Slingshot H4

Has anyone ridden or seen the H4 from SS in person? Thinking about one for surfing behind the boat, surfing in the ocean and kiting for lowered. I have the stock NF2 front wing / wakefoiler setup right now but curious if anyone has any thoughts or experiences with this foil.

Thanks!
Dave

Seen it in person and have spoke with the lucky individual using it. Loves it ! Slow and surfy , cant wait to try it. I have a picture of it also but have promised not to share it until the official release.

Confusion!! Why not have a simple chart of the SS wings! It's impossible to understand.

My interpretation of SS website:
H1: "surf, sup, wave rider" (stock high wind windsurfer wing) (H5?H1<H2)
H2: "larger wing, more lift, user friendly performance" (stock light wind windsurf wing) (H1<H2<H4)
H3: "faster flying, higher performance" (no idea how big it is. Looks higher aspect-ratio)
H4: "surf, wake, sup" (H4>all)
H5: stock hoverglide wing (H5?H1<all others)

Still confused. And $550 seems too expensive for just a wing...

If I want a nice big slow $550 wing, choose slingshot branded Phoenixdragon/sublimation/evaporation/dim-sum/mushu pork wing
$300 and maybe...
$500+ For just the wing makes the EU and US made ones sound more attractive....

I pulled the trigger today from Real... should be able to ride it on Friday behind the boat. This is the NF2 behind the boat at 18mph boat speed for comparison. Can't wait to try it with a kite in some surf.

That was my read based on their website too.

Still confused. H1 and H4 are the same?
