450 is the biggest stabilizer. 483 is smaller but just as thick. Then you have race stabilizers 425/421/420 which are thin but still larger than kite freeride stabilizers, closing the list with 325 and finally 330 as the smallest. You might be able to find some 2016-2017 race stabilizers (380/345/342) which appeared even smaller but I have no data on their actual specs
are there any compatible with surf fuselage?

Any of them could be used with surf fuselages

really wish the armstrong lineup had better distribution in the US, right now it's hard to find a demo or anybody who even has access to one.

The 633 comes alive with the 325 stabilizer!

Two of us have done this and no looking back. I think it comes with stab because was marketed as SUP foil so very stable and slow to turn. For kiting it’s not the right setup. Go small for stab to complement these wonderful front wings!

I thought this was an interesting review on some of the newer Armstrong foils.

Interesting comparison for sure. I’m thinking maybe the HS 1050 makes the 800/1200 combo a little redundant.
