Re: Top speed of a Moses 633 SUP wing combo (the Onda)

Colin, Interesting. I'm about 80 hours in now. Losing count. I don't ever lose speed control on the 550 anymore, and I can push the low end more. It's like riding a unicycle. I feel exactly when the wing us going to drop me and I can react with the kite or angle of sail to gain speed. It's a 800€ in...

Re: My next board design.

Think about those tips with sharp corners. Look at what they are doing when you ride.

Re: I need convincing
