Gunnar's method and video makes the Long Mixer Test clear up to the point of setting Z the same as C -- why? Why even 2x C? Why wouldn't you set Z to the difference it should have been in the line plan?

Because the Z lines shrink at that rate.

Re: Carbon foil cosmetic quality

Most Race foils on the Market are delivered nice and shinny (mold release) which is not really what you are looking for. You will need to sand them to a matte finish to get the most out of them. Also you will usually have a few imperfections and pinholes which will need filling. I have tested a lot ...

Hi

I weight 75 kg and I will use a moses fluente with mw550

Best regards

Fabrizio
Have your learned to foil already? If not, maybe do a course first. After that that combo will be fine. Learning be yourself on the 550 and 91cm Mast from zero, will be difficult.

Re: Line length, gybing and down-looping

Probably the combo of kite not high enough before starting the loop, and initiating the loop before starting to turn the board.

Here is a video that shows the timing. This is on a 9m kite on 10m lines.

Hey Gunnar, nice video. Do you know volume of board? I am looking for a board for strapless foiling that is easy to put on its side.
Sorry. I am not sure about that. If I would have to guess, I would say its about 15L.

Re: WOO 3.0 pre-order

Basically Apple says that you should not be using your Apple Watch for Watersports. Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch (1st generation) are splash and water resistant, but submerging Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch (1st generation) isn't recommended. Apple Watch Series 2 and Apple Watch Serie...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Hi Gunnar, Great video, as usual! I have been wondering which board are you riding in your freeride video. Can you compare this board to a Ketos 118, if you have tried it? Thank you, Jaros Hi Jaros, I have ridden one. Besides the fact that the Ketos can only take KF box foils, it is also 2cm less w...

Re: Moses 2018

Meaning you hardly can ride with it with straps on a Moses t40 or t60 board, like i said before. Ive used it all far back on a board with tracks. Regarding the Foiling tack, its just so different, im able to do foil tacks in race wings and had to "re-learn" it to be able to do on the 633, the foot ...

Re: Moses 2018

... super stable foil. BTW I think the 633 deserves it's own thread Give race foils to racers and freeride foils to freeriders. These two classes don’t mix. They don’t even overlap, neither in kites, nor in boards, nor in foil wings. This class separation is beautiful. That is exactly right.
