I think 950 will be really exciting wing for winging and replacement for 790/1100
Grigorib - Do you think that the new W950, if it has an area of 1450cm2, could be used as a light wind kite foil in the same way as the W790, or is the span too wide to be practical?

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Thanks for the reply drsurf. I actually managed a 2hr session on my friend's 3m Peak this arvo using 17m lines. About 17 - 26 kts. Interesting indeed. I answered my own question regarding it's suitability for tacking. It was fine, although It required some adjustment in the timing of the loop initia...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Reading Jyoder's post above, I have a question as a prospective 3m or 4m Peak4 owner. I currently foil strapless on a Moses W683s / S450 combo. I weigh 82kg. My smallest kite is a 6m Reo and my other kite is a 9m Hyperlink. I am an intermediate foiler and enjoy doing frequent and varying transitions...

Re: Spaceskate - it's limits?

Hi here. I have an Apollo 60 wing and have been using it for about 8 months. I have never used the Space Skate, so unfortunately can offer no comparison. My first SS wing was the was the original H5 (?) that was part of the Hoverglide set. The Apollo 60 is a great wing. Just like the Moses 633, it's...

Re: Learning to foil strapless from a surfing background

Yes, just do it. I've never used straps foiling from day 1. I started on the same set up as you - Hoverglide NF2 and Dwarf Craft 54". It was the heaviest, fastest sinking foil you could buy at the time. Within half and hour I managed a brief ride (2 or 3m) and was addicted. My avatar pic is actually...

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

I'm currently learning strapless roll tacks - about 5% success, and toe to heel tacks - about 40% success. Main problem with both is having the kite in a position where I am powered enough to foil through the exit. I just need to send it harder at the end I think. The cold weather / water in the Per...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

I tried the 633 with 450, 330 and 425 and for me the 425 works best. 450 is very nice but too much front foor for my pocket board (had to shim it then it is +- OK), 330 was too unstable for my liking (lot of pitch). 425 is in between, faster then 450 and perfectly balaced for the 633. My son rides ...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

I've just bought a 683s wing and want some advice on good stabs. I'm into strapless free riding and am an intermediate foiler. I tend not to do long runs and like to turn lots in a fairly small area - a Drexler wanna-be I guess. I like doing tacks (heel to toe and toe to heel), 360s etc. I weigh 82k...

Re: Slingy Apollo 2020 wing...

Does anyone know how the weight of the SS Apollo 60 compares to the Moses 633? I'm (178 lbs/80 kgs) using the SS H2 (Gamma) now with a LF Galaxy 4'2" board. I'm intermediate level freeride, can jibe reliably with down loops in both directions, like to jump, starting to work on duck tacks and foot s...

Re: Ozone Hyperlink v1 9m vs. Airush Ultra v2 10m vs. Repair an F-One Diablo

So first thing you should do is sell the race foil and buy a Gong. Or any other locally available 1000-1200cm2 foil. After doing some shopping, I found a local foiler selling a cloud9 s24 with 1126 cm2 front wing surface area for a good price. https://cloud9surffoils.com/collections/complete-foil-s...
