Looks pretty nice for the price to me, for a surf/pump rig.

Looks fine, will fit all plate foils, or an adapter can be used :thumb:

Good for both learning and light wind.

Yea, looks good. Just make sure the foil boxes are not moving around or cracked. In pics looks good.

Just ordered it, today there was a promotion (day without tax, so 21% off), final price came to 120 euros.
Lets see how it's going to be when it arrives, i may need to start searching for a foil next.
