or perhaps better to compare the standard zeeko white and blue foil to the new spitfire. Both Alloy set ups.

Can you swap out the rear wing with other zeeko wings?

I was out this week in 5 degrees with a 3/2mm suit and no booties. I'd take that challenge!

Bravo Zeeko for breaking a foil "cage" and looking beyond borders!

In the video:
https://vimeo.com/194233013
why does the rider use a board with three traps?
In my mind it would be much better with two or ZERO straps.
BTW. Is it too fast for waves anyway? I found slow foils working best in waves.

What is a weight of the set please?

Can anybody show a picture of the bard and foil set? It must look pretty weird though.

Pros cons
Was the plan. Although I really don't consider the Fluente a Wave oriented Foil. The Zeeko Caver is more in that direction.
