W.T.F.!  The hell with what the NL220 is capable of...I'm more impressed with what the big guy on top of the board is capable of!...

...gravity defying. :o :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.

When people talk about a wing "not turning" I have always been skeptical.

I have NEVER felt like I pushed my foil so hard that it would NOT respond.  More that the foil always had MORE turn in it.

What Steamroller is demonstrating is that when put on a "rail" the foil does not breach and fail.

Fantastic.  You can even see the tip come out!!!!   On the Surfline Camera no less.  I am starting to believe that the original Anhedral foils had the benefit of turning because they were curved to NOT breach.  These little winglets allow (maybe) for us to use high aspect FLAT foils which are WAY WAY more efficient and the winglet may prevent the cavitation along the top of the foil.

That 360 turn move should be called a "steamroller".

When I whine about a wing not turning, I donít mean literally. I mean it doesnít roll in and out of a turn so easy and smooth Iím one with the wing. I think it, it flows with me. Like a windsurf wave fin versus a slalom fin. Wave fins I love. Slalom is less fun.

Watch closely the videos. You can tell the type of front wing just by the way a surfer flows rail to rail and to some extent, the way their arms flail

Steamroller - You're rippin!  Awesome.

I agree with Denton and Dwight.  And I am adding that a stabilizer that is matched to the front wing can help a ton with turning or not turning.

First I saw of upturned wingtips were in the video of Robert Teriitehau he breached a tip quite a bit, if that's the secret sauce to riding tips out I want me some.

Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.

just rewatched that Teriitehau sup foil video - I hadn't noticed the wing tips before!  I also hadn't noticed that he performs a "steamroller" in that video as well.  I guess he did it first if that counts for the naming convention :D

Beasho, it is really hard to get a SUP foilboard on rail that hard without breaching the tips.  Just the shear width of the board means we need a really long mast to keep a GL210 or 180 wingtip in the water without burying a rail of the board.  So yeah, I feel limited in how hard I can push a turn, especially on a wave where the rail of the board is against the wave face in a bottom turn.  Same problem trying to ride high on a steep wave. 

~20" wide prone board has so much more margin to make turns with the foil deeper in the water.  I've set up for hard turns by making sure I'm deep enough in the water

I had a similar thought so will ask:

Steamroller - How long was your mast in that video?  And - Width of Board?

the wingtips are piercing the surface...every time...but the winglets spinn off amd awaythe tip vorticies keeping the wings efficient and the cutouts let you re-engage the foil and stop the ventilation from progressing all the way across the span once you submerge it again..

airplane winglets dont have cutouts but tbey fly in air...when they were testing Alex found that the trailing edge corner of the winglets in WATERand air had a lot of interference drag and they kept ventilating...and wouldn'tet it go...with the cutouts...thw water comes back together and the ventilating stops...

your guys feedback is GREAT...but i keep getting more and more stuff that needs to be discussed...feels like im never going to gwt this thing finished...haha
