Hi Jason,

You should try to contact Harold from Cogua https://coguakiteboarding.com/
He makes custom boards (Really good ones), and is located at Calima Lake in Colombia (think you ve been there).
He has a Twintip-Foil Split/Convertible concept that has a lot of future.
Thank you for the info, I will contact and see what he says. I have been to Calima; it truly was one of my most beautiful sessions with the fog rolling in every afternoon.

In the meantime, for my travel quiver, I have been using a shorty (110 cm) hydfofoil board with Nobile's larger board travel bag. Only problem with this is the current board(dwarfcraft 36") is too heavy and I can't fit everything in my bag and keep underweight like I could with the Nobile split hydrofoil. But the dwarfcraft is more fun to ride and more durable.

The concept harold is working with is a center piece of arround 67 cm, with side attachments to adjust the size and shape of the board, it is full carbon, so the weigh is arround 4kg.
a split will never be as good as a normal board in regards with rigidity, but the one he s been building is a work of art.

Following this!
I really think there is a market for a light split TT/Foil hybrid. Bought NP:CRX some time ago for trips but the board is sadly too big at 145x45cm and doesn't feel nimble enough in twintip mode.
A 138cm carbon split board with the same 4 holes and soft padding on top would be a killer board to own.
Nobile designers hear me!!!
