First sessions this weekend on foil. Favorite wing without question. Fast stable yet carvy when you ask it to be. Inspired a lot of confidence in me very quickly. When i breached it, i was able to continue riding. My only problem was the amount of front foot pressure needed. I have an alien air and have my mast all the way back and still riding with my front foot in front of neoprene pads. A better rider tried it and had his foot on the pad and he was happy with the setup. My mast is mounted behind the wing so I am going to put the mast on top of the wing like DukeSilver and see what I think of that position. I understand now why the 633 has so many fans. Add me to the list. The most "connected" i have ever felt to a wing.
Definitely move the mast so it's on the wing. This will solve your front foot pressure problem. I'm on a 110cm pocket board and it's perfectly balanced. Glad you like the wing too.
