Re: Shorter board is less playful...!

I went from a 120cm board to a 37" Kanaha Shapes (94cm) and I can assure the turning speed and versatility is way better on the small board. I had to fix this front foot pressure though (Moses 633 with 450 stab) or the KS was unridable. With the 425 stab (no shim) the balance is perfect but 450 is b...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I ride them with the Pinxto bar and it works great. Even though it works with any bar, the FEELING is much greater with a light (minimalistic?) bar IMO. Same with Clouds. And I understand the connect bar is lighter (840gr) then most other bars (like the click bar for instance which is very heavy) af...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I ride Clouds 10,4/8/6,2/4,8 and soon 3,7 and really like these kites, for me it is the best kite for general foiling (freeride, freestyle,waves) I also bought a peak 5m to see and although I first was sceptical (fluttering, tiny confortable wind range, f*$% briddle) I had a few magic sessions in th...

Re: shimming Moses 633

could find a 425 this afternoon and had a try this evening and indeed it is an excellent stab for the 633. Feels as fast as the 330 (I mean same glide) but much more stable (pitch). Not as stable as the 450 but still enough for a comfy ride and enough lift to make foot switch easy(er)

Re: Unhooked foiling

Hi kit3surfer. I get the impression you might not have unhooked before. Learning this stuff while foiling is likely a fair bit harder because your more likely to outrun the kite and slackline. At the very least I suggest you play around a bit on an empty, wide open beach like in this video before y...

Re: shimming Moses 633

Guys, isn't the 425 an older model? Can't find it anywhere (in Europe)

I ride the 450, don't like the 330 not stble enough for me.

I ride a 120 board and a 37'' KS (94cm). I put a shim and problem solved.

Riding a bigger board and standing more at the front IS NOT a solution for me

Interesting thread!
Does it make sense to install a bar stopper between the bar and the QR for unhooked foiling?
makes sense so you can move it up a little bit instead of trimming before unhooking
i will try a slingshot one (with pin) and put it upside down and see if it stays in place

Re: Unhooked foiling

isn't wave kitefoiling unhooked with peak and a 1500 wing an alternative to wingfoiling?
