With 8-10 knots i can use the 633 with a tube kite 10m (OR Flite for example), so you should easily be able to use your 11m Chrono2. When its goes under 7 knots then tube kites dont work anymore and with need Light foil kites.

Anyway i think the 633 is more fun on a tube kite with long lines or in a fast turning foil kite.

I'm guessing it must be skill level- I'm not there yet, so well done!

It also depends on your weight, your board, wind direction... but yes going underpowered you need to work out everything more, the hidrofoil and the kite.

Moses T60 back from the custom shop here on Fuerterventura, looks good, took 2 days, and cost £140,
I can use it straight away as epoxy was used not polyester.

I’d suggest using brass t-nuts and M8 bolts

Looks great, i would prefer the nuts entrance to be at the top, not in the middle.

He gave me M8 bolts and nuts, but I preferred to use the Moses standard mast bolts and the moses spigot type nuts(top and bottom), as They fit perfectly without any sloppy play, mind you, the M8 bolts were the same great fit, but I fettled the Moses fixings so have a connection with them😂

Flat water blasting tomorrow at Matas bay here on Fuerterventura, 20-30 knots forecast with offshore winds and flatwater, rescue cover has been paid for,
4 jet skis and 3 ribs give great reasurance, along with wife Pauline on the binoculars of course.
I hope to GPS track all my wing combinations on both boards, the modified T60, and the 120 pocket board-Groove Skate, which I have to admit is now looking like it may be my favourite after 2 days of tweaking and getting used to😍😎😉.

Tracks look nice, I actually like the nut entrance in the middle. If u have it at the end, u lose a bit of usable distance of the tracks. Keep up with the reports Foil

Wow Foil....I can't get my wife to go to the beach with me, let alone look through binoculars at me. I just tell her what beach I'm going to, so if I don't turn up she knows where to find my body.
