I have used one for foiling only, and the tendon broke after one year (Chinook replaced it for free). There was no visible damage before it broke. With regular Chinook bases, tendons last several year ...

Great video, thanks for sharing. It's a great perspective for seei ...

When I foil, my harness lines are about 3 inches shorter than when I windsurf, using the same sail and boom. The boom is about an inch or two higher while foiling. So, definitely try shortening the li ...

Kalmus can be foiled at any tide level ... if you know where the shallows are, have a 75 cm or shorter mast, and are willing to walk a bit. Near high tide, you can foil with a 90 cm mast from very clo ...

We've got an unused Bic 160 with a daggerboard and a BIC Windsup, and might be willing to sell either. Both are reasonably soft on top, the 160 has full EVA. The Windsup does not have a dagger board, ...

The vector math will tell you that keeping sheeted in as you bear off or slow down is not the right thing to be doing.

I hope you're planning on winging, otherwise you bought the wrong board for your conditions.
