I love Maui and I love your ramblings about life on it! I do the farmer bedtime way to often.

General Discussion / Re: Should this site be renamed the foil zone?
« on: November 26, 2022, 08:19:46 AM »
I understand a non-foiler being frustrated here. I think that Seabreeze handled it differently by making foiling a separate forum page. But I like seeing the sup stuff mixed in with all the winging and foiling talk. The way I do this site is I have a bookmark on the foiling section but always just scroll right down to "recent posts" to see who is saying what. My guess is that's what most are doing. Its the fresh, relevant threads. I hardly ever go into specific sections. I credit(blame) Admin with turning me on to Axis. And here I am $7K later.... and frothing hard as ever! I still sup when I go to the ocean, but I foil there too. Still "standing up" and always in the Zone! Thanks Admin and all the frothy bretheren that click here 3 times/day for years.

probably less expensive to build one. There are a bunch of new downwind boards hitting the market lately. I imagine that if you wait 6 months, there will be a glut of second hand ones on craigslist. Mine is 7'6"x 20"x 4 3/4" 105L. It has breathed new excitement into shitty winter wind winging. I have also been trying to paddle it up in flatwater, which has been really fun and I almost have it on foil. If its just going to be for winging, it could probably be a little shorter like 6'5". The skinnier the better(to a point). The big span of the 1300 gives it ample lateral stability. If you go too wide like 26" you will probably lose some benefit of the fast hull.  It really doesn't feel like a long board when on foil because a lot of it is the skinny tail behind me. The 1300 feels like a good pairing. I am going to try using a small hand wing next time even if its light wind just to see what I can get away with.  It has been so fun having a new class of toy to play with.

I have been winging on the 1300 and 375p in 5-6mph with a kalama 7'6" displacement hull board. If you really want to unlock the lightest of wind, the long skinny, light board is the key. I way able to butt start it too!

I am super sad I missed this HM mast! What a deal!
If you sell another one like, I don't know say an 86, I would be stoked to buy it.

Nice work Jondrums! I have a sillyshort arriving today. I feel better somehow, when I can change something up for $275 instead of $700+. I like that you did it for nothing. I just hope you don't start missing your crazyshort.

I have kicked this idea around quite a bit. One thought which I havent done is the rocket box(on roof) drying rack. Set some type of rack inside to lay suit over. Here's the committing part. Drill vent holes in the front and rear  and a drainhole in bottom of box. Drive around while wetsuit cooks dry. Or just park and it will still cook. I usually just hang my suit on a hanger in back of my transit medium roof with a plastic bucket under.

« on: August 10, 2022, 06:32:14 PM »
I just started recently riding backwinded for prolonged periods. This is a really fun sensation. I am trying to get to the point where I can go upwind backwinged same as normal. Any backwinders out there that can help me get upwind? I saw some sickbirds in the Gorge going upwind backwinged. Thanks. Senditbrö!!!

I ride strapped. Even foot pressure takes a bit more tuning with straps. However, once dialed, strapped riding, for me, is way more radical than unstrapped, especially with the wider wings like 999/1099. I ride everything on crazyshort and 325. Not everyone may be ready for this set up but when you are, it is way easier to crank radical turns on big wings.

Holy Crap, the 1099 is so good.  I've been on the KDFoils 12" tail for the last two weeks in small glassy gutless surf.  This wing surfs so so so well when there is no power in the wave.  Of course, I'd rather be on a smaller foil, but when the waves are small this is the setup.  The setup is just a little more twitchy and less forgiving on the pump - but still pumps perfectly fine.  The surfing is just so much better and the downsides are barely a downgrade.

I alternated tails between KDFoils 12, 13.5 and 15 as well as Axis 350P tail (very similar to 13.5" KD).

The 15" with 1099 is a dog even though its a really great tail
The 13.5" and 350P ride fantastic and really make the foil super fun
The 12" is a game-changer

The 1099 continues to blow me away. I have been playing with a couple of things that dramatically improve the performance for winging. Crazy short/325P/82 old carbon(first time I have said that)
1. flying it just below the surface.
2. slow down
The combo of both of these brings this wing to life. The 1099 is a fast wing but the roll gets seriously locked in at speed so, turning is very limited. I have been taking it down to maybe 8-12 mph and all of a sudden I can rip radical turns full 180 degrees as if I am on a small surf wing. I feel like the wing is performing at its optimal speed.

hell yes! best one yet. All hail Adrian the Wizard!!! Mahalo Robert. Nice work, as usual. Go Axis!!!!

+1 on the presesh and music.
The Dart is the best for powered carves down and upwind like you are talking about. The low aspect grunt in that wing gives me shiteloads of torque that can go full blast with a sheet in. I like to do the s carves and then on the downwind leg, just drag a wingtip to backwind and  initiate a carving 3. Speaking of backwinding, lately I have been playing with the Starfish. This is the most ridiculous thing I have done with my wing but its sooo fun. Everyone, please try a starfish next time you are out. You will laugh your ass off all the way across the water. If you havent heard of it, it's just point straight downwind and put your wing on your back, between you and the wind. The fun starts when you practice it on the beach(during presesh).
Send it!!!
