Submechanophobia

Submechanophobia, the fear of fully or partially submerged man-made objects, from sunken ships and propellers to sculptures and buildings.

Re: Submechanophobia

Personally, I've developed a phobia to crab traps. I think it's properly called a Cancrorum-captionem phobia according to google translate.

I would advice avoiding them while foiling if possible. Water is still dripping out of my board. Sad

Usually do but in this case hidden by the sail and longboarder I was sailing above only to be discovered halfway through the jibe. The black spray paint on it didn't help. Well, at least John Jordan had a good laugh...

Re: Submechanophobia

Blaming others is always a great defense. When foiling in any form perhaps the forward tip of the fuselage would be a good position for the GoPro with direct feed to the pilot

At Kelly Park on Sunday 6/6/21 there were two wingfoilers scooping up heavy grass/weeds that made me think of mid 19th century Kansas sodbusters and yet they were still smiling when they came ashore

Hey Pat

How’s the wind in Late July early August there?
Get any decent thermals?

Re: Submechanophobia

I am not ready for a semi windless summer on Lanier.
Starting to itch for a road trip to someplace with at least a seabreeze.
Maybe can convince some of the Atlanta and Augusta group to go.

Looking at the video - maybe over the causeway from Kelly Park near the circular loop to the cruise ships. Look at 1:45-6. We need someone from CSI:Cocoa Beach to ENHANCE, ENHANCE and pick out the street signs reflected in the car windshields.

From his post on seabreeze

Quote:
Kelly Park West is probably the most well known on the Banana River so if you drive east on the 528 causeway towards Cape Canaveral then Jacques Beach is right off the main road and has a small sandy beach.

I have foiled there twice and its down in my books as one of the best spots I have foiled for practicing tricks as the wind is super consistent there.

He's just moved there so his terminology may be different than those of us who've been there more over the years. Originally an Englishman living in TX.

And this part that should be like an arrow through Langdon's achy foiling heart:

Quote:
I cannot tell you how much nicer a smooth consistent "sea breeze" is over 5 gusting 25 rollercoaster wind that you get inland on the fresh stuff, coastal winds are awesome.

Re: Submechanophobia

I hope we get some flight time Friday....

The I99 has proven it can fly thru all kinds of wind and surface conditions but it sure would be nice to have some 13g14 with waves that are NOT 1 foot apart and coming from all directions.
