Steamroller - thanks for the photos, super helpful.  Which tail is that in the pictures narrow or wide?  have you tried both?

Hi Steamroller. Could you tell me the distance from the front of the wing to the front of the mast please? Interested for the setup of my homemade GL wing. Many thanks for answering all my annoying questions :D

Don't know how we missed these that Jason posted to youtube... part 2 of the release video at Hi Tec... probably adds even more confusion to the 180 vs. 210 vs. 240 decision and gives details about the tail...

i never realized just how much Ooomph the GL210  has over the Maliko200 till i saw myself on video racing....my friend keola used to smoke me and my Maliko200 in a drag race every time on his Naish Thrust L on a prone board...used to keep up with me easily on a wave then when we hop over the back to run for the 2 for1 he would always get there first...BUT...

now....the GL 210 comes with TURBO!!!!

He's killing it on that Naish L. What one? The original Yellow or the newer red one?

Nice video, Steamroller.  Watching all the high aspect wings in the M2O video and how the glides go on forever is something else, too!

Great comparison!  Much better than the subjective "It's just faster and looser and . . . ."

Hdip: hes on the 2019 wing i thonk it  is...black with white stripes underneath and the tips have a red band and gray wide stripe...


also we raced again today at 1 foot malibu except.i rode my Maliko200....i got absolutely SMOKED....he ran away from me like i was standing still...im.now convinced its.is.ALL ABOUT THE EQUIPMENT....because i can jam on the foil and dig dig dig with the paddle.but there was no way i could keep up with him on the Maliko200....2 for 1s were a struggle where the GL210 2 for 1 s are a normal thing...of course im goimg.for a 2 for.1 with the GL210...i always do...the Maliko200 definitely has a.place ...its the absolutely best for learning to SUP.foil but once you ride the GL210....im pretty much never ever going to ride the Maliko200 again...totally spoiled now...

Still no specs and pricing of the new wings?
And when will they be available?

Feel free to share the specs if you know them....

SanoSlatchSup commented earlier in the thread:

"I saw a price sheet that had the GL180 front wing w/cover listed at $750, the GL210 front wing w/cover for $800, and the 18N or 18W tail wing w/cover at $165 a piece. So at a minimum of $915, it's gonna be just one set for me, and why I want to make sure I get it right the first time. "

A buddy of mine let me know that the Go Foil Europe page has been updated with the GL wings:
