In the 2. picture it looks to me that the 1. foil is a performance foil mounted with a race back wing, the 2. foil (in the middle) is a race foil, and the 3. foil (nearest camera) is a performance foil. ??

My friends received 8 foil assemblies with wings yesterday to go with their boards that arrived earlier. Unfortunately some of the mounting hardware is missing so they are trying to get that sorted out.

There are two front wings. One is a bigger flat one that undoubtedly gets the rider up foiling earlier and may be easier for a beginner. Like all flat wings (such as the MIHL Lift) it will have maximum speed limitations. The other front wing is smaller and undoubtedly faster since it appears to have a foil shape.

I will post a short review as soon as I can borrow one of these things and try it.

:wink: CG
