Re: Shoulders Forward?

interesting would it not be easy to switch your feet from that position? You are already half way there... I am now using that stance(feet together snow ski style) but only in the right conditions, not rough water with swell as I struggle to find the right body position when sailing over-up and dow...

Re: how often do you hit fish?

5 weeks back whilst sailing in the deeper mid channel area between Flag beach and Lobos island (fuerteventura) two flying fish flew out just in front of me, this made me look down to see if anything was there, the water was crystal clear and deep blue apart from a 3 foot baby Hammerhead, it was only...

Hej Foil,

How far is your mast plate rear screws from the tail of your board on the 633?
On the T60 it is 25 cm from the rear bolt to the true back edge :thumb:

Re: Groove Skate

So it sounds like the straps are one size fits all. I ride in very different conditions requiring everything from 5mm booties to barefoot with big feet (12US/46EU). I usually ride with one front very loose strap but have plans to start jumping with 2 straps. Any chance some adjustable straps could ...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

when i get this flying foot switch tidied up and smooth looking then the flying tack is maybe next to try, although when i mentioned this to Gunnar 5 weeks back at Flag beach he gave one of those looks and asked why, he said they are crazy hard to do and only really needed if you want to race. and a...

Re: Corrosion on Aluminium parts (Moses fuselage)

I will chime in as a complete idiot. I have a 2016 Moses set up. The fuselage is painted. There is no sign what so ever of corrosion. Then they anodized the fuse. Why??? Probably cheaper. Painting required eching, painting with voc. Bla bla. Now anodizing is looking like bad choice. I work in consu...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

Firstly thanks to TomW for starting this thread, and then thanks to HaylingBilly for helping me crack this flipping tricky manoeuvre. I was up at 5am today as I could not sleep as it was on my mind, and I was visualizing what HaylingBilly had contributed. After warming up for an hour out at Newbroug...

Re: High Lift Wings like Moses 633 Onda: who is it for?

I have read a lot on this forum about the 633 wing and how you can ride in super low wind. No one has a 633 at my beach so I can not try it. I have only tried the 683 once, which compared to my 590 does have a lot more lift, so to compensate I had to ride with my back foot a few inches further forw...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

I still ride with two front straps because it makes the foot switch far less complex. I have tried three straps and have hurt myself in a crash so went straight back to two. I pump the foil slightly as i raise the kite, switch feet at the apex of the foil pump and concentrate on getting my hips tur...
