Complete Onda for $900, yeah, I hear that package will also come with a unicorn to tow you when the wind is light!
900 euro doesn’t sound totally crazy if they release an aluminum mast. Current onda is 1500 euro with almost half of that going to a carbon mast. So under 1k euro with aluminum mast sounds reasonable, and probably wouldn’t significantly change per-unit profit. Whether or not Moses chooses to sell it that cheap is another matter, but they probably could. My guess is that the carbon mast is the most expensive piece to manufacture, simply because it has the most material and large molds.

But it will be alluminium onda, with 71 cm only mast. So, not very nice lenght for sea. And positioned as for kite schools for learning.

i have just ordered that kit from Houston kiteboarding,
looks great, and will save me loads of fuel for my car,
being able to sail at my local shallow water spot when the wind direction is pants for my prefered deep water local spot, won't be used a lot but the price makes so much more sense for that reason.
it will save me driving the 4 hour round trip to my other deep water spot.

I think Foilmount need to let their distributors know that this adapter is available or at least for down under.
I am keen to buy but it's a bit challenging.

It will be 75cm. Not a big difference but a good lenght to learn and progress.

Mine has just arrived here in the UK all the way from Texas, 5 days door to door.
I have just screwed it all together and pleasingly its 74cm when the base plate is fitted, which is better for the shallow spot I intend to use this at,
the black adaptor is really well engineered, machined from Aluminum alloy, it all fits and looks great.

I now need to try it on the water to determine the exact base plate position in the board tracks as the base plate/mast fixing distance is different to my standard Moses carbon mast and the mast angle is slightly different, not a problem but will need a few goes to determine the exact correct position in the tracks.
thanks guys :thumb:

He just got them in a few weeks ago. I know since I'm the one who printed the prototypes for him. I don't know what his plans are for international but if you contact him I'm sure he might be able to get one to you.

how does it work with both Moses fuselages? My 590 and 633 take different fuselages.

Or am i just confused?

The adaptor fits all kitefoil fuses from Moses, old and new, and of course the Onda fuse,
what your maybe thinking are the different fixing screws they all adopt,
the adaptor comes with the full set of screws for all 3 fuses,
which surprised me when I opened the pack and all these screws appeared.
it took me a while to realize the countersunk ones are for the older pointy end fuse. :thumb:
