The downwind guys here are all over it fighting for the limited stock. So much more speed than the 1020 plus they are using it in the Surf on the Sups & prone. When you see them pump back out it like itís in slow motion. Have ridden myself but surfed beside my mate on one definitely a high performer. All available stock instantly sold out. It is quiet different to the Albatross. I grabbed a quick pic of one before it went out of the shop.

Signature & Axis both have a range of rear wings which changes a lot on these high aspect front wings , so very hard to compare the two . I have ridden the Signature Albatross 210 itís a weapon definitely an advanced foil with incredible performance , if anything the Axis is probably is not so over reactive and a bit tamer. Iím currently running the Signature Sprint rear wing on my NP and loving it , Ivan has some beautiful rear wings under constant R&D.

I have not had a chance to downwind my 900 yet but I have surfed is in waves ranging from 1ft to 4ft.  The wing is really fast and stable,  it pumps better than the 92cm Axis wing aswell.

I am looking forward to getting out in some wind and swell

My firend Eric Terrien tried it on dw, he was amazed by the glide, the speed and the flow of this wing. He said this has nothing to do with the other wing, way better.

He hasn't tried on wave yet. I will let you know when I have more informations.

I should be able to get a demo Axis 900 soon.

Evan from Axis will be in Sano june 2nd with demo foils so come join us for a fun day.

Actually, it will be my last weekend in California before I move back to France so I hope to see all my friends foilers out there.
