Steel Inserts for Moses Mast

Replacing Brass with Stainless Steel Inserts

Steel Inserts for Moses Mast

Many Moses foil owners I have talked to have had problems with ripping out the thread of the brass inserts of their deep tuttle masts. Both of my inserts broke after about 20 sessions and ruined what could have been a nice afternoon on the water.

This picture shows how …


Deep Tuttle to Plate Adapter

675 g of Carbon, Glass and Epoxy

Deep Tuttle to Plate Adapter

To use a board with a rail system or the foiling power plate with a deep tuttle head foil mast an adapter is needed. Most manufacturers sell them as accessories to their foils but since I had plenty of time while waiting for my foil order to arrive I decided …


JP Magic Ride Repair

Nose Damage due to Catapult

JP Magic Ride Repair

I damaged the nose of my JP Magic Ride 118 in one of the famous 'Föhnstürm(e)' at lake Urner. The damage didn't look that bad at first but the board's surface felt soft at and around the spot on the railing where the boom hit the board indicating delamination. Here …


JP Magic Ride 118 Foil Edition

Replacing a Power Box with a Deep Tuttle Box

JP Magic Ride 118 Foil Edition

Similar to the procedure described in Fanatic Skate 101 I also converted my JP Magic Ride 118 into a foil-ready version. The only notable difference was that the Magic Ride has a reinforced fin-box that is laminated with both lower to the upper deck thus making the removal of it …


Fanatic Aero Fuselage Shortening

One Fuselage for Two Settings

Fanatic Aero Fuselage Shortening

Most pump-foiling videos use the Fanatic Aero foil with the 'short' 640 mm instead of the 'long' 800 mm fuselage. Since I hadn't progressed much in how far I could pump with the smaller back wing I decided to give it a try and added a second mounting position at …


Fanatic Skate 101 Foil Edition

Replacing a Slot Box with a Deep Tuttle Box

Fanatic Skate 101 Foil Edition

In this post I show you how I made my Fanatic Skate 101 foil-ready. Almost all windsurfing and racing foils come with a deep tuttle head. So the first step was to make a positive of such head. One of the difficulties is that each manufacturer seems to have its …


Custom Back Wing

For the Fanatic Aero 2500 Foil

Custom Back Wing

Using test foils from Armstrong we learned that a small back wing increases the 'pumpability' noticeably. To this point I always had the custom 365 cm2 back wing on my Fanatic Aero foil that in comparison to the Armstrong back wings we tested is quite large. Naturally I also …


Foiling Power Plate

Similar to CHINOOK PowerPlate

Foiling Power Plate

When I started hydrofoiling I did not have a proper board that could hold the Deep Tuttle mount of my newly acquired Moses (Kit 85) foil. After several hours of searching for a board on the internet the conclusion was clear: most of the windsurf foilboards were either extremely expensive, …
