Looks like Axis has a new line of Froth SUP foilboards coming:

Saw Evan with them earlier in the week, and I gotta say that the 5'9x28x110L has me very intrigued.

How they managed to squeeze 110L in such a small board is incredible, because while Evan wasn't sure of the exact thickness, it didn't look to be anymore more than maybe 4.5" thick...where with those dims, I'd expect it to be in more of the 90-something liter range, and certainly not the 110 listed.

Unfortunately I was cleared yet (got the go ahead on Thur...WooHoo!!), so I wasn't able to paddle one out, and Evan wasn't around ystdy, so I'm just gonna have to wait for another time to see if that's going to be my next board or not. But for all intents and purposes, I've already ordered one in my mind...now my mind just have to figure out a way to pay for it, and keep it out of sight of the wifey-poo.  ;D
Me: 6'1"/185...6'0" Kings Foil Board...6'0" Chelu Foil Board...9'6" Bob Pearson "Laird Noserider"...9'6" Costa Azul Wide Body...14' Lahui Kai "Manta"...8'0" WaveStorm for when proning urges still hit, and 7'3" Chuck Glynn foil board backup.

Blue Planet has a 5'8X27.5 @114L, so its not that crazy. The 5.3 thickness on the board is mostly just under the box, it thins down pretty quickly.

Been trying to find more details on these. Price was just raised on site so not quite as interesting.

seems narrow for a 110L board.  I'd rather have at least another inch of width for stability

Happy to see that these do have inserts.  It looks like they are set up for single stance only.  Cool looking boards!
