Re: Moses 2019-2020

Hi Tom, I prefer 111 for all types of riding. everything is easier as the wing is rarely going to breach in tacks, gybes and riding thru waves. You would get used to the longer mast within 20 minutes of riding. if you look at the videos of the Slingshot team rider Fred Hope it seems he chooses the l...

Re: IKA SNAFU

I think it is a complex issue with alot of nuance. most Olympic sports are moving away from one design / single provider monopoly - as you get monopoly prices and still alot of variance in the product due to lax manufacturing. so team s with money buy lots of sets of the gear and then pick the best ...

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

And yes the humming can be coming from any or all of the trailing edges both mast and wings and tip of fuse

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

Hi Tom, it is 100% the trailing edges that need to be squared. Don’t bother to sand the top of the wings or the sides of the mast. It might take 3 or 4 attempts at sanding and riding before the ringing gets cured, just keep at it

Re: Tuttle box

So maybe there is some chatting and distractions from the other foil homies while setting up and packing down. But the question is: is putting the Tuttle box setup together for each session a pain? Also for say 3 sessions a week do you get a lot of wear and tear from the assembly/ disassembly?

Tuttle box

Currently I use a plate mount and it takes probably 10 to 15 minutes per session to bolt and unbolt to the board for transport in my car. If I move to a Tuttle connection will this become a PITA? Do I need to buy a van as well so I can leave it connected? Would like to hear your experiences. Thanks!

Re: Fastest Foil Combo (To beat AC 75)

In the video it seems to be a drag race on a reach or broad reach where the top speeds of the AC cats is definitely higher. However I am much more interested in the performance around a windward leeward course where VMG is the key. The AC cats don’t seem to have great angles upwind whereas the best ...

Re: Moses Havok?

Hi kitehard,

Thanks for sharing, very useful info. Do you think the havok mast is thinner than the comet mast say at the midpoint? I think the comet mast is around 13.5mm ish. Also how is the speed downwind?

Re: Levitaz bionic vs Moses Comet?

I own the the 2018 Comet and also owned the 2017 Comet previously. The 2018 wings are a big improvement over 2017, very easy to ride and push hard. I think the Comet is plenty fast enough for the weekend racer. I also tried the Levitaz with the small tail wing and long fuse, it was fast but I felt o...

Re: Soul 12m, what line lengths for HF (strapless), pls?

I have been using 15m lines excluding the depower and leader lines. 15m is long enough for looping in light wind but short enough for tacks when the wind picks up a bit.
