Re: Shoulders Forward?

Agree with hands free launch. Possible with lower volume pocketboards. Quite neat and easy to learn as stated above. Keeps you riding right away as opposed to messing with board and position, etc. Even with missed tacks where I land on my back, I can just keep rear foot on board and with right press...

Re: riding hands-up

Yes! I have found this to be so fun and great for skill advancement. If I find I’m struggling at learn some component of a move I take a break by riding no hands and pumping and balancing. It resets my posture. Then my attempts at whatever are always better and more in balance.

Re: High Lift Wings like Moses 633 Onda: who is it for?

Who’s it for: Beginners on short mast. Intermediates on ANY length mast for learning maneuvers. Anyone riding on waves especially with any whitewater involved. The foil is so forgiving regarding stall with ventilation that all of the above are so well covered. BTW, I can push the foil as fast as I n...

Re: Moses 2018

I had 4 sessions on 590 before 633. I could not not ride the 633 then. The low end of foiling speed of 633 is lower than 590. It’s like a brisk walking speed, if that.

Temavento Sync RR

I received this board from Laszlo at KitefoilMiami one week ago. I’ve been able to ride it using Moses 633 on both 71 and 91cm masts. This has been in the Outer Banks so short mast on sound, longer on ocean. I’m 90kg, just beginning to tack. The board is like an Italian sports car! So light, small, ...

Re: beginner foil

If I had to do it over, I would hands down go with: Moses 633 Onda foil using the 71cm mast on Slingshot Dwarfcraft 4’6” board. This would allow easy learning and not to be outgrown. Later you could add 91cm mast and you would be set for years. This foil is unreal in low speed foiling and stability ...

Re: Moses 2018

Some Outer Banks experience on 633 71cm mast in the sound is crazy fun. So connected and direct to the foil. I’m using new pocket style board from Dwarfcraft. I was fearing that 71 would be too limiting but in 1 foot wind swell it was super playful. Fantastic for learning tacks and turns, etc. I had...

Re: Groove Skate

I ordered mine 4/4 and it arrived last night via fedex to my home in New York. It looks soooo fun.

Nice construction, detail, and finish. Bag is well made as well.

Can’t wait to ride this thing.

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

How about all the child labor abuse to get the cobalt for those “green” batteries. The Congo is corrupt as stink towards mining that stuff. Then, the inherent inefficiency of battery power. Then disposal of batteries. There must be other ways besides buying all this government bullshit to lessen dep...
