Roman, It looks sweet!!!!, Very well built, and I canít wait to try it out. I am preparing and getting a ďwhite helmetĒ as we speak, off of eBay. Lol.

I think itís better to have all the wake foil builds on the same thread IMO.

for sure, i dont mind getting thread jacked, just keep the info/advice coming!

curious to keep riding this thing a few more times this season but definitely will need a helmet next time as it seems to get more dangerous the closer you get to actually "flying"

Do you guys think board straps would help with more control?. Like on a windsurf board.

i think i would be really scared to be permanently attached to this thing... but i like the slip in toe hold straps that slingshot (i think?) has started adding to their boards. would be cool to retrofit something like that as i think that would help a lot with getting up initially but you could still escape once you wreck

i cant get to ebay on this machine - but this is the one i was thinking of from slingshot.
since it looks like they sell them individually its probably not a huge deal to retrofit, would just want to be sure that thats where your feet will really end up!




edit -
although they appear to be somewhat delicate

Thatís cool .

I was thinking that you would want to pull up on the front of the board. You could get air eventually. LOL.

Also if itís still on your feet you wonít have the board on top of your head when you fall. I dono!! Ive never tried it.

Homemade board with kit foils

Hello all:

Here is were my contraption sits now. Foil kit from James at Clearwater Foils. Homemade foil board from Home Depot foam. A fair bit of work but it works way better than attaching it to a wake skate or even an old surfboard.

Took it out this morning and spent a fair bit of time flying. Now I'm going to make a taller mast so I can go a bit higher and have a bigger flying envelope.

looking good! was that a hand formed foam board?
what advantage do you see there versus an old short surfboard?

also how tall did you end up going on the mast?
