Re: Moses 2019-2020-2021

the problem is in the words used on the moses web site, the 82 mast sits in the kite surf section as a mast option for everyone, and I know I had read the quote about amazing speed, which is still there. in my view it's not that amazing, it's a bit disappointing. It clearly has a top speed, the stan...

Re: Moses 2019-2020-2021

Any news about the new 91 mast? I heard rumour they are releasing a 92cm mast with similar stiffer construction to the 72 and 82cm masts. I heard that to. and then I had to stop myself trying to pre-order one after I thought it through after being the owner of the 82cm mast, twice! Has anybody else...

Re: Short Foilboard water start tips?

Yeah, that makes sense. It must be timing. It felt like the moment I powered the kite the nose was popping up and I didn't have time to flatten. I'm sure you're right. Almost like a pump. Power kite, nose up, pump down and back up without powering kite too much. Sounds like I'll be learning to foil...

Re: High wind hydrofoiling

This old post from last year did make me think more about the wind strengths some guys claim to have been out in on a foilboard,and the wings used which might support these claims, also the sea conditions, as this is the biggest limiting factor by far. skill factor has to be considered but even the ...

Re: Benefits of small double skin foil kites for freeride hydrofoil?

Went out on the 7mtr Hyperlink today, dawn raid on our flat low tide lagoon till it flooded over then on to the open wavy sea, 17 knts to begin with but then the wind dropped to around 10knts for 45 mins, the 7 kept me going, then the wind returned, the waves built and I started humming beach boys t...

Re: Benefits of small double skin foil kites for freeride hydrofoil?

Thanks Foil and Adventurelogs - this is just the sort of information that I was looking for. I saw a 5m hyperlink which I was semi- tempted to buy. If I was planning a snowkite trip then I could probably justify it more easily. as you most likely know, the hyperlinks are dual purpose, closed cell a...

Re: Benefits of small double skin foil kites for freeride hydrofoil?

Well ! I have been trying to give you something that may be compelling, but I must admit I can only come up with small advantages but these are countered by some challenging disadvantages. I have 5mtr hyperlink V1 ultralight, and a 7mtr v2 hyperlink My 5mtr is my highwind kite, the 7 is not a highwi...

Re: Sabfoil = Moses ?

Re: Sabfoil = Moses ?

It was perfect at high speed straight from the box, no noise at all, unlike many others like me who bought earlier versions and had to spend a few sessions with their new masts singing like a banshee until we managed to sand the trailing edge to a point of perfect and complete silent running at high...
