Foil Mount - Plate adapter universal

So you've bought a Tuttle mount foil and now you realise your board only has US track mounts.

Lots of options on the market but by far the cheapest option and most practical is the GoFoil Deep Tuttle to a 4-bolt adapter plate system.

Made from anodized and CNC high strength aluminIum, 2 retaining bolts hold your tuttle foil securely in the adapter plate. It's also is just under 1.5lbs /700 grams weight empty and uses counter sunk holes for the 4-bolt system so you won't have any bolt walking on you.

Standard 90 mm measurement which is a side to side measurement of the holes.

The front and back holes are 160mm apart, front to back.

Go Foil Maliko 280

GO FOIL MALIKO 2800 –  2800cm2 Projected surface Area – Actual area 2400cm2

Wingspan of 41" / 104cm

The largest wing in the collection! The larger surface area of the Maliko 280 makes it best suited for slower speeds which translates to added confidence and safety. It is the ideal choice for learning to foil using slow speeds and riders wanting to learn to downwind foil.

The Maliko 280 is NOW only offered in 29.5"Tuttle masts (it used to be offered in 24.5 mast length) which is thicker in chord length , meaning less flex in the mast with a wing as big as this. 

Its an incredibly huge wing and getting it up onto foil in flat or very small swell is easy to an extent. It has a large sweet spot and lots of buoyancy which makes the board it's mounted onto rise up out of the water when you are not on it! However as the sweet spot is so big its easy to feel you are up on the wing easily when SUP paddling it . It can throw you off, if you are off centre on the board which is easy to do when there is so much lift from the floatation beneath you.

Here is a session I had surf foiling on the Maliko 280 with a 24.5 mast

Check out another Go foil Maliko 280 Ride

What do you get ? - Go foils are now supplied with wing and mast covers to keep your wings pristine and protected, Mallet, screw driver and screws are also provided and depending on the package purchased a wing suitcase for triple packs. As Go foils are primarily Tuttle mounted masts in 24.5" or 29.5" unless ordered otherwise (plate mount is available in a 28.5" mast ) you will need to purchase a plate mount if the board you are using only has track mounts.(Two US boxes)

Rider Profile

  • Under 65kg: Learning to foil behind a boat or downwind.
  • 65-85kg: Learning to foil behind a boat or downwind, downwind riding in light conditions.**
  • 85-95kg+: Learning to foil behind a boat or downwind, downwind riding for advanced riders.**

 

Find the best Go foil for you - Uses:

  • Surfboard: Heavier rider or super small surf conditions.
  • Kiteboarding: Not recommended.
  • SUP: Small wave wing for light weight riders, Go To wing for heavy weight riders in good surf.
  • Wake: Beginning riders or heavier weight riders.
  • Windsurf: Easy to ride wing for most riders in light wind.
  • Downwind: Experienced smaller riders.

Front Wing Construction:

  • 100% carbon pre-preg skins with epoxy polymer hybrid core, integral cone connection for maximum strength, all cured at 250° F in an autoclave at very high pressure.

Features Include:

  • Significant reinforcements: solid carbon at the wing tips, leading edge and trailing edge for robust durability when handling on the beach and installing the wings.
  • High strength / weight ratio which means the wings float!
  • Cone system attachment allows the rider to have a stable reliable connection between fuselage and wing.

Rear Wing Construction

The Maliko 280 uses the same rear Stabilizer wing as the IWA (Blue in colour)

Some people prefer using the red Kai wing stab with the Maliko 280 wing as it loosens up the foil for flat water pumping - Tail wings can be ordered separately, but fitting them may void warranty 

 

  • 100% pre-preg carbon fiber laid up in a solid monolithic structure, cured to 250° F in an autoclave at very high pressure.
  • Cone system attachment allows the rider to have a stable reliable connection between fuselage and wing and also less faffing with multiple screws 

*This wing is not warrantied in the surf

Soloshot3 Foiling test video

Now I had the opportunity to borrow a friends Soloshot3

This is fantastic if you haven't got a wife or friend ready to follow you at any opportunity for film session.

Ok I admit I was a little worried about leaving it on the beach , but as long as you're savvy about where to place the camera this particular model has the x65 Optical zoom which helps at this particular spot as its a good 250-300m out from the shoreline.

Im a little sceptical about the company behind the soloshot as you'll read pro and against reviews on their customer service , but as far as the product goes - Its a robotic cameraman that follows your surfing  (most of the time )

Roll on more sessions , Sweet !

Fanatic Aero 1500 ....First Ride !

Fanatic Aero first Foil session. 

Conditions - Small 1-2 ft 

Impressions

It definitely needs speed to get it lifting versus wings with higher front wing volume and thickness, this means the wing has a small sweet spot and can drop off foil easily making you work to get speed by pumping harder, but it's a playful foil and does the job well despite it's odd appearance.

We would not suggest it to any SUP foil paddlers over 95kg as a 'do it all' foil ...unless the Fanatic foil platform has other wings up its sleeve for the future. 

We will develop an overall review and not judge too much more ...Well done Fanatic !

Go Foil Kai 1200cm2 surface area 

Wing Span: 24″ 

The original surf wing design that started the revolution, the Classic! The Kai 120 provides the highest performance for surfing and aggressive turning with total control.

Rider Profile

  • Under 65kg: This is your wing when you need more lift.
  • 65-80kg: This is your most versatile foil.
  • 80-95kg: Riders wanting less lift and more control.

In our opinion and others will back us up i'm sure , This is the 'Go to' prone foilsurfing wing . It can be used for SUP foiling for lighter riders or for bigger conditions (shoulder height and above ) , but for the average 65-80kg rider wanting to prone paddle into waves and foilsurf the KAI is the wing you will want to use time and time again. Lots of volume in the 24" wingspan and pumping glide. It has to be in your foil quiver bag ...no ifs or buts .

The kai is offered in a double surf package (Kai & Iwa wing) 24.5 inch Tuttle mast , a 28.5 Plate mast or a 29.5 Tuttle mast.
