Dang Beasho, I hope you realize how lucky you are to have HMB as your foil spot.

On the verge of pre-ordering a GL210 wing. Which stabs are people using? The narrow or wide? Thanks in advance😀

I finally found something the GL doesn't do well! This morning, the break was littered with torn up little pieces of seaweed and seagrass from the last few days of swell.  Seems like the high aspect foil and thin tail can't handle this disturbance.  Lift was totally spoiled and drag through the roof. Basically unfoilable. IWA has previously been only slightly effected in similar conditions.  Interesting, but probably not relevant to most people/spots.

Interesting... you going to keep your IWA for those days then?  My buddy got his GL210 two days ago and was out today.  He used it with the Maliko tail since they are out of the new tails.  From my perspective his foiling looked a lot more active than it was before--more cutbacks and pumping.   He said it was fast and he had to get used to not pumping too much at the drop so it doesn't take off.

you guys are right about the seagrass and seaweed....the IWA can coast over it and and sometimes through if you have enough speed...also you can sometimes pump UP to angle the wing upwards with the IWA to get it through the weeds and freedom... with the GL210 ....one little patch that you didn't see and ...SPLAT!..over the handlebars every time...

Quick flight with the new tail.

More downforce than the RED KAI tail, but less than the Maliko Blue tail.  BUT Smooth as butter.

so awesome!  I've been out several days this week and I haven't see the water that calm all week - when was this?  So, does it pump as well as you hoped? - I share your goal to get  to where I can pump back out at similar power output as biking or running. Not there yet.

Calm! Funny you should say this. When we went out it was blustery and cold.  Nothing appealing about it.  We were joking because we took what were "Dentonian" conditions, which my surf-amigos refer to as

conditions so bad that only Denton would go out,

and made it appealing BY USING FOILS.  Jeff referred to the buoys as "Nothing at Nothing" seconds.  ::)

the video makes it look positively glassy compared the conditions I've been seeing.  The other day north coast santa cruz had big long period waves, except with chop the size of typical waves breaking inside the faces.  not exactly perfect foiling...  Still had fun!

I would like to know wingspans and surface area of the 3 new Gofoil GL wings.
Not easy to calculate surface but could someone  post wingspan?
