Big Winds in Oregon, I think Sozzle has a bit to say about Takuma though...Who sells LoL Takuma stuff? I want to price them. Probably gonna switch brands if that next stimulus check comes through haha.
yeah but the new build should have addressed that problem.
How much do you weigh? Are you saying the 1300 is to much foil for small waves, but the 1600 with a different tail is easier to manage?Allegedly takuma have fixed their shïtty build quality judged from a post by piros on seabreeze, no other info on that from anyone else though, Jacko was super pushy to sell em at the start but I gather from a comment he had the same problems I did after a while, for him and some customers, cracking of tips and trailing edges and incurable water ingress.
The ride was never an issue for me, my issues were simply with the build and them being a shïtty company that doesn’t give a fvck about their customers when they clearly knew they had an issue out of the gate, several posts on seabreeze confirmed this.
I’d love to get the 1300 for medium days but I just can’t morally support a company run buy total cvnts. Plus it’s still way too big for what I want for decent sized waves.
The 1600 paired with a high aspect tail wing is a real good pumper and is way more manageable with regards to over foiling, stock tail is lifty as faarrkk! With a skinny tail my 11 year old was carving around on the 1600 the other day.
Apparently they’re bringIng out a 1000 version but no solid details on that yet, that would be a killer foil.
1300 would be fine in small waves but I might struggle to do what I want in headhigh plus waves on it, my 1150 gong is too much for me for a lot of the turns I’m trying.
1600 is complete overkill for me but the tail brings it in a bit, I am only using it in tiny waves where my friend is on his gl210,
I’m mainly only riding it as I’ve been teaching my kid to foil and he’s been on my 1150 gong wing but his new 995 gong turned up yesterday so I’ll be off the takuma unless it’s knee high and weak.
Foiltheworld is my weight and he did say in his review he thought the 1300 was too lifty for him in medium surf at points when doing turns.
Def go 1300 for your purposes, plus a new stab down the road is always an option to up the pump on small days.
That line is to confusing for me. Every review says the 1300 is great and pumps above it's size, but then you go to buy it and the shop guys say oh at 185 you're probably to big for that let me check. The head of Takuma said you could go with the 1300 for good turning or the 1600 for pumping 2 for 1's. Well which is it?Takumas biggest problem is They don’t have smaller wings for bigger surf, they’re super into downwinders so I do wonder if they’ll expand downwards
You won't depapointed with this setup, two good friends (really good surfers) switch to this set exact set up and they are so grateful, they now can pump to catch mutiple waves and do nice big carving turns.That line is to confusing for me.

I got a deal with Axis somehow, and I'm not really sure how. Just fell into the situation. Steamroller is paying me back for finding him a foil setup years ago. Now he somehow hooked me up with an Axis setup for a good price.
