Buy new or used Onda and have best possible weight/price/flying stability possibilities. Plus after few weeks Moses releasing 75 allu mast with onda wings, about 945 euros only.

How sure are you of your claim?
The NP is 100 euros cheaper and there are kiters who have both, Onda and the NP and they prefer the NP.
Do you already know how heavy the Moses allu mast is?

Has anybody tried the Large wing in combination with the small rear stabiliser?
Yes, very stable but I tilt the rear wing down with the washer it came with as this reduces the lift. Also do you use a small kite with short lines? If so how short and what size kite?

I see they are hosting a Surf Contest? I wonder how they will judge it? Will it be one wave or will pumping count?

I hope he does compete. I know a few peeps headed to the event that are pretty crafty. It will be cool to see how everyone lines up.

Had another session on the Glide L wing yesterday in 9-10 knots. This time I paired it with a Flysurfer Peak4 5m. I didn't think it would have the juice but it worked out. The downwind drift on the Peak4 is something special in light winds.

I tried putting the washer under the back bolt of the stab but even still my natural foot position is on top of the mounting holes for the straps.

I also bought the S wing but haven't had it out yet.

I'm using the Dwarcraft 4'6 with a GoFoil Iwa wing and straps. In order to be able to use the straps I had to drill extra holes in the tuttle box adapter to move the foil back about 2". Otherwise it would get WAY too much lift when I put the rear foot in the strap and had to stand all the way forward.

Check out the thread here and some pix. https://www.standupzone.com/forum/index ... ic=33816.0
(not my pic, but very similar to what I have done though with less holes) :D

The foil being towed in here is a Large Glide! We love it. We've been using it to surf behind the boat. For a comparison, we really like the infiniti 84cm for pumping, and it's more nimble, but for learning, and teaching others, the glide has a more locked in feel, making it more forgiving and easier.
