The largest version of the Spitfire for SUP and SURF foiling.
This XXLW version was said to be 1300 sq cm area, which I guess is the total wing area of both wings. The XLW is 800 sq cm total - if I remember right?

I'd like to know where the centre of lift of the Spitfires is - relative to the leading edge of the upright strut/mast? It should put less fore and aft load on the mounting box and mast?

The centre of lift of the first/smaller Spitfire is approximately at the same position to the box as usual - which is clever, as it can be used straight away on any board, which I did :thumb:

I dont know about the XL wings, if the same ?

Is the AVS going to be as effective on the Spitfire as it is on the Blaster?

Very interesting. I’m thinking the xxlw for my intro to kitefoiling. I was interested to see the video cuts away each time there is a front wing breech. It would be good to see the full edit showing the end of each ride, falls and all.

Want to know when the xxlw is available !!!!!!

I have a blue & white edition Zeeko foil. Looking to make a more serious attempt to get into foiling this year. I am wondering about the usefulness of a 60cm mast, both for learning & for using in shallower water. Is it still possible to get a blue & white compatible 60cm mast somewhere? Are there any other brands that have a mast compatible with the Zeeko? Also, would getting a bigger wing - like the Carver - make sense for learning & for future versatility? Thanks!

Hi,
All the ZEEKO alloy masts are compatible. Even the mast from Bullet, which has a different profile, can be used on other ZEEKO alloy foils.
