Re: Hydrofoiling: Why you need a short mast - Foil Fridays

I started with 90cm mast, then moved to 105cm, then added 71cm to the mix, tried 24"/28"/30"/36"/15" and 16" masts so far My opinion - long mast is the way to go. For large bodies of shallow water like OBX/SPI you want to have an additional, short mast. The 71cm (and anything shorter) felt a bit to...

Re: Hydrofoiling: Why you need a short mast - Foil Fridays

Here’s my current set - 105/91/80 I didn't know that Slingshot/ Moses did a 105cm carbon mast? I thought it was only 91cm / 101cm / 111cm ? Or was 105cm an old size which isn't available anymore? Original Slingshot Ghost Whisper with 545 (558) wing and 328 (330) stabilizer was marked as 42” and it’...

Re: Xr5 15m lightwind? Or

Depending on your weight. 15m Turbine 2015 on 30/37m lines paired with 170x50cm Flydoor5 was my best lightwind option for my 200 lbs. Well structured and at 8.8 lbs kite weight it allowed to dive it hard and loop with power, unlike flaccid, less structured, though lighter wings. Then I started foili...

Re: Levitaz Cruizer vs Moses Onda

Consider to mount 41/61/71/91/101/111cm masts and 633/683s/790/873 wings on Moses setup and more cool stuff coming from them continuously is pretty exciting

Re: Levitaz Cruizer vs Moses Onda

The Cruizer is 989 sq.cm the Moses 633 is 1235 sq.cm (but you can opt out for 683s which is 1005 sq.cm) The Cruizer is thinner wing with smaller/thinner stabilizer and would have better high end The Cruizer is swept back significantly and is more seaweed-prone than 683s (but comparable to 633) The C...

Re: Nick Jacobsen - Another great idea

I think the point of the video is Nick's personality meeting North brand.
I'm not an expert on North but someone would zoom in and know if it's an old model or a prototype.

Re: Moses 2019

Ok, so I ordered Vorace 101FR 590/330 as cruising/jumping setup and separately 683/483 on 710 fuse as freeride setup. And T38 board. With my approaching 100kg the package should be great. Very excited. make sure that you have 683 s on that order, not 683 (which is incompatible with surf fuselage). ...

Re: Moses 2019

last Friday, while wind forecast was crap but turned out to count for a riding day, on the West side of Real slick I ran into bunch of foilers. Met Brook from Tampa, FL on 9m Ozone and 633/483/91 and we swapped foils for 15 minutes so he rode mine 683s/710/450 and I got back on 633. It was interesti...
