Re: Best Sab wing combo for making my 360’s?

For previous w800 commenter.

W790 should fit same fuselage as 633. 790 is surf/sup/wing frontwing so I guess it should be better in qualities you are after.

Go to kiteforum w790 thread to ask more from experts there.

Re: sonic 2 18m for light wind foiling

Soul 10m is not build as light wind kite but as a high wind boosting kite with structural endurance. True that with foiling we misuse (many) kite's original design intention, Soul = TT boosting durable kite with easy step-in from LEI side. I always talk here @KF about the force impulse to get riding...

Re: Moses 790 wings

There is a lot of comparing 633 and 790 speed-wise. On Moses/Sab site TOPSPEED:

W633: 7/10
W790: 8/10

Are the scales the same or what to believe? You stating 633 is faster or Sab site saying 790. I've both wings but I am not driving as fast as I can go so don't know about stabile/rideable topspeed.

Re: Beginner question on bar pressure

I made a quick simplified sketch taking everything very simple and 1D. But maybe with it we can understand bar pressure (design) points. The imagined attachment points are just sort of force transfer avg leverage points compared to lift. And actual IRL leverages are 3d shapes and lift is 3d too etc....

Re: peak 13 vs chrono/hyperlink 13's

As my personal experience I can easily go with Sonic3-15 on Moses 633 when Speed4-10lotus stops getting me on top of foil board. I'd say Peak4 5m and 10m Lotus are quite similar in low wind range but I've never actually compared them head-to-head because I usually go to beach, select my kite and rid...

Re: Light Wind Help

One option could be 2nd hand cheap foilboard set as you already are a surfer. As price example I sold my Liquid force foil fish set (still very useable) last year to a student for 420 euros which is 500 usd level. Totally fine kit for learning and light wind with a kite can get you top of board. If ...
