Very interesting post.
Could you please post a top view of the front Wing ? Very interested by the outline.
Would you have the front Wing chord, just to estimate the surface ?
Thanks.
You know you can just see that on the gofoil.com website,right :-)

Span is 65cm
Chord ist 23cm

The Standard Zeeko Plate has no sleeve for the Mast, so it cannot take the forces involved if SUPFOILING or Windfoiling.

Here is the standard 2017 Zeeko Mast to plate connection:

Here is the WindFoil plate:
