ÖÖ. DW mentioned an 830 HPS is that a typo or has that wing not made it on the Axis site yet? Thanks for any info

Itís on the Axis site. Go to the bottom and look at the chart on screw sizes for different wings. The 830 is listed there. Itís coming.

What should I cut my 460 tail down to?
I have been loving the 380. I am usually on the 890 or the 980v1.
I was thinking 400ish like the HA400. It seems like almost the same shape as the 460?
Maybe 420? Just cuz.
The 400HA is the exact same shape as the 460 when laid on top of it...just 30mm shorter on each end.
Me: 6'1"/185...5'1" Kings Foil Board...5'7" Kings Foil Board...9'6" Bob Pearson "Laird Noserider"...14' Lahui Kai "Manta"...8'0" WaveStorm if/when the proning urges still hit.

Does anyone find that the 700 HPS specs are not in sync with the other HPS wings?

Looking at chord and volume.

When you see the 700 in person, it looks like an old wing. Low aspect, black sheep of the HPS familyÖ ;D ;D. Iíve been offered a demo ride on it several times and declined just based on the look of it. Figured it wasnít for me.

Now the 830, thatís a hot one. I have one.

Guys,
Iím still dithering on my next foil set. Iím 77kg with 6,4.5,3.5,2.5 wings. I have the 1060 and 910 which I use in a 1:9 ratio. I canít afford to make a mistake so do I go 980/880 or 930/830? I ride choppy onshore waves mostly. I guess the 980/880 will span what I use the 910 in but was thinking if the 930 low end is like my 910 then I could do 930/830?
Guidance is appreciated.

Mike

and looking at the 650, Aspect Ratio should 5.68 by my calculation so maybe similar looking to 700.

Maybe preferred AR for smaller sized HPS wings.

Am waiting for the 830 to show up here in Oz.

I've got the 980/880 and it covers me for all my needs. Good quiver.

If you are not winging on the 890, you are doing it wrong. I am baffled by the range of this beast. Mostly, the low end. I was missing this on the HPS wings. I can ride this one at a walking pace and just slash and pump around. I never thought this slow of a speed was possible on a 1290cm wing that has skateboard handling. Frothing

Hi,
I'm running into issues with my 1060 breaching like crazy. I think I just have too much lift in 20-25 kts. I'm 200lbs flying a 5m strike. I was thinking a 1010, 910, or 970 might solve this. Thoughts?

Also if you're thinking of selling one let me know.

Surprised to hear that really,although I'm 25 lbs heavier.Ive been riding my 1060 for months in those similar conditions and rarely have breaching problems with the 1060 unless due to major pilot error on my part it's a very forgiving,stable cruisy highly reliable wing in my opinion,perhaps your rear wing might be a player I'm using a 420 rear perfect with 1060,maybe 380 with your weight might be better and you are probably at those windspeeds in 4m-4.5m territory,I usually ride my 5.2 Ensis or 4.5  in those wind speeds or simply get the BSC 970 and case solved with a 4m wing

I'm definitely struggling with tuning the foil. I used to have it all the way back, and breeching was still a problem. With it all the way back I'm mostly balancing on my rear foot above the mast. I moved it forward about 2 inches to what a lot of people recommend, lining up the center of balance of the board with the center of lift of the foil. With it pushed forward, it feels so much better to ride, but the breeching is worse. In both cases I'm standing forward of all the strap holes. I've heard sometimes boards and foils don't pair up well. I'm wondering if that's the case. I got some WizardHat trim plates to see if I could fix some of the issues. I haven't used them yet.

I'm running a 125l Naish hover board GS, 75cm mast, standard fuse, 440 rear, and obviously a 1060 front.

There's always the possibility that This is newbie problems, but I work harder to avoid breeching than I do to get up on foil or avoid touching down.

Are you using the straps in the naish? Their track is designed for naish foils so it's too far forward for most. My buddy had to add strap holes forward of the stock holes to correct the lift issue.
