I tried out L wing and S stab last night and so far it's my favourite. I find the L + L is a bit too locked in while the L + S gives me more flowy carving.

Did you put a shim washer on the frontside of the tail wing?

No shim this time, I had tried a shim with the large stab in the past but didn't find it to make that much difference.

I tried the combi Large wing with the small stab without shim washer. Too much pressure on my frontfoot. No fun at all.

i only use the L front wing with the S stabilizer. it pivots so much better that way. the extra front foot pressure (relative to LF Impulse wing) takes only a few moments to adjust to. but overall, the L front wing is a bit overkill for kiting. mostly i stick with LF Impulse wings, as that setup is so much more agile than NP L wing. NP L on surfboard will be interesting.
