« on: January 02, 2020, 06:52:27 PM »
Headed down to Nosara Costa Rica next week for about 10 days (9th-19th) for a family thing. Any tips or spots I should definitely foil? Feel free to DM me directly. Im going to reach out to the Blue zone people as well. Anyone else going to be in that area at that time?


Foil SUP / Removing stuck go foil adapter
« on: October 27, 2019, 10:48:44 AM »
Just wanted to hear methodologies for removing go foil adapters. I got a new carbon one and want to switch out. Iíve seen the wood method

But checking to hear about anything else. I put the water based wd-40 on it, but itís been a few months so Iím expecting a fight.

Classifieds / Maliko 280 WING ONLY
« on: April 08, 2019, 08:38:56 PM »

Selling a never-used Maliko 280 wing and case. Literally has never touched water. (If the post is still up, its still available.)


Description from site:

ďThe largest wing in the collection! The larger surface area of the Maliko 280 makes it best suited for slower speeds which translates to added confidence and safety. It is the ideal choice for learning to foil using slow speeds and riders wanting to learn to downwind foil.Ē

Bought this back in November. Word on the street is that Go Foil has gotten a bit more modular and this SHOULD fit most recent masts and fuselages. You can also sand or add shims apparently. Obviously you are welcome to test the fit before purchase.

Doing advanced math on the go foil site leads me to believe that, brand new, this wing is worth $750. Iím knocking $150 off that and holding FIRM at $600. Again, never touched water.

Located in west La but Im also at San O, and Mondos a lot.


Foil SUP / L.A. Area foil board repair
« on: August 22, 2018, 02:28:29 PM »
Posted about this in a different thread but thought I would make it it's own topic. Blew the tracks out of the bottom of my board (L41 tv dinner with tuttle and tracks pre-installed) and want to make sure I take it to someone who will build it back just as strong. Any reccs for LA area?

Ripped out of the track and went to the bottom of the ocean. I assume itís another donation to king Neptune but just in case anyone comes across it. All black takuma type shape with L41 markings

Foil SUP / Big guys: What foils are you riding?
« on: August 08, 2018, 12:49:30 PM »
Im 6'5  270ish and have been on a Takuma type foil but think I need to go bigger. Curious about some of the new larger wings that are coming out. Anybody have experience with the Naish XL, the new big Slingshot or any others? Would go GoFoil but the inability to switch out wings for when it gets bigger (unless I buy everything at once) has me hesitant...

Foil SUP / Big Guy foil board size?
« on: September 26, 2017, 06:31:40 PM »
Hey everyone...

long time lurker here. definitely interested in getting a foil board. Currently riding a 10'6 by 32ish SUP atx for surf. Im wondering what boards bigger guys are riding when foiling. Im 6'5 270.  Ive been surfing for 20 + years and started supping a couple of months ago on a 12 ft board and already stepped down....

Im right thinking 9 or 9'6 in a simmonsy type shape and then putting a deep tuttle in.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!
