Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

I mean shimming the w590 - s330 for a slower speed, would it be a good way to make it easier to control?

Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

Lots of good advice, thanks!

Tom, yes the R1V2 9m is in my mind a great next kite.

I just remebered that shimming the foil is a thing, maybe its possible to make more lift (more front foot weight) to slow the foil down? Is that a good idea to make it more user friendly?

Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

For freeride as said, take the 71 as much better for learning, and you wont outgrow it in some conditions where needed. Kites, you dont write anything about your current kites? The Soul 8 m2 would be just perfect for "most" I think. It is quite "strong" compared to more race oriented kites, so if y...

Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

I just thought it's easier to learn with a kite thats "slower". Because im really in the learning process still. well it would be great if moses made a bigger foil wing for the kite fuselage. Too get onda is like getting a new kite. Then I'll maybe continue with the speed4 lotus 12m and get a smalle...

Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

My weight is around 80kg at the moment trying to get down to 75. I want one kite that allow me to foil without being overpowered in 14 -16 knots and able to foil in 18 maybe 20 would be cool, then also use it in around 20 to 28 knots on a twintip. maybe this is way to much to ask from one kite. Or m...

Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

Hi I would like to hear what kites/masts you foilers at the forum think is great for an easy progression on my foil. Mast: 61 vs 71 cm mast (learning on the moses 590 wing) im thinking the 71 is still usable in shallow water after learning to foil and that the 61 its just a struggle to not ventilate...

Re: Foil Kite tuning tips

I Think that you can fix most problems with the first 2 videos. However if your kite still handles poorly you need to check the whole bridle. I made a short video of this. Sorry about the poor quality and bad english. https://youtu.be/93Te2HGlXwY Thanks for this great information! I saw your video ...

Re: Sonic FR 11 Long Mixer Test

Now I have ended up at: a1(0), b1(80mm shorter), c1(60mm shorter), br1(150mm longer). I have pretty much run out of adjustment on C-Main, so I suspect the C pulley will be running up against the knot in C-Pulleyline with my bar pushed away; but for the kite to be so much more usable its worth it to...

Learning process - onda or 590? (Moses gear)

Hi Im new to foiling and still positive about it, hoping for a not too long learning curve :D I just got a new hydrofoil with board, Vorace 101 with a 558 wing, 330 stab and a the board is a Groove kiteboard. First time out I was at a hydrofoil course and got to try the onda 633 with a 60cm mast. Af...
