I just got back from my first session with my brand new F-One 800 Hybrid foil and it was well successful for about an hour with great riding. I started feeling very unstable on port tack after a while, and it just kept getting worse and worse. I came back to the beach and was shocked to see the main wing of the foil was no longer perpendicular to the mast! it was bent about 20˚ off. I felt it and for sure, it was lose in the socket of the mast, and rotated a good 20˚ over either side. there was no vertical/horizontal movement because of the shaft screw holding the foil together, but when I took the shaft out, the wing started bending as if the carbon fitment turned to soft rubber!! I don't dare trying to pull the foil apart becasue it looks as if it will just crumble. its as if the carbon just soaked up the water and turned to mush.
Absolutely BS, I am going to go try get the dealer I bought it from to sort me out, but knowing how people on this island work...
No doubt it was the smoothest damn ride I've had on a foil. but disappointing for a 2000$ foil.
As far as I can see there is nobody online with this problem, but if anyone knows F-One foils, id like to hear your views!
