Re: Moses foil wings for Windwing foiling

Agree foil sizes are confusing. For me to put my $ up without the opportunity to demo I need span, chord, thickness and aspect. For some reason aspect seems different to span and chord. Then check comments on here and then see how all fits me. Chord is variable over span and affects aspect. A perfe...

Re: Off Topic - America's Cup Sailing - Foiled Monohulls

All this looks (from the perspective of this kitefoiler, using single skin kites, as a very expensive way to experiment (and the wrong way to inovate). It reminds me of the new particle accelerator that they want to build by 2035 (because the 2km diam existing one is not big enough) Too bad these g...

Re: Off Topic - America's Cup Sailing - Foiled Monohulls

Thank these guys and the Moth class for a lot of the research that’s gone into making our kite foils feasible.

Are the new foils finally coming?

This is a new kite, not new foils.

Re: Kitefoil on wingfoil board?

I could try this but I think it would suck. I tried mounting my Moses 1100 wing foil on my 3'6" dwarfcraft kite board and it wasn't fun.

Re: moses 101 mast, build and finish quality, 2020?

I have both a new 101 mast and an 82 mast that I can compare for you, but I’m not actually sure what information you’d like. I’m not going to cut open my 101 and see if the Core is wood or foam, of course. Both are are clearcoated and seem to have similar finish quality. The finish on my 91 that’s t...

You should just get that OR flight in Aula in 12m and use the apollos in 7 and 9.
This is actually a pretty good solution that only has me buying one new kite.

Apollos are same club yet relaunch of those in light wind is underwhelming
Relaunch on the Apollo in light winds is worse than my Souls. If the wind totally dies though, the self-rescue is still better on the Apollo. :)

Let's talk about our favorite kites for fast/powered riding.

So, there's lots of discussion of small, drifty, lightly powered kites lately. What about those of us who like to go fast? I've been riding a quiver of Flysurfer Souls most of this season so far, and I've enjoyed them. The problem is that I'm planning an extended boat trip to the Caribbean, and whil...

Re: Smaller lower aspect wing vs. bigger higher aspect

Higher aspect wings are more efficient. They make more lift per a given amount of drag. This is why they are used on race foils, sailplanes, and the sails of racing yachts. But they fly at a lower range of angles of attack, which means they generally will not go as slow, nor will they tolerate mist...
