Pretty cool video. I wonder what's availability date? 2021  ???

Yes. 130 lbs person will learn on 1600-2000 cm/2 foils. Assuming the wind isn’t too light. 12-14 knots minimum.

Toejammer, what’s the wing span on 6m swing compared to 5m? Thanks.

He pulled it down, I have the screen recording but can't upload mov files due to ridiculous size limits.

New wing from GoFoil - NL190 - looks like a HA takuma LOL - supposedly faster then gl's.

Front strap on my sup foil Board has been there from day 1. I tried without it and there is no engagement with the board on the wave. Snapping turns also requires the front strap. Back strap I am not really fond of, seems to be counter intuitive for pumping. In my case, I HATE jimmy lewis flying v deck pad - cheap slippery garbage but I do love the board and the way it catches waves and flies. So strap is my slippery deck mitigation.

The only paddles that I ever broke happened to be QB  ;D. Fixing them can be expensive/not making much sense. I have one VDrive 91 cut at 74-75 that I might sell if you're interested.

Thank you Solent Foiler for this  great video!

I am SW FL and so far happy with my JL Flying V 6.5, plenty stable in crazy wind chop that I deal with in the gulf.

Excellent post, flkiter. Thanks a lot!

Since you asked this type of question I would recommend you to try and demo as much as you can. Ask forum members that are close to you to demo. Don't rush and buy stuff based on your research. I live in Naples so here is what I think - I definitely prefer 14 if your goal is tracking, speed and stability. Durability wise - I had good luck with starboard, SIC, Infinity, JP. You need to decide if paddling flat water is going to be your only thing or you would like to be able to catch a few waves here and there - it will dictate the design. There are so many options/variables here that it will take a novel to explain all intricacies. I PERSONALLY like/prefer downwind or allwater type boards for almost everything. They paddle nicely on flats and chop and super fun on wind swell that we get on the gulf in the winter. My all time favorite is the classic sic bullet - all around winner in my book. You can pm me if you want to demo my boards, once this craziness is over.

Can you tell me what size carbon tubes you ordered from Amazon? I was thinking 6mm but wanted to ask and see if you could share? Thank you

I ordered this
I would go with 6mm though since 5 were a little too tight.
