Re: Kite for hydro foiling in weak winds + flight position

I meant smaller Turbine, comparing 9m Turbine to 9m Rally. The Turbine is highter aspect laid over the Rally. I’d much rather foil with lower aspect kite because it stalls less in LW and loops in more controlled manner. I didn’t enjoy foiling with 15m Turbine and 14m Rally. Doable but in toeside kit...

Re: Foils that don’t sink. How much of a problem is it

Have the 633. It doesn’t sink. Bodydragging is not a big deal, strapless waterstarts are ok with either that or fast-sinking aluminum foils.
Rides heavenly. If I sell it I’ll just get myself a new one, just as I did last time :)

Jim, what about 81cm mast and between-590-and-633 wing mountable onto 647 fuselage?

Looks a little cold to go down and get in the water. How long until spring?

Re: Kite for hydro foiling in weak winds + flight position

High aspect kites (Turbine) sit close to edge of the wind window. They go upwind great, generate almost unmanageable looping power, relaunch less easy. I loop my kite a lot in lightwind starts so it might not be best choice. Lower aspect kite would loop more friendly and might relaunch better. In my...

Re: Why isn't sliding rope bar more prevalent?

I jumped with a rope just one session and that felt so damn weird I'm back to ride hook with TT. I prefer a fixed connection point when I'm up in the air since there's bar movement needed and I don't want to bother thinking whether I moved myself on the rope holding the bar or whether I moved the ba...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

Youtch, Some of the best reviews I have found are on a German language web sight. I don't speak German but this works. ... ... From the German test the Moses Onda 633 rides about the same as the space skate but at a different position in the track, the HG is heaver on the walk to the water. Well, I...

Re: 633 vs. 683 what I found

Can someone comment on weight of 683s? I'm concerned I might end up with early, heavier version of the wing (just like earlier 633 weighed 200 grams more than current version) Ok , good and bad news, Good first. The 683 wing weighs in much less than the 633, mine delivered today is 665g, My lighter...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

hey grigorib what "macgyver it to aluminum hoverglide mast" is that you have in your picture? Is that Stringys? it's not my picture. It's from Moses 2018 thread. Guy did sand down the mast and modified fuselage holes a bit. https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=1016733#p1016733 Stringys looks prett...
