sold your 633
that is a move I won't be making.
my 683 is more likely to go, and that's not very likely.
steve will be receiving his 720 wing very soon so speed data will be available as soon as,
he also has the 633 and 683, and has access to my 790,I will test out the speed of the 790 soon, but i don't expect anything much over 20mph.
the 633 and 683 on the 101 mast with all surfaces including the mast given the stealth treatment (all matt surfaces)
and locked down stance in 3 straps and comparing the wing speed using all kites sizes from 15mtr to 5mtr, all foil kites in appropriate winds for each size.
the speeds were very consistent over the long test time collecting the data, just about 2 knots between them on every test.
however two things did affect the top speed numbers.
using a small 5mtr foil kite in strong winds added another 1 knot for both wings.
and the other surprise was adding another knot when the mast was treated to the flat matt finish, which added an extra smooth sensation when pushing the upper limit.
the average top speed before matting down the mast was 633=24kts, 683= 26knts.
so where will the 720 wing sit??
that's the question for me before I consider buying one, I am lucky to be able to try before I get too excited.
The top speed I have seen gps verified when using a 633 wing was achieved by one of my other foiling buddies
yes, and it raised a big cheer from the beach.
only trouble was he reached this speed as he was flying through the air after being thrown from the board at the same time as looping the kite in very strong winds of 35mph gusts. but its still just over 40mph!
