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.

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.

Sano, I dream about it everynight :)
I would say go with the 1000 but with ultrashort fus and 400 rear wing, you will have the speed, the glide and it will turn really good.
You won't be diseapointed ;)

Just got the 101 HA front wing & 460 flat stab.

For me it is more a dw foil but I tried on small wave to see how it was.

Easy gradual lift (like most HA wing), amazing glide, easy to pump back out as it stays up longer and hold it at low speed.
Turns ok, I mean you need some space and slow wave but you can do pretty good turns.
At 70 kg I don't need it for surfing (except if I want to connect x10 waves) but for bigger guys especially on a sup it might be a good choice.

Excellent FF!  How would you say it compares with the 1000 and 900 just in terms of push needed to get airborn?

Overall, I suppose.  How would you describe the amount lift / ease of takeoff compared to the 900 and 1000?

I had a 101 wing in my hot little hands for three days but didn't have any wind to try it. I borrowed it from Junya, and when I gave it back to him yesterday at Ka'a he took it out surfing and rode some small bumps all the way to the beach. I kicked myself for not trying it in the surf. I was tempted to go out, but my piece o' shit twenty-year-old Xterra blew a brake line and I needed to work on fixing it. I got to drive from Kapalua, where Diane and our friend Twila were having a little golf staycation, back to Kahalui with just rear brakes. Thank heavens for dual circuit brakes. This is the second time it's lost a brake line, the first time was the rear brakes, this time the front brakes, but both times in the same area--an obvious design flaw. 

Anyway, I didn't get to ride the 101, but I want one. From everything I see and hear it should be great for downwind. Junya was having no trouble connecting the dots, and he's only about 20 pounds lighter than me, though he's infinitely more skilled.
Foote 10'4X34", SIC 17.5 V1 hollow and an EPS one in Hood River. Foote 9'0" x 31", L41 8'8", 18' Speedboard, etc. etc.

I would like to know how easy it is to get the S1010 flying compared to the S1020 , for downwind and for very small waves...

For surfing it has a nice gradual lift but I thnik with the flat stab being quite "big" you can feel some extra lift compared to 900 and 1000. Maybe I should try it with a smaller stab for surfing.

I haven't used it dw yet but I should do it soon, I will you know.

I did an ocean down winder with the 1010 front and 440 rear today. 5m Swing.



My top speed, just gliding along was 14.3 mph. I did not do any powered hooked in reaches to get a real top speed.

The wind shutoff like a switch, three quarters of the way into the run. So glad Im passing on the whole sinker board trend. I would have been screwed.

Anyway, back to first impressions. Skittish under the front foot. Solid and relaxed rear foot with the 440 tail. Glad I passed on the flat tail 460. The flat wing 460 likely makes both feet skittish. The skittish goes away once the body adjusts, or maybe forgets about it.

So not for newbies. The 1020 is still king for ease of use. The 1000 is also more normal feeling. The 1010 definitely has the flat wing feel and that gets you easy glides and easier pumping.

Nice addition, but not replacing any of my other wings. Anyway, thats the quick first impression.

Just added the wind chart to my post above. Direction was 25 degrees side off shore.

13-22 mph when we started. 8-10 mph when I limped home.
