Pictures of the 2012 models. They are presented in 2 families, legacy design (Carafino, Magma, Moses-Ristafins-Skyski-MHL) and high-AR designs (Orana, Spotz, Zeeko, Radical).
Obviously, the French designers are 100% into the high-AR option...
I'm looking to buy my first foil and all the different shapes and styles is making choosing one difficult. Could Europ2 or someone else share some more information about the positives and negatives of high and low AR designs? I read some other information about high-AR designs having more lift and less drag, but also being more fragile.
I also noticed some foils are curved downwards and some are flat. What is the purpose of the downwards curve?
Some of the Tbar masts are angled or curved forward (Zeeko), some backwards (spotz), some straight (Magma) Is one better than the other? Easier to ride?
Any help would be appreciated.
