Yea what Clamsmasha said. No tail wing trying to sell in a set is kinda a deal breaker sorry C.

My cut M200 tail is my daily driver, I highly recommend!

Just looked at the rear stabilizer thread... Thanks guys that's the answer... New question is a kasar how many inches of each end did he take off 1 in ...2 in? I have no idea how big the original Kai Wing is


The new tail Wing t-tail that comes with a gl's is super good but super fragile you just touch it on the Rock in the sucker snaps dammit🤣

My Maliko is now the same span as the original Kai and my Kai is a fair bit smaller now.

I’ll post the numbers a bit later when I break free of domesticity.

They have made the biggest difference so far to top end speed and turning ability.

I passed this to Steamroller and Sozzle via insta, but here it is if anyone wants to indulge in some plastic surgery.

My Maliko is now 8.25” from the wing root to tip (trailing edge). I also shortened the chord by 3/4” inch or so. Now the same chord as the Kai. A bit thinner too with clean squared off edges.

My Kai is 7” span now and thinner with square edges. This teamed up with the Iwa is a real weapon....just much faster with a really nice turning action.

One way to look at stabs, is that they are basically parasitic. They do aid in control and stability but above the minimum size required it is like dragging a section of rebar throughout the water. Do you want to drag a 10” section or a 7” section around?

Cut stabs and a taller stiffer mast have improved my setup beyond measure.....can’t wait for the GL

Anyone cut down a Naish stab that you've heard of? I feel like my OG 2017 rear stab was smaller than the warranty replacements they sent me which is a 2018. I lost the old one before the new one got here though so I couldn't compare them.

Post your results with the gong stab. I've been using the 40cm gong kite stab, and enjoying it. But am contemplating making the surf stab smaller. I wish the kite stab wasn't perfectly flat and had a little curve to it like the surf stab.

will do, got a few really good days foiling coming up so hoping to see a difference from some of the sessions from last week.

the stab is 38cm across now with squared off ends ala clamsmasha, have left the chord length and foil standard for the moment.

the kite stab is 270cm2 compared to the surf stab at 400cm2, i've only taken off 30cm2 ish so still pretty big area left, probably should've skimmed the back off the chord length too looking back.

do you think the kite stab is big enough? just too flat?

Yeah seems big enough, but I've only been surfing tiny waves. For the most part it seems to work well, but occasionally I feel it just slide out. Wouldn't mind having a similar size with a little curve to help stabilize it a bit....

Last I saw the kite stabs were on sale if you want to try one.

Clout got his Armstrong stuff so he’s selling a lot of his other foils.

I'm considering getting a rear wing fabricated or making one from fiberglass or G10.
