Re: Moses Onda with 330 Stabilizer

Peter - it wasnt Tom who wrote it - it was Foil - different dude :) But it was Tom I meant, and maybe also foil yes. Good to hear others that don't move their feet more when using bigger wings. Some do apparently, others don't. But I think the trim issue is located, that was my main point :D 8) PF

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

Indeed Wazza Foil, and moved forward a bit to keep the turning dynamics "good" and well balanced :thumb:

Re: Moses Onda with 330 Stabilizer

Hmmm, I have been thinking about the many post saying the trim is altered quite some on the 633. When strapless no issue unless you got a supershort board. On a very similar wing, the Ketos 1200 cm2 Surf wing I dont move my feet around more than on my 790 cm2 wave wing (strapless that is), and I sta...

Amazing Øyvind :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

The stabless fits your extreme fast turning spot on :naughty:

For us mere mortals who cant do shit, compared, it makes no sense but a disadvantage really :roll:

But you make it rock, respect :rollgrin:

Re: Moses Onda with 330 Stabilizer

A smaller stabilizer will only help sligthly... Might be fun in terms of a more lively hydrofoil in terms of turning though, but off topic. Try shimming the stab as the first thing. Then you can also shim the fuselage/mast to get the wing further rear, but will also give you a "nose up" riding postu...

Re: Hydrofoil comparison table

As far as I am aware high stiffness only starts to play a key role for top end racing foils where the loading is severe. I don't believe this at all, I think stiffness is the number 1 factor affecting stability outside of the actual shape/design of the foil. That said, stiffness increases as the ma...

Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

Amazing, you dont HAVE to, as no gain when all carbon (as I assume when a Tuttle head), but choose to dissasemble and wipe and pack everything because you LIKE to do that? Cool, but not sure many (not me at least) like this part of it, when you ride daily in periods, between work and family/friends ...

Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

Above two posts is the very reason why you have to... One has been lucky to avoid it most often, most others get stuck bolts quite fast if left assembled. After two weeks on an alufoil I had, the mainbolts (with lots of tefgel) were stuck in the mast and I were lucky to be able to get them out with ...

Re: SS’s New Infinity Wings

The aspect ratio numbers are wrong in above scheme... They should be corrected as they are only half of what they should be, so can not be compared to anything :wink: The easy way to calculate is to take span*span/area :D Which essentially is the same as span/middlechord which is the very definition...
