I’ve been cutting up my Gofoil wings in the quest for MOAR turning, speed etc.

Iwa is big for me but is good to pump so I wanted to improve its turning... I always feel like I’m standing on a fit ball when I try to crank a turn. I’ve been making good progress on that front but I think the wing needs tweaking....so here it is.

About 2” cut off each tip and winglets installed all bagged in 6oz carbon twill. Top of wing has been spray glossed too.

Wing was faster, and turns harder and tighter. Also rolled over a bit easier. I really liked the feels of cranking a backhand bottom turn on this thing. Superb. Feels like a win.

Sorry for the link but it’s a whole album.

Next on the slab.....

Kai wing is stupid small for me, so I cut it and I’m going to add extensions to make it Iwa span but thinner, higher aspect and with a different anhedral setup. Prob winglets too. Should be very fast I think.

Looks awesome! Very glad to hear it works!

Naish wings are starting to show up locally on craigs here, I was gonna sell my setup but this thread makes me wanna keep it and tinker.

Did you make the wing tips yourself?

Thanks Sozzle! I had some issues with Photobucket + got lazy.

Hey Grendel, the tips were glass on bonzer runners from when I made a 6 runner setup a while back.

The extensions on the Kaiwa are 8lb pour foam...I’ll redo them though as I thought up a new way to make slab foam more consistent

they don't do wings sizes in 1/6th inch size increments so that counts havoc out of it. roflmao

Pretty good result for a small(ish) effort, can’t wait for the kaiwa setup, will you redo the leading edge profile too?

I can’t really change the leading edge the way I’ll have to do this one...but it is a slightly refined foil compared with Iwa. I’ll make one further down the road though

Havoc, I have an extra foil. Between Grendel and me, we can get you set up. Come down and let's go.

This mod along with a severely clipped stab has been going really well.

Much nicer to turn and instead of pumping to catch up to bumps ahead I can just trim it out and catch up as it has a higher top speed. Mostly.

Relates to the wave much more predictably and feels less draggy. I’ve had the tips sucking water a few times and I’ve breached once or twice and reattached it to ride away.

Just more efficient and predictable to sum it up.

Ultra small stab with winglets up next.....then moving stab up as far as I can.
