      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  8. Practice videos

    ?? Looked to me like ETNZ pulled the pin twice. In the first, after they nearly lunched it at 12:20 and AR caught them. In the second when AR pulls out, looks to me like they cross ETNZ in the background already head to wind. I will have to go back and see if I can pick the mark rounding, but ETNZ may have an edge upwind and gets ground down downwind in those vids. Who knows what the real situation is. Love the wing only stuff tho. Looks like a big A.
  9. Please explain...

    Flair?
  10. Team NZ

    Might have to explain that to our non league playing posters.

    AR matt black wing? Which one is it
  12. Artemis?

    If you are changing the angle of attack for lift, wouldn't the board be curved front to rear rather than helical. Helical to me implies changing lateral resistance as the board goes up and down. Guess there is no reason why it can't be both. They certainly have appeared to be well on the right side of the speed/handling line so far.

    Few more match racing videos up from 16 May. OR quicker than SBJT twice AR quicker than GTF (best foiling tack by AR at about 5:15 I have seen any team do) ETNZ quicker than GTF

    From the commentary, I was wondering if I was watching a different video. To me LBAR looked very competitive with ETNZ (about the same speed or slightly faster) but not as neat turning the corners. I hope ETNZ are still using old foils or this is may not be pretty.

    Now that is what I have been waiting to see. Nice.
