That wing size should work for kiting. The best selling wing on the market is the Moses 633 and it's 1250 so not too far off. I have been doing a lot of tinkering with foils and building my own mast and wings etc.. I can tell you It's important everything is balanced properly so the foot pressure is not excessive in the front. It's possible you need to move the mast back or you may need a smaller stabilizer if you use a much smaller board than originally intended. Get someone who is experienced to try it and tell you how they think it rides.
indeed it took a while tweeking it.
I connected a rocket foil fish from LF and skimmed it until the complete setup ran balanced through the water when nudged.
Than I found feet position with short mast (40cm):
With front foot I found convenient position and mounted a foot hook for fixation of position.
Same with back foot.
Ditching with 40cm Mast ok.
Continued with 60cm: Flying phases.
Everything feels good while riding, convenient stance nearly no force rides - impression how nice it can be.
Unfortunately usually to much wave for 60cm, so I turned 90cm with a drawback now.
Actually I like physical training anyway, so I don't care about these coordination sessions.
But continuing struggling and get nerves, I will follow yr advice to ask a guy capable in foiling and give my setup a try.
What I describe in setup task sounds reasonable?
