Advice for New wing

Postby JoseTumaco » Wed Apr 21, 2021 2:36 am

Please I would like some advice before trying a new wing. I own a 679 and 550 Moses wing with 91 mast, want to buy a new one, but not for race, just fun, perhaps some more speed could be great. Wich wings could make a difference?
I kite 1 year ago, 75 kg, 12 M Soul kite, normally in 9/10 knots at the sea. I use a 1.20 Groove skate board.

Hi Jose

The reason noone has answered is probably because it is difficult to understand what you ask for?

You got the 550 which is 572 cm2 and quite high aspect.
A really fast wing, and should be excellent with your 12 m2 Soul kite.

The 679 is 990 cm2 and lower aspect, perfect for small or bigger waves, or general fun and easy tricks in light wind.

IMO you got the perfect setup with these two wings.

Do you seek a wing in between?

A bit faster (speed not turning) than the 679 and starting earlier than the 550?

That shouldnt be a problem (I can not help as good as others, but many can), if that is what you seek?

8) Peter

Thanks Peter, you are right, my question was not easy to understand, I liked your answer. I like 550 wing and dont want something in Between, but something faster than 550 wing.

Thanks
