As I found out in a rented golf, assembled foils can go in most small or medium cars behind the front seats, front wing down, tail up, fuse roughly parallel to seat back. If you insist on a Porsche, fiat, or “smart”, though, good luck! Giant surf wings, ymmv

When I got my new Axis foil, I assembled it in the living room then when I tried to take it out to the car, I couldn't get it down the hallway :lol:

I bet. I’m looking forward to trying a bigger wing myself, see how that one goes...

Very interesting!
Next time I'll try to leave the mast connected.
With plate system this is the most time tedious part...

One of the benefits of a smaller board, is I haven't touched a wrench or screwdriver in 4 months. Fully assembled Groove skate + Moses 101 mast w 590/330 fit fine in the back of a BMW X3 and with all kinds of room in the back of a VW Atlas.
