Had the new 110 wing out today in waves and almost popped my brain out with a grin that took over my head. Lordy, what an amazing foil for waves! The carving drops are insane! Just insane! All I can think is foiling that wing for the rest of the day.

Nice,

They really do look like a nice foil for the carvers.

From what I can see they are the best price point for a carbon foil. So far all reports are stellar too. Looks like good value.

Alloy foil I would still give it to Zeeko for value, but I have one so am biased.

I ordered 150 with 32"mast as my first foil for learning. Is that good choice for 78kg rider?

I got the 130 wing and 36 in mast. This is my first foil so nothing to compare it to but in my opinion it rides great. It took me about 4 sessions to get the thing figured out but am now able to upwind, downwind and tack both ways pretty confidently.

Heres a clip of the foil in action in 13-15 mph winds

I have the 110. It's a dream compared to my prior foil, which was the LF Rocket. It is lively and responsive, and I can carve it so much quicker than the LF. It's also much faster than the LF, has more lift, and is much lighter. I couldn't be happier with it.
