Hold on there!
As everyone knows who have seen my posts, I use the Onda on my only board at the moment, the Moses T60 carbon, and my sailing buddy who only has the T40 and has the Onda set, and is blown away with it.
As for myself, yes I have reported you need to set the front strap far forward, and Keep your back foot mid way between the rear strap and front strap, this stance keeps the board completely level and under complete control and feels really good pointing high on toeside in waves or not, and for me at my early stage I think this has helped me manage a few foot switches.and powered flying Jibes are now a joy,
However I have ordered a groove board with mast tracks which I pick up next week, and the new shinn carbon board with tracks is on order well,this will help me when I want to swap wings by not having to swap foot strap positioning.
When my buddy ordered the Onda wing set up I warned him he might need to rethink his strap positioning and move his back foot way forward like I do, he was worried about this as he sails with his feet very wide apart.
I was with him on his first day using the new wing he was nervous he might find it hard to adapt.
well guess what!
straight up and away, and big smiles when he came in, he said there must be something wrong with me, as he found it great to sail, how wrong was I? I put it down to his weight and size, being much larger and heavier than me,
what amazed me was he was using the same size kite as me and I had stepped 2 sizes back from when I use the standard Moses wings, watching him closely he popped his large physique up on to the foil in one or two kite sines, not even a loop used, that made me swear to see that, It took me a bit longer to get to grips with the wings massive lift
We are both away at Flag beach next week and I will pick up my new 120 Groove board to use, I think this board I will change over to once adjusted to the difference, then the choice I will make will be between the new shinn which I hope to have in a few weeks when it hits the shops in the uk.
I would have ordered some new boards anyways despite now owning the Onda as I was in the market for a shorter board with tracks, I think not having tracks is not ideal when you want to try all and any type of wing combination, and not have to move your straps.
So in short, the Onda will work with both "T boards" and they work very well, but yes you do have to either move your weight forward like Wayne which suits him by just leaning more forward on take off, which will not work for me as I looped the wing in fine style trying that, I had to move the front strap and move my back foot forward by quite a bit, which now feels just dandy.
