Moses 633 or SS GW 91 on LF Galaxy?

Postby SpaceRacer » Wed Aug 29, 2018 1:05 am

Anyone ride this setup? I am 185 pounds and wonder if the mast track is back far enough to ride this setup as is or do you need to shim? Thanks

I ride 633 wing with variety of masts
No difference in Slingshot vs. Moses

What’s the question?

LOL! My bad. I am wondering if that wing/mast setup works well on the LF Galaxy out of the box or do you have to shim with that board? For example I was told that this setup works well with the small Slingahot Dwarfcraft but with the larger Dwarfcraft you have to shim because on the large SS DC the mast track is not far enough aft on this board. Was wondering what to expect with this setup and LF Galaxy. BTW I assume you like the 633 aka 91? Thanks!

With the bigger surf wings, I usually just move the track all the way back and then ride with no rear strap. Your rear foot will be front of the rear strap. There's some stuff online about shimming the rear wing on the moses to eliminate the need to move the rear foot forward of the rear strap but my friends that have tried it, said it didn't do much of a difference. I ride the Impulse wings on a Galaxy with just the front two straps or strapless depending on conditions.
