Foil SUP / Re: JL Flying V weight
« on: September 21, 2021, 06:13:43 PM »
Carbon and non carbon are the same weight - 15,5 lbs. Amazing foil sup.
Donít waste money on carbon - itís more fragile than classical construction.

Agreed, skip carbon.

Foil SUP / Re: Naish S26 Hover for SUP foiling?
« on: September 07, 2021, 02:56:38 AM »
Badger - I think it should be fine, I'm on a comparable, albeit less volume 6'5" Flying-V and I'm going further down in volume/size. I'm the same weight as you. The width really helps, you will find it difficult to go back to your normal SUP probably after getting used to the shorter length/width. I think you are on a Super Frank, when I went back to mine (7'6" x 30" SF Lean) it was pretty tough to get my balance back.

So, yeah......the foil helps quite a bit too.

Mine has been collecting dust. Actually sold my SF, because foiling replaces the size range I use it for. Still have my JL SuperTech, I've been out on it maybe at most 5 sessions since I started foiling.

I sold my 7'6 x 31" SF a few months ago to help pay for my foiling gear. My 6'4 x 31" Naish with the foil on it feels like it has about the same stability but I haven't tried it in the ocean yet. Good to know that the S26 might work for me. I couldn't find a single video of anyone using it with a paddle.

That's okay if it messes up my SUP surfing.  SUP is getting old.  I'm ready to become a foiler.   :)

Foil SUP / Re: Next wing after Maliko 200 - Progression

👍 I tried shimming this and that but I think Gofoil is perfect at its default settings. But thatís just my opinion.

Yeah, I mean......I changed two variables at once which I typically don't like to do (new 1.5 plate mount pedestal vs. 1.0) and the tail, but it was the best session in rather shitty conditions I've had in awhile. No more humming, nice and stiff in the water on the mast. I have as a general rule in smalish surf moved the plate to almost the very front of the box, I feel like it has helped the GL210 get going initially. It took some sessions but now I'm done with the Maliko.

I have a Iwa wing someone traded me for the 14.5 flip tip, I may try it out in bigger surf.

Foil SUP / Re: Wing Drifter Pro?
« on: August 17, 2021, 06:04:03 AM »
Another great board line are the Amundson Johno Sups.  The 5'9" x 28 113 board is probably doable for a 170-190 lbs with good sup skills and would be easy to learn winging on.  I'm 185 and have the 5'6".  Really perfect for winging, but for sup there's no way I could have learned to sup foil on it.  And unless I catch just the right wave, and get flying out the back, paddling is pretty difficult.  Shape wise, the Drifter Pro is flatter rocker and wider tail looking at the profiles, compared to the Johno with a wider nose and narrower tail (more like a Kalama.).  Functionally, the DP has a shorter water line in the wave as you angle your take off when the wave pitches. I find this type of board more difficult to paddle into a wave because it doesn't want to surf and is instead meant to lift before the wave pitches.  This means you have to get on foil or eat it.  Bottom contour discussion alone on foil boards is a bit of a joke imo, but taken as a whole of the board design, a certain concave in the nose or tail release point could be the standout feature.  My summary, without any experience on the Drifter, is it's more of a wing foil board and advanced sup board.  It looks cool, and I'd trust Keith's board design ability way more than my unproven theory!

Good point, and honestly, that drawn in tail on the Kalamas is helping to reduce a bit of volume in areas where it's not needed. I'll check the Amundson's out, I wonder if the Kalamas are being built a bit lighter. The only person I know around here that got one (and I'm not sure if it was the 1st or 2nd gen) hated it because of it's weight.

Yeah, I was looking at the Kalama's since he seems to be one of the few sticking with a SUP-dedicated foil board. I'm really between 3 boards (currently on the 6'5" Flying-V, which I really love, just want a smaller overall footprint/swing weight):

5'11" Flying-V @105L. pretty hard to find right now, and is worth spending that much for a 6"/10L drop?

5'8" Quattro Wing Drifter V1.2 @115L, that's a ton of volume, not sure how smooth it would be for paddling, I'd probably do it over the 5'6" to be safe. Any idea on weight?

5'11" F-One Rocket Wing - mainly bc of the 6.2 kg weight, although I bet the 105L JL is right around that.

Any thoughts? I'd wait on Kalama, but I feel like I'm losing sessions I could be progressing on. The 6'5" is great, but I could definitely go down in volume/size.

Try 17.5 tail, makes a huge difference in pumping for me compared to 14.5

Good call - night and day, got the 17.5 works perfect. No washer/shim adjustments yet. Thanks.

I'm looking at the 5'6" for SUP foil, I may one day wing, but right now I want to get down in size and swing weight from my 6'5" /115L, I tried the S26 95L and it was just a bit too small. I feel like the volume is right on this, along with the width, just wondering how it will SUP. Any reviews?

Yeah, I'm 170 lbs, on a 6'5" 115L Flying V, I think that shape is more oriented to winging. I'd like to just get my length down sub-6'.

Size and volume look right, has anyone SUP foiled it?

Anyone that has switched from the 1.0 to 1.5 pedestal, did you stick with the tuttle/plate adapter or just go straight for the plate mount built-in. I'm guessing the 1.5 is stiffer, lighter, etc.?

I was told by Karla that the 1.5 mast and 1.0 are the same weight for the 29.5 and believe it is the same stiffness too.  I imagine the built in plate mount  does save some screw weight.

So is there any reason to upgrade?

Appst.
I would just chop the Maliko tail for now and keep trying the 14 flip.  The chopped tail provides enough lift to help pop up out of the water and is not too big to still have fun and haul ass.

I think the 18 flat would be better for winging and would not mess with it now..
Focus on getting up on the new HA wings then move to the flat tails.

The first couple of times I rode my 14 flip in the surf I also felt like nothing was there. I quickly moved back to the chopped maliko. It was when I first winged on the 14 flip where I figured it out. It is so fast and it + the GL120 require just more forward board speed and dont/wont jump out of the water like the M200..

You can delay the inevitable with the Malkio Chopped, but the 14 flip is the tail for surf with GF for now.

Yeah, I mean......with the Maliko tail, I can get the GL210 going in basically nothing, I'm talking ankle to knee non-breaking shite, more efficient than the Maliko, almost the same lift. Put the 14 flip tip on and it feels like it's just pulling me backward when I'm pumping to start and I end up with way too much weight on the tail end. I know it's my technique, but.......even once going it's fidgety at best.

It's frustrating, has anyone worked with shimming the 14.5 flip for more lift?

Appst, I think the tail is right but I only have the short pedestal 14 flip.

One thing that I would recommend is to go back to whatever tail you are used to. The HA wing is so much different than the M200 that you will want some consistency. I would also say that the GL210 has less lift than the M200 and that you might benefit from a fat ass Maliko blue tail.

I have been running my GL210 with my Maliko Blue Chopped tail only.

I bought the 14 flip / Short pedestal and felt like I did not have anything to stomp against when trying to get to wing. Its like my back foot pushed down into the water more and I was not able to engage the foil. I know that as I progress the 14 flip will be awesome but I am just sharing my experience with the GL210.

-red

This....is exactly what is happening to me. I swapped the tail mid-session this AM and absolutely hated the flip tail (I went back to the giant Maliko tail). So.....the question becomes.......chop the Maliko tail or 18" flat or what? It's like the back end is just sticking to the water and I'm not getting up or if I do it's a hell of a lot more effort than with the Maliko tail.

I'd just stick with the Maliko tail, but I'm about to sell that setup to a friend. Any thoughts?

I'm not in Hawaii and may be willing to buy the Maliko 280, or trade a Maliko 200 for.
