I've gotten the GL140 into the upper 20mph range.  Haven't ridden the Lift 120HA yet, hoping for 30's.

I'm 180lbs, not too hard to ride this board, as long as powered up.  Once flying it's epic!

Yea, I find it hard to get a good variety of pics of new products at times, same with this product, so I go out of my way to get some good ones at all angles for anyone in the same position.

I came off a 6'5 Flying V for winging that I started SUP foiling on when they first came out.  I will add more review info once I get more time on it.  I've only had 3 sessions so far.

I see you use the flat tail. Do you like that better than the flip tail?

Been a fan of JL boards, light strong functional.

Curious what your 75L board weighs?

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

supfoo, haven't tried the fliptip, I was told the flat was faster?  Might cut it down though as something to try for more speed and maybe some fillet work between the rear wing and pedestal to stop it occasionally stalling.

Hi Clay!  Long time no see buddy!  I gotta come winging with you guys sometime!

I did not weight it, but it's so light it's essentially zero weight to me.  I can't tell it's there under me unless I look  ;D

I keep the foil on it at all times, but I'll weight it with the Lift setup next time I get it down to play to get an idea.  I'm thinking somewhere around 8-10lbs for the board only???
