foil SUP / KeNalu Mana 90 or Ho’oloa 95 for foiling
« on: July 25, 2019, 08:03:26 AM »
I use a KeNalu Maliko 95 since for 5 years now , cut it to -2 inches

I want to try going a bit longer for foiling so have to get another paddle.

I was thinking of  a KeNalu  Mana 90 or  Ho’oloa 95.

Which one is the best choice for foiling and how short or long should I cut my paddle for foiling?

Gear Talk / Starboard 2013
« on: November 01, 2012, 10:03:08 AM »
I was interested in the 2013 Starboard PRO 8'5

I found the 2013 Catalog :

The new version is only 106 litres!

The new 7'11 and the Widepoint 7'8 are both 120 litres , perhaps better for a my 85 kg + winterwetsuit.

Gear Talk / Starboard PR Silver AST Deckpad
« on: June 04, 2011, 02:50:34 AM »
My Starboard Pocket Rocket Silver AST's Deckpad is very effective in the middle (4mm 3/4 DECK PAD square-groove traction EVA standing area) where I stand when I am paddling in parallel stance but in front and in the back (2mm EVA fore and aft of standing area) it is just flat and I already slipped a few times..

Should I just put wax on the pad or is there another way to make it less slippery?

Gear Talk / Quad fin setup Angulo Surfa 9'0"
« on: April 15, 2011, 01:03:46 AM »
My latest purchase

Length: 9' 0"
Nose: 23”
MId: 31 3/4”
Tail: 19 1/2”
Thickness: 4”
Volume: 140
Weight: 18 lbs
The board has futures fins boxes
I want to try the board as a quad.

Just like my Fusion:

The Fusion is based in South Africa,the Angulo will be used in the Netherlands:choppy,slow waves that are under 2 meters,,under 1 meter 90% of the time..

The board comes with a pair of asym 4"fronts, and a pair of asym 3,5"rears.
This seems to be quite small for a wide board like the surfa.

Because  I forgot to take the 4"0 fronts at the shop I started with the 5,4" Gerry Lopes fronts and the 3,5" rears

I already had a good time on my new board considering the crappy conditions.

Does any body have some advice on quad fins for this board so that I will be ready for better conditions?

Do I need symmetrical or asymmetrical rears and what size should they be?

And what size fronts should I use?

I have a Coreban Fusion 9'0"x29,5" and would like to try it as a quad fin.
What size fins would be a good startingpoint?
I have four 3,5" fins but that seems a bit to small.
My weight is 85 kg (185lbs).
