Re: A good 3/2?

I'd get a Ripcurl. Have flashbomb 5-4 and E-bomb 3-2. Both are fantastic. First wetsuits I've owed ( into water sports 50 years), that actually fit.

Re: Moses HF 2017

Omg, agree. I'd probably buy one.
Where are you? The Baltic states?

Re: Moses HF 2017

Omg, I'd probably buy a bigger front wing right now, but I'll probably progress from now pretty fast to where I'm not so interested. Where I kite, winds at 10 knots are not consistent during the session, often lulling to 6. We don't have low wind thermals. Our light winds get good at 12 knots, then ...

Re: My progression, some help needed please

Hi Abel, it was pretty variable wind as usual in spring, wind increasing with approaching low pressure, and I had a low peninsula to windward. I'd say it was mostly 12-14 then some 16 gusts. My sessions, advice here, and from my instructor in Mexico was to not go out underpowered, but use I kite 1 s...

Re: Moses HF 2017

Frank, no did not. Please remember I'm a beginner, and I can't make any distinctions anyway.
I think that my feedback is valid for a beginner. Meaning, the 548 is perfectly fine to learn on, as is the 550, but you won't notice the difference as a beginner.

Re: My progression, some help needed please

I was out today 1,5 hrs with new setup. wind 12-16 knots with 12m Mono. At first I was having a lot of trouble. I thought foil would fly at lower speed, which was not the case. I was porpoising. If it was slower it was 10% slower, and not perceptible. Once I gave up on slower speed, and went faster,...

Re: Moses HF 2017

Ok, today I was out 1,5 hrs in 14-16 knots wind with a 12 Mono and a 2016 Fluente setup and 548 front wing. Basically, I can't feel any difference in this wing compared to 550. I'm noob, and at 11th session. I did have a great session with good controlled flight and being able to carve some relaxed ...

Re: Moses T40 board - replace the board foil connection from bolt through system to screw in?

I've keep the strut attached to the board and remove fuselage and wings as a unit. 2 screws.
You need a station wagon.

Re: Foilboard started

I use the laser quite often. It's a self leveling with a horizontal and vertical laser in a line. lazer, not very expensive and it's useful. Shoot horizontal att low angle from tail or nose to check cross section symmetry. Line along rocker to check rocker. Line up finboxes Place carbon strips strai...
