Re: Surfboard mounting

This is exactly what I thought - I was going to cut the pointy tip off - but then I thought I may appreciate the extra nose surface doing the 'dolfin dive' during my first learning sessions...plus I was hoping that the board stays "multi-purpose" surfboard ...plus this board looks nice :-)) BUT I've...

Re: Skiboard mounting

This is to report that the work is done. I've pretty much copied the Starsky's method. Thanks again.

Re: Mounting foil on surfboard - positioning

Frank, this is exactly right - after having thoroughly checked the components - its an "OLDER" HP 485 (high performance wing) + the "OLD" 67.7 mm x 148 mm plate Moses SIlente mast ...loooks like after having purchased these 5 months ago I have everything totally outdated - this is a bit annoying :wi...

Re: Mounting foil on surfboard - positioning

Thanks, Frank! I've got HP 560 wing and HP 330 stabilizer - for some reason though they are not like the ones shown on Moses Hydrofoil official website now - they are flat - no wingtips going down on the wing and up on the stabilizer ... As for the board size - quite frankly I didn't have too many o...

Mounting foil on surfboard - positioning

Hi everyone, What would be the main principles for selecting the correct hydrofoil position? My board is Nash Gun 6'2" and hydrofoil is Moses Silente. Ive seen a couple of videos where it is advised to locate the plate exactly under the rear foot for beginners (my case) I guess this ii based on assu...

Re: Skiboard mounting

Starsky - one more thing - when I read your note at the bottom of the picture, where you say: "... Also important to do the inserts when the deck has gelled but not fully cured to get a good chemical bond..." I confused by this - the way I see it - you do inserts BEFORE you do the deck ...you put in...

Re: Skiboard mounting

Thanks to you all! Will try to convert my surfboard as Starsky did - if I succeed - fine, if not - then I pass on HF this trip and to it the right way afterwards. BTW, the idea of using one front strap is not mine - I've got it from one of the instructional videos on the web.
Cheers!

Re: Skiboard mounting

Thanks, Starsky! Since this is becoming pretty urgent - I have 6'2" Naish Globe directional kitesurfboard - which by all means looks much better choice for mounting the HF....BUT - this board is filled with foam and whole lot of wooden structural elements - and even an ignorant uncivilised russian k...

Surfboard mounting

Guys, need your quick tech advise on how to mount my Moses hydrofoil to a skimboard. I'll be travelling to the spot in two days and the only board Ive managed to find here is the stringly dicounted Nobile Skim Hybrid. It has binding inserts :) . I've seen the video called "How to mount HF on wakeska...
