Foil SUP / Re: Next Level Foiling with Small Tail
« on: October 13, 2019, 09:29:04 PM »
I've been finding more and more that the idea of having front foot forward on takeoff for the steep big stuff FEELS RIGHT (and feels more secure), but actually is turning out to be much worse.  What's been working really well for me is setting my feet in the right spots as i catch the wave, and then fully weighting my front foot if its steep or fast.  This way, as soon as I get to the bottom of the wave, I can have appropriate pitch control and don't slap down the nose of the board.  Since I adopted this, I've foiled out of a bunch of tricky spots that I know for sure I was blowing when I was using the front foot forward technique.

The new foils look great.  Hard to tell from the video, but they look burly and strong.  Two thumbs up for tuttle. 

Surfco SUP EZ plug.  I've installed several and they work great, lay flat and plenty strong.  need to prep the board with a little sandpaper just in the area where it will be installed.  On some boards that don't have a big enough flat spot, you can sand the plastic part to fit the contour of the board.

looks like a more shallow angled bottom bevel and thicker rails than what you made me a year and a half ago. Mine is ~25deg and this one looks more like ~15deg.  Any commentary on why the change? 

I saw the writeup on your website about tail geometry and I like the look of the tail on this one, I have the old step tail you were doing back then.   I might just have to get another one...

$150 KeNalu is a big bladed paddle, great for surfing with a powerful catch to get you in early. XTuf stiff blade, ergo handle.  79.5" from tip of blade to top of handle.
$100 Werner, probably about 85sqin blade.  The shaft is fairly stiff and has a slight ovalization that feels great in your hand.  There is a split in the blade, it hasn't gone soft.  82" from tip of blade to top of handle

You pay shipping or pickup in SF bay area

Nose was professionally rebuilt by my windsurf repair guy after the board broke a couple ribs on a particularly big day at OBSF.  Perfect repair and the board is still super light.  It paddles like a dog, but comes alive on the wave - slashing top turns and carving bottom turns.  I had so much fun on this board that I'd rather keep it but I only ride the foil anymore.  Naish day bag included, zipper works but the pulls broke off. I don't know how to ship a board, so local sale in the San Francisco bay area please.

This board has two very professional repairs.  Still super light and the repairs look good.  This board is so versatile that I'd rather keep it forever, except I don't think I'll ride anything other than a foil anymore.  I don't know how to ship a board, so local sale in the San Francisco bay area please.  The board bag is NOT included.

priced to sell!

$500 shipped - Maliko 160 foil, 24.5 tuttle mast, tail, covers.  I learned on this foil setup - works great and is the most stable of the GoFoil setups.   Well used, but nothing wrong with it.

$950 shipped - M200 and IWA wings, 24.5 tuttle mast, 420mm cut tail, covers.  This is a perfect setup to cover a wide range of conditions from big and hollow to ankle slappers.  The cut tail is quite an upgrade from the stock setup, but you can buy a stock tail fairly cheaply.  Well used, but nothing wrong with it.

For those of you waiting on baited breath for a ride report - I am sad (but not surprised) to report that the difference in drag is not noticeable for me.  The change in sound contributes to a psychological sense that the foil is riding smoothly and effortlessly. But I don't believe it is noticeably faster nor is pumping noticeably easier.  If I ever get a new foil setup, I'll still probably take the time to fair it with bondo because 1) it was easy to do 2) I like the change in sound 3) I rarely take apart my foil 4) every little bit helps
