Re: Who's (still) riding fast foils?

Re: Injury in the hand, first sesion foiling! Just be aware!

That injury can also happen from a blunt strike especially when skin is soft from being in the water for a bit. I had my ankle sliced open deeply from a foil two years ago. The surgeon was pretty sure the skin was split open--like a strike from boxing--vs sliced open. Told me that soaked skin can te...

Maybe don't post on nwkite... Signed, 57 year old kiter and skier that hopes to be shredding at 80 and beyond like s...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

the 450 gives a bit more surf-feel to the front wing, and yes more front foot foot pressure which I like. The 683S/679 is a very nice wing.

Re: Anyone else have yearly stats to share?

I get about 200 sessions a year, or more, but it takes me 4x as long to learn a move compared to most so not sure if that counts...?

Happy New Year to All

I really appreciate this site and the folks that make it happen.

Re: Drysuit underwear

Dress as if you were going alpine skiing: Polypro, or wool thermal wear. Do not wear cotton. I like the one piece "Union Suit" as a base layer. If you search for "Kayak Thermal Wear" a lot of options come up" Level6, Kokatat, Immersion Research, Stohlquist, Ocean Rodeo... Winter white water kayakers...

Re: Moses 590 / 633 vs. Cabrinha vs. Lift 150 / 170

The 679 sure looks like the 683S.... Without knowing for sure, I'd say yes. I now ride the 683S after 1.5 years on the 633. Both are terrific wings. ^^^^ Grigor brings up an excellent point regarding weight. I have good friend who weighs about 130 lbs. She could not hold down the 633. Tried everythi...
