Re: Wings for Garbage Winds

The 633 is lively to me...and banks well....but at the same time it doesnt appear overly-sensitive to shotgun blast gusts on the kite and harness...could be the thickness.... I have found flat wings like the spitfire ( XL also) to have extreme roll instability....obviously they want folks to bank tu...

Wings for Garbage Winds

Not for the coasties who have relatively steady winds.... After a few years of riding Im seeing roll stability being a key factor for foiling in frontal-driven winds (wide-range, punchy, gusty, garbage winds) Obviously the 633 type surf wings with anhedral offer the best roll stability, but Im seein...

Re: Warp Drive for the S683

Do the tips breach more easily than the 483 with its downward tips?? The 330 would be good if the tips went down instead.....

Re: Warp Drive for the S683

I was out in low 30s slop wind and the 330 tends to breach its tips.....A LOT....going to reserve it for the tamer days....

Re: Warp Drive for the S683

I tried 330 and 325 with 633 and 720 and I didn’t like it at all. And I know some people do like it. Foil flew faster but became overly pitch sensitive. I think a larger stabilizer like 420 or 425 would be a better choice. Small stabilizer demand higher takeoff speed and I could feel it right away ...

Warp Drive for the S683

Went from the 483 stab to the 325 stab on the S683....its like hitting the NOS switch.... :alarm: Tried it on the 633 but it was like a bouncing balloon ride... The loss of roll stability is significant on the S683...not so much on the 633....considering the 330 or 420 instead.... Any advice from th...
