New Sroka board on the way, no more details than what I have below

Bruno Sroka has been working hard on releasing his newest Sroka Hydrofoil 2016 version and Sroka Company is glad to share the first pictures of it.
Sroka 2016 Hydrofoil version has the titanium fuselage, carbon wings, changed front and back wing fixation system. Each Sroka Kitefoil comes equipped with the protection pocket.
As the Sroka hydrofoil board 2016 version we have got a new great graphic design as well as worked on making lighter and more rigid board. We know that this board is a big star!

It will be interesting to hear from those who have mastered foiling, if they think that the latest slingshot offering would have made learning to foil, any easier

No.

Less margin for error when adjusting height which is THE hardest thing to control when learning,

More expensive with adding masts later

The idea that it lets you ride in show water is asking for trouble with collisions,

Accept the fact you need deep water to foil...

Short masts with standard width wings stop you leaning the board/mast over

If you do the wing breaks the surface and you crash

If you don't learn to lean over you don't learn anything about carving, Missout on the upwind performance, have zero chance if the wind/chop picks up

90-95 cm masts do the job

They finally have some nice looking gear with their logo on it but the flight school thing? It's a mechanism to extract more money than is needed from paying customers

If it's as cost effective as the dollar pricing it can't be a bad introduction if you have zero experience like i do. $168 for and additional 3 short mast lengths (15" 24" and 30") over the stock 35". Well worth an import if they are over priced here.

There's such a wealth of choice in alu-foils now.

As a relative beginner foiler I am not sure it is a great representation. I find touching down is not a problem, I "trip" when coming out of the water. If you have pure flat water, maybe this helps....... but I never get that so the full length foil covers that and even then you still need to go up and down a for swell/waves. It is a fast learning process....

Hi - I`m looking for some South west location advice please; I usually foil Marazion in Cornwall, but am facing a week off next week with predominantly east winds - where shall I go? Has anyone any advice re Paignton or Portland which look possible? Thanks in anticipation

A few alloy foils on display, the alpinefoil looks handy. :mrgreen:

How does an aluminium mast have more aluminium in it than another aluminium mast?

to many very strange statements in that vid.
