Thanks for the replies. I measured my LF foil and the mounting holes are 90x140 and not the 120 I thought they were. Looks like there's plenty of room to drill holes for the 75x120 dimensions.

Great looking Spleene setup kruzlifix!

Just saw this on the Spleene site, the "Surf Door". Guess that's the new wave board mentioned a few threads back?

The new surfdoor looks like a mini Meyerhoffer (surfboards). I know that the Meyerhoffer works a treat. Yhey look really funky but they supposedly surf really well. In either case it is great to see Spleene exploring new idea with their boards...always leaders in this sense. Respect!

Shinn Shinnster meets Tomo.
Hard to see what this is without a shot of the rocker line.

Oh Spleene! What have you done! :(

As a self-proclaimed Zone aficionado and owner of the original 174x44, Zone 5'6 and SurfDoors 5'1 and 5'7 I was pretty stoked to see an update on the site a month back mentioning a new Zone was coming. I was dreaming of a new carbon Zone in a PVC foam construction similar to last gen but with better foil mount option.

And this is what they relased: https://www.spleene-kiteboarding.com/wp ... oard-zone/

Disappointed but still intrigued. Wonder which Airex foam core they're using? With the thickness and volume I’m guessing it’s not the C70 PVC. Probably overkill to use that foam but would be neat if it was thin and had foil mounts.

Hope all of you hate this version too! Then I can score one on eBay cheap like I did the others! :lol:
