Re: Mast position on Armstrong board

I have used the 1850 underpowered kiting & prefer it moved it forward on my t38 board. My back foot seems happiest over the rear half of the mast.

Re: Board Size Guidance

Not intending to skew off topic...
I am also located in FL & considered one of these setups, but concerned after reading about heat-related issues like eps off-gassing & delaminating.
Is there certain board construction that may hold up better in the higher heat areas?

Re: Off Grid Sports boards

Many of the Moses boards use a thru-board attachment, although not tracked like those.
The front strap placement appears a bit crowded to me, perhaps a photo perspective issue.

Re: Kite Foil for Beginner

i don't care for the flexibility of some no-volume boards
the pairing of flotation in a larger volume front wing w/ the board to be semi-neutral buoyant seems almost impossible to accomplish shopping online
i personally prefer the wing to be able to sink into the water for ease of recovery

2mm quicksilver highline is my fave - nice thin sole (i think they get rebranded)

Re: Moses w800

I forgot about the W800 being mounted on a different fuselage. I'd be interested to know whether this affects the mast mounting position. I had the mast mounted in the forward (kite fuselage) position, I forgot actually, but the pic posted previously shows this. I agree it was likely a 2017 era mast

Re: Moses w800

Yes lost. Did dive after it w/ gear w/in a few hours but unable to locate it due to weekend boat traffic making the search too risky. I am ~180#, but the rider when this happened is ~220#. I had ridden it for a dozen sessions on the 91cm & this was the first time attached to the 101. Unfortunate, as...

Can you snap a picture of the section? What’s inside?
Still about 70cm left if someone wanted to make a short mast..

Re: Moses w800

an older 101 vorace w/ a 220# rider (I watched it happen)
apparently there have been generational changes to the core w/ newer ones being stronger
the w800 was one of the most enjoyable wings I have riden, bolt it to something stronger than I did
