the front wings are still compatible with previous ones. same 40mm spacing and M8.

This year the freeride combo (new stabilizer and new freeride wing) provides a more 50-50% balanced ride and a higher top speed thanks to new profile.
it still starts very early in the wind range.

the freeride spacers are also injected instead of 3d printed.

yeah peter... you can see it on our FB page! but as a lighting kitefoil no... the board has too much drag compare to a normal kiteboard so better to use kitefoil board for kitefoil.

A windfoil and a SUP foil ...
Thought the same :thumb:

Just an big iSUP kitefoil I already tried myself and as Renaud said, it has way to much drag. But great for windfoil and combined with a sail like that

you won't need a bus anymore to carry your light wind windsurf equipment, enough to have a smart :D , who would have believed 10 years ago :thumb: . Days are close I switch back to windsurf, after 18 years of kiting. :D

@Renaud:

Big Fan of your work. :)
Is there already a timetable when you want to release your iWindfoil?

Your doing a good job here informing the people, just sometimes wonder a bit that there are just cruising videos with wide beginner-style boards around. Could imagine it would be good for the brand to have also some funny boosting or freestyle videos with your great gear. Maybe coming next, take time and have fun. :)

Can you make video footage how your SUP foil performs in waves? The only well performing SUP foil AFAIK is GoFoil...
