How many different tools do you need to assemble that one? What is provided?
Came in a zipppered suitcase thing to ship and store the foil, disassembled. Space in there for a short mast and a spare wing. Not really practical for daily use, as it you'd have to completely break the foil down. I bought the foil cover for like $70.

Inside the suitcase was a little plastic box that contained the Torx wrench (one size, for all the bolts on the foil) and a syringe of TefGel and instructions, and of course all the bolts. I think that's it...

Board came with straps and screws: they're very basic, but are just what the LF straps were, without the fancy bits eg. manufacturers logos and ends covers. I think I like 'em more than my plush SS straps, although I'm not jumping and really only use the fronts for water starts. Minimalism.

Can't remember which box had the board/mast bolts and runners, but those are regular large Plus head bolts. Regular TT screwdriver fits, not included but I'm sure they world if you asked! I've got an Axis screwdriver so my OCD is satisfied...

No deck pad on the board. It's the clear-coated sugar style concept... I was wortried it would be abrasive on my too soft feet, but it's not harsh at all.

Yeah similar eh... though the Axis shares more ideas in common with the Alpine Access: recessed mast/fuse and rear wing mount, and (most important for my peace of mind) collar on the plate.

And it's red. Red is better. Red is faster. Everyone knows that.
