The common name/brand in the US for that is the Indo board

Let's not confuse large wings (with lower take-of and stall speeds) with thick wings which are slow and draggy.
I felt the thicker-style large wing got overpowered by the kite easier, as it was incapable of the acceleration/speed.

Re: Hydrofoil mast position in relation to front wing?

All the way back for the initial ride is typical. Ride the board, not the foil = step 1.
You will likely slide it forward an inch or 2 later to find the happy balance point.
Wing size comes in to play as well. Larger is usually placed more rearward.

Re: 2017 Slingshot Turbine in smaller sizes

I've picked up a few of those on closeout myself.
Only had a chance to use the 7m on foil in 15 to 25mph. Initially it was a handful compared to the sst's i i typically use. 2nd round was boosting fun.
I'd say the 7 when it powered felt more like my 9m.

Re: Moses Onda with a smaller stabilizer?

The overall size difference between the 633/483 & 590/330 combos are significant(1/2 the sq cm size essentially).
I'm ~190#, and was looking to add a bit of surface area & stability to the 590. Felt this was accomplished w/ the 483 stab while still feeling nimble.

Re: Moses Onda with a smaller stabilizer?

I also experimented w/ the 633/330 combo, didn't care for it.
What I really like is the 590 w/ 483.

Re: Liquid Force Galaxy sharp nose - safety issue

After a fall, I consciously pause before looking back to the board.

Re: Foil board as directional? Anyone tried it?

The earlier version aa sure looks similar to the quad fin alien twister...
Since you already have the board, i don't see the harm in experimentng.

Re: Moses 2019

I've had a few sessions on the red T38/633 combo. Loving the new board, feels like they were made for each other. No hesitation to recommend it.
Noticed a minor change w/ 8 plate mounting holes vs original 6. Makes me wonder if the board could be drilled again later for an additional adjustment.

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

WOW thats forward foot placement on a dwarf....never rode that far forward on the Onda....wonder how much lift that has compared to the 633.... That wing is ~1600+ sq cm, vs ~1200 sq cm on the 633. Very noticeable increase when riding. I demo'd it bolted onto a cabrinha board & had a heck of a time...
