I would add one comment here. I have done 38 kph on the Model P foil. I didn't hit 30 knots yet. My personal best on the model f is 53 kph

No Jacksons have shipped yet, we should start shipping next week.
145 Jackson is around 3.8 kg and the 120 around 3.3 kg.
Mark, can you also provide weight for the Model F and P for 60 and 90 cm?

Ordered the new Shinn Jackson in the 145/90/p wing set up through my local shop after receiving really positive feedback. It'll be my first foiling effort so hoping it's a bit more learner friendly than some AND allow me good progression...

is there any chance for Shinn to have a slit foil board like Nobile Zen?
If not , is Shinn foil compatible with Zen board. Need that for ease of travel.
thank you

Hi Blu, at this time there is no plan for a Shinn split
Board. Yes, our foil will fit the Nobile board as it has the most common 165x90 plate screw dimensions.
I can't tell you the exact foil weight right now but it should be around 3.4kg.

Hi Mark, my local store in Toronto still doesn't have new boards and foils :( :( :( . If there is a delay in manufacturing them, do you know when they will start shipping?
Thanks!

Hi Aleks, yes we had some production delays.
I think we will ship to Canada in the next 10 day.
Apologies for the wait!

Hi Mark, I'm thinking of getting model F foil with Jackson board, but I'm a bit concerned about its durability for jumping. I do around 200 jumps per session (yes, on the foil board :D ), some over 10 meters with 7-8G landings. Usually wings hit the water first, sometimes sideways sometime flat on. My Zeeko foil Blue front wing broke around the bolts - bolts heads went through the top of the wing because it wasn't reinforced enough there. I had to put in snowboarding washers there, so now it holds rock solid :D . May this happen to Model F wing as well and would it be covered by warranty if it does? Would you recommend getting model F to people who jump on foil?

Thanks!

Hi Aleks,
Blazej and I are both pretty keen jumpers with the foil, during the shoot in Kenya we spent many sessions on the F model boosting. Jumping with the foil puts alot of stress on the junctions but till this time we have not had a single failure from jumping. It is VERY important to ensure all the screws are tight between sessions.
The Model F Foil was designed for free ride and that includes jumping,
