Anyone have any reviews on the Infinity Foil Split board or the new Skim Foil board from Nobile?

Do you mean the Zen split board? I'm currently travelling with it on a motorcycle on my way south to Argentina. I love it and can't think of any other way I could have brought a hydrofoil setup with me on this trip. A big surprise was how fun the Board was without the foil. Really easy to ride strapless and is great in lightwind. The setup is a little heavy but it's help up extremely well to the 3000 miles of Mexican roads I've taken it on so far.

Well the Zen is the hydrofoil part, I'm actually just interested in the board http://nobilekiteboarding.com/products/ ... board.html

I'd like to know if it works with the Zeeko Spitfire or the LF foil?

Is the balance point right for the straps with these foils? It looks like it has no options for where you mount the mast or straps.

I'm not sure on the balance but I would also like to know with the spitfire. I'm learning to ride it strapless and I'll later add my own inserts. From Nobile there is no adjustment for the mast or straps.

the LF base plate dimensions are not the same as the Zen foil
I know the Moses fits as I've tried it.
check the screw spacing, its pretty much the same as most except LF

@Adventure Logs,

I also consider the Skim Foil, but see you can get a All-Round and a Freeride version. Which of the two do you have?
Have you tried them both and can compare them?

Thanks, K

Did anyone try attaching a 2015 Lift foil to the nobile infinity split or the skim board? Lift strut plate holes are 165x90 and should match the Nobile board spacing. I am interested in getting the infinity split or skim for traveling with my Lift foil.

I am interesting in a Ketos foil and would be interested if anyone has any experience.

From what I understand, it is not necessarily the mast location that is important. Each foil can locate the foil wing a different distance forward of the mast. So it is really the plate to wing placement that really matters with balance.
