What are the main differences between the two? I already have a liquid force kitefish, so I would only have to buy the mast and foil. But, if the manta is the better option I'd rather make that purchase.

Just to make it even more difficult, zeeko just announced the launch of a cheaper foil at less than 800 euros tax incl. Even including the screwdriver.

Renaud from TheKiteFoil was the zeeko foil designer, but now has his own company. Is he still designing for Zeeko as well?

Is the new Zeeko foil all carbon?

note that zeeko foil is aluminum and I am not the designer. I guess it will be available just before summer.
this year I stopped designing and producing for zeeko and started Thekitefoil brand. the arrow and manta foils are in stock as we speak. and there is free shipping worldwide for foil kits.
can be ordered from http://www.thekitefoil.com


Comparing manta to LF...well I would not give my point of view but surely people will say it on my behalf :lol:

it's not only matter of the foil but also of the board.
when you think about it, at 700 USD we have a board which is like a race board with proper rocker, concaves and volume compared to a twin top / skim board one...

just my 2 cents...

Will the Manta easily mount and successfully fly with the liquid force kitefish?

yes I should as it has the same hole distance as far as I know. I don't have a liquid force next to me right now, if you can measure the holes distances and diameter, I can reconfirm for you.

we have zeeko and carafino holes distances.

in any case even if it wasn't we can customize the plate.

Dear,

I'm Nicolas, the owner of Zeeko.

For information, Renaud designed and produced Zeeko hydrofoil the last years. As we wanted to be closer to the production lines, starting from the 2015 season we are producing alloy and Carbon hydrofoil in Europe.
All the 2015 zeeko designs are made by Zeeko, and production is controlled directly at the factory by our team.

Ride easy
Nicolas
