I sanded mine down. I value my life more than a little performance. The trailing edge was as shape as a new knife and I truly believe it could give a life threatening cut with ease. I have had several brands of foils and none had edges like this. :roll: :roll:
Does it whistle now? I sended my just a little and it whistled like crazy. I am trying to send it back into original shape since, but i am still not there jet and still hear some sound... any recomendation?
I didn't notice any difference. Other brands like Lift and Cab( that i have used) do not have these extreme trailing edges , so I don't see why it would be an issue. Either way I prefer a dull edge for safety.

Curious as to why you find the trailing edge to be dangerous, besides small cuts?

High aspect pointy sharp foil tips is what I would worry most about, or just me?

Maybe you ride and tumble around getting washed together with your foils in bigger waves, than me, then I understand :wink:

Lol never say never..with all the falls in winging I can see it easily happening.

Just banging your knee on it while regrouping after a crash would end with a deep cut.

To each their own, I personally fi d them dangerously sharp.
