Hey folks,

Have got an HA925 and 1125 for foiling and winging. Its my first Armstrong setup, moving from a lower aspect surf-style foil.

Today's session a bit hit-and-miss, not that conditions were great, a lot of seaweed and light flukey westerlies.

Seeking advice on a few points after today's kite session on HA925:

1. Shimming - didn't realise that the A+ setup is a negative 1 deg out the bag, spent half the session fighting to keep the foil down and then came in and after a quick google have put in a 0.5deg shim. Was definitely better but wondering whether i should go neutral. Hard to tell as i'm not used to the foil. Any recommendations on setup for kiting?

2. Mast location - using the axis tray 94, usually i find i have to have my duotone carve right at the back of the track as otherwise my feet are too far forward. Think i might need the armstrong high aspect wing a bit further forward. anyone have feedback with this or another pocket board?

I feel like a kook again, footswaps and tacks out the window!

Chem recommend u post in wingfoil section... Few still kite. They have been fairly active on these foils..
Me. Position for feet then wing.. Shimming becomes stable and intuitive. On 1125 would shimm to hold down try 1.5deg.
Cheers

Cheers, yep i decided same thing and posted within a winging HA thread also. went for a session yesterday with 0.5 shim in (=-0.5) and mast closer to middle of box, was much nicer.

1125 is for winging once i'm a bit better at it, and prone once i can afford a board
