Yeah, from your stance it looks like your are back foot bias. HF trim and stance is a personal preference, although it can change with time.mig27 wrote: Please comment!
When I inquired for the board back in 2014, Nicolas recommended the short (80cm) instead of the long (95cm), which I initially wanted to have.Peter_Frank wrote:I guess there only was two Makaira mast lengths, a short one and the "normal" one, and it is the 1m.
Maybe because my board is quite small, the mast looks long ?
Wow, that is a nice place to go foiling!Horst Sergio wrote:As this seems to turn into a: "How much did you like your Makaira Foil ..."
We all know that a front wing on it's own will naturally want to dive.Blackrat wrote:erm, i think its the opposite, he needs a bigger rear wing , or needs to increase the angle of the rear stab to reduce back foot pressurewindmaker wrote:I ride my Sword 2 strapless and perfectly balanced on both feet. Since you are also strapless one would think that all you should do when the speed increases and the front pressure increases with it , is to move both feet forward in order to regain that balance but on my Sword it is actually the opposite. As the speed increases I tent to move my feet 2 or 3 cm further back in order to keep a perfect balance.mig27 wrote:
I never added any strap to my board
I can ride it without pain in any direction when I go with not much kite-power.
But when powered up (and go faster) it starts to be a pain sometimes.
I also hear that from other people on foils like the Mozes and other brands.
I would like to know what I am doing wrong.
I therefore think you should try shimming your rear wing very slightly in such a way that it reduces its elevating effect. if that does not work (it should) you can also try a smaller back wing.
I had the opportunity to try your recommendation yesterday.Peter_Frank wrote:Yes, your rear foot is really far forward
