CR-X One design foilboard - NeilPryde

Postby crx_user » Sat Nov 03, 2018 2:42 pm

I got a new - never used complete CRX foil board, complete with aluminum foil.

Pro:
- reasonably light because the board is a thin twintip
- cheap
- you also have a twintip setup option

Con:
- thin twintip has no flotation, hard to learn on it because it sinks if you put pressure on back foot
- inconvenient to setup twintip board from foil setup - prefer dedicated board - so I never used the twintip setup
- front wing cracked after 4 months of use, and there is barely few scratches on the wing(see picture)

I had a Liquid Force foil setup, which I sold to get this faster one. That was much easier to ride.

I saw one at the beach the twintip has a lot of flex so probably very bouncy when you ride but I haven't tried it.. the foil looked OK. Maybe mounting this on a normal foil board would work. I believe the mast and fuselage are the same as the Cabrinha so you could swap the wings. That's probably fixable too if your handy with fiberglass and epoxy. One local guy broke his after a few runs trying to learn and they replaced it on warranty.
