What mast lengths?  How are you liking those Axis vs GoFoil?

Gofoil 29,5 + 2 inch= 31,5 inch = 80 cm

Axis 60 cm=24 inch, 75 cm=30 inch and 90 cm =36 inch

I haven't used the Axis foils yet but being able to use a short mast for shallow sandbanks is very useful..

I really like the complete modularity of the Axis program.  I just ordered a bunch of Red goodies.  :)

Here is another vid of the waterstart.  Helpful, but again editing out the part where they are actually getting on the board.  Wonder why :).  This looks very doable though and flying around on a 4'8 board looks epic.

Yesterday my 62 kg daughter managed to get going on her Axis 5'0 41 liter. She can't push the board down enough to stand on it under water but she did a kneeling start in very choppy conditions.
She could only do it  port tack, she is regular.

She thinks she needs a much smaller board to do a proper waterstart...

Kids! :)

Did you sit on it yet?  Have yo put a straight edge on the bottom?  I am wondering how flat it is in the tail and how far forward it stays flat.


I am nowhere near ready to be working on this yet...so that means it is time to start :)

PS:  Just searching around I found this product.  It is a pad with various insert options.  This may be a good choice for you and save some headaches.
