I’m not too scared of it, the prop is pretty far away at the bottom of the mast while I’m lying on the board. I might hit it while swimming near the board, but I’ve been taking care to make sure the prop isn’t spinning.
If this was a aluminum prop, it would be a different story. The 3D printed prop would probably ruin someone’s day, but not kill them. A plastic printed prop is not a big threat when your balls are made of steel.
- I don’t think its so much of a question of learning. I can ride the foil on my kite and behind a boat no problem. I think that thruster is upsetting a force balance. I’m going to try taking the straps off so I can move up to the front of the board. I also might adjust my tail angle or thrust angle to compensate.
