Spotz 4 Shark

Postby davesails7 » Fri Apr 21, 2017 8:00 pm

Not actually sure if it's called Spotz 4, but they just realeased images of the Spotz Shark today on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.p ... 769286085&

Interested to hear if anyone has ridden it.

I heard a while back that the new wing/fuselage would fit on the spotz 3 masts, but not sure if that is still the case.

Spotz really fell out of favor with racers with Spotz 3. Spotz 3 seemed like a decent foil, better built than Spotz 2, but just wasn't any faster than Spotz 2. Hopefully this one will get them back on top, they have been quite a bit cheaper than any other race options.

Seems like a lot of other race foils moved the strut further aft on the fuselage to get more stability, but it doesn't look like that has been done on this Spotz Shark.

Nope, not compatible with Spotz 3/Tuna masts... :(

I wonder who are the riders helping them develop their hydrofoils since Nico Parlier went with Mike's Lab.
