The aspect of the foil seems high enough, that should please some people here!

Hi Carafino,

What is the foil made out of?

Is it Carbon?

Thanks

The high aspect race wing that he shows is still the same one that sword called him out on as a copy/identical bar the sticker as their own high speed wing....

Congratulation & you have now proved your critics are full of it.. :o :evil:
Cannot wait to get my 2 foils ,with race & freestyle wings & the 2 boards , :heartface:
especially for jumping as the other manufactures have told me you jump , no warranty . :D
By the way you new light wind race board is an out of the box idea & should have a lot less drag when you hit a wave :heartface: , cannot wait to get one of those as well :jump:

Foil looks Nice, otherwise race wings is not for race, that is speed wings from Taaroa.

It has been developped for speed crossing, so you will go fast but with less stability and less upwind.

So good luck if you try to make race with it :-) it´s good to know your products before sell it.

Otherwise, the foil with freeride wings will be nice for beginner, Nice job

The Speed racing wings are all naturally higher aspect ratio so I wouldn't say, that's from Taaroa :wink:
Besides that how do you know it is less stable with a curved and wider geometry mast at the fuselage,
and jumping to a conclusion without people giving reviews and feedback on it :?: Just saying :alarm:

Ok, if you look at the high aspect wing in this recent vid and then look at the previous vid where mango shows off 'his' high aspect wing only for Tarroa to pitch in with the simple fact that they were a Tarroa design with a carafino sticker on them.

This is not in doubt.

So when the same wings appear In this video I think it is reasonable for Tarroa to be able to pass comment on the wings intended use and performance (as the designer).

The wings and fuselage should be designed as a cohesive unit the idea of slapping on a non standard part (another designers) to your own foil and flogging it as a race weapon is plain stupid.

The idea that some of you actually believe what is being said by mango is even more laughable.

Funny how the opening song choice seems to sum it up just fine.
If the "boat board" was tested as claimed in the video with the old style foil as seen in the video, why was the new t arch also not tested and at least one picture or better a video taken.
Better yet, why not attach a new t arch to the "boat board and test the the 2 together and provide pictures and or video.
I hear wind in the video and beautiful sea just begging to be flown in with a new product.
And promo picts and video for a 1 week sale would seem logical.
Over 4000 views and 9 pages pertaining to the logo, but in the video?
