Re: attach carbine hook to spreader bar

How do you tether launch / land with the CL attached directly to the rope slider? Just walk me through your steps. Seems to me that fiddling around with closing the CL over the rope, with kite bouncing around on the other end, is cumbersome. Regis; does end of the CL ever slip off the ronstan frict...

Re: Felt like I Nearly Drowned

hard to explain the feeling in a situation when you and your kite is getting washing machined by two different waves simultaneously in powerful surf... IMO. release kite to safety if beyond relaunch. (the next few minutes will be easier on you and your kite) if you get in the lines get ready to rele...

Re: Fone mirage 1000 vs Moses 633

Hello Sergio, Im not jumping with my foil, but have run a ground with speed as my home spot is a shallow lake (sand) I ride 80% of my time on the 1000cm2 front wing, and so far no show of stress from high speed impacts. Also comes apart nice and easy. What you mentioned about the force on the larger...

Re: Fone mirage 1000 vs Moses 633

Sorry, didn't mean to be harsh. But you gotta admit it's a bit concerning that you have to sand it to make it fit, and that they redesigned it. So consumers should be aware... Advantage of Moses is the screws can be bought off the shelf from several suppliers. Very simple and low tech system, with ...

Re: Fone mirage 1000 vs Moses 633

Kind confirms the 2018 sucks... sandpaper on a new foil, and then they changed it... [/quote] I kinda expected a little more from someone like you Tom... So let me try again. I suggested "a little sand paper" on the INSERT part of the foil. (see photo attached) (only to fine finish the little imperf...

Re: Fone mirage 1000 vs Moses 633

The entire F-one mechanical solution is a nightmare. 2 guys in Brazil had them, one a friend. Problems, problems. Hammers, vaseline, broken parts... Me? A couple of screws on my Moses and go... I have to disagree...IMO its brilliant! I use two sets of Fone foil, without any problems. Instead of "va...

Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

I just had 6 weeks in Brasil. As a keen SB rider, I almost didn't take my foil with me this time, thinking the waves are really fun only on a SB. Well, I was sooo wrong. Foiling in a less then perfect conditions, turned my session in to a great one. I had a 1000cm3 front wing, up to head high waves,...
