Re: Levitaz Cruizer vs Moses Onda

Anyone here ride the Cruiser? Anyone done any top speed runs on it? How fast are you able to make it go? Curious about the top end speed on it compared to my Moses 683S.

Re: turning circle and wing size

If you’re just learning to jibe to toeside and you’re having trouble keeping line tension through the turn, it’s almost certainly a problem with your technique and not yore wing. Your 1000cm wing should go plenty slow to do this.

Re: If you had to re-buy all your kites tomorrow, what would you get?

So far I’m surprised by how different these all are. There are only a couple of quivers listed that you could swap between the people who picked them and still have something pretty close to the original. Foil’s current quiver is fairly close to mine. There are a couple similar quivers of clouds. No...

Re: An object in a fluid

Ok, answering my own question: https://openfoam.org/ (the engine) https://sim-flow.com/ (the cockpit to drive it) Just ordered the first parts for a CNC table I'll build soon. Steppersonline for my stepper motors, drivers, interface board and water cooled spindlemotor. Robotdig for splined pulleys,...

If you had to re-buy all your kites tomorrow, what would you get?

Here’s the rules for this challenge: Assume all of your kites got stolen, and your insurance will buy you any 3 new kites you want. These 3 kites will be the only kites you own for a full year. Obviously, since this is in the hydrofoil forum, I expect the main use for these will be foiling, but feel...

Re: Foil kites - lost of center lines?

Grab both steering lines and pull on them until the flying lines go slack. That's what will happen.

Re: SUPfoil touring

I have friends who do normal (non-foil) SUP downwinders on the California coast (north of Santa Cruz) so I don’t see why you couldn’t do it with a foil, too.

Re: Moses 683 Freeride QA

This should be in the hydrofoil section, not foil kites. I can’t measure my wing right now (I’m in the airport) but my 483 stabilizer is chipped and scratched and there’s a small chunk out of one wingtip on my 683 wing, and none of the damage has made any significant difference in how it rides. It’s...

Re: What force turns a twintip?

I’m not sure at this point what you actually want to accomplish. Are you having trouble getting the board to turn - I.e. it goes in a straight line and won’t rotate. Or are you having trouble riding downwind, but not turning - I.e. you can make the board point the direction you want, but not keep ri...

Re: What force turns a twintip?

You can ignore the kite, really. A twintip turns for the same reasons a snowboard or surfboard (non-kite-powered) turns. Essentially, when you lean into a turn and push harder on your back foot than your front foot, it pushes the back of your board farther away from you than your front foot. If you ...
