Yeah, I don't know how windsurfers can handle that chop.  Having never windsurfed, but have wakeboarded towed surfing in choppy waters, I hated chop!!! So hard on the body.  That's what makes foiling so great in my opinion, just gliding above chaos.  and tapping in when you want to.
I’m a 5’9” 65kg rider:

Boards:
   4'5.5" 33L Armstrong
   4’10” 37L FSM
   5'1" 74L FSM
   5’11” 100L FSM

Foils: Armstrong 1050, 1200, 1550, 2400
Wings: F-One Swing 3.5M and 5M

Nice Dwight, I have been curious about those Lift HA foils.  Which Axis foil does it ride most similar to?

The HA 200 is similar size to the Axis 1000. The HA 170 is close to the 900 in size. The HA250 is similar in size to the Axis 92.

The Lift pumps onto foil really easy and predictable. Almost idiot proof pumping. It inspires confidence, you can pump onto foil at will, in any wind. It does not have the typical for high aspect foils, trait of, pumping up, then dropping like a rock when you get the technique wrong.

The carving and jibing “feel” is Axis 900/1000 ish, and not Axis 1010 or 1150 ish, or GL ish.  So that appeals to me.

The ability to pump long distances, without wing power, is better than the 900/1000 and probably similar to the 1010 (guessing without a back to back test)

The mast has too much flex for SUP, but is good for winging. I’ll use them for winging only.

Stopped by the delta on my way back from Tahoe.  Man that place blows, awesome for winging and also might go crazy being in that kind of wind 24/7 for days upon days  :D

And this is Billy from f-one at Crissy a few weeks ago.  Seeing a big guy water start a 6m in sub 20 wind has me recalibrating:

As a former Windsurfer the waterstart makes total sense.  When I was out on my first real day I was trying to effectively waterstart day "1".  There was NOT enough lift to get me on the board.   

On a windsurfer you have the advantage of a mast that you can point straight up, giving the sail maximum vertical + wind exposure, then tuck the board under you feet and do a Hockey Stand.  With these rigs people are still schlogging slow and then pumping on the foil. 

--> There has to be some in-between.  PS - I will never figure this out from the shores of Connecticut.

PSS: I learned from my daughter Ruby to do a water start with this 3' Foil board behind a 5 hp boat.  I thought it impossible she said "Dad I can do it just like a wakeboard start."  When have you ever wakeboarded I asked?  She replied - "I learned it on Wii Sports."

Cool, the 6M Swing has a tremendous span too, would be easy to catch a tip. That video starts from the easy part though, he's already knee up. The previous 20 seconds are what I really need to analyze.

There was NOT enough lift to get me on the board.   



Therein lies the problem, if there's enough wind to easily waterstart, you've probably rigged too big though that may be the best way to learn the moves.

That Ghetto foil is awesome btw, was that a piece of driftwood? :)

Driftwood, High-End Trash & Gorilla Glue.  Here was the build thread.  I may have to dust this thing off and get it flying again.

I am not sure I could get up on the GL210 but the kids could.  Then you might have nearly indefinite pump ability:

What are we calling the jybe at :08 where he drops the wing behind his back and then guides it around the outside?  That is a really nice variation.

The Heiny Gybe! 

Benefit of that one is you get a good view of your downwind transition area.  No windows needed for that style gybe.  I need that one to avoid the crab pots that have consumed my local spot!
