WOW !nearly 1000€ less than most other brands, that's what I want to see!!!

Good job!


Looks like 1350€ on the website. Boards from MHL are $1850 (~1400€)

Does moses ship to the US?


Zeeko are over €2150 so are a couple of the other Euro brands.

I see you pumping the board. When the wind gets too light, I find pumping the board will accelerate the board like the AquaSkippers. Which won't work for race boards.

I do not know yet :oops:
I did it just for fun but today there are perfect conditions in Belgium to test this pumping mode.

Anyway that's another lazy day in Zeebrugge:

Marc Blanc in another riding amongst waves video on a Taaroa Sword.



This is Johnny Heineken using a Taaroa Sword to win 3 races at the St. Francis Racing series in San Francisco against some of the top racers in the world. This is after an intensive weeks training to learn to ride a strapped foil board and he is already winning all the races.
Shows that the foil is the higher performing board. Race starts at 30 minutes.

When learning the choice of foil is pretty important if progress is going to be made rapidly. The choice of a large A or delta shape wing is ideal as it is relatively stable and can be ridden at slow speeds.
After riding a delta wing (Carafino) for 7 years I upgraded last year to a high aspect wing shaped foil http://jc-kiteboards.fr/news/category/matos/kite-foil and had to practically re-learn the sport. This new SPOTZ foil needs to be ridden a little faster to get going and is much less stable especially when doing turns. I can't imagine anyone having fun learining with this wing shape.

The main advantages are higher pointing (which was pretty good on the Carafino), superior glide, and huge top end speed. The Carafino could never exceed 15 knots on GPS whereas the SPOTZ can exceed 25 knots and top speed really depends on how brave you are.
I am not into racing so I am now selling this foil (anyone interested?) and will eventually purchase something more user friendly I can use in waves.



WINDMAKER, please contact me regarding this foil.
