DW - Iím dying to know - what do you mean by ďmicro chineĒ?
Is this a really low angle chine so the bottom isnít completely flat?  Seems like thatís what Iím seeing in the latest video of your boards

that tip on "scootching" forward at the critical moment lit a light bulb for me.  Almost makes me want to go out and try again, but then I remember how many times I tried flatwater starts without even a hint of lift engaging.

super impressive!  I literally can't believe how easy it seems watching Jeremy get out of the water in two paddle strokes.  It is so so so not easy.

Yet another mystery gofoil wing and tail combination that can't be found for sale and has no information or specifications anywhere.  Seriously, do they even want to sell this stuff?  I guess its more like a club that makes gear for Alex's buddies.

Good ideas, thanks, will look at those shapes closer.

playing with some shapes and I think this might be my next board

I bet it rides a lot like the Lift 170HA - similar area though it is higher aspect ratio and an extra two inches wingspan.  I'm eager to hear a comparison from someone who has ridden the lift HA series.

armstrong rocker looks nice to the eye, but I see what you mean about zero rocker on the tail.  It looks like the foil will be mounted on upward sloping tail and all the rocker will be slow to plane.

I've been playing with a lot of straight tail shapes in the computer, but I don't like the look of the rocker line that results yet.  @califoilia any way you could share the rocker line you arrived at?

Laird's riding is nowhere near as impressive or aesthetic as the top riders I see these days (to my eye), but the wave looks absolutely amazing.  His board looks a lot like the boards we were riding 3 years ago, I'm surprised to see that.  Thanks for sharing the video, cool to see.

Foil SUP / Re: First kit!

I'm very curious to hear if the flat tail concept translates to increased glide in a sup foil board.  logically it makes sense that we just added back a bunch of running length in comparison to the bevelled tail designs.  But does it work in practice.  I think I saw a quick post by Dwight saying it works for SUP, but no details.

Foil SUP / Re: Starting with SUPfoiling or prone?

Such an interesting topic and lots of good advice here already

Don't expect to learn this fast.  Don't forget how much time it took you to learn kiting - all that time flying a kite on the shore and bodydragging and walk-of-shaming.  It'll be like that again.  Make a commitment to yourself that you'll go out into the waves 12 times before giving up.  You WILL have several very frustrating multi-hour long sessions with nothing but failures.  You need to push through this knowing that it will come with time.  I didn't follow anyone's advise to learn behind a boat, take a lesson, etc.  It took me 10 sessions before I foiled at all.  It took me 30 sessions before I felt like I had any sort of control.    From there you will progress really fast and the progression will never end (after 4 years and many hundreds of sessions I'm still learning every day).  You don't need a lesson if you are willing to push through frustration.

thats the M280 - huh?  foils at walking speed, but so much drag its hard to keep it up there I guess.  Super impressive that you've got the (nearly) flat water start!

mine is 5'8" x 30" x 117L
It rides great for foilSUP, but it doesn't have the kind of tail that is all the rage right now for winging
You could scale length width thickness and end up with your desired dimensions if you like the shape

Looks like an exact copy of gofoil IWA and Maliko tail .  The Fuse connection is different, so it isn't exact but the wings themselves look very much the same.  Would be good if we could confirm that it is or isn't the case.

looks like you're doing fine!  A tip that will help you - really work on riding as high on the mast as possible.  Just before you breach.  Drag goes way down and pumping gets so much easier.  Its like a revelation once you get that feel.
