davesails- George is making a new race foil FYI. Complete re-design.
Thanks! I did not know that, I'll have to follow up with him. I do love my Delta, just getting beat up now after 3 years of use and looking for something new.

The glide during maneuvers its longer, which is a great improvement on my tacks in 5-6 knots, i can do all maneuvers 10/10 in more than 8 knots , but under that it was quite hard to be consistent o...

Re: Chubanga v2 2019

Thanks for the updates!

My current board has the tuttle 23cm from the tail. Would that really make much of a difference once foiling as long as the footstraps are in the right spot?

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

Even Nico Parlier still has a trim line, so I guess I don't feel bad keeping mine ;)

I guess you were on long lines, correct?

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

Gunnar had a video recently that showed he doesn't have a trim setup on his 21m R1V3 for racing. He said he wasn't using the trim, so he took it off.
