Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Looking good Nicolas! What size mast do you use on those pics? After a few sessions with my shortened 75 mast / XLW, I don't really think that I've lost anything compared to the original mast. On the other hand it opens up a bit more playground, with the ability to follow small waves further on the...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Hi, Firstly Happy new year !! all the best, wind, waves, rollers and carving all the year long. yes spitfire is very solid, due to the G10 wings and the alloy fuselage and mast, it makes it very strong for the wave use (but becarefull not to ride to close to the beach, shorebreak is a hydrofoil kill...

Re: Spitfire club

Dear all, Firstly I would like to thank you for all your reports. It makes me think we are on the right way. I developped the spitfire 2-3years ago. It took time to make it works and it is the main reason other could not make one. The knowledge to design a spitfire foil need to be deeper and wider t...

Re: 90cm mast v's 96cm mast

Hi, Aleks is totally right, we called the mast 90cm, in fact it was launched 3 years ago and the 90cm lenght was the total length of the plate + mast + fuselage (total 90cm) when you measure the mast alone it is 87cm. At this time, we had only one mast length and after we decided to go to several le...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Dear All, there is a mistake with the take off speed, I assume without any doubt the XLW spitfire start at least as soon as the carver wing. Don't worry about it. About the pumping, to be honest, I never pump with the spitfire, but for sure it should be more efficient (maybe due to the fact it is ea...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Dear Borist, The balance is very close to the original one My preference goes to the XLW in waves smaller than 1.5m, and with a 12m kite. Still love the standard spitfire in high winds + bigger waves. About the swing, it was a major work on the XLW, not to have it more difficult (span is very import...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

I want more subjective info. How does it feel? Who does it suit? Lots of great riding in that edit, but as a strapless foiler much of it is not what I'm personally looking for. Want to see you riding waves much as you were doing in the first few spitfire clips only perhaps slower and tighter to the...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Dear All here is a short edit about the ability of the XLW spitfire. New wings will be available for shipment 17th of July About the sizes, span is close to the standard wings, we increased the surface area (total surface 800cm² instead of 590cm²). It gives a earlier take off without sacrificing the...
