Pros cons
or perhaps better to compare the standard zeeko white and blue foil to the new spitfire. Both Alloy set ups.

Can you swap out the rear wing with other zeeko wings?

I was out this week in 5 degrees with a 3/2mm suit and no booties. I'd take that challenge!

Bravo Zeeko for breaking a foil "cage" and looking beyond borders!

In the video:
phpBB [video]

why does the rider use a board with three traps?
In my mind it would be much better with two or ZERO straps.
BTW. Is it too fast for waves anyway? I found slow foils working best in waves.

What is a weight of the set please?

Can anybody show a picture of the bard and foil set? It must look pretty weird though.

Pros cons
Was the plan. Although I really don't consider the Fluente a Wave oriented Foil. The Zeeko Caver is more in that direction.
