Are you having problems with your foil falling apart after a few months?
Austin Dalbey at 220 lbs (100 kgs ) demonstrates the strength of a Go Foil and Aguera Boards.

It does look cool,
But,I think by the time you make it strong enough to lift your ass out of the water,they all do that.

How much does it weigh? How is it built differently than other carbon foils?

The Go Foil with both wings attached is in the 6 to 7 lb range.
The foils are built in one shot so that all of the carbon and fiberglass cores are totally stuck together. There are no foams inside which are what some foils are built with for their cores which can degrade over time or split apart when hitting something and separating the two halves.
