Got a call from Alex this morning, said to stop by the shop. He had a prototype wanted me to try and break. Lighter construction of an Iwa and also a Kai. The wings are lighter by a full pound. Unreal how light this thing is.

Also got a sneak peak at a full array of new wings. New tail configurations as well. Total mind blower type shyte. I get to test a couple of those this weekend once the weather breaks. dancing

Not sure if I can post any pics of the new wings, but I'll give you some feedback once I do.

If you already have Go Foil gear, hold onto it. The new wings should be compatable. jam_on

That would be sick. Id love a thinner Lift style wing in Iwa sizing.

Never rode my GL wing on a SUP, nursing a sprained toe so I gave it a shot yesterday.

The speed with a big (8'4") SUP attached to it was crazy. I've ridden my SUp foilboard with the 200 which was slow and very lifty. Once you got on foil and the board released from the surface, the thing got moving very quickly.

Now that you've had plenty of time on both. Would you recommend the Iwa or the GL? Provided the prices were similar. Reasons why?

I'd get the GL, more versatile IMO. It can surf, downwind, SUP, pump out. Can't really downwind on the Iwa and it doesnt' pump out as good. I can still do 2 and 3 for 1's on the Iwa with more work than the GL.

If just getting a surfing wing, the Iwa would be your best bet.

Also, I'm not a wind sport guy but once those wing thinngs hit the market I may get one.

Does the GL flare up like the Iwa when you turn it?

I’m at a minor impasse with mine, I think I’m just a little light for it having lost some weight. Makes it hard to control through turns. So the small GL looks good to me..looks like they don’t crash and burn if you push the tip out.
