Re: Moses Onda 91 633 alternatives

No you're not wrong the Phantasm is more expensive than the Moses I'm not sure why it was suggested since the original question was about lower cost alternatives.

Re: Moses Onda 91 633 alternatives

Check out Gong foils, I have both a Moses 633 and a Gong M Pro the are similar the gong is a bit faster and the stall speed is not as low but close. The Gong is heavier and has an aluminum mast but the price is much lower. I think you could learn easily on the Gong M Pro or the regular M (a bit slow...

Re: Recommended 1 strut for big wing hydrofoiling?

The only people who seem to be able to ride around here in 6 knots are the purebred racers on 18 and 21m race kites and even then, they don't bother. I had a 12m cloud for a few years and could barely keep it in the air in 6 knots. The racers need those big kites because they have small high aspect...

Re: Recommended 1 strut for big wing hydrofoiling?

Hey heavy guys 200-230lbs...From research it looks like my bottom end on a 12m pivot would be 10kts or so on hydrofoil, so is there really any advantage to getting a single strut kite? If so what size do you recommend for 8-15kt range? Yes the reason you get a single strut kite is not for extra pow...

Re: Recommended 1 strut for big wing hydrofoiling?

Check out the new 2021 Cabrinha Contra One Strut. https://www.jupiterkiteboarding.com/store/2021-cabrinha-contra-one-strut-p-8512.html They are kind of late to the party. The Contra is a good 3 struts kite so the single strut may be good. There are so many excellent single strut kites now it won't ...

Re: Light Wind Help

At 200 lbs 8 knots is possible but you will need both a powerful 17m kite and a huge board like the Spleene Door. You also need some skills in light wind you have to keep the kite moving at all times and go up wind in every little gust and try not to loose ground when the wind is down. On a hydrofoi...

I have at least 10 friends (probably closer to 20 now)

I call bullshit !
I second that! For my spot with very light wind and deep water kite foiling is a lot more efficient and probably more fun but I haven't tried the wing thing I have zero interest in it!

Re: "Golf bag" for foil?

My foil boards fit no problems in the Epic gear 155cm kiteboard "golf bag" it even says Golf Bag on the side so no questions asked 90% of the time. I put the foil and mast in a Hockey goaler bag with wheels essentially a big duffle bag with wheels and the Golf bag is usually free. I do that just to ...

North Reach.
It is like a 3 Strut Switchblade. Same Designer, powerful and playful light feeling.
I disagree I tried the Reach 2021 and it's nowhere near the power of the Roca, Eleveight RS or Swtichblade.

Re: What is the most powerful 12m 3 Strut kite ?

The Best Roca and Eleveight RS (same designer similar kite) are real powerhouse in terms of low-end and Hangtime! Best isn't doing so good so I would take a look at the Eleveight RS for boosting power and hangtime!
