Great! And after using the gofoil he uses the Ke Nalu.
The board has little rocker, could it be also a windfoil too?

Pretty cool. That's the same thing I did to my L41--tracks and Tuttle. There's no reason to not do this for board makers; I might go the other way and put fins on my JL Hovercraft. Having a board that does it all is very interesting, especially for travelers, I'd say a foil/surf board is pretty much that board except for flatwater. It would be a better choice for marginal downwind than a dedicated foil board.

Sunova's are 3 in ONE because you can windfoil as well Which I guess can be just windsurf it too
So it can
Surf
Surf SUP
Surf SUP Foil
Surf Foil
Windsurf
and WindFoiling

So it could be 6 in 1 WOW

I checked, sunova 2in1 are 2in1, there’s no mast insert. I’m sure Sunova can add it if asked with a big smile (and lots of $?).
Maybe they’ll have another foilboard with a mast insert...

Mine is not a Sunova but I have a multi purpose surf/sup/foil that is proving to be pretty darn useful.  Mine is an 8'x27x4 with a tuttle and Go foil Maliko, but I also have a 4+1 fin set and can (barely) stand up surf it without the foil.  I am 6'2 220lbs though and if I can lose 20 lbs it will be way more manageable.  Could be a fun standard surf sup without foil in cleaner conditions.  With the foil it is super capable in junky Great Lakes waves.  I am eager to try it on a downwind run as well.  And on a big blown out day last year I prone surfed it without foil and, although wide and floaty, it was real fun especially because conditions here are often a make the best of it scenario.  My friend who built it is also putting mast inserts in some of the newer ones as we have a windsurf buddy who has already converted his to be a wind foil too.

I can fit the whole rig in the inside of my 4 door Jeep, which is great because I haven't outfitted it with a rack yet and i normally bring a few boards with me when I go out.  So for now this rig has really been fun!
