Re: Moses 2018

While I do not think this picture has much relevance due to perspective making it far from showing real life size difference... ... I think the pics I posted before say quite a bit more really. But even those do not tell how they ride in comparison :) Which I will be going to do NOW back to back. ....

Re: Moses 2018

I wish someone could take a similar pic of 548/550 over 590 that’d be cool to be able to see wing area difference.

Here’s a 558 (actually 545) wing over 548, edge of matching shape (here trailing edge) aligned to demonstrate difference in wings area.

Re: Tarifa to Vladivostok

That should be a great getaway! Keep a good dash cam running, both for safety and footage. Think of all the hiking precautions (like “don’t smell like food to animals”, have source of fire and heat, keep a stock of water and dry food). Pepper spray might be helpful, a satellite-based emergency beaco...

Re: Moses 2018

Frank and Foil - Thank you guys for nice pics! Here’s a 558 (actually 545) wing over 548, edge of matching shape (here trailing edge) aligned to demonstrate difference in wings area. If anyone can take a similar pic of 548/550 over 590 that’d be cool. Moses says width of 548 is 120mm as well as 558 ...

Would you post a pic of 548 over 590 to show size/shape difference please?

Re: Moses 2018

I'd be interested to hear about the manoeuvrability of the 590 vs the 550. I suspect grigorib is right, a good combination is the 590 and 558. I also am a heavier, 200 lbs. guy so for someone ligther 590 might be a wing too big. But just imagine, _what_if_ 590 goes fast really smooth and has front ...

Re: Moses 2018

Answering my own question a bit I assume rider's weight will be a serious factor
heaviest rider and/or most lowend - 590 wing (or 548)
light rider - 550 wing
fast but "not race yet" - 558

Re: Moses 2018

Well, "fun" is really subjective factor. I checked with Moses directly few days ago, below is the communication Hi, I’m looking for a kitefoil setup which will get me up onto foil at the lowest speed and will allow riding at lowest speeds in both transitions and regular tacks. Would 590 wing be a be...

I don't think the 590 is going to give me anything significant. We have turbulent water and chop all over, plus sea grass. I'm 78-80 kg.

Speaking of seaweed the swept back shape of 590 compared to 550 should help
