That's what is being done in my wife's high school robotics class. Can she save you a seat next time you are in North San Diego County area?

The City of San Clemente is different from the State Park - The article will says the city will ban bikes from the City trail along the beach & some other city trails.
Beach Trail walkers have always been angry about bikes on the beach trail since it was built. The pavement to Lowers & Trestles is in the State Park, not controlled by the city. So E- bike on brother!

Try Samson, AmSteel-Blue Rope is a Dyneema HMPE fiber in a 12-Strand Single Braid a 18" diameter breaking strength is 2,300 lbs - it is used on boats and UV resistant and more cut resistant than nylon. I have it as the leash rope loop to my boards.
Also make sure to round the edges on the factory plugs to get rid of the sharp edges.
I found Dakine has a big wave leash 7/16"x 12' with a  2year warranty https://www.dakine.com/products/peahi-12-7-16-surf-leash-w-clip - for the less handy foiler

I guess to rephrase - are their known problems with the Bahne Box design or construction? Is it a Toyota, not the Lamborghini of the foil box box world.

The Shape Shack / Jumbo Foil Mount Boxes

Hi,
I am helping to fix a SUP FOIL board. We wanted to install the new longer track boxes.
I have two choices
1. 15" long  Bahne box for $18.00 each https://fiberglasssource.com/collections/long-board-boxes/products/bahne-longboard-fin-box-15-black
or
Chinook's new 40.5 cm = 16" long box for $32.00 each they offer a 10" box for $18.90 so I guess the $32 is for one box.
https://chinooksailing.com/collections/board-building-part-accessories/products/foil-box

I was planning on the "DW" install method of adding foam and a carbon fiber wrap so the boxes would extend to the deck of the board, like a tuttle box installation. I was thinking of 2 layers of carbon for the box wrap. Would it help to add a innegra layer on the box wrap?
Is the Bahne box a quality box? I understand the chinook is the best box but wow!! $$$$

Prone Foiling, Surf foiling, Pump Foiling / Re: Max volume for prone
« on: October 14, 2021, 07:53:20 AM »
Hi,
You could use the large board to learn the catch the wave, pop up and fly - that pop up & fly part is what sup foiling is missing. But a true prone board will be much lighter and fly different. 
Can't hurt to try.

Technique / Re: Prone paddling out over breaking waves
« on: September 28, 2021, 07:22:40 PM »
I was taught at Sano to stay on your feet paddling at the whitewash - then at the last second kick the board at the whitewash so it goes up and over, with you landing in the flat green water on your back as you do a flip underwater & under the whitewash. If it works correct the board goes over the whitewash and you go under (doing a summersault) popping up on backside of the wave energy.
If I tried to laydown into that - it would be bad

Hi,
I looks like you will score- we are in for a good south swell. check surfline or https://wavecast.com/socal/ have a detailed forecast. So head high + Mon & Tuesday. A quick drive north is Malibu - a great south swell spot, you can experience the LA Crowd. With that swell in the water it should be easy to find waves. I used to surf Topanga canyon back in the day, I no long live near by. Others can give better up to date info.

Califoilia - it seems like you are making the case for an anglefoil on a small board --https://www.standupzone.com/forum/index.php/topic,33902.15.html -
or as option #2 Perhaps you need to ride with a rear & front strap to add that you can pull up on your rear foot

Foil SUP / Re: Naish S26 Hover for SUP foiling?
« on: August 30, 2021, 07:14:38 AM »
I SUP FOil last years model Naish S25 95 liter, 5'7" it works good. It paddles different than a 8' SUP but, that is to be expected.
