Re: lightest winds - floaters vs sinkers

I"ve been contemplating this exact thought for a while. I have a Spleene Surf Door 5'0 and a 5'7 that I'm planning to use a foil on. I would have already mounted the foil and tried it but the boards require holes to be drilled and I'm a bit reluctant to do that. I think the sinker could definitely g...

Re: Slingshot Foils 2018

Did anybody try the Converter 5'4" already? :D LOVE mine! When the wind picks up it's a very fun board. I upgraded the stock fins to the carbon/glass ones in identical size/shape and I think it lost some of it's playfullness. It just doesn't have that pop when doing top/bottom turns now. To me, it ...

Re: wetsuit alteration

You shouldn't cut your wetsuit to fit. The arms and legs are cone shaped and if you cut either they will be loose at extremities. If you do decide to taylor it, the neoprene cement is quite powerfull as it melts the neoprene to glue the pieces together. It's messy and a pain to work with though. If ...

Re: Looking for a 12 mt wave kite that turns fast, feels light and drifts. Exists?

Your point is taken, however, beyond that it seems to me that the parameters in kite design are limited. There are only so many elements that can be tweaked one way or another. Tweaking in one direction will improve certain characteristics ... but at the expense of other characteristics. So ... how...

Re: Looking for a 12 mt wave kite that turns fast, feels light and drifts. Exists?

As I've mentioned in a similar thread a while ago, most of these replies are worthless. One HAS to compare the speed of a kite to another kite. In this case, a wave kite preferably against another wave kite. Only after that could there be a consensus on which kites are faster than others. Just becau...

Re: Moving To Miami?

Having a place close to the water in FL, one worries more about a hurricane hitting it than sea level rise.

Here you go. Couple of pin holes present. Rest of the surfaces were and are flawless.
Thanks for following up! Definitely not flawless. I think it looks better than my short mast where all the bubbles aren't oriented around single areas, or at least they used to be. :D

Re: Moses Quality Control is ... you decide

I am pretty sure I mentioned that it did not contain any carbon and was just cheap fibreglass which also was not thoroughly wetted. In all my videos I have given fair reviews. I have mentioned the good and bad points of each foil, including the Moses Foils. Here are some pics of one of the most exp...

Re: Moses Quality Control is ... you decide

Norcom The slingshot sticker just says, we never bothered to design our own foil, we happily borrowed the design from lift for our first one and now get them fancy Italians at Moses to do our design too.. all the while we charge a premium to our customers as they think we have added something magic...

Re: Moses Quality Control is ... you decide

I disagree. You have been told multiple times in this thread that there is no problem with the base. Those pinholes are very minor. Your insistence on that this is bad QC, even though far more experienced members have corrected you, makes it clear that your only goal is to spread false information....
