Re: Moses Hydrofoil - the latest news

If the 930 on the mast is anything to go by it's a little shorter than the Vorace.

Re: Surfboard deck hooks for foil?

I have to respectfully beg to differ with you on learning strapless as I have been able to do so. I am neither a particularly experienced strapless waverider, nor do I consider myself particularly talented. I do have quite a lot of persistence though. Fortunately I have a foil setup where the foil i...

Re: Self launch equipment *fail* Naish

Here's my take on it. I think a tethered self launch is one of the safest ways to launch. Even with an assisted launch, there's a chance the helper lets go too early. If you are assisting someone else, often they don't know where they are relative to the edge of the wind window and stand too far upw...

Re: Moses Silente front wings - a guide

Glad to hear you got on better this time round! Hopefully I'll have some joy next time as well.
I'm in Auckland, New Zealand. My riding spots are a combination of flat water and small waves.

Re: Moses Silente front wings - a guide

I had the same experience as you, going up and down like crazy on the first runs. I tried moving both front and rear straps do the most forward position on the board (arriba arriba full carbon 142cm), but somehow I still felt like my position was way off, I had to really push down on the front foot...

Re: Moses Hydrofoil - the latest news

The FR425 and the HP560 (with the correct stabilizers of course, they can not be mixed!) are very different wings, that feel very different. If you are used to riding the FR425 it is normal that you'll need a bit of riding to adjust to the HP560, but once you have done that I am pretty sure you wil...

Re: Moses Hydrofoil - the latest news

Looks like they're no longer making or selling the FR425, so the HP560 is the new beginner wing. I've place an order on the 560, so let's see how it goes. Should be good! Let us know how is your progress. Finally had my first session on the 560 - quite humbling after feeling nice and comfortable on...

Re: How many come from TT riding (only) ?

So far the general tone is that you ought to be able to ride a directional or a raceboard first, but I have found that not to be the case, and I hope that any TT rider thinking of getting into foilboarding not let this put them off. Waveriders and racers are the pioneers, but I think in the future, ...
