Starting to get my dealer pricing on the new wings and I'm not seeing any decrease in prices, more of an increase if anything. Plus I'm sure they'll use the virus as an excuse to raise prices

Then retail shop need really think about their competitive prices to those want to stay in the game  ;)

Looks like lots of brand wings and sizes are coming out and hopefully be competitive to gong prices.

Foil SUP / Re: GoFoil GL140

OK!  GL140 Works.

Conditions:  Buoys started out 10 ft @ 17 seconds then went 12 @ 14 Seconds.  BOOMING!

However Mavericks was NOT breaking so I figured it would be good at Mushroom.  It was breaking all over place outside of Mushroom Rock aka BIG just not Mavericks big.

I hug the rock and took off on my first wave ~ 10 foot face.  I went so fast I freaked out and jump off the board.  I thought the wing was going to breach BUT IT DIDN'T.  It was all in my head.

A few more rides, some 300 yarders, and I am convinced this will will carry even at 190 lbs. 

Here were a couple of waves but at the end of the session I was a bit wobbly. 



sounds like a fast front wing and controlling the speed is a learning curve. Would be interesting to see your feedback on the not so beastly waves, like 2-3ft size.

also, the factor of danger will increase when more foilers around you and even worse when their inexperience at close proximity and one mistake can lead to  :o ::) :-X

Upon further inspection the simplicity of this device is appealing.

Um, Should we also be talking about the tail wings this guy is running? crazy shapes.. Makes me want to cut my other Blue tail wing down crazy like those.
-red

interesting what shape he did on that rear wing and it looks like a front wing facing backwards but really tiny version. Anymore info on this as I have a maliko tail and still looking for some ideas?

The other thing is to make sure you're home alone when the Fed-Ex guy shows up.

GL140 - Wingspan = 32"the exact same as the GoFoil IWA (RED for those out of the loop).

Chord at Center = 6.5"

Going to test right now.

Thanks for the pics Beasho.

The GL140 makes up more span at the wing tip and less at the centre. Technically I have no idea what these changes will do but judging from the vids it rips.

I'm continually impressed with these layback wing out turns, especially strapless:

Also super irritated with my inability to post an Instagram video link, what's the secret?

Ah, I figured it out, the tv in the link doesn't work, but the p or the original poster/post does work and embeds the video.

What just happen! ?

Guess you just can't rotate them w/o the straps...

Likely just a matter of time. Here's a kiter foiler doing strapless rotations.

yeah, I'm guessing its okay to use quick release on single sup surf fin but there's a lot of pressure/force on that foil mount area though we dont know until we try. Who's here the the test dummies  8)

I understand once your foiling time is up most of us put safety aside but from experience foiling is still dangerous. I've had times were what if I landed there or here and I can tell you (example) sometimes 5 inches landed away is close call. Yes, we all mastered the eject button but you still make mistakes and hopefully on a good side of mistake and not on a bad side of mistake.

Interesting idea of the quick release dual track plate mount. Also, looks like they make an aftermarket gofoil pedestal and probably an option of short and long fuselage bolt mount.
