Re: Advice for New Slingshot Dwarcraft 2021

the smaller the better
i have a 37 inch board and it feels like i could go smaller
everyone who transitioned to a smaller board got used to it in no time

Moses shared setup for wind wing and kite

Hi, I would like to buy a moses setup for kite that can be upgraded (if possible) to a wind wing setup in the future ideally by adding only a front wing. Is it possible without a significant compromise when I'll want to learn this new sport? For kiting I'm aiming at either 633 or 790 as I ride waves...

Re: position strapless board with just legs - no hands.

Just give it some practice, you will be amazed how hands on the board are not needed once the board is down wind. It's a bit surprising so it may be hard to imagine for you. Just pull the bar a bit and the legs will adjust the board.

I can't sleep the night before a day of kiting. It seriously sucks! Too amped to ride and really restless nights leaves me tired before the day even starts.
Same with powder days snowboarding.
Me too. Any cure?

I‘m struggling to decide what would be a better 2 kite UFO quiver for Foil/Surf:

9m + 7m, 9m + 5m or 7m + 5m?

80kg
12-16knots = 80%
16-24knots = 18%
24knots = 2%
9 and 5
9 from 12 knots to 16
5 from 16 to 23
I use 3 kites to cover this range

Re: Turbulence while riding

Sounds like waves traveling through water is affecting lift/drag. Try smooth conditions and you'll notice the difference. Your brain will soon learn to automatically compensate so it'll be less annoying
