Re: Top speed of a Moses 633 SUP wing combo (the Onda)

Peter, do you tend to associate larger/slower wings with beginner riders and pushing the race wings as a pinnacle of foil development for “experienced” riders? Because nether Gunnar Biniasch nor Greg Drexler are beginners and they can ride either but both like large wings for freeride. Ability to g...

Re: Top speed of a Moses 633 SUP wing combo (the Onda)

I thought it was variable amount of lift at variable AoA. Then at certain AoA lift decreases, a stall. Some wing designs, thus curve is falling drastically and deep, like cliff. Other wings the curve is more like a hill. The cliff curve is difficult to recover from, the hill is easier. Very true. E...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

But as said before, pretty sure now, the misconceptions to one or the other side comes between those who can accept a slight touch(down), and those who can not, thus VERY different likings appear :naughty: [/i] I wonder how long will it take me to get good enough to hardly never touch down, when I ...

Re: Top speed of a Moses 633 SUP wing combo (the Onda)

slowboat is spot on, with a kite the stall speed can not be "claimed" - makes no sense at all. If one should use a scientific claim that could be used, it should be the polar max lift coefficient for the whole setup (actual wing not profile so also induced lift loss included) which is a unitless val...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

I hardly never lean back (that is for racing only), I lean forward in tight turns like surfers in lay down bottom turns, and this is the "holy grail" for me and what it is all about very often. But of course, when turning back on the wave (like a cutback) I lean back - and again - length is needed u...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Thank you Eddie. That is exactly what I’m feeling with the Long mast vs the short one is the weight difference. So I guess just slow things down including kite dive to give the longer/heavier mast a chance to catch up? Thanks in advance. BW No reason to slow your kitedive, just put a bit more weigh...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Interesting thoughts here... But one thing where I dont agree - I dont find the shorter masts more agile at all, on the contrary... WHEN up and flying that is :thumb: As discussed in another thread, when you go down to say 70 or 80 cm it is not possible to ride as free and hard in carves, as with 90...
