Re: Moses W873 2100cm wing discussion

Rolf,

Don't know why I want shorter fuselage or stabs! Just a thought....
I'm really happy with 633 set up. Hard to find anything bad about it. I can go really slow.

Re: I bit the bullet...all your fault! Lol

That board looks all wrong to me for many reasons. do yourself a favor and get a decent foilboard from Shinn or North or any other company- 135-145 cm long. Shinn Jackson looks OK to me... and even though the Slingshot foothooks invariably break- they are worth it to learn on before going strapless....

Re: Moses W873 2100cm wing discussion

I went in this progression: 550 wing- learned and rode it 40-50 hours 548 wing - could not feel any difference 590 wing - a difference in slower speed, stability - incremental from 550, but easier for sure - rode it 50 hours 633 wing - a huge difference compared to 550-590 difference- a step change-...

Re: Moses 2019

How about a " Travel Mast" that breaks down into 2 parts ? One one part 80cm other part 15/20 cm extension. extension could be at board side and be part of mast plate. Might also be convenient for people to break down for getting it into car without removing mast from the board. Pocket travel board ...

Re: Bar without Trim adjustment

Mossy,
Inclined to agree- The trimmer is not really in the way. I made trimmer-less as an experiment, and it reduces cost- no need for the cleat and the Y thingy for front lines. Plus extra line to rig. I buy the Ozone ones it together about 40€.
It is a simpler set-up, but the negatives are there.

Re: Bar without Trim adjustment

Foil kites have so much wind range, I feel like a trimless bar would really limit how and when you can use your kite. Not to say it wouldn't be nice and clean, but having the ability to change line lengths on the fly while riding is a big multiplier, especially with a hydrofoil. I agree. But you ca...

Re: Bar without Trim adjustment

Use a bar I madewith no trim on Ozone Hyperlink 7 and 9 m. Mostly i use a Ozone bar with trim. There's not a huge difference. I rig the kite on rear line knots according to the wind which is a bit tricky because you have to estimate on beach. On bar with trim, I'll do that once on the water by feel ...
