Re: Levitaz Cruizer vs Moses Onda

My observations: the Levitaz mast has more flex. I felt that the Cruiser wing was more reactive to wave action vs the onda. It's also a heavy rig, water-starting strapless would be difficult vs the floaty Moses. The Levitaz build feels much more substantial/durable.

Re: The Duotone Wing

I watched w/ amusement as someone attempted to use this type of wing a couple weeks ago. It was not successful.
Able to stand, but every time they attempted to use the wing to generate power; it looked like the wing-tip dipped to low & essentially ran over it w/ the board.

Re: Rollerbone

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.
