Hey Soran,
Your facebook like is cut off and goes to a nonexistent page. Could you post it again?

Gong boards look nice and the price seems correct because no middle man?
And this guy is flying in ultra low wind on VERY long lines! :thumb:

I would love to repost the facebook link, but I am stuck in Greenland with a lousy internet connection and blocked facebook access.

Got to test my new anhedral wing (the barrel one) just before I left Denmark. My setup still is challenging when it comes to roll stability (not Yaw as I wrote in my formes post).

Now having experienced similar problems with a flat wing and with an extreme anhedral wing I am considering to try some thing in between - like every body else.

Looking to get back from the snow and the ice and do some serious testing!

Succeded to get through the local facebook block. So here is a repost of the link for our facebook group and a photo of the finished barrel wing.

Love the speed puck mount. I'd like one, even if it just confirms how slow I am!

See new foil from Spain.
New proto from sword seen with L E of strut almost directly over T E of front wing.
New boards and wings from Ketos.
Incredably well made foil from Austria, levitaz if I read correctly?
The carbon work was a sight to be seen! :thumb:
Super small diameter inox, S S fuse.
Photos to come.
Does anyone know this? :?:

Seen at Ciotta event,

Sorry I did not take better photos because this is the highest quality workmanship I have ever seen in a kiteboardhydrofoil.
The Inox, S S rod that is the fuse is about 1 cm at the rear wing.
We were told at first it was from Switzerland and later Austria?
I googled but could not find any info.
The beauty of the carbon work was fantastic!
There is uni on all the perimeters of the wings.
I love to test all foils but this, to bad we did not.
I would say that if it flies as good as it looks the guy has a winner but, how much does it cost?
My guess is a lot!

@ revhed: the foilboard is austrian made, in salzburg. the first proto was competing in 2010 in la coitat. there is almost no info out since there is no serial production yet, but there will be. they are not for sale yet and there is no price tag that i know of. my foilboard is one of the few protos :D

Have you flown other foils and can give a comparaison, Objective maybe?
As I said that foil is simply superbe looking. :!:
The uni on the wings is so pretty and functional.
Do you have any better photos to share?
