Re: Foil position on track

I am riding a GW 101 with 590 wing on a lf galaxy board. I have the foil about 4 cm fro the back of the track. I know this could be a long discussion, but in general, what is the benefit to moving the track all the way forward? Is it just for moving foot position forward? Thanks for any input. "Is ...

Re: Moses 2018

Okay, we know the trim has to be offset some, changing from normal Moses wings to the Onda and reverse. Laughingman, what about getting another board(s) instead?, where the tracks fit the 633 wing (AND also the smaller wings) That would solve your problem, as when you stand correctly, these wings do...

Re: Moses 2018

You are right cwood, no such thing as "too much lift" no. Writing now as a "general" thread: But there is a but... For initial learning some find they are too big and a tad more difficult than our "normal" beginner wing sizes which are also pretty big, because they dont ride so smooth and easy but p...

Re: Rider Reviews: 2019 Ghost Whisperer 91, Moses 633, Lift 170, H-glide H4

True, it is a way too new part of kitehydrofoiling with these "surf" wings. Ketos and Moses have probably had these for the longest time (Ketos for over a year, Moses I dont know but some time too). It has only caught on hugely all over in the last 3 months actually, and many brands are making and t...

Re: beginner hydrofoiler questions

Agree with Bob regarding line length - use what you are familiar with for the first learning phase. When you get up and ride more frequent, THEN you should use longer lines a tad smaller kite, so you wont get overpowered. "Overpowered" on a foil is a nightmare when new, and scary and risky things ca...

World kite championships 2018

In our backyard, such an awesome week here in Aarhus, and amazing footage of the Medal Races today. Not the kitefoils, would expect the kite MR to be saturday - but take a look at the Finn and 470s - noone can say dinghy racing isnt physical challenging :naughty: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...

Re: beginner hydrofoiler questions

You are medium weight. Go out in 6-7 m/s (12-14 knots) with a 10-11 m2 kite. This will be the easiest and safest conditions to start and learn in. 15-16 knots could also be used, with an 8 or 9 m2 if you have to, but a bit more risky. Your kite wont be too fast, and no dangerous situations. You will...

Re: Kite size recommendations for first foil kite?

Snip... BUT, racers are riding around on giant 12 and 15 and 18m foil kites in conditions where I'd be flying my 7m inflatable. Do foil kites really like to be ridden larger, or is this just racers trying to hold down as much power as possible? If I want a gentle introduction to foil kites should I...
