Looks like a great design. Has everything I'm looking for, 95cm mast, 800 sq cm wave wing, plate mount, stiff carbon construction and travel friendly. However, it appears they need to get more product into the market and obtain reviews. Watching with anticipation.

Few people would have put in as much water time on earth.

Didnt love it. In my opinion way too much lift. Also WAY too expensive. The connection system is similar to the way Spotz used to be and they had lots of issues with that.

I have the most time on the Armstrong Foils in Hawaii conditions and can tell you first hand that it is the strongest foil on the market by far. This foil will last a lifetime and your enjoyment and skills will grow exponentially as you get used to the super low speed high lift wing. Super loose turning but with stability and the ability to lay foil on its side for long extended hand drag transitions. Not many foils can say that. Breaks down for easy travel, add a 1600 wing and a 75cm mast and you can SUP foil or prone foil it. You will adapt to the low speed lift and the slower you go the more likely you will be to make more difficult transitions.
Foils are available now from Armstrong Foils directly or you can Get hold of MaloloHawaii.com and place an order in the U.S.http://malolohawaii.com/products/Armstrong-foils
