Front wing should be moved further forward of the mast.

Can be straight on the wing but you need to move mast forward on the board too,, but main thing you will loose direction stability

Thanks. Missed that mast are more further on other pictures. That confused me.
I will ride as it is.

Maybe someone can tell me if Moses 790 wing (1550 cm2) would be better than 633 (1250 cm2) for monofoiling? Probably less speed but maybe more stability?

Bigger foil will provide more drag and when you increase more speed your moving force will start to push board down

But with such logic than race or freeride wings are even better than best 633.

Freeride works better because of low aspect ratio wing itself is more stable pitch than race wing

Can't wait to see your video: "tandem monofoiling on a wave" :rollgrin:
Suzy and I had our first day tandem monofoiling. Lots of fun. Did some 360s, some were ugly, but we almost foiled out of one. 😁 No drone footage, though. ☹

Perfect :thumb: , so you two are worlds first tandem monofoil riders. One wing for two, much more economic than the other way around. :lol:

Have you used your "M" wing? What is your weight together?
And can you say more about how hard it was and what to take care for?
Any chance to do my first tandem ride directly on a Mono? (One time I want to start a new foiling sport directly the right way :wink: )

Thanks a lot.

We were using the NP medium. We are 306lbs with gear.

Like monofoiling generally, the trick is to keep the board on the water until you have enough speed. She really had to lean forward to keep it from wanting to jump up too soon.

Given how sensitive the mono is to input, I occasionally had to remind her to not get stiff or start pushing with her heals or toes. While it had been well over a year since we foiled together, her experience definitely helped. But with the right passenger, you could probably learn tandem with the mono, given your abilities. 🤙🏻
