Re: 90X140 to 90X165 Adapter?

Does anyone know of a company who sells an adapter to mount a foil with 90X140 hole spacing on a board with 90X165 insert spacing? Has anyone built an adapter? Recommendations? I'd rather not add additional inserts to my board. For that you should should be able to make your own adapter pretty easi...

Re: Anti-slip material on foil board. Where to buy?

Table salt is my preferred material to make a non skid deck finish. It is not as coarse as Sugar.

Re: Race Control System - much better depower trim!

I ended up getting an Ozone Race control bar and lines to partner my new Flysurfer Soul (didn't like the FS bar) - surprised to find that the double pulley depower trim works way better (smoother,, less force required, more accurate adjustment) than a standard depower trim - why this isn't just use...

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

Stall is not a function of speed. Stall happens at a certain angle of attack. What is meant above is that at that speed, you need such a high angle of attack to support your weight (minus the kite lift) that this angle of attack is critical - stalls. I assume that gunnar said 82kg meaning no kite s...

So what's the stall speed?
About 6 knots for a 82kg person.

Gunnar's method and video makes the Long Mixer Test clear up to the point of setting Z the same as C -- why? Why even 2x C? Why wouldn't you set Z to the difference it should have been in the line plan?

Because the Z lines shrink at that rate.

Re: Carbon foil cosmetic quality

Most Race foils on the Market are delivered nice and shinny (mold release) which is not really what you are looking for. You will need to sand them to a matte finish to get the most out of them. Also you will usually have a few imperfections and pinholes which will need filling. I have tested a lot ...

Hi

I weight 75 kg and I will use a moses fluente with mw550

Best regards

Have your learned to foil already? If not, maybe do a course first. After that that combo will be fine. Learning be yourself on the 550 and 91cm Mast from zero, will be difficult.

Re: Line length, gybing and down-looping

Probably the combo of kite not high enough before starting the loop, and initiating the loop before starting to turn the board.

Here is a video that shows the timing. This is on a 9m kite on 10m lines.
