The Gong SUP/surf wing is a revelation. So slow; toe-side and heel-side turns are trivially easy, especially with a fast inflatable kite. I feel like I've progressed more in 2 sessions than the previous 2 years: tacks, gybes seem within reach for the first time.

@James: Nice progression! I am considering it as well.
What is the mast position relative to your foot position? I believe you James use gong 65cm mast?
Any other reader experience using a surfhydrofoil on a 1m long mast? Any reason why that should be avoided?

@qba-epp11 you use Moses 90 mast. same questions for you. Does the foil require other foot positions than standard Moses kitefoils?

I use 2017 Fluente mast 93cm. Foot position is same than standard moses, only I moved mast position maximum rear.
When mast was in the middle of rails, power on the front leg was too much. Now is perfectly balanced :thumb:

I'm using a 65cm mast, and the mast is in the maximum rear position. Footstraps are in the middle (third in 5 holes). I still felt that there was a touch too much front foot pressure, so I moved the mast back another 2.5 cm by using a plate with holes that are not at the absolute rear of the the plate.

Just wondering whether you have considered adapting the Allvator front wing to your Moses fuselage ?
From what I’ve read these large wings should work with smaller stabs . Can the right fixing and zero angle of attack be achieved?
I do have the gong hellvator fuselage and potentially might give it a try .

No. In my opinion it's too complicated . The plan was to do it simply as possible

Good luck and wating for effects
