Sticker shock, biggest barrier of entry for foiling. You either have to purchase in pieces (foil, board, wing, etc..) and be patient or go all in. For me, I went all in, sold all my surfboards. I saw the potential, was kinda over surfing in crowds all the time, and was ready for something...
Floatilla with a group of drunken sailors. It's a thing here on Maui. They launch up the coast with beers, girls in bikinis, guys, and kite pulling them all down the coast.
Yea sold the F One and on all Ozone now. F One got soft pretty quick (less than a year). It's a great wing design...
Things are really starting to open up, going out farther, speeds getting faster, coast runs getting better, finding bumps to luff longer, etc..
Almost hit 23mph yesterday on a little speed run at the end of my session. Best I was doing before was about 20
Anyone interested in some wings?
Iwa Light $200 u pay ship
Custom Iwa tail $50 u pay ship
GL 140 new condition $500 u pay ship
GL 180 good condition $500 u pay ship
Still on Go Foil gear, making room for next gen.
yea thought an honest review would be useful. I do get a small discount on the Ozone and could get a discount on Naish if I bought one, just a disclaimer.
paid full retail for the F One
I've also been using a GPS watch trying to push my top speed and was using it during my test sessions...
I've had the opportunity to use all wings for full sessions (F One for almost a year as my personal) and wanted to share some feedback for those interested in the different brands.
Naish 4.6m price $720-$825 (price difference for just the different color)
Good power range
Yea heard that. ChrisP trying to get a 5m and was told the same. Yes I think gen 3 and 4 should have some significant improvements from most brands. The need for speed is going to drive newer models I think. I see used come on CL here, what you looking for? A 6m?
