Re: A fix for the loose screw Moses Fuselage to Mast

I just put downward pressure on front wing as I’m finishing tightening that screw. It seems to stay secure by doing this as it’s not loose after session.

Re: Los Barriles

Thanks for responses

Foiling has led me to radically rethink kite locations. And I think Los Barriles May indeed resurface as a front runner

Specifically swell riding. La Ventana seems to be shielded from swell and with higher winds.
And is Buena Vista any good for foiling?

Any info appreciated

Re: Moses 2019

I swapped out the stabilizer that comes with Onda set up to the 325.

Wow!

I moved mast 3 cm forward on 110cm strapless Grooveskate. I have 2 sessions on it. Unbelievable turning and freedom. My tacks are now adjusting. Sitting is more challenging to get pitch under control but that’s coming along.

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

It’s so sad. I used to rent both those houses. By far the nicest launching in the area.

And what about preserving the integrity of the shipwreck?

Re: Goove Skate foilboard, durability and build quality

Upon closer inspection I noticed the area of delamination is the skin (pvc ?) from the layer underneath it. It separates 1-2 mm and seems to be only in 10-15 cm circular area around mast tracks toward the forward end. The screws and t nuts have not damaged the tracks in any way. The board is green a...

Re: Goove Skate foilboard, durability and build quality

I love my grooveskate! But, I’ve noticed the middle area might be delaminating within. It seems to be able to be compressed about 3mm and returns (rebounds) immediately. Also, I’ve noticed it retains a bit of water after a session. It drains out over short time period. Now I’m worried it may fail, l...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Has anyone tried just taking stabilizer off and riding with front wing on the fuselage?

I’m riding Moses 633 Onda on pocket board. Watching Oyvind’s tight carving abilities has me looking for more freedom to really swivel that foil around.
