Lift 170 with Slingshot Dwarfcraft 120?

Postby SpaceRacer » Tue Jan 24, 2023 3:09 am

Already own the lower aspect Lift 170, which I think has a surface area of 1095cm2 but it’s on an older Liquid Force 4’8” Galaxy. I’m eyeing the Slingshot Dwarfcraft 120 but will this board be too small for this foil? I.E. will I have to hang 10 to get it to not wheelie across the water :D

The Lift 170 could be used with the smallest of boards, you won't have a problem with the DC120. I used to use it with the DC100.

Yep. Rode it most of the summer with a 106cm board and still had plenty of room up front had I needed it.

I got the 170 classic on sale too and planning to use it with 80cm Naish Microchip or 100cm Slingshot Micro. The purchase was driven rather by needing a large arrowhead shaped wing for seaweed problem in OBX
