That's funny Laszlo !! I was tinkering and planning on making a water jet powered OC-1, but didn't have the funds to develop it fully. That would be fun to fly in.

Ian pls. don't even think about such strange things as jetdrive or so !! Wait until I'll show you the brand new not in Norway made Flyrigger .

Didn't the Allies capture you at Peenemunde?

Hey Jim

Nothing to do with the Allies and I promise you, have don't smoked any grass in Amsterdam.
Only count 1+1 and see the Flyrigger coming soon( with Helium filled Ama?hihi)
If you know the Flyak, you can imagine Flyrigger too.
Karel jr. will make not a chance at 2007 Molokai Hoe and Kiaola have to multiply the production of long shaft Nalu paddlezz. :-))
( Offers Hypr and Kiaola some stocks on the market ? )

Seriously, Laszlo,what is the flyrigger? I looked at your site and couldn't find a photo. How much is shipping to Seattle for one of your boats? Sorry about the WWII remark.
Aloha und Aufwiedersehen,
Jakob (Jim)
P.S. Ich spreche noch ein bisschen Deutsch.

I am not joking Jakob ( bloody serious as Rambo usually said) hihihi, we need Ian's permission to publish it, otherwise I get a Hyprkick in my ........ But I don't want to plague you,and rob you of a. good night's rest, so take a look at www.foilkayak.com and imagine a OC with 3 hydrofoils.The big question is what velocity ( stroke rate ( rpm) x wetted surface area of the paddle ( square inch) = V in miles/our ( The same formula was used from Von Braun in Peenemünde ) the Outrigger need to be a Flyrigger.

So you've already made one of these oc-1 hydrofoils? How come we can't see it? Please explain the whole Hypr thing. I really admire your innovation, it's much needed in the outrigger world. Aloha, Jim.
P.S. I think I've figured out you're from Holland.

I own several :),
OC 1 hydrofoils - I made them.

The short version of my experience:
in flat water, 'up hill', with side waves: very good.
Surf: not so good.

The hydrofoil is attached to the back iako with a lateral extension. It is actally 'flying the ama' at all times.

It definitely gives you a nice prolonged glide on each stroke, a definite increase in stability - virtually impossible to huli.

Surfing is tricky - the foil needs to be quite deep in the water: figure you are on top of a wave, riding to the right, the ama will be on the face of the wave. In case the foil comes out of the water and has to plunge back in again it really slows you down.

I have some ideas on how to work around that.
Someone who knows how to weld aluminum would help to progress.

Other than that: it works :).
It is an excellent training tool, fun to ride.

In case anyone has a particular interest in this, let me know. I am happy to exchange ideas/experiences.

Foils under the main hull: short answer: not practical.

Eckhart is correct about about foil OC-1s, great job. Fantastic dissection of the pipe dream of all OC paddlers !! We tried it too and it is self defeating thus we focused only on the foilkayak / foil surfski. The ama is unnecessary. Project is under testing right now and I cannot comment on it. So Laszlo you can do all that with flyrigger but you're going to come to the same place. This may not be appropriate forum for such issues. Aloha.

You right Ian in some way, but the foilkayak is so amazing fast, that thrills paddlers fantasy. But your forgot something on the beach ;-)

#12 Fri, 02/09/2007 - 2:43pm

Can you ever get it up? (the boat... on the foil).. I've been watching what they've been up to with the flyak for a while and decided foils are key in my plans to win the solo. :)

#13 Fri, 02/09/2007 - 2:52pm

Interesting idea, but a quick question.... How long should your paddle be to paddle that thing?

Also, do you really need the ama since the stability is derived from the foils and not the ama.
