I got my new GL240 and new tail yesterday. Pretty. Now I need to learn how to get it up. I was using my footstrap but tried to keep my foot at the back of the strap. I was wingfoiling and I got it up to speeds that would have my M200 or M280 bouncing at the overfoil limit. No go. I'm sure it's my foot position. Tomorrow the straps come off and we go.

Yeah, the new wings are expensive. Wing and stabilizer were well over $1K. I don't remember the exact amount, but it seemed like a lot 'o bucks.

$$$is totally irrelevant fo me....its worth it ...every penny....life is short...buy the dam toy...haha..besides...that stinkin GL210 is sooooooooo GOOD...it makes you feel like youre 16 all over again...AGAIN!...im nearly 50 ...to feel like youre 16 and have that much FUN again...sheeeeoot...you know how you sometimes daydream and think..."i wish i could go back and be a kid again knowing what i know now"...well...this is IT!...

wanna know what will really BLOW YOUR MIND!...put that sumbeach on your tiny prone board...i put it on my 5'2"  and did a 6 for 1 yesterday in non-breaking swells...1 footers NOT winded...just barely breathing heavy...barely...i couldn't believe it...i quit pumping back outonly because i got bored...for a 240# fatass that is unheard of even on a SUP with a paddle...and normally after a 4 for 1 my lungs are ready to  go POP!..and passs out...with the GL210 you can fly for....ev...errrrrre...kikass ;)

This is at least a $1000/year hobby AFTER spending $2000+ to join the club.  I saw the 4.0 message shortly after I put my credit card down for the GL210.  At least steamroller is keeping me excited about it!

Steamroller. If I ever break down and buy the new high aspect nonsense you gotta do downwinder's with me. That's an aspect I really want to learn. Countyline to Zuma. Prius shuttles back and forth :)

If we do it at low tide we can probably do prone take off's out at the County Bombora on our prone boards. Not sure I can stay on foil for longer than 2 minutes as that is double my current longest ride but we'll see.

You just sold a few more wings. 

Myself included.  And I’ve been loving the M200 Kai tail combination on zero foot waves in the east coast.

I cant wait!  Just vaccum bagged the carbon last evening.  I hope all my guesswork proves adequate. My last higher aspect wing made 3 of my older wings obsolete.  this one will be for the larger waves but if its real good, it may become the one wing to rule them all.

I was thinking the GL wings were way too much money this morning but everytime I read this post I change my mind. Are they really that good Steamroller? I could do with feeling 16 again! The combo of your posts and the videos of Derek Hamasaki on the GL180 are too much :)

I think in the space of a week, we'll see a whole bunch of first-ride reports (myself included).  I will certainly get on mine within a day of it arriving and will post here for the benefit of those still on the fence.

Beasho!     Those pics are making me yearn for southern realms, even if they are only 1 footers.

People don't get it and I don't think they ARE going to get it.  It = The ability to Foil in small and terrible conditions and still have a blast.

The following was a typical forecast for this summer on the East Coast.  1 - 2 Feet and BAD!

The whole summer was pretty much like this.  One day I decided to give it a try.  I called my East Coast foil amigo and said "Paul I am going to drive up there and see what's going on." 

Sure enough there were waves and I was foiling all over BY MYSELF.   In the heart of New England and I AM SURFING (FOILING) 100% ALONE.
