@carafino - have u been olaying around with the radius of the arc.. It may just be the angle but the arc looks more pronounced on the photos from Japan..

the Australian guys all have their Boards and Foils, they are very happy.

the Foil strut/ post is nice and rigid with minimal torsion or flex. For the money its a great buy.

Well done to Carafino.

""for the money""" so if it were priced like all the others at 3k more or less, it would not be worth it? i've not seen a post any where from some one who owns one and rides it. i know a guy....i got an email two days ago that said i would be getting a tracking number on my foils very soon.

Thats good news! Which setup do you have? Im getting the impression that the freeride setup is good, but not sure about the race setup.

I have had my Carafino for 2 weeks so far and have had the best luck with both the large front and rear wings. Has anyone had success with the high wind wings yet? (with or without shims)

Thanks,
Marcus
