Re: Foil kites on wet beaches

Useage, foil boards or TTips. it's important to make the point of reference when talking about pros and cons. foil use on TTips is a totally different discussion surely? foil kites on foil boards are under lesser loads and stress, and have many advantages over lei kites and very few disadvantages. h...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

Got a mate who has a 633 on the 82cm mast. He has a problem of the mast to fuselage screws loosening during use, one in particular is barely finger tight at the end of the session. I’ve had a close look at the threads and screws and can’t see any defects. The mast doesn’t bottom out in the base of ...

Re: Considering a switch to foil kites

. Lastly I will say foil kites develop more pull for their size than tubes for the same reason they jump better and win races. They are more efficient. If you would like me to explain more on this just ask. No, riders win the races. Riders with extraordinary skills who can squeeze the most from kit...

Re: Possible to learn wingfoiling with pocket board or 60 litres board for 80kg person?

what do you think without powerstroke? Try 4-5 m kite without moving... that made me relate that back to my windsurfing days, waterstarting from under the sail, for a small wing it would have to be very windy for the lift to work, and how unstable would that make everything without the benefit of b...

Re: getting up on foil wing foiling

you make it look easy, I have watched so many getting so frustrated at trying to get just up on their feet, and even on their knees, how long was the learning curve for you to get up and foiling smoothly. and if you can gybe a foil board smoothly does that cross over very quickly to the wing foil? I...

Re: Possible to learn wingfoiling with pocket board or 60 litres board for 80kg person?

I would say it might be possible for some people but probably prohibitively difficult for most humans. I would strongly encourage you to try and borrow a big board for your first few sessions. I do think foot straps will help with low volume water starts. Ask Gunnar (gmb13) about the posibilitys, h...

Re: Jumping with large wings (Onda) destroys masts?

well, that's not great but you have to remember there is a massive metal reinforcement that sits directly behind that crack, see the X Ray of just how big that piece of hardware is. If you don't jump then it may well hold up well due to the reinforcement inside, but if you boost big with some dodgy ...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

I was informed that Moses was now using a new supplier for the surf fuselage who is more able to anodize the fuse to a higher standard preventing the little white corrosion spots that can be seen forming around the fuse, especially near the front wing connection and under both wings on the fuse surf...

Re: groove or ketos 118

You can specify any mast fitment, even dual fitments, any colour of board or black with colour logos or flashes of colour, longer tracks , anything really, all at the same cost( not sure if dual tracks cost a little more. that is very good information, don't think it is mentionned anywhere on the w...
