Do you want to get more control and performance from your hydrofoil?

Do you want to get more control quick and skimpily  from your hydrofoil?
Ever noticed that tiny wobble as you race down a wave or kick out when you think the foil has come loose?
With hydrofoils it is key to have all the componets as solid and flex free as posable to translate your control inputs all the way down the mast and to the foil as quick and as accurately as possible
Due to manufaturing tolarances with some foils you can find very small amounts of movent between your foil componets for eg were the mast goes into the mount socket or into the fusalarge. This small amount of movement at one end of the foil can lead to a lot larger amount of movent at the other.
To Solve this problem and to get more performance from you Hydrofoil we have introduced our Self adhesive Stainless steel shim tape in 3 sizes 0.03, 0.05 and 0.10mm
It is as simple as disassembling your foil and giving it a good clean to make sure all surfaces are dry and free from contaminates and then using the appropriate size shim and applying it to ether side of the part and rebuilding the foil. The tape be pulled off and replaced if needed or double layered to shim larger gaps or cut into shorter lengths with a old pair scissors for small gaps (Disclaimer: we do not take any sort of reasonability for you damaging your wife’s best dress making scissors!)
Its these attentions to detail that can really make a difference.
Any questions just drop us a message.
Happy Flying!
