Re: Short masts

Definitely 28"! I have been riding 90 cm mast for two years and now it is collecting dust after I bought the 70 cm in the beginning of this summer - much more fun! In deep water and waves, why do you find it more fun with the 70 instead of the 90 ? Or are you talking about shallow water ? ... So cu...

Re: Opinion on lessons

It is like learning to bike. You can pay for an instructor and he will shorten your learning time. But it were dad/moms/friends and your own effort to get to it. First three sessions will suck, then you learn to go either direction, then you're scared to go downwind, then you figure out to foil down...

Short masts

Let's assume you've passed your foil learning phase long ago and you enjoy freeride, regardless of your racing habits. You ride deep water enough but imagine you go to places waist to chest deep like OBX or even more shallow like SPI Assume you've got a 42" mast already which is quite long for those...

Re: roll stability of foils?

I've been going through these threads but what I understood that 330 keeps foil vertical well and that's what I'm struggling with in lighter winds during starts, it's much harder to edge initially. That might be because of long, 42" mast too but I don't know which is a stronger factor here and if s...

Re: Slingshot Ghost Whisperer Foil

The Fluente wing is 550, this one is 545. I can't find the 545 on the Moses website tho... Which Moses wing is recommended for wave riding / easier to ride at lower speeds? That would be the Moses W548, looks like the 550 but has a deeper profile which creates more lift and lower speeds. Cheers Fra...

Re: roll stability of foils?

...all the Moses wings now , and the 550 is my overall favourite, I use the others in more specific situations. Do you think you can help me with below questions, please? - how do you think GW 545 (from Ghost Whisper) wing compares to 548? Would 548 be more freeride, lower takeoff speed, lower lowe...

Re: roll stability of foils?

It appears the rear wings on the GW are similar or same as Moses rear wings. Go down to the thread on Moses wings. But basically I have both 325 and 330 rear stabilizer wings. 325 is considerably less roll stable, less yaw stable and generates less downward lift, feels better at speed than 330. Tha...

Re: Kites for 60kg girl - chose of shape and size (Slingshot example)

Size wise 13m Turbine or 13m Contra (lighter) for Loghtwind 9-10m Rally for regular 6-7m for high winds Go smaller size for proficient rider and steadier winds. Don't go 5m unless you're building 4-kite quiver like 5/7/10/13 or you're going to ride 40+ knots winds Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Y...
