New Foil board for plate system, which one?

Postby Pedro Marcos » Sun Jul 30, 2017 10:23 am

Hello everyone,

Im looking for a new Foil board, not full race, but with good race capabilities and also good for free-ride/freestyle.

What i want the board to be:

- Light !!
- Its needs to have tracks so i can adjust the position of the foil according to the winds im using,

Options i have found so far:

- Moses Comet ( i think its too small and narrow )
- Groove Kiteboards Race board on the bigger size (any reviews on this?)
- Levitaz Raze (expensive, maybe too race oriented)

- The Moses T60 i like alot, but unfortunately doesnt have tracks, which is a shame.

I would also consider ordering a custom board, if someone can point to a good size/shape, i dont want to "test" anything new, just use one that already works.

Thanks

The comet, groove and Raze are all full race boards

Very sure the t60 has tracks, why would Moses build a board with a box when NONE of there foils have heads,

Doesnt have tracks, it has 4 holes.

Hypermiler looks good, but it seems to be a little bit heavy at 3.5kg (i assume without straps)

Heavy is relative I guess, the Moses is 3.2kg without straps but also without tracks. The extra weight of the SS tracks is not swing weight so I doubt you would notice.
