Re: Strappless or Strapped for Learning to Foil ??

I learned with front hook only. Takes a lot less energy to waterstart vs strpless which you will do a lot of while learning. Went strapless for awhile after that, but I prefer the ease of the front hook, in the end. I am 6'4", and getting into a ball for the strapless waterstart gets tiring.

Re: Moses 633 mod

Consider only putting a shim at the connection of mast and fuse. Google “Delta Shim Foil” and there is a slick 6 min video that explains the science and how to do it. It takes 3 minutes! On a 105 cm mast, one CCard thickness of shim = about 1.25” of foot movement on the deck. If you have the 91 mast...

Re: Slingy's Moses 633

Yes. Most kitesurf products are made in China. The Ghost Whisper foils, however are manufactured in the same facility as Moses, because they are a joint venture. Moving forward I certainly hope the wings are manufactured in China so that folks get get their foil gear.

Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

I went from the AAir to the 36 DC and there is no going back. I got it because I got tired of wrestling the AAir into my hatchback... I am riding the SS 633 on a 105 cm GW mast in all wind conditions. So much easier to ride, lighter, less mass in front of you slowing everything down, easier to get i...

Re: Dwarfcraft 4’6” to Dwarfcraft 3’6”?

I would advise starting with the 150 plate all the way back. Adjust forward if needed.

Re: Anyone Have the 2019 Slingshot DwarfCraft Micro 36?

On my 2018 DC 36, with the 2017 105cm GW mast, I have my 2017 GW plate all the way back including using the additional rear mounting holes that are 1" forward of the other. The 2017 GW plate is longer than the 2018's, with three mounting holes an inch apart in front, and two sets in the rear. The 63...

Anyone Have the 2019 Slingshot DwarfCraft Micro 36?

Any chance you can pull a measurement for me? I need to know the distance from the rear of the mast track to the rear of the board on the 2019 DC 36 Micro. Currently riding a big surf wing on the 2018 DC36, and it's ALL the way back. From the photos it looks like SS moved the track forward several c...

Re: Moses 2018

Look what just dropped! Looks like a 633 with small winglets for safety in surf:

Re: Moses Onda 633, The Fix !

The shim under the mast does not make the wing behave differently, or ride "like a smaller wing." What it does is move the center of effort relative to your feet--that's it. Wing flies the same. Today I decided I wanted to ride with my back foot 1 inch farther back to get more leverage for tight tur...
