Looks like Iíll be visiting califoilia soon then.

I have heard it surfs well from a prone surfer. Gotta be funny looking to see it twice as wide as the board. I love the idea of zero drag. It looks like it cuts so clean.
Looking forward to seeing you again cowboy! Yeah, stoked to get it in the surf tmrw (getting caught up with stuff at home after the long trip, and drive...phew!). Just not sure if the 5-6' surf we're getting this week is going to be the best conditions to try it out for the first time. 😜😧😄

Not too worried about the length, because I've had fun in the surf on ones close to the same size on either side of the 999 (980 and 1050)...should be super fun if it's half as good in the surf as it is with the wing, and DWing. 🤞🏽
Me: 6'1"/185...5'1" Kings Foil Board...5'7" Kings Foil Board...9'6" Bob Pearson "Laird Noserider"...14' Lahui Kai "Manta"...8'0" WaveStorm if/when the proning urges still hit.

I am dying to get a ride report for the 999 on a SUP... please keep us posted!

Initial review and video here....

Will do some additional experimenting with tails, possibly even mast placement, and report back if we find some remarkable difference.

Thanks!  Sounds like it may be game changing for winging and downwind but maybe not in the surf.  You running crazy short?

Actually, I can't wait to try it in the surf.
Foote 10'4X34", SIC 17.5 V1 hollow and an EPS one in Hood River. Foote 9'0" x 31", L41 8'8", 18' Speedboard, etc. etc.
