To highjack this OT thread, it’s even more dangerous when cars go bombing up the PC road, even at 6:01 AM Tuesday in a silver four door with a nationally recognized brand on your doors at 40-45 mph blowing by the sign at the corner that says “drive like your kids live here.â€

Please slow down

Thanks,

Eric

Question for other Converter riders…

I got mine last year and started with the mast almost all the way back in the track. Now I have it almost all the way forward in the track and it seems to help with a more comfortable stance.

But my toes of my front foot are still near the front edge of the deck pad and my back foot is on the front of the back pad overlapping a bit on the deck when I am riding. So it makes me wonder if the pads and strap inserts are places for surfing the board but a bit too far back for strapping it up for foiling.

Thoughts?

Without consideration to the size of your car, or disposable income, I would get the Alien Air for learning to foil, and a dedicated wave/kite board for swell.

Start on a 15" mast and work your way up to 24/30/36. Follow the tutorial videos on "Foil Academy." Practice what they say to practice, then move to next stage and mast length as you master each lesson. Fun right from the first reach. Much safer.
