Looks like Go Foil is introducing a new P series.
The P180 is a better wing for pumping.
I wonder when Alex will share more info & when go foil will make this available.

Wings: DuotoneV1 3m,4m,5m
Board: Blue Planet Sup 6’6” 117 liters
Foils: Go Foil Kia, Iwa, M200, GL140
Paddle:Wener Rip Stick

Looks really nice. The GL180 was already the highest aspect ratio in their lineup, this looks definitely higher (and thinner). Looks like much of the attachment bulge is on the bottom, maybe this places the wing a little higher relative to the fuse.

Interesting that this shows up in Japan first.

looks like a lower aspect ratio GL240, but also much thinner foil profile.  Kind of like the 180 is a lower aspect version of the 210 (same span)

How about a five minute ride in the surf.

higher aspect? from the pictures I have seen its the same chord as a gl180 but substantially more span

another picture from insta seems to suggest it is even less chord than the GL180.  This is one seriously high aspect wing!

Just when I was getting foil envy over the GL180 now I can skip it and get foil envy over the P180.

Ha! 

And I own the GL210 and GL140. 

The good news is that the GL210 has covered me from 3 foot waves to 15 foot waves. 

The GL140 has worked in 4 foot waves (on a small 6 foot SUP) up to 18 foot waves with no Upper limit. 

So where does the P180 fit? ? 3 to 5 feet clean and Pumpable conditions.

More information Please!!!!!!

In the video by James Casey on his new Aviator board he said he currently downwinds the P180 and surfs the NL.  On a different note, I called Maui to order a new tail on Friday and they mentioned they had the P180 in the shop so seems like they are already out... no NL yet though.
