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.

Moses Havok?

So does anyone know something about when this will be released? Any reviews from people who have tested it? I need to order a new foil pretty soon and so have some decicsions to make. Also it seems the Havok wings have been available for a few months - can anyone comment on comparisons to the 637 se...

Re: Race Hydrofoil - initial sanding and maintenance

Good question, it is kind of a shame that there is not more sharing of info on this. I tried the rift method and did not like it, felt like it made the ventilations worse for me. But there are so many variables that it is hard to say what is best. Now I lightly sanded my 2018 Comet with 1200 and 200...

Re: Cabrinha AV8 Full Carbon Race Hydrofoil

Pretty much spot on Mossy. If the AV8 is as stiff as you say, then it should be a great foil at a decent price. Finally got back on my Moses Comet yesterday for the first time in a while after having been forced to ride alu (my son has been bogarting the Comet). So nice to be on a super stiff and qu...

Re: Cabrinha AV8 Full Carbon Race Hydrofoil

Sweeting looking foil, but I wonder if they will update the wingtips to flatten and put in some more twist like Moses, chubanga and ML have done. Seems to really help with the tip ventilation. It would seem that we now are close to the plateau of fast hydrofoil design and so anything you buy now wil...
