Hi All guys!
I have read 3/4 discussion about beginner foil request before posting
I have read more than a time that cheaper beginner hydrofoil boards could discourage foiling and most experienced (and expensive) brands are a better choice
What are the best for beginner but good for progression HF boards in the high end(and so expensive) range? (but with very good quality/price ratio sure not looking for luxury or exceedingly expensive material with no real sense)
Which could be the most experienced brands where I can search?
Thank you again to share every time your experience!
You are right, the cheaper hydrofoils most often dont leave room for progression and a wider range of wings and stuff, and definitely not any high end ones available.
Fine if you just want to learn and then sell, like some do, but you seem to want to go to something that you can grow with, which is another good choice.
Zeeko has a wide range of foils and wings, both cheaper alu foils, and the expensive carbon - and several wings for most products.
Ketos is high end carbon all over, both foils and boards, and they got a big range of wings, all of them fully interchangable.
Price for the high end is about the same for these, and can recommend both as I have ridden many of above - use Ketos myself now as I am willing to pay for the high end products and they aim for the overall rider with many wings available for everything you want.
But the cheaper alu foils from Zeeko can only be recommended too, lots of experience and good products.
Whereas LF and Slingshot etc, are the ones you want to avoid - as you will get a cheap beginnerfoil yes, but no room for advancing or progressing to much better wings.
There are other high end brands, would just mention the two I know really well (and many others do too) and can recommend because of the versatility and wide range of products.
Most likely some will list other versatile brands in this thread too
