GoFoil RS Series?
« on: September 23, 2021, 07:29:30 AM »
I've seen some post about 2 GoFoil RS wings 1000 and 1150 (see pic). Anyone has more details? Specs, Availability experience on the water?

If you go through James' stories or IGTV's you'll see it in use.

I think you got some shots of it in the Jeremy Riggs/Tomo flat water paddle up video's too.

I wonder if gofoil has finally adopted numbering system based on area in cm2.

Iíve pretty much given up on gofoil - basically seems unobtainable, zero information available anywhere.  Good for Alex running a lifestyle business, but I think Iíll support the companies which are willing to actually market and sell their gear rather than a fraternity for his Maui bros.

That's yet another unknown series ::) referred to as GT. 2200 in that case.

GT series replaces NLs. Better turning, better low end compared to NLs. Winglets are gone too. I hear that lack of info sucks but the foils are amazing imho. Well at least they work insanely in my spot.
Addicted to foiling at the moment.

Agree with the frustration on lack of information.  Looks like GF moved to EZ, GT, and RS lines.

Apparently if you are in Michigan you can demo the 3 new Gofoil lines...

Thanks, Hdip.  I am signed up but haven't had the time to listen to his podcasts at the cadence James is putting them out...

Here is more... GT160 and RS1150 with Jeremy Riggs and Dave Kalama

That RS reminds me of the Axis HPS. Similar looking template, with tips twisted. Interesting the way GoFoil made the tip twist obvious with a step. Axis blended the twist.
