Re: Groove Skate

Phlox and all, I’m in same boat and just trying to be patient. I do imagine he got swamped after that Gunnar endorsement. Kudos to Gunnar’s value (a plug for him) and grooveskate for their design innovation. I’m fine waiting and trying not to be a pest. Plus I’ve been on Dwarfcraft 54” and beginning...

Re: Moses 2018

I rode the 633 on 91cm mast today 7m Neo in gusty 18-28 mph winds. It was soooo nice. I am so impressed with this setup.

Home run Moses!

Btw, 7m sessions are not the easiest for learning foiling tacks! This was my first time ever foiling on such a small kite. Wild.

Re: Groove Skate

Foil, I’m like 1-2 weeks behind you. My groove skate is in the mail. I’ve just had 2 sessions on 633 using Dwarfcraft and frankly, I’m in love with the ride. I can’t wait to try new board! Can you elaborate on mast position for your setup please. I’m 90kg and set my 91cm mast all the way to the rear...

Re: Moses 2018

Today I tried 633 for the first time. On 91 fluente. Dwarfcraft strapless with 12M ultra in 10-12 mph wind. No swell. I’m in love. “There’s a new girl now” kept singing in my head! It took only a minute to feel all smiley and to start working on progress. It’s amazing how slow the water speed can be...

Re: How far do you drive to kite?

2 hrs is my limit.

I live in Great Lakes region and my goto spots (3) are 15 min. But for wind needs, can tap into frontal energy of any system by driving up to 2 hrs east or west. That and foiling have increased session count a ton.

Re: Moses 633vs 590 position of mast?

So, 1.5” further back will be all the way back. And I’ll proba rig 2m smaller kite. This will be interesting
Thanks

Re: Important Message: I almost died - Gunnar Biniasch

Very needed story to share. Glad all is well. I recently board a marine whistle for like 6$ and it lives on my glasses retention strap. I never forget it and am never bothered by it. It tucks inside my top so no bouncing around. But if I need attention I know I have a reasonable shot at alerting som...

Re: Moses Onda 633 SUP combo - what board is your choice?

And the foil evolution continues!

Now more boards needed for variety of wings. Having mast tracks seems the way to go to simplify all that whether strapped or strapless.

I still want a second board

Moses 633vs 590 position of mast?

So I’ve just received some Moses gear. I’ve tried 590 wind on Fluente 91mast using Dwarfcraft board. For this I had back of mast at the 3cm mark. I had lift foil previously and would use 4cm mark. Now to go with 633 wing and 483 stabilizer should I start at say 2cm? 1cm? i.e. how much further toward...

Re: Do I bother to get a 60cm mast?

I hear both sides of whether a shorter (71cm vs 91cm) mast may be better suited for swell/wave riding, but I only know one side: that is on longer mast but with freestyle/smaller wing. I’m trying to envision how the surf/sup wing may lead to paradigm shift into how the hydrofoil is ridden and hence ...
