I tried the 1150 only flat water and catching boat wake. Super easy maybe the easiest foil this size to get up ?? Amazing glide on tiny boat wake so I guess it might be good for super light dw.
Two firends of mine have it (SUPER, they are heavier than me) and now they can connect multiples waves which they couldn't do even with the 1020.

Thatís impressive Greg! I wish I had half of your skills. At the same time I wonder if gofoils gl240 is any similar to axis 1150. Look close to me.

Similar width, but for some reason, a lot draggier.

Where does a guy go in Hawaii to get axis -1 shims 3D printed for cheap?

Yes, I'm looking for a half dozen -1 shims. If anyone has a 3D printer and wants to make and mail me some, please send me a message.

I'm still fascinated with the 1150. great wing. And if you want shims, consider some thin washers. I have two 3D printers and I've never bothered with printing fancy-schmancy shims. Just get a selection of thin washers. You can get nylon ones and even sand them thinner if you need to. The 1150 does like a bit of shimming for the stabilizer. I went too far with the 390 and could hardly get it off the water. One degree at most. For the 440 I use two degrees of shim, but it's still not as fast as the 390 is.

I got an 1150 and am running it on the 83/19m mast and ultra short fuse with 390stab. I am kind of loosing my chit over this setup. This thing was weird for the first session but then it started behaving. I can flag out and pump as far as I feel like. It connects bumps and glides like magic. I really want to try its little brothers out. Not sure if I should get the 1010 or 9010. It is crazy how much more it performs when its 3 inches under the surface rather than deep. Pono, which way are you shimming the 390 up or down?

down, putting the shim over the front screw. Decreasing the incidence angle to about 2.5 degrees. If you do that you'll have to move your feet back a bit and get used to both less front foot pressure and less lift at low speed.

Yes, I have noticed this, too, though I think this is a general property of all front wing (but maybe more so flat/HA wings?).

What does shimming the (front screw) stabilizer up to 1 degree do for pumping efficiency, speed and lift. I guess this shimming to decrease stabilizer AOA decreases lift but decreases drag, so should increase speed and glide. What about pumping efficiency? Thanks

Less drag + more speed = pump father
