once up to a real lick it seems to be a little off. I need to play about with the rear wing.
I've heard the same thing from someone else that got one. He said roll stability is a problem
I think I got to the bottom of the problem.
I was finding that when going off the wind I was having to put a lot of pressure on my back foot to keep stability. Yesterday it was really nice 15m conditions and flat so I had a play about with the rear strap. I put the rear strap back back to one screw from the rear and the front of the strap I put back 2 holes so the strap was tighter.
At first it felt odd as I was wider on my stance but upwind and more importantly, downwind, the ride was faster and much more stable. I didn't have my GPS on but I felt a lot faster and was more stable.
I guess more weight over the back is what's needed in my case. I am using the board that came with my Spotz 2.
Nice review Tone. I felt the same way after upgrading from Spotz2 to Tuna. The fuselage/ mast/ wing junction was so much stiffer that it was immediately noticeable how much more stable it was and tacks and gybes were definitely easier. I look forward to trying the Shark, but I am really happy with the stability/ carve-ability ratio of the Tuna so I don't want to trade in too much more turnability since the stability is already good enough for me but I'm more surfer than racer.
It work direcly out of the box, just some setup with the stab.
I receipt it the day before the hydrofoil pro tour in france (because my sword RS break..) and i only do race.
After 1 month of use, i try to do some speed.. vmax=34.04 after few run.. one weeks later >36knot ! So i can pretty say that the foil works directly out of the box lol..
The main thing that impress me is the v500 v10s v100 that we can reach with it ! I'm over 32knot on v500 now .. (I was on spotz Tuna just before this one.. on my vmax was 32knot.. so i beat my vmax.. on 500m lol )
