i like my nobile split twintips...but the their split foilboards are poorly balanced and made my learning to foil 10x more difficult than it needed to be.
i wouldnt recommend.

i'd check out newind's splitboards..
http://www.newind.net/foilboards/

i recently saw a split t38 limited in the wild...and in terms of ride is was zero difference between the standard non-split version (i couldnt tell a difference in weight either)
also i believe you can jump newind's t38 splitboard...but not the t22 version

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!
Nobile has the split hydrofoil board. Good concave but don’t jump it.
Nice!
With airlines being more relaxed towards kitesurf gear the splitboatds might not gain in popularity either
