Hard to ride? I was upwind first session. :)

What they use in advertising is not necessarily what they sell.
They sent me a crookedly drilled one, and after much wrangling, they replace it with a very flexible one.

So what is the deal with MHL? I've seen lots of good reviews except for the isues Hawaiis has had. Anyone else had issues with MHL.

Hawaiis, did they finally set things right for you or did you get screwed with a faulty product?

I got screwed big time. The MHL carbon fiber looking board is only a single layer, I can actually see thru the carbon fiber. They said the ones they made now are stronger, but when I contact them to offer to purchase the stronger version, they said it is still under development. Go figure.

Man, that is very bad of them! I bought my MHL Lift a year ago and have had no problems. It seems their quality has gone out the window since then?

I don't care if it is cosmetically flawed, but rigidity is very important for a hydrofoil.

You sent them the video and the pictures and they didn't let you return the board?

I bought a Moses foilboard. I'm loving it: priced correct and awesome build quality! Really recommended.
