Re: Wing+mountainboard

Surface resistance is key factor. I’ve tried mountain board on grass and snow board on snow. Very particular for surface conditions to be smooth compared to using kite for sustained initial pull to get going. Parking lot/asphalt with skate board is soooo much easier. Can have blast in 0-12mph as it ...

Re: Wingfoil boom or handles?

Well I’m new to winging as about most of us are. I have 6m Echo as first wing. Then progressed to Armstrong 3.5,4.5,5.5 and his mini boom attachment shown above. With cold weather gloves on it is nice to have that bar to grab mid transition and then fine adjust. Flying one handed is much easier than...

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

I have same board and foil. I can water start hands free almost every time. Get the board on its side if not already there. Position feet on board (I’m strapless) and as kite moves you will have downward pressure increase through feet to keep them where placed. It really helps to have kite pulling e...

Re: question for ex-Wainman kite riders

I loved my rabbits and they’re flying. Did not like dark colors cause of heat issues. I moved to red religions next and loved those but lacked overhead lift to assist in moves. Then moved on to Neos and have been consistently impressed with they’re reliable precision. Seems to be the best of my expe...

Re: Need winging advise

I agree with bragnouff. I’m 200 on 99L Armstrong with same wing as you. I’m like 2-3 sessions ahead of you. Have foiled both directions when on flat to small chop and 15-20 knots, one session. Then same set up in 25+ knots and huge swell of 6 feet—VERY difficult. First of these I used “tripod” techn...

Re: Mast position on Armstrong board

Arggh,

I just realized I was using +1 shim and probably should have the 0 degree on for learning!

That explains the way the foil felt underfoot as I was getting board speed up.

Hopefully can try today

Mast position on Armstrong board

I’m 3 sessions new to winging. I’m 90kg and have been kitefoiling for 5 years. Flying Ozone Wasp 5m on Armstrong 99l board with 85cm mast on 1850HS foil with 232HS stab. Wind was patchy with few gusts to upper teens, but only lasting few, precious seconds. I’m able to water start to standing and the...

Re: Shorter board is less playful...!

Back to OP, I find smaller is so much more livelier with very little if any downside. On 633 Onda with 325 stab (forget this shim business or riding original stab) I have plenty of room for stance. Narrow or even wide, there is room. The only downside I see is my gibes need to be way more near perfe...

Re: Moses fuselage to mast screws keeps coming loose

Easy solution. Tighten both and then push down (board and foil are upside down) on front leading edge of front wing. As you do this, tighten the front screw a bit more. This always keeps both my screws nice and tight.
