Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

You are right, probably most foils have a tad of negative stabilizer lift even when front wing is riding at zero lift angle of attack (which is never zero degrees btw, but unimportant for the discussion). So it could be that some has so little rear stab negative lift, that you hardly notice lift cha...

Re: Raising the rocker

so the shim helps a lot, mimics the front foot higher like a wake skate, touchdowns aren't as good thou, I suspect cause of the shim...either way its a lot better A bit confused, do you prefer to have your front foot higher BECAUSE you have gotten used to it now? I noted your first post: "Anyone sh...

Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

Hmmm, interesting, apparently absolutely no consensus about what will work here, or in general :roll: With my big wings 800 and 1200 cm2, I have never experienced the foil seeking to "lift" out of the water, not at higher speed nor when dropping down a waveface (but havent used both in really big wa...

Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

I don't understand how these guys can keep up with this wave just fine on regular surfboards doing lots of carving turns that slow them down but you can't keep up with it on a fast foil. I don't understand that either. It does not make sense to me either :roll: Maybe it is because you are more inte...

Re: Moses Onda with a smaller stabilizer?

Has anyone tried moses onda with 330 stabilizer...? Any review...? It will work, it is not rocket science, just a matter of how small you want to go personally so choose the size you want. As at some point it might feel too lively and difficult for most, and a few can ride without the stab :thumb: ...

Re: Over-powered on big wings

Finding that the 633 is like a jack hammer up into the feet when overpowered...especially on ratty frontal winds with wide ranges...been on a 5m a lot this winter in 25+ knot winds... Just ordered up the 683...anyone move down in wing size for this reason? Hmmm, yes indeed. But I think your issue i...

Re: Q-powerline suppliers in EU

Q line has two advantages: 1. You can simply tie a knot and make lines or adjustments in no time, or shorten lines - awesome :thumb: 2. On the ground if rugged, they can withstand abuse and shells and rocks a lot more, so the risk of breaking them is minimal, compared :thumb: The disadvantages (in m...

Re: Raising the rocker

Anyone shim their board to raise the nose rocker? I’ve been using a wake skate board for the past couple of months, the aggressive rocker made my front foot higher like a ketos board and I got so used to it for strapless crap in the surf until is broke. Now going back to my production board I’m pea...
