Any suggestions as to how?

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Dropped board size today
« on: February 23, 2021, 07:43:35 AM »
Have been on a Takuma SK foil sup 6í 115L for last year. Iím 77kg and today rode my new board 5í6 85L Takuma TK.

Wow what a difference, everything seems easier. Was worried Iíd struggle to start it, but was easy, I think I might have even got away with the 5í4 75L version.

The volume distribution and recessed scoop deck really encourage ur knees and feet into the right spot. Only took a couple of runs to get comfortable, also really easy to pump up. Itís also really light.

Really pleased and glad Iíve dropped down.

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Size down from Moses 790
« on: September 04, 2020, 01:14:58 AM »
Hi guys,

Following on from another post I did.

Iím riding my 790 mainly now and my 1100 only when thereís no wind.

So my question is when Iím fully powered 4.5/3.5 weather what front foil smaller do I need to get? 679 or something else?

Cheers
Mike

So guys,  I have a Moses 1100 and 790. Ones 2100cm and the other 1550, I have been on my 1550 a lot lately on my 4.5 and 3.5 wings as itís been pretty windy.

Today I stuck the 2100 on with my 4.5 wing in very choppy conditions and a dropping wind, hence the big foil. I found it too much foil and really affected by the chop today, even though it was just enough wind for the 4.5. I used to enjoy the 2100, but after riding my smaller foil a lot it felt weird. Is this normal? Does this mean Iím getting better and donít need that big a foil? Iím 74kg.

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Gybe help
« on: August 18, 2020, 09:56:59 AM »
On about session 17, having windsurfer and kitesurfed for years, although no foiling.

I can ride very comfortably both directions in wind from 6, 4.5, 3.5 weather no problem, but last 4/5 sessions Iíve been trying to gybe. I get half 2/3 rds round and end up with a roll issue either to windward or leeward. Iíve had a few impacts with my foil as a result including a face impact on the wingtip that I thought broke my jaw, but luckily just a badly bruised face for a week. As a result my confidence is knocked. Any tips to help me turn a full 180?
Mike
