Re: Who are the Wing foilers ?

Yeah agree with Peter, it’s technique dependent too. With practice you can drop your low end to sub 10 knots with a 6. A 5 will get you going in 14 knots no problem with a bunch of different size foils once you know how. Anyone use the 9m wing from gong yet? or is it out yet? Wonder what kind of lo...

Re: Moses foil wings for Windwing foiling

Same here. I love the 1100 for lighter winds with my 5 and 6m Echo’s, but for stronger winds I downsize to my trusty Gong XL pro (1734 sq cm projected). My 790 is carvy and reasonably fast but has a higher stall speed than I’d like for winging. The XL pro just works better! I’m reading that for equ...

Re: 633/91/483 whistling relief and new stab?

If the sound is changing pitch and volume depending on speed and angle to wind, then my hypothesis is that its the TE. If you are getting a multi-tonal disharmonic sound, ( cats fighting) its probably both wings. when i had my 590 wing with the pin holes, it "whined" with a more constant sound on a...

Re: 633/91/483 whistling relief and new stab?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMieQ_pdsPA So I wouldn't square your TE's, I'd probably do what George is suggesting here. I would only do this if I could confirm an imperfection either visually or by touch, such an imperfection might cause a loud noise like you're experiencing. Thanks for the adv...

Re: 633/91/483 whistling relief and new stab?

its most likely not the mast. I've never heard of a Moses 633 whistling... The trailing edge of wings is usually the source, but Moses wings are generally well finished on TE. My 590 wing whistled out of the box, it turned out there were a few small pinholes in the clear coat. I had to paint and sa...

633/91/483 whistling relief and new stab?

My 633 setup whistles quite abit at times and would like to fix it. Ive read sanding down the trailing edge of the mast flat will help. Does anyone have some tips or trick to doing this?? I have some 1000grit wet sand paper at home and was going to use a chunk of 2x4 as a sanding block.. Id also lik...

Re: GPS watch for Kiteboarding

I use a Garmin Forerunner 35. Very basic watch but give a speed and distance readout. Also a map of where I was after the sesh.
