C'mon now,
He's not all bad.
He's on a BIC!!!

I didn't say he was bad. I said I have 341 reasons to hate him. That's a lot of reasons.

So that's a foil with a trimbox adapter?

:)

Haha!!!! You guys are funny!!!

Fact 1: foiling will be the most fun you've had on a windsurfer since you got planing for the first time.


Fact 2: It can happen in 5 knots

And to answer the box question. Any board with a deep tuttle will do.

Later model larger Bics have deep tuttles. Acquired a 148 for just such use. LP in the Gorge do a regular tuttle, too. Windance has an adapter for tuttle and powerbox.

I can't make mine with a 7.0 go in 5 knots but it is pretty close to replacing the Formula/9.5 combo that is my warm weather bread and butter. When I'm not crashing every two seconds I'll try something larger.

I've only done a few skips and jumps but it positively addicting and puts you back at the beginning of the learning curve.

A shorty....wow,looking toward to getting home to Avon but board shorts and lots of sunscreen are the call in Rico!

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
