Re: Moses 2018

I wish someone could take a similar pic of 548/550 over 590 that’d be cool to be able to see wing area difference. While I do not think this picture has much relevance due to perspective making it far from showing real life size difference... ... I think the pics I posted before say quite a bit mor...

Re: carving to toe

Yup, doing it when going upwind its way easier and the trick its to keep tension on the lines all the time. Because you wont probably be able to make a tight turn you might want to keep moving the kite with small inputs while turning to keep line tension.

Re: Moses 2018

Well, "fun" is really subjective factor. I checked with Moses directly few days ago, below is the communication Hi, I’m looking for a kitefoil setup which will get me up onto foil at the lowest speed and will allow riding at lowest speeds in both transitions and regular tacks. Would 590 wing be a b...

Re: Moses 2018

Hej Foil, looking forward to your real-world review. I'm considering going up to Vorace mast with 550 / 330 wings. From what Frank is saying I don't think the 590 is going to give me anything significant. We have turbulent water and chop all over, plus sea grass. I'm 78-80 kg. Be interesting to her...

So you think the 590 is that much better than 548?? I looove the 548 wing for carving and freestyle.

Is the stall speed on 590 slower then 548? If so, then yes, forget 548.
I doubt the 590 will be so agile when compared to the 548, maybe Frank can tell, but for sure will have slower stall speed.

Re: Moses 2018

I personalty do not think that going even slower then you are able to go on the 550 will help in any maneuver really, because the horizontal speed adds stability as well (or at least in my mind it does). Being able to go slower should help beginners (because speed its very scary at the beginning) a...
