Foil with big wing

Postby theblutch » Thu May 31, 2018 9:29 pm

Hi folks,

I would like to change my foil. I am currently sailing with zeeko carbon 2016 most often with the carver wing. I love it, I learned a lot with it but I would like to move on. I usually do rodeo, 180, 360 in all directions. speed does not interest me. In addition I sail on a wooden pocket board (85 * 36). I like to ride with small kite and loop everywhere

I was looking at the lift 150, maybe there are others? What do you think?
What annoys me is that I can not test it before

Definitely try Moses Onda 633 Kite. This is exactly for what you have described.

This one ?
OK I'll take a look. This big wing is compatible with the fluente ?

Anyone test the lift 150 ?

Since you have a zeeko, join me in begging zeeko to sell us the conventional 1500cm^2 SUP wing, as seen in the zeeko spitfire thread here. I sent a pm to zeeko about this yesterday. Maybe we can convince them there is market for them in this category. Since these are just milled on cnc, all they need is customers to justify the cutting time....

You would need to check if it was actually the 150 he was using.

No, i ask greg about that, but he was riding with the 130, and this 130 doesn't exist anymore on lift webstore. He actually ride a 1075 Hydros from Maui Fin Company. Some of his friends ride the 150 and apparently they 're pretty happy

Axis SUP foils. 820 wing is 1440cm2 projected area.... I'll have a review soon but the 720 was brilliant and the 920 was a crazy hoot.

The 720 is like E9 more expensive than the Moses in that link up there...or are you just after the wing?

First European site I found...
