Re: Foiling Nevin

first windfoil race in Brittany

(CV, looks like a lot of them ride pretty low in the water instead of flying with a lot of mast out. Just my $.02)

I want one sooo bad.

Re: Foiling Nevin

There are "trainer foils" that use much shorter masts. Apparently that's easier to use. Since the water in this video looked pretty flat, maybe there wasn't any advantage to using a long mast.

There is no off season.

Those "herbal, all natural" treatments aren't making your "mast" as big as you think; don't believe everything you read on the internet. Acute

Seriously though, looked up the Lokefoils (in the picture) and their mast is 85 cm. AHD is about 96 and Horue is 85 cm.

One thing better than owning a boat–– having a friend that owns a boat.

F4 foil mast is ~95cm

Sure about that? I've noticed Chris' hands have gotten bigger since he started foiling.

There is no off season.
