Great work jamallstar and the wing cord and span look bigger on it self but once on the fuselage it looks well balance, soo good to see your work well done. I have a go foil maliko tail and how would you modify it to make it faster and stable?

Cheers jeg, Its 1180mm x 200 x maybe 30mm, not the smallest wing but pretty high aspect.
I have a maliko tail for this foil, chopped about 70mm off each tip. I havent really tried it surfing since the chop but downwinding it is faster and  alot looser to turn but also lost alot of pumping power. I would just buy a new tail wing if it were me

This is my second  session on the gull, still cant quite figure out the pumping cadence  it feels alot different to anything ive tried so far. Seems to really like short sharp pumps

Cool project Jamallstar! Although I reckon it will go better with the Steinlarger classic than the Macs gold....!

Do you mind posting a bit on how you made the actual board (ie the choped surfboard)? I'm particularly interested in how you got strength and water seal in the connection to the foil base plate and how you sealed the cut section...
Thanks in anticipation, and apologies if I have missed the description elsewhere.

Cheers HB
