I'd also suspect that any foil that floats has a buoyant material in its core, which is anathema to durability and stiffness.
Sorry must chime in and say some of the older Ketos thin boards will stay on their rail and NEVER have fuse sink!
We tested this in a pool.
This SAME set up is still flown often, jumped and works just fine.
It does make sense that a core that floats would seem weaker and if not made well yes, but not all the builds.
It would be an interesting spec feature to list board on side STRUT at fuse on surface in a pool timed to STRUT vertical.
For strapless water starts no question slower fuse sink is helpful.
great choice bamboo core!!
And while over all weight does not really affect performance for a noob, as one gets better weight will come into play and less than 5 kilos is SO nice!
