Re: Recognize this mast?

... I’d like to buy one in a 60-70 cm length... Hi John, sorry never seen this construction but, also never seen anything similar from point of force transmission. The top head on the end is a box system similar to known kf-box or tuttle with the difference that those boxes have more than the doppl...

Re: Large compact wings for surfing on a hydrofoil

Hi Peter, I was also impressed by the upwind, as the conditions have been far far from good and the very fat round leading edge of Gong wings doesn't look like high performer. - With a AR 7 carbon mono wing, a streamlined wetsuit and a 11 m² sonic race the best upwind: 28°out of 4 following tacks, w...

Re: Large compact wings for surfimg on a hydrofoil

So, in same order as posted, of course profile and outline means a lot but the outer measurements are the first we meet and also crucial in terms of how fast they turn versus how lousy they go upwind. Depends from setup :wink: , the gong wings are pretty fat with more than 3 cm of thickness. Tried ...

Re: Foil Jumping Pictures/Videos & Tips

@Gunnar: Very nice, I still like the old school stuff. I think the following video was one of the reasons that motivates me, 15 years ago, to switch from other soft kites to my first flysurfer ps1, shown in the video: @flat blokes can fly: That's what you maybe mist all the years :wink: https://www....

Re: Flying Wing Commentary

Hi lightandfrost, I was hopeing one day somebody will design a "flying wing only" monofoil wing. But after 2 years of testing more than 10 different wings and riding the most used three wings each about 20-100 times (AR 7 - 3,5 and 580 - 990 mm²): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yn_2a1zl9pQ https://...

Re: Has anyone redrilled a Moses T40 for a new mast position?

Are there any stringers in the T40? No idea, but I had the same questions towards some boards, weather there is a stringer and where are the reinforcements and therefore: Can I drill and where is it more easy... So I already checked many boards also just by interest for their inner structure with a...

Re: Best "FreeRace" Foil Kite?

But, how does one get experience with high AR foil kites without actually flying them??? Hi Yodarocket31, what I wanted to say is, it is not the question of getting this experience or not, but of how to get this experience. To give an extrem example, I as wave beginner would not start at Nazaré to ...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Hi grigorib, yes a big board in the beginning is very important especially as learning flying jibes and tacks on mono is a long way to go. I started with boards of around 1,4 m myself. And a short strut is not necassarily helpful but can be the opposite, I would recommend 0,9 - 1 m. I have been very...
