Now I can concentrate on your post, Pirk.
Yes, the theory is correct, but I sometime hear that anhedral improves stability of foils, something I don't believe myself.
Recently, I've swapped the Freeride (which has anhedral) wing for the Carver (flat) of my Zeeko foil. Didn't really notice roll stability improvement. Should actually compare with the earlier B&W Freeride wing, which is flat.
I got this from I cannot remember where (probably Zeeko's site):
Zeeko Black&White vs Blue&White Alloy 2016:
- Black&White has more roll stability, due to straight/flat frontwing its better for beginners and freeriders, easier to learn new manoeuvres
- Blue&White is due to anhydral frontwing more agile but a bit less roll stability, harder to learn new manoeuvres
Incidentally, with the Carver wing, the pitch stability seems improved and, surprisingly, I'm not so scared of speed as much. I guess its angle of attack is probably not the same relative the the stabiliser. Need to measure precisely. I love the Carver btw.

Sorry pirk, I know what you mean, but in order to avoid misunderstanding, I suggest you use proper terminology.
I edit the post to reflect your suggestions.
