Been there, done that.

Never again.
seems this option good enough, looks same like gong or zeko or other alu-carbon foils builded in same factory...
I trying to kill same construction gong foil in Tarifa waves at this moment but foil still alive :D

you sure do you need such a big front wing? around 1500cm2?
It is for my nephew. I have no idea. I know it's his first foil.

Do you think that to be the priner foil is too big?

What dimensions would you recommend? Its weight is 70 kg and kite since 6 years.

thanks

I started on 700 wing, then my friend bought gong freestyle with 1500 wing, and was so easy to progress...
on 1500 wing very easy to start, at low speed, you can plane and turn but more difficult to ride at bigger speed...
now I riding 700 wing but would like to have bigger wing too depend on condition
ask seller offer foil with 2 wings, big wing and smaller like 700cm2 and you will have set for pretty long time depend on the condition and style

Nice job! I see you used a sandwich of lighter and denser foams. What was the carbon cloth layup (weight and layers)?

You can knock another 200g off that by using peelply trick on the deck and not use deck pads
