Any details on how small this rig folds up? Looks like it may only fold in half.

Gunnar answered this on facebook and says it folds in half to 65x50cm.

Really good idea for travel. I saw it weighs 4kg.
That's fairly hefty.
Gunnar, could you figure out where the center of gravity is? If the weight is mostly on the tail part it might not effect the foil handling very much. But if it's 2kg on front half....
Plus it's out of stock!

F-One also has the inflatable surf foilboard now. https://www.f-one.world/product/rocket-air-surf/

I have the F-One inflatable Wind-SUP-foil board. It's very flexy but when windsurfing the flex of the board actually makes pumping the foil SO MUCH easier because it helps you pump the foil with each flex. Once up it doesn't feel much different. The flex doesn't help as much with a paddle though. Their "deep tuttle" mostly works with the GoFoil tuttle but it's not a true deep tuttle. Not sure wtf it is really, they completely f-ed that one up.

And it's super floaty and needs a high pressure pump too.
Fun idea but not practical

A splitboard might be a better project but I'm not sure how long of a mast you can fit into standard check-in bag. 30" probably?
Foil splitboard then!

It's is more or less even. Maybe a slight bias towards the back, but the weight is pretty much evenly distributed.

They actually just told me that they currently have about 10 in stock, so you can order them no matter what the website says.

Nobile has the split hydrofoil board. Good concave but don’t jump it.
