Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

Oh yeah. I'm running a 90cm mast too..... No chance to upgrade to a longer mast or spend a week elsewhere. Money and time are an issue. Grin and bear it :-) That's what I'm doing. If there is a day for learning I take it. Otherwise if it's too lumpy I flag the learning and just fang around. I guess...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

Any tips on learning to foil jybe in lumpy choppy sea? A typical day for me is 1.5 - 2m swell 15-25 knots. I get a swell chop combo that means the sea is in a constant flux. I try to aim for a small piece of less lumpy water. But it usually isn't enough flat to pull of a foiling footswitch without ...

Re: Kite loop to waterstart

80% backloop as it feels like a slingshot and when you emerge from the loop it is travelling in your intended direction...just feels smoother. I will kiteloop if my backloop wasn't enough to get up and I have a twist rather than spin the bar.

Re: Levitaz Vs. Ghost Whisperer

Fast replacement of broken masts is nice, but shouldn't the masts not break? :-? Talking with people who have ridden both, either company makes good foils, but you'll have to narrow it down. Both Levitaz and Slingshot/Moses offer several different wings and masts with very different riding characte...

Re: Levitaz Vs. Ghost Whisperer

The 2 best in the industry???? Absolutely. Sure there are faster foils, but if you look at price/quality and the ability to mix and match wings and set ups. They are the best. Not doubting Banga, Mike’s is faster. But they are one trick ponies, customer service is impossible and expensive. Delta fo...

I prefer Moses of Levitaz, better price, better foil in my honest opinion, but you are looking at the two best in the industry. The 2 best in the industry???? Absolutely.

Re: Moses Quality Control is ... you decide

Here you go. Couple of pin holes present. Rest of the surfaces were and are flawless. Thanks for following up! Definitely not flawless. I think it looks better than my short mast where all the bubbles aren't oriented around single areas, or at least they used to be. :D I didn't say the bottom of th...

Re: What foil should my wife and I buy as our 2nd setup?

We as a couple have gone all Moses due to price / value and interchange of components. I started her on the Slingshot hoverglide 24" and it is super easy to learn on and now she is graduating to carbon and joining me on Moses. As I upgrade to 2018 mast, all the wings and fuselages are interchangeabl...
