Our new, highly accessible BLASTER hydrofoil is perfect for beginners because of its ease and sturdiness, but also for the more experienced looking for fun and good sensations.
The foil has been developed for maximum stability, a low take-off speed and low speed riding, allowing you to progress calmly.
The wings are machined to reduce ventilation as they come out of the water. This innovation is especially suitable for beginners who do not manage the balance of the foil correctly.

Wonder why they made the new alloy foil a different wing attachment than the previous models. Doesn't look like you can put the carver wing on that one.

The zeeko website copy indicates the design is to lessen drag versus the older configuration -- the new wing connection and shorter fuse are claimed to make it faster and maneuverable.
Personally I like the shorter fuse and vertical stabilizer fin on top configuration. The longer the fuse, the harder it is to start in shallow water, and a fin below it increases this problem. With the wide stab, though, any shallow water advantage may be lessened as the stab tips may ground.
Makes you glad they at least have one m6 screw on the stab.
The main wing being on top, makes me think I might have to check the screws more often!
But it’s been done before and I haven’t heard a lot of stories of bent screws or lost wings. Still, I wonder about it.
The wing looks a lot like the carver, which I like, since I like my carver wing a lot.
The blaster wing area is given as 750cm2 —actually bigger than the carver (710cm2). Hopefully the takeoff speed is as low, too.
The video of the AVS in action makes it look effective. Sounds like a good product to me.

I wish they published the weight though.
I would guess it is between 3.75 and 3.9kg...
M. Caillou, am I right?

So the new alloy foil basically comes stock with a big wing. Got it.
