Re: Moses 2019-2020

I'm hoping your experience with 425 might mean I can get away from current mast position so far back from 645 wing. Inches now.

Re: Moses 2019-2020

So I tested 425 stabilizer with 679 wing today. 105cm mast. 710 fuselage. 36” board. 5m SST on 23m lines. Wind 14-18 knots First session was on 679 and shimmed 450 as a base/benchmark. Second on 679 and 425. I’ve been riding 695/420 for two weeks in January and rode 695/425 on local lake last week ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

IMO its crazy they recommend the 50cm bar. I ride 60 and yes it will make a difference on responsiveness. It won't make much difference on bar pressure though. You might also look at your line lengths and make sure all is in order.

Re: Drone's 2020

I have had a Mavic for over 2 years. Have a lot of RC experience and photography is a big hobby. I got it as a way of getting different perspectives for photography. The below might seem negative but its the truth. Just my 2c I can fly it and penetrate into the wind up to 20 kts but you must do prop...

Re: Moses 637 Review

Having a 637 or 645 and a 633 or 679/683 is a great spread. Having a 590 in the middle will mean you will never touch it. IMO you need extremes in the wing quiver....carvy slow play in the waves, 679. Blast around with effortless glide and that slick fast feeling and charging upwind, covering tons o...

Re: Moses 683 compared to 679 confusion I meant

Already been said....I have compared them and could not spot a single difference....maybe very slightly different radius on the wing tips but that was it from every angle

Re: Woo Screen App - real time jump display on a phone

I just published a new version of Woo Screen app with a lot of new features :D . It will take a while before Google releases it to the public (they say they are much slower due to the virus), but look out for version v0.70. There are so many new things, that it will take a few posts to describe the...

Re: extend the low end; single skin, cloud, foil kite?

the drift launch and low wind foil don't go together well. I drift launch frequently with Souls but well up into their wind range. The extra weight of wet fabric isn't an issue in those cases. Your best bet is dry launch as it opens lots of options. even a really light LEI will be an issue to roll o...

Re: ventilation

Racers use 110-115 cm masts because of this. But a 100 cm will do fine for most non-racers also, and a better compromise I would say. The Mike's Lab Bullet 3 which is to this date the most widely used race foil by the top guys has a strut/mast of only 103 cm ;) Almost all of the the newest race foi...

Re: Foil Gybe Advice

You can try another type of gibe: the pivot-gibe, starting at very high upwind angle. This one worked for a person in your case sticking at the classic downwind gibe... 1- you go upwind the max you can, kite low 2- when it is so close to the wind it will slow down and just before you start loosing ...
