It looks like there's some manufacturing/destructiblily issues with the new north foil. Saw this on facebook where a guy softly hit a sandbank on his first run. I don't know why they'd use that composite instead of a cnc'ed alu fuselage other than it's cheaper to pump a mold full of resin.

This does not look good?

Second KBHF problem at NKB?

Just saw North foil.
Interesting how little surface area between F wing and fuse.
The board nose has a lot of flex.
Heavy as most alu set ups are.
F wing seems THICK!
Interesting mold joint? on fuse very noticeable.
Did not get to fly it as was cold and owner left before I could.
See Airush KBHF added.
