Look carefully at each.
Read everything you can find about each,company history regarding KBHFs, reviews, ect.
If all goes as planned I,we will test fly this and hopefully many others and will post reviews next week.
I personally do not like the L F board at all and flat, almost flat wings even less.

Personally I don't put much weight in reviews. Just get something and starting riding. You will learn a lot quicker that way. :-)

Wait as long as you possibly can. I know a number of new foils coming online May/June. IMO, purchase a second hand MHL Lift or LF as once you learn, you will likely upgrade anyway.

Disagree and would say the exact opposite - it does not matter much what you get.

What matters is to get the one you can get fast, as every minute you wait, is a minute wasted where you could be hydrofoiling :D

Almost like waiting for new and better computers, thus never getting one :(

Just don't get one that is too small, if you want it to be easy and also work in light wind.

Actually I agree - The sooner you get started, the sooner you will be foiling. Just got to see some new foils coming soon and was blown away. The second hand MHL Lift's seem to be good value while maintaining their resale value.
