Re: High Lift Wings like Moses 633 Onda: who is it for?

Tom, can you comment on the differences between the 550 and 590 wings? 550 is magic wing. Its an intermediate wing. it will drop off flying a bit sooner than 590. So you need a bit more speed going into and out of transitions. Not a lot more, but noticable. 550 has less roll stability, Making it mo...

Re: Dakine option spreader

What ever you do,. Don't get the 2017 version. It is faulty design and the bar will want to slide off retainer on clip side, putting pressure on the plastic clip which will fail. They changed design in 2018. I emailed retailer, powekiteshop in UK and directly to Dakine about the problem, but no resp...

Re: Moses 2018

Cwood,

I posted in other thread: if I'm in light wind 6-8 knots with 13m race foil kite , no waves but want to just freeride. Will 637 race wing be better than 633? I just want it to be easy and enjoyable..

Re: High Lift Wings like Moses 633 Onda: who is it for?

Let's say I'm hunting lightwind and there's no waves at all..like 6-8 knots and a 13m foil race kite.
What Moses wing set up be best? I have 550 and 590 wings. Wonder if better to get race wings or the Onda. I'm on 2016 Fluente mast which I will not change.

Hej Foil,

How far is your mast plate rear screws from the tail of your board on the 633?

Re: Corrosion on Aluminium parts (Moses fuselage)

I will chime in as a complete idiot. I have a 2016 Moses set up. The fuselage is painted. There is no sign what so ever of corrosion. Then they anodized the fuse. Why??? Probably cheaper. Painting required eching, painting with voc. Bla bla. Now anodizing is looking like bad choice. I work in consum...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

Jeees foil, 5 hours on the water? Impressive. After 1 hour I'm getting tired. And I ride a bike 80-100km a week to keep my legs in shape. I'm missing something significant as I'm not anyway near a flying footswitch. I think it's speed and Cajones. I need a coach. Problem is, guys around here think I...

Re: Foil Kite advice Chrono,Hyperlink, Soul

The hyperlink 9m UL is a great kite for hydrofoiling freeride. Had another great session yesterday. Wind was solid 8ms, with lulls to 6ms and sustained gusts to 9-10. Data said average 8,3ms . It absorbs everything, completely smooth and perfectly powered at all times. Up loops during flying gybes a...

Re: Foil Kite advice Chrono,Hyperlink, Soul

Luchini, I have one foil kite, the hyperlink 9m UL, which I'm using only on Hydrofoil. I have 15 sessions on it since May1. This session record for me in May. My first foil kite after 16 years kiting. Now I have fallen in love with the smooth power and ability to depower without fluttering or loss o...
