Well, waves and waves. We get wind chop and wind swell. Small knee, hip high junk. To get shoulder / head high we need 15-20ms wind and I don't venture out in that kind of wind. Sometimes I get lucky and catch tail end of a storm and get shoulder high in less wind.
Tom im told by a race foil guy here in Mar Menor that there is a particular way to sand trailing edge. Its from the top edge with downward strokes towards the rear at an angle but im not sure of the angleTomW wrote: ↑Mon Jan 06, 2020 3:22 pmI sanded the trailing edges of front and stab with a block. Went out today again.
Now it seems worse! At over 22km/hr it's now high pitched solid scream, not a whistle. There's some whistles at certain speeds and PoS, but a lot of screaming.
It's rather irritating! It ruins the experience.
There's graphics printed on top side of wings. Should I sand and prime the entire wing ? It will ruin the resale value, but I wouldn't sell it as it is now...that would be unfair to buyer.
I don't want to sell it actually, I really like the character. If I can fix noise, I might sell my Moses.
Can anyone give me details of how to sand TE?
found this, maybe you aleady saw it tooPeter_Frank wrote: ↑Sun Jan 05, 2020 8:14 pm
Maybe, but I am not sure about that, I think it is something close the, or the very, trailing edge of "something".
I once had one that made noise, and I put tape on all screw heads which you can do right away, did not make any difference.
Also put tape around the joints here and there, as IF it came from there, it should at least change noise (as impossible to make a perfect fairing with tape).
Didnt change anything.
Found out it was the stab, one side of the trailing edge needed just a tad of sanding, and the noise were all gone !!!
But put tape on the screw heads Tom, then you will know right away if thats the root cause or not, without filling anything unnecessarily
Thanks for the sizing.
So Gong M is 4.4 in AR where the Onda is 3.3 only, yes.
I've not ridden the M Classic. I've been riding Moses 633 Onda 2 years on 2016 93cm mast.cescof wrote: ↑Mon Jan 06, 2020 5:54 pmHy and thanks for sharing your experience.. I'have M classic with 45 stab an 80 mast...last year was my first year with hydrofoil, and on my local spot everybody uses moses onda that's more smooth and faster then gong.
I'm really a newbie and at the end of summer season i was able to have a jable (without downloop) and toeside but with many problems and crash..
But after a season i feel M standard with to much friction.... do you suggest to change to M pro? same stab?
