The largest version of the Spitfire for SUP and SURF foiling.
This XXLW version was said to be 1300 sq cm area, which I guess is the total wing area of both wings. The XLW is 800 sq cm total - if I remember right?

I'd like to know where the centre of lift of the Spitfires is - relative to the leading edge of the upright strut/mast? It should put less fore and aft load on the mounting box and mast?

Special prize for the first Kiter to use it and video, preferably with gps...

The centre of lift of the first/smaller Spitfire is approximately at the same position to the box as usual - which is clever, as it can be used straight away on any board, which I did :thumb:

I dont know about the XL wings, if the same ?

Is the AVS going to be as effective on the Spitfire as it is on the Blaster?

Very interesting. I’m thinking the xxlw for my intro to kitefoiling. I was interested to see the video cuts away each time there is a front wing breech. It would be good to see the full edit showing the end of each ride, falls and all.

Want to know when the xxlw is available !!!!!!

I have a blue & white edition Zeeko foil. Looking to make a more serious attempt to get into foiling this year. I am wondering about the usefulness of a 60cm mast, both for learning & for using in shallower water. Is it still possible to get a blue & white compatible 60cm mast somewhere? Are there any other brands that have a mast compatible with the Zeeko? Also, would getting a bigger wing - like the Carver - make sense for learning & for future versatility? Thanks!

Hi,
All the ZEEKO alloy masts are compatible. Even the mast from Bullet, which has a different profile, can be used on other ZEEKO alloy foils.
