I have had a few goes on a mates Shinn P foil and was up and going first go.
Do many of you kite on 65 mast or is 85 or more better?
Guess you were using the IC6 V2 foil on a Mitu convertible with KF box They are not compatible. F-One was clear about this, New foils (V2)are not compatible with older boards with kf box (box is at the wrong place) but V1 foils will fit new and old boards (mast track).TomW wrote: ↑Thu Oct 25, 2018 11:19 amYesterday I tried a f1 850 Wing. I normally ride a Moses 633. The F1 was almost as much lift as Moses 633. Stable in all directions. It's a good beginner Foil.
My friend is trying To learn on it and was on a F1 convertible surfboard. We had foothooks on it and the front strap position is totally wrong. It is 100--200 mm too far back. Makes you wonder if they even tried the thing with a foil on it...
Strange IC6 V1 should be ok, a friend has the same set up , I rode it a few times and it works great (foiling since 2005).
