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 killer!!
By now I'm working on several trimming (bigger wings and/or short masts) and it works pretty well for other uses. Short mast for those who ride with no depth water works well with the XLW spitfire.
The Spitfire concept works also for SUPfoiling and Surfoiling. Here are some shots made recently with a spitfire design supfoil/surfoil dedicated, more news soon.
It keeps the same advantage as the concept for kitefoiling (backfoot pressure during turns, smaller wings, turns quick, safety lifting)
Also, soon we will release a new version of the Spitfire to use with our current carbon mast, like this you could save weight and have a longer mast (1m height)
