How to tune your hydrofoil
Your wingset features the following information etched into the attachment area:
We use shims of various thickness to get to our recommended angle of incidence (relative to the front wing) as follows:
Your wingset comes tuned already with the correct shim (if needed). However you may choose to experiment and adjust the angle of incidence to your personal preference.
If you decide you would like more incidence, and have already removed the rear shim, you can add a shim as shown in order to increase incidence. Make sure the thickness does not exceed .3mm.
Please tighten your wingset mounting screws to the following specification. It is important to not over-tighten them.
