Blue Planet Show: Adrian Roper | AXIS foils

Informative interview from one of the brains behind AXIS foils…


Blue Planet Show: In today’s interview, I speak with Adrian Roper, the man behind AXIS foils. We get into some tips for beginners, talk about his background and how he got into watersports at a young age, and then we talk in detail about foil design, how to set up the foil properly, how different aspects of the foil setup affect how the foil performs, new designs he is working on, the mast, importance of stiffness, the fuselage, the angles of the foil. So many cool technical things. I learned a lot from this show. I hope you do as well.

This AXIS Foil brochure has the shim guide Adrian mentions on pages 41, 42: http://www.axisfoils.com/current-broc…
