I have an ultrashort red fuse that I would consider selling.  But was hoping to sell it with a 900 front wing.  Any interest in both?

Easily, at a fraction of the weight. My next wing board will have no pad.

will you use all cork ?

thanks guys for the feedback.  I bought a can to try to do a lazy man fix for sprinkler and thought that it may work for an alternative to a traction pad.  Hopefully it will have fixed my sprinkler issue.

Califoilia: thanks.  yea i lucked into a few fun ones yesterday.  Amazing dropping some volume really increased the overall performance and control.  Not a new revelation but great to actually feel it.

TD;  do you think that spray may be too abrasive for the hands to be pushing off of or grip?

PB: i like the cork look and feel but wanted something that i could put on the rails too.  Guess i can always just put some wax there too like my surfboards.

Has anyone tried using this for a bit more traction or grip.  I just got a new board and instead of extending/adding more traction pads, i thought about just spraying this from the end of the traction pad to the rails.  Wanted a bit more grip when i push off the board and also for duck diving.  Supposedly it dries to a rubber like feel.

So on my gen 1 Go Foil and probably Gen 1 JL Sup i did end up shimming the tuttle with some foil tape.  Just on the side and it was snug and no more clunking sound.

thanks, i will go back and continue to sock away my pennies for this

it should be available soon ...

Hey Winged where did you get that screen shot?  Just curious of what the text says and if there are any specs or dimensions.  thanks.

Has this been released?

In case you were wondering if the foil under you would protect you from the landlord.

Thought that i would share a couple of new recent toys.

Pertinent to this thread.  I upgraded or downsized from the 5'6 NSP board above to a 4'8 Kings below.  I had around 15 or so sessions on the 5'6 then found the Kings at Dave's shop.  Amazingly dropping length was not as bad as I thought.  Volume was about the same (45l), i am realizing that it is way too much liters for me at 165lb.  Oh well, i dont mind the extra float, maybe next year i will get a custom or find a lighter board.  Length wise i think i will stick to this.

Still a kook on both of these.  I can definitely see the potential of riding small boards.  Had some glides/pumps on the prone that felt very effortless plus didnt have to manage the swing weight of a larger board.

Get there early as it is more crowded so lot fills up sooner.  water is cooler than normal and wear a mask :)

ok here you go. 5'6 x 22 45l. 

Not quite a closet prone foiler just a relative new one.  I learned on a SUP a year ago and got the itch to try prone.  I surfed most of my life and got into SUP for the foiling side of it.  I am around 14 or so sessions in on the prone.  Able to ride them in almost to beach, but not always able to nail my feet position.  On the ones where I get my feet right, it feels really good with such a small board. 

I just sold my sup and placed an order for a new one, so i only have this for now.  We shall see what my progress is when my new sup arrives.
