Fone mirage 1000 vs Moses 633

Hi all, as the subject would suggest I am wondering if people think there would be much difference between these two wings, I know the 633 has received some great feedback but I might be able to get a used fone 1000 so wondering if people think it would be as good? Been foiling for a couple of years...

Foil kite longevity

Wondering on the life span of a foil compared to lei. I have bought a soul and love it but it's quite an investment so wondering how well they last? Especially as the material is so thin, and as I am the only kiter at my spot I always reverse self land it so does that decrease the lifespan as its hi...

boards

Hi all, I am currently riding a moses T40 with their standard fluente set up, just free riding with foothooks at the front, pumping along on open swell but no open face wave riding, can't gybe and more than happy to drop into the water to turn around! However wondering what the benefits are of a low...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

on this subject in terms of landing my 12m soul in 12knots plus wind when I backstall it is come down quite hard onto the beach, is there anyway to prevent this and if not is it better for the kite to flag it out instead and prevent the impact?

thanks

Re: Moses 633 honeymoon is over

Do you think learning gybes etc would be as easy on the lift?

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

Hi all, I want to start using the 633 wing on the Moses T40 board, however the current mast position doesn't work and I don't really want to shim it. Apparently you can just redrill a new position, the process goes something like redrill, use an Allen key bit on the drill and wiggle it around inside...

Re: One kite for old school AND foiling

I have just invested in my first foil kite, 12m soul and it's very impressive, especially with wind range. My 12m one strut would overpower quickly and didnt hang nearly as well in light wind. I haven't been on it on TT but they are meant to give good hamgtime

Re: how important is pre-inflation?

Great thanks Carlos, I think I haven't been putting enough sand on the tip so it's not been able to fill sufficiently to take off on edge of window and therefore skipped downwind.

how important is pre-inflation?

Hi all, I am about 8 sessions in with a 12 soul in winds 8 - 14knots, first foil kite. In terms of launching it I initially starting doing as youtube videos informed me with the kite 90 degress to wind and me about 30 degress upwind before pulling on the bar, however it always seemed? to end up dead...

Generating power

Had my first session on a foil kite today, hydrofoiling on a 12m soul in 8 - 10mph. It was all good, super impressed coming from lei's. One question though when flying the kite up and down to generate power I was sheeting right in to turn the kite, once it's turned and is coming down through the win...
