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.

Re: Foil Riding stance, bean pole vs poo stance

#1, but actually a proper onewheel stance. Feet closer together highlights the center balance point of the foil and really opens up the whole interaction. I had super wide stance for so long and moved to smaller boards and then realized that by narrowing stance, the ride was being transformed. Now I...

Re: has anyone changed their neo to knots, not pullies

Interesting that you have moved to low V assuming from the recommended Y.

I have had years experience on Neos and every time I switched from Y to V I noticed a lack of crispness in the turning response.

Also curious for what happens if pulleys eliminated

Re: moses 633 VS 590

My experiences: Been on 633 exclusively for 2 years. 90kg and 4 years foiling. Loved the 550 for 5 sessions, then tried 590. Loved that for 5, then came 633. I never went back. Now I’m trying 590 again, for curiosity and struggling. Temperatures are cold so new is not easy. I think the 633 corrupted...
