Re: Gin Marabou

Couple of foil guys at my beach have the Marabou 12 and the 6. Both are medium weight and use smallish wings around 600 cms area. The 12 sq m Marabou seems to work great from 6-7 up to 10-12 knots. The 6 from 12 up to 18. The relaunch in almost all cases looks very easy, nothing like a Peak or other...

How important is the weight of your bar and lines for light wind foiling?

Any insights from the technically minded into the importance of the weight of the bar (and lines) on performance of a kite specially in light wind (below 10 knots)? I see racers using very simple light weight carbon bars so I assume it makes a difference. But how much? If a light wind tube kite shav...

Neil Pryde Glide vs Cabrinha Varial / Carve

I've seen recent reviews of these two foil ranges from MACkiteboarding. Similar in area and aspect ratio, both made by the same or related companies, similar in price. Has anybody had a chance to ride both and is able to comment on any differences or advantages of either one? This is the Cabrinha: h...

Re: Kanaha Shapes review and other intermediate musings

No one has mentioned the Zeeko pocketboard that has standard tracks and decent looking rocker, length about 110 cms. Anyone tried it with a big wing?

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

The other thing to note is that the 633 and big wings that came from Surf and SUP line are a problem for the geometry of the fixed mast on the standard Moses boards. They require a big shift in center of gravity forward...beyond a standard footstrap location. If you are going to use them a lot then...

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: Blaster kitefoil by Zeeko (AVS)

@Zeeko Does anyone know if I can use a Zeeko green & white mast/ fuse/ stab with the blaster? You can use the mast of the W&G with the Blaster but the wings are not compatible. http://docs.zeeko-kiteboarding.com/docs/zeeko2017.JPG http://zeeko-kites.com/1255-large_default/alloy-blaster-2018.jpg a. ...

Re: Mystic Foil Seat Harness

Anyone tried the new Mystic seat harness for foiling? Unfortunately I bought one without paying close attention, thinking that it was a Mystic and pricey and I had bought a lot of their stuff before. In my opinion, after two sessions, this is the worst harness I have used, because: 1. No rings or o...
