Starting to Jump wing advise

Postby glfmkg » Mon Oct 03, 2022 11:48 pm

Hi All,

Now that I have mastered the foil and gybes (both ways) I want to start jumping - I can jump very well on a twin tip but want to add that to my foiling sessions. I'm still fairly new on the foil with about 28 sessions, but I now have pretty good control of the foil and gybes including looping both ways. I'm not working of foot switches!

I have a Moses T65, Moses 633W and a 91cm mast. This has been a dream to learn on for sure. So here is the question to you, I understand that the 633 front wing is not the ideal wing to start jumping and I wanted to make the process as easiest and safe as possible.

Should I just start jumping with the 633 and current setup or would you recommend moving to another wing? If so, what wing would you recommend for my skill level and weight (220lb)?

I have people telling me to start on the 633 but it would be challenging on landing? well that's not good me thinks lol. Anyways, please let me know your thoughts. I would prefer to stay with Moses as I have already invested on this system but I understand that I may need a different fuselage for other wings.

Any advise would be appreciated.
