Anyone flown a Kings Foil?
« on: August 22, 2018, 06:23:33 PM »
I see Dave at San-o all the time. Super nice guy. Iím interested in purchasing one of his foils. Have any of you flown one?  They looks awesome.

Dave is a super great guy and a hell of an engineer. From everything I've seen his foils are bleeding edge, but they probably won't be commercially successful unless he manages to stop experimenting and settle on a design, warts and all.  Not likely to happen-- a perfectionist. I will sooner or later have one of his foils if he'll make one big enough for me.

Iíve been riding a Kingís foil on the river and behind a boat (Attached to a Liquid Force tbar and fuselage). Iíve also ridden his set up on the ocean at Sanoís. The set up is awesome and glides well!! Heck, I was able to ride and foil the first ocean wave that I attempted! Heís currently getting a whole batch made, so give him a call and see whatís up!!

Newps has one.
He said he hasn't tried it in a while and I haven't seen him around in a while...
