Onda 633 with smaller SS Dwarfcraft board?

Postby kriskris » Sat Jul 28, 2018 11:53 pm

So I read so much about Onda 633 that I am thinking about getting it for my ocean sessions in small surf. I ride older foil with smaller 42 inch Slingshot dwarfcraft board. I read about increased foot pressure hence my question: is this combination going to work or will I have to get different board? thanks, Kris

I ride the short DC with the 633 wing. It's great! It needs to go ALL the way back. My buddy also rides this same setup.

Fun

Works fine for me. 633 and 42” Dwarfcraft 2016. Pedestal is set to “4” mark on the board

I have been riding the 590 on the DC 3'6". I ride it at around 3 to 4 at back of pedestal. I ride strapless. I am getting a new GW 91 v2 with 633. Where should I mount it? I read Oregon kiter said put it all the way back. Is that far enough?
I ask because I wont get chance to ride before Baja. Will I need to go back further? I had to drill my GW 91 pedestal for my other board that only has mount holes. Not sure I will need to do this, just looking for feedback.

2016/2017/2018 Dwarfcrafts are different in regard of kicker and tracks position. I ride strapless with my rear foot big toe over back mast plate bolt (with 590). With 633 I move the mast back by 1” so my back foot stands right over rear mast plate bolt.

Hi Kriskris,

Don’t forget if you mount the Onda 633 as far back as possible and there’s still too much front foot pressure then you can always Shimm the Mast / Fuselage connection .

It’s easy to do and reduces the front pressure .

You might not need to go full way back with the mast. With 633 on 2016 Dwarfcraft 42” I set mine this way and I still have 1.5” space to move the mast back

Grig. Awesome the photo is the 633? That is where I ride my 590 on 2019 DC 3'6". Tells me I will be fine without shimming and if I do need to go back I can?

Check out these photos of me on the 633 for foot position. Downwind I'm about 100mm more forward with front foot. I have the 2016 fluente mast that sweeps back 50mm.
