Just got the ultrashort fuselage, it works really good with the 900, you can turn tighter, really loose but still good control.

Which fuse were you using before? Stab? This on the 900?

Short fuselage (which works good) and 400 stab.

I just got the 1000 front wing.

I love it for dw, super fast and easy to control.

I tried yesterday on waves, it felt pretty good, doesn't turn as good as the 900 but still really nice for carving and it has more glide, I guess for bigger guy it might be perfect.

Haha thanks, I can't wait to foil Sano again but I don't know when, this is definetly my favorite place in the world.
But I can't complain, I'm having a good time, I just have to deal with the cold weather 8)

Greg
Are you running the 900 on your SUP or the 1000?  Would you recommend the 900 for a 75kg intermediate foil supr looking to move on from the GF IWA?

Greg- Is the board in the video a Brawner or made in France?

I use mostly the 900 on sup wave and 1000 for dw. I think the 900 has the same lift as the IWA but it is faster and easier on steep take off. I guess it depends on your board and the wave you foil. For bigger board and small mushy wave I would recommend the 1000. If you use a small light board and  you are experienced the 900 might be what you want. Both of those are really good especially with the ultrashort fus and 400 wing.

This board was made in France. But Brawner will do the same as I'm in charge of the design even being in France.

Thanks for the reply Greg. How thick is that board? Looks like a nice, compact and buoyant shape.

Thanks Greg, you know the wave I foil at pretty well, your old home Sano.  I have seen a few proners on the 900 and they do pretty well, just didnt know if that was too small for a SUP.  My board is not big but not small, 6'6.  Just looking for a setup that has more adaptability, glide and take advantage of the newer designs.

Yes it is super compact, 5'5 x 26 x 4.9 - 100L, but it has a concave deck, so the rail are thicker (6'').
This board is super stable, my next one will be narower (x25), I thick the deep double concave gives more stability and tracking while paddling.
