where can I pick the spitfire up from in the states? Also how well does it break down? I like the nobile foil system because it's easy to pack for travel, is this similar? Thanks

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

I'm surprised that no-one seems to have tried the Spitfire XLW behind a boat or towed into a wave on one.

Sorry, cant help wondering if one or another :-? 8) PF Maybe they do not understand how to make the canard work - or don...

As the angle of attack is increased, the wings are swung forward on the end of a 1 metre mast, so the centre of lift would move forward - unless wit...
