Taaroa releases Sword RS - Pro race foil and board

Looks like they just have some marketing illustrations right now and no other info: http://www.taaroa-hydrofoil.com/fr/

Can't help but remark at the similarities between the gull wing shape and what Mike Zajicek is up to...

Interesting.
A year ago Taaroa and Spotz were winning all the races but not this year. Maybe this will put Taaroa back in the race.
I can't tell from the picture if the fuselage and mast disconnect (like the Taaroa Joy) which would be nice for travelling.
Good to see the pointy nose (from the old Sword2 and Joy) gone. It never did anything anyway.

;-) CG
(I am currently riding on a Taaroa Joy and happy with it)

The foil looks nothing like Mikes Lab.

The board however, looks a mirror image

Less anhedral as they evolve. Some on the other end of the spectrum with the new Canard Zeeko having flat wings.
