Re: Moses Onda 633 SUP combo - Track inserts?

Hi some help on this subject please. Im just about to buy for my first foil a 2017 fluente with a T40 board and 550 wing. Im ordering an onda 633 set up to use for learning on. Does anyone know how much it costs roughly to have foil mount tracks put in? You should get the 2019 T38 board. I had a T4...

Re: Moses 2019

After using the 2016 Moses fluente with 550-590 and 633 wings for over 200 hours over 2 years, I have put it through 4 international flights, and many groundings, both scaping off the bottom and ramming into sand banks at high speed. I even snapped a board in half in one grounding. I highly recommen...

Re: Goove Skate foilboard, durability and build quality

You should contact the builder. I'm sure they want to know about it and it will help them improve. Considering the amount of boards they build and very few complaints, sounds like they are doing it right.
A delamination is not something you want to live with. Needs to be fixed.

Re: Foils that don’t sink. How much of a problem is it

Agree with PF. At first I thought foil floating on its side was good. Now I'm not too happy about it.

Re: Kite for hydro foiling in weak winds + flight position

Peter, I'd like to hear more about your experience with the CA Pulsion 15. Regis says it would be good replacement for my Sonic 2 13m. I just want to freeride . Need to complement my Hyperlink 9, which works from 5+ M/s. So looking for 4-7ms range Sonic 2 13 works in that range. Not riding in under ...

Re: Kite for hydro foiling in weak winds + flight position

I was out Saturday in light wind. The computers and observation was saying that it was 5ms. There were no white caps at all. Another guy was on speed 21 and me on a Sonic 2 13m, 20 m lines , 80 kg+ 6/5 wetsuit , Moses 633 on 105cm board. In the beginning I had to get timing just right to get out of ...

Re: Pocket board building

Wow, nice shop!! What a dream to have those facilities. Nice looking board. If I can make a suggestion. since you have the wood working skills, to add a thin wooden rail before bagging the skins. Then you'll have a full wood look. I'm heading in this direction. giving up on using surfboard blanks. T...

Re: Do you need some rocker at tail of board

What I mean by tail rocker is not " tail kick," . It is the rocker from 1/3 up from tail to the tail. The foil is mounted on that curve.

Re: Do you need some rocker at tail of board

Slowboat, Look at the groove skate. Or the Ketos boards. They have public acclaimed good rocker curves for a wide variety of foils ( at least the groove skate). The Ketos been around a awhile and look great. I've built 5 foilboards and making 2 more now, and this is my own thinking ( hypothesis). I ...
