Re: Upwind/Downwind Technique?

I’m using different sizes, but in 10 to 14 knots on a 15 Mt soul, a Moses T60 board, with a Vorace mast (101 Cm) and a 590 wing. Weight 95 Kg’s. My angle to the wind is ok, but on the downwind run I always seem to be vertical, upright on top of the board, which is not so stable. How do you get the b...

Re: Upwind/Downwind Technique?

Thanks for the information. I’ve jsut started on my racing journey. Does anyone know of any good videos or similar tutorials on correct stance for downwind. I find upwind I have no problems. BUt downwind I jut can’t seem to get pointed anywhere near enough down wind, and the crashes I am having at s...

I have a 590/325 or /330 that I will sell. In Europe though.
Thanks for the offer, but postage to Australia is probably prohibitive.

Moses Foil Upgrade 590, 633 or 683

HI All I recently learned to foil on a Cabrinha Double Agent. I was at the stage where I could gybe on the foil and complete 90% of those gybes, but had to touch down for my foot switch. I recently got the opportunity to upgrade to a Moses Vorace which was second hand and in my price range. It is a ...

Re: Is the Cabrinha Double Agent a good board to start with?

I bougth a 2017 second hand CAb DA in January this year. LOVE IT. It is definitley a foil you will grow out of in a season, depending on how often you get out. But it is suer friendly and so much fun. I started on a 60Cm mast, and that was great for the first half a dozen or so sessions. THen moved ...

Re: Best Foil for Absolute Beginner?

Above post by Flysurfer sums it up from my experience. Short mast makes the initial sessions so much easier. Im 2 months in to the learning journey, on a Cabrinha DOuble Agent. Great foil to learn, but I can already feel I will outgrow it quickly. Have watched friends variously learn on an Axis, the...

Re: 2018 quiver advice?

I’m curious, can someone give me some insight. Like the opening post, real reviews seem impossible to find. All are sales reviews, fi you believe the magazines every kite is brilliant at everything. I fly Fx’s. Never really tried anything else. And I’m happy. But when i read replies to a thread like...

Re: Cabrinha Radar vs Slingshot Rally

Not doubting you aspiremr but please explain how the Radar held you back or what the FX gives you that the Radar didn't. Hi Alford, I can’t necessarily put a finger on one defining characteristic of the Radar that held me back. All I know is when it was time to upgrade I got convinced by the local ...

Re: Cabrinha Radar vs Slingshot Rally

I owned a cabrinha radar as my first kite - 18 months ago. Nothing wrong with it. BUt would i recommend it to a newbie - not in a million years. You will outgrow it far too quickly if you plan to kite at all regularly. I’ve graduated to Fx’s. Not a Cabrinha Fanboy at all, but any crossover kite from...
