Re: Top speed of a Moses 633 SUP wing combo (the Onda)

slowboat is spot on, with a kite the stall speed can not be "claimed" - makes no sense at all. If one should use a scientific claim that could be used, it should be the polar max lift coefficient for the whole setup (actual wing not profile so also induced lift loss included) which is a unitless val...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

I hardly never lean back (that is for racing only), I lean forward in tight turns like surfers in lay down bottom turns, and this is the "holy grail" for me and what it is all about very often. But of course, when turning back on the wave (like a cutback) I lean back - and again - length is needed u...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Thank you Eddie. That is exactly what I’m feeling with the Long mast vs the short one is the weight difference. So I guess just slow things down including kite dive to give the longer/heavier mast a chance to catch up? Thanks in advance. BW No reason to slow your kitedive, just put a bit more weigh...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Interesting thoughts here... But one thing where I dont agree - I dont find the shorter masts more agile at all, on the contrary... WHEN up and flying that is :thumb: As discussed in another thread, when you go down to say 70 or 80 cm it is not possible to ride as free and hard in carves, as with 90...

Re: Rider weight versus foil classification (wind range)

Zeeko makes different size versions of the Spitfire. I assume a big part of that is rider weight. Actually no. XLW wings for Spitfire were designed to allow slow take-off and flight speeds, so it can be used to ride slower waves for example. XLW is also useful for lighter winds and easier on beginn...

Re: Question about sanding Hydrofoil for less whistling

The "singing" can be a REALLY tricky one..... You dont know what it is, dont have to be the mast, can just as well be the wing or the stabilizer, og the screws and joints. Even wings made in the same mold, can be different, some sings others dont, if just a tad difference in how much resin and how i...

Wasnt it quite difficult to ride - I mean with the nose, tail and the direction the foil points?.. Seems a bit odd that you could get on it, or?..
Are you aware it is a canard hydrofoil, which is ridden with the small wing in front ?
