Re: Moses 790 wing

Agree grigorib, so something does not make sense in the above post answer to PurdyKiter...

These big wings float, which for some is great as fast to waterstart when crashed, for others a PITA as the foil sails away on its own, personal preferences only.

Re: Spotz2 foil for beginner?

Chris is spot on with his comments here :thumb: Only one thing: Do you want to ride fast, or jump max high, or maybe race? If so, not in doubt, go for it, you will learn on the Spotz :D Assume you want to be fast, since you are considering the Spotz. As if it is only because it is a really good deal...

Did kiting look this gay when it first started? The fat huge boards, giant tube in the face and coil leashes are just screaming super kooky.

Yes it did.... :o

And windsurfers will say it still does :rollgrin:

Re: Best ultra-lightwind hydrofoil

Indeed yes jumptheshark, I have got (and tried) quite a number of wings :wink: Kruiser thread which you found: https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=196&t=2402565 The Ketos Kruizer, a tad smaller, got more lift less loss and I can definitely ride in somewhat less wind than with the 1200 wings (Ketos...

Re: Foil kites - lost of center lines?

Agree, but I dont think there would be heaps of power though, on the contrary :wink: Its easy to test, just pull in both rear leader lines a couple of meters (fast) on a day with really low wind, to get the idea :rollgrin: Or even better (safer), tie one extra rope to both rearlines before launching...

Re: front wing failure

Indeed, a manufacturing error and should be replaced (the shop has to get a new wing), not your fault unless you have hit a sandy bottom straight on of course, then it might delaminate like that, but still bad workmanship the way it opens up...

Re: Mast size

Tacking after 10 sessions - that's amazing! Been going two years and I still haven't managed one! Sounds incredible, amazing :D Unless it is surface tacks, and not flying tacks of course :wink: Cant really do them either, only a few with touchdown on the way out - but almost never practice tacks so...

Re: Foil boards with minimal volume (built like a twin tip)

No I am not using straps.

Of course its easier to get it ready if low volume, agree.

But it will require somewhat more wind in order to foil, and survive "everything" once up, even if really big wings, that was the point.

Re: Mast lengths

But why do you ride with the mast deeper, on a longer mast? No reason to do this, EXCEPT if you change masts occasionally only, then it will become a problem. Can only recommend to either stay at one lenght most of the time, OR, change so often that you can change style quite fast :naughty: But as s...
