Re: Slingshot Ghost Whisper 91 2019 imput needed

15 knots...

633 set all the way back and a 6/7/8m lei

Not a race kite...that kite wants to go fast in a straight line , that foil wants to go slow and carve and be strapless

But it will tolerate straps with shims and such

Re: Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

Another thing is to push your mast with your rear foot under the water, simultaneously while pulling on the opposite rail of you. Whether you have a neutral foil or not, pushing the mast with your foot to get the foil on its side is 10x easier than trying to just muscle it with your arms.

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

I should add that having a large board with a surf wing and a short mast sucks donkey balls and u will ventilate on the carves no matter what you do, pocket boards and surf wings

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

Re: milling out aluminum fuselage

Yea I’m pretty good with wood, but aluminum is a different ball game, I’m out

Thanks for the info

I have a Moses 590 but wanted a cheap 633 with the new slingshot infinity wing, might just deal with the weight
