Lift foil factory after hurricane?

Postby yomotha » Mon Sep 25, 2017 3:34 pm

Does anybody know how the Lift factory held up after the latest hurricane? Their factory burnt down last year and they rebuilt and now the hurricane basically destroyed the island.... ouch!

Been wondering the same thing. No response on FB and phone goes to busy immediately. They are great guys, great foils and they have amazing service. I hope it works out for them.

Hopefully everything is alright, but until they post to fb it's probably best to let them deal with more pressing concerns.

Recently I received an email from a Chinese Factory that claims they are producing foils for Lift, so I think that this time around they should be ok, as the their production will not be affected by any damages to the local factory.

Yes 2017+, foils made in China

Boards I think are still made in PR, hence the price
