There are many good foils out there and their performance characteristics vary quite a bit. May get more answers if you state specifically what you are looking for.Da Yoda wrote: ↑Sun Mar 11, 2018 9:26 pmThere's about 20 brands (that I know of) offering an alloy hydrofoil. I've read through some reviews and forum posts and I'm curious who's offering the best ones for 2018. My feel is the new Zeeko Bullet and LF Thruster are the top offerings right now. I've also read some good things about the Axis Freeride. Are there any others that should be considered? If so, why?
Sidenote: I've noticed some brands only offer 80cm lengths. What's the trend now? Is 90cm+ overkill? Thanks!
Sorry for my ignorance, but I'm new to hydrofoiling.
Thank you all for chiming in. Being new to foiling, I know I don't need top shelf performance. However I'd like to get something that I won't grow out of and appreciate that it's well regarded.Kamikuza wrote: What he said re. specifics.
I agree the hoverfoil is superb and will sell on easily, I sold mine on the beach after learning to sail both way.
I wouldn't worry about growing out of your beginner foil. I have several buddies who have been thinking about which foil to get for over a year now worrying they'll get the wrong one! Just get a cheap used one and get out on the water, you'll be happy you did.
