You can even order it through their webshop, it should remove the 21% VAT included in the price if you order it from outside the EU.


Made small overview of the weights based on the latest IKA list, sadly F-One weights are missing and there are some differences between the IKA list and Flysrufer website:

I'd bet a dollar that there is at least one brand on there that isn't using the same measurement technique for weight...I'd be very surprised to discover that Joker7s are lighter than Sonic2s.

Also surprised at how heavy the R1V1 appears to be.

Evan, do you have the ARs for the Aero handy?

No, I have no further details and the that has them is on his well earned holiday. But I will ask for it, it should be a little bit higher than the R1 v2.


Another New Woo PR, this time on the hydrofoil and 11m UL with 22kn gusts.

Ok, this was just nuts. Tried to break the 16,5m from the day before but the wind was a fair bit stronger as forecasted, just too strong and gusty to get any decent takeoff on the 7m Aero. Whaaaay too overpowerd. After five jumps and 15mins on the water i called it a day and went for a boosting session in the waves on the TT to shake the frustration off. Both sessions around 14m, if only i could hit that takeoff right on the foil.... :o

And for the ones with a VMG fetish, some GPS tracks of last month with the Aero:

Somehow I think it's unlikely that they'll give out that info.
