Re: Moses 2018

Just ordered the 633 and the 637. I will have 633, 558 (mid) and 637 race. All to be ridden on the 101. Will be interesting to see where I gravitate. The 633 wave wing is just so enjoyable to use when there are waves of any size, I have a good selection of wings to choose from but because they need...

Re: Help with my foil starts

Feel your pain. I'm about 190 lb and ride a Vorace mast and 558 wing. What I do in water not deep enough for a conventional start..... Feet in both straps with mast about 30 degrees to the water surface. Nose of board pointed almost to beam reach. Arc the kite to 12 and then throw a fairly snappy ki...

Re: Moses 2018

Re: Line strength for hydrofoiling ?

I would not play at the margins for strength. I broke 3 normal newish flysurfer lines at once on an aggressive downloop while landing a boost on my speed5 12m last year. Let go like a gunshot. Broke a bone in my hand from the recoil into my spreader bar. Out for a month. Read about Gunnar's recent c...

http://fs1.directupload.net/images/180512/j476icfp.jpg Moses T60 back from the custom shop here on Fuerterventura, looks good, took 2 days, and cost £140, I can use it straight away as epoxy was used not polyester. http://fs5.directupload.net/images/180512/vlyfdaif.jpg http://fs5.directupload.net/i...

Re: Moses 2018

I would put it more to the back, the problem is that then maybe you cannot use the 550 wing in the best setup anymore, unless your tracks are really long. It will be better to put about 18 cm from tail. I´ve been riding my 548 about 20 cm from tail and 637 about 22 . All rails in my boards are abou...

Re: Lighter fuselage for Slingshot Hoverglide?

I used SS Hoverglide incl School Masts for my first season and was fully happy with the steps it supported me as advertised. Alongside with growing mast lengths and weights my wish grew to lower the full rig weight and I finally decided to swap with a Moses Fluente, which cost me 530 on top. Weight...

Re: fastest free ride hydrofoil?

If you really hit logs that often, why are you interested in a higher speed? Good question! :lol: although it doesn't take much to stop you cold...even a stick. I hit a stingray last week in OBX, little guy probably no more than 8" wing span.... sent me flying... of course I saw him at the very las...
