Re: Swap Gong Allvator & Moses Fluente

I'm using a 65cm mast, and the mast is in the maximum rear position. Footstraps are in the middle (third in 5 holes). I still felt that there was a touch too much front foot pressure, so I moved the mast back another 2.5 cm by using a plate with holes that are not at the absolute rear of the the pla...

Re: Swap Gong Allvator & Moses Fluente

The Gong SUP/surf wing is a revelation. So slow; toe-side and heel-side turns are trivially easy, especially with a fast inflatable kite. I feel like I've progressed more in 2 sessions than the previous 2 years: tacks, gybes seem within reach for the first time.

Re: Swap Gong Allvator & Moses Fluente

I have the Gong wing and a 65cm mast. The wing is huge, but will foil at very low speed. Top speed feels slow but “fast enough”. Foil breaches on the 65cm mast are mostly saveable - I’m not used to anything less than 90cm. The alloy fuselage and mast is heavy, certainly compared to my old Horue H13 ...

Re: Possible Hydrofoil sale scam

I was scammed on ikitesurf. Lost a lot of money for an imaginary board.

I’m afraid I’d avoid all sellers on that site, unless you can look them in the eye or confirm identity

Re: Moses 2018

Can anyone measure the hole separation for Moses front kite wings, such as the 548?

Additionally, does anyone on this thread (e.g. TomW) have a 590 or 548 that they are not using and might want to sell? Feel free to DM me.

Thanks,
James

Re: The New 2018 Airush Core Foil Series Out Now

Would be interested to see a proper analysis of this, but torsion results in shear forces around a central point, doesn’t it? And for shear forces, more material away from the centre will result in lower stress and therefore lower strain. Compare the torsional displacement of a solid rod compared to...

Re: Hung Vu, a kitesurfing pioneer, how did he help you?

I think he had a diary about learning, and he described how he started sailing in a closed bay but was unable to escape it. Then one day the wind was stronger (for his 2-line kite) and he was able to go upwind more - and then for the first time he could sail beyond the bay. An epiphany. My own exper...
