the thing is almost every other brand is using a stab wing tip with either flat or bend wing and the more stab options the better I think  :)

Day 3 on GL180 and Day 1 on Narrow Pedestal Tail--incredible!  Very neutral lift until you pump up onto foil.  So easy to pump and at least 50%-80% faster and much longer glides than than M200. 

Any one else's tail hum like a banshee? 

Think I am going to have to take some sandpaper to the trailing edge as Alex indicates in this video...

How does the GL180 carve compared to the IWA

I had such a nice evening tonight on the faired GL210+narrow tail.  Got 20 good waves in an hour and that's not including the half a dozen early wipeouts or missed takeoffs.   If we could bottle up this feeling and distribute it, I swear it would be the end of all kinds of mental health issues.

it can also cure retardation as I'm feeling it  ;D

I'm still thinking on either narrow or wide tail?

@Fatfish: Need to have a few more sessions or have someone else comment...it does feel a bit different turning than the IWA which is a great carving wing.  Have been having too much fun riding bumps that were barely there and pumping to make sections I couldn't make before that I haven't done much cutbacks yet.  Interestingly this one is 1" smaller chord and same width as the 210. 

@Jondrums: Agree!  OMG... the first good day I had on it, I had so much adrenaline I couldn't sleep that night!  I traded boards with someone I know in the surf yesterday (who is riding the M200) and it looks like he is buying the GL...

Do the GL wings need to be custom fit to your existing fuselage?  I donít know a lot about the Gofoil product line but when I was shopping around, I was told if you didnít buy a set, buying a wing later might require fitment.

no, they'll fit your existin fuselage.  Newest wings and tails are "universal" and fit any gofoil mast/fuse .  The screw hole is slotted so you put them on tightly and then screw it down.

Gofoil if you're reading at this, we need you to bring out shorter fuselage and more tail wing options for mid 2020 season  ;)

Lol... I suspect it will be in the works but that would mean replacing our masts... :(

some photos I posted earlier in the thread show the elongated fastener holes in both the wing and tail.

it is in the works ....and no we wont have to replace the whole mast fuselage setup...they have new pedestals with multiple mounting holes for the tail wing effectively  making the distance between front and tail wings shorter...the problem is the pedestals and tail wings are all made by hand on maui not popped out of a mold in china so production is slower...

i would like to hear some other big guys feedback too on the 18n vs 18w wing
