Re: Moses Bolt Torque?

It’s the nature of a taper fit, they settle over time with use and require a retorque. The taper moves ever so slightly into the corresponding hole and the screw looses torque. Most of the pressure is on the front of the fuselage as the wing is pushing upwards and your weight downwards hence the fr...

Re: Moses Bolt Torque?

The first of 2 mast-to-fuselage-screws untightens itself every session, no matter how tight I screwed it. This never seemed to be a problem to me. The whole connection seems to be very stiff. Being here on Flag beach for the next 6 months and foiling nearly every day has given me time to try to fin...

Re: Moses Bolt Torque?

Torque? Moses barely published bolt lengths :lol: :lol: :lol: so true and it was "so much easier" when moses supplied the shallow allen head countersunk wing fixing screws, same ones for the fuse to mast back then, it was only 2-3 years ago when moses were still supplying them "chocolate" screws, "...

Re: High wind foiling

Compared the 4 mtr Uno and the 4 mtr Peak on the same day, my guess is 25-30 knots. The Uno was good, bit overpowered but still fun. The Peak wasn’t fun, flapping like a banshee. Yes, I should have been on smaller sizes but showed that the Peak needs to be used it’s wind range, otherwise it’s a bri...

Re: High wind foiling

Where you sail makes heaps of difference to the quality of the wind and water shapes which makes enjoyment in high winds better or worse, I am still looking in amazement at the difference between this factor at my present sailing location here on furteventura's flag beach and back home in the UK, th...

Re: Duotone 2021 Clickbar for foiling

I now use the duotone click bar, 2020, for hydrofoiling, I have used the north click bar for many long years on lei kites and Ttips, one big plus on the duotone click bar is the different internals, the winding system is just silky smooth, very different to the original north internals, I took mine ...

Re: Hand Sewing Ripstop Nylon

I would try Tear Aid type A, permanent repairs to sail or kite cloth without stitching, incredible stuff, once applied correctly it won't tear again, and can't be removed, basically invisible at around a few feet away, the surrounding cloth will give way before Tear Aid type A (not Type B as that is...

Re: Ozone Chrono V4 vs Flysurfer Sonic V3

What is the rubbish here talking about sand in the trailing edge? All foil kites that have air vents will get sand inside, unless you just use on snow or lakes, sand particals get blown into all open spaces when near the ground, especially foil kite air intakes when wind and dry sand is blowing arou...
