That's a lot of wings. Some look pretty similar.

I have the impulse foil. Amazing piece of kit. super smooth and stable and is great for riding ocean swell. Feels like you are riding on a Cloud :D

It looks like they have based the design about the Impulse Wing (Cloud 9 design). To be honest it is the best foil I have ridden, incredibly smooth and a very unique floaty feel to it.

I guess it is because it was originally a surf foil it really seems to pick up on the wave energy. You get it on a small wave and it just sits there like you are rolling down an endless hill on a skateboard. Excellent piece of kit.

I just got it a month ago or so, direct from Cloud 9 (s24), it really is a near perfect foil for cruising and waveriding

demoed the new wings in July.

I've been riding the thruster setup for the past two years.

the flite, yellow orange wing, is a slow stable wing meant for learning. it felt a bit weird to me, and I couldn't figure out the pitch stability in the few tacks I took.

the glider, the blue wing, I think is going to be a popular wing for them. it looks like an oversized thruster wing. I will likely buy two, one for me and one for the wife.

also interesting is the new quick disconnect setup. instead of slotting into a rail system, which ends up jamming up with sand, they have a half collar that worked very well the few days I had on it.

the new aluminum fuselage is lighter than the legacy carbon fuselage.

lots of exciting stuff.

I really want to find out if the new fuselage is compatible with the thruster wings. if so I'd pick up the carbon thruster wings as well.

I have photos I can post later.

I'm curious about whether the old Thruster wings will fit, too. I'm guessing they'll have a shim set for them like they do for their other fuselages but it'd be good to know for sure.

The website pictures make it look like the Thruster wings now have a raised section where it meets the fuselage. Did you notice that when you looked at them during the demo?

they didn't have the thruster out for demo, only the new wings.

they just posted product videos on their YouTube channel and the thruster setup is shown with the classic fuselage, not even the HD fuselage.
