Re: does mast position change with board size and weight ?

absolutely it does and it can be quite a bit. All about center of gravity as it relates to stable flat flight. Extra weight out to the nose has quite a large lever effect, heck, even moving your melon head forward and backward will change the weight distribution.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

haha thanks -- i appreciate the input! i was able to ride my buddy's 15m on 14m lines today, immediately after riding my 10m on 17m lines. I could make the 10m work but there was a fair bit of looping to get going. the 15 was awesome. i felt juiced, but in control. sensor read 8-9 knots. well there...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I've been loving my 6m and 10m on a ~590 equivalent (medium aspect) foil with 17m lines. I'm 70kg. If I were to go one size bigger, would you suggest 12m or 15m? I'm worried the 12m isn't enough of a jump over the 10 but that the 15m will be too much. Maybe 15m with even shorter lines? If it matter...

Re: Does weight matter?

The only negative of a light foil is that they float. If the board floats on its side then it can sail along crosswind without you. If you have fallen then you have to drag back upwind to get back to the board. On the plus side, the foil is less likely to scoot off downwind away from you. This only...

Re: Is the Slingshot Hoverglide Foil a Good Beginner Foil?

Anyone have experience teaching/ learning on it? Very good...with the elimintator board with track all the way to the rear I had two people up (good kite skills already) in first sessions on 24" mast. It is however, extremely heavy especially with the full length mast. Hey, cwood. What's the elimin...

Re: Best Foil for Absolute Beginner?

slingshot hoverglide on 24" mast and eliminator (long) board with mast to rear of tracks. Anyone with decent kite skills can be popping onto the wing in one good session. Tough as nails as well, no real sharp edges but heavy!

Re: New Moses 645/425 race set up

I would enjoy hearing any feedback or reviews. Curious as to the difference in riding feel between this and it’s predecessor 637/420 which I find to be a great high performance race/freestyle set up. Thanks! I love my 637 but have ordered the new Havok wings. They look lower AR which is interesting...
