Takuma LOL foil update

In answer to some questions I was asked by a customer about the new Takuma LOL foil 
I have tried the 1600 LOL ...I love it ... its an amazing foil !
Yes its a different design which needs some consideration , but I haven't had an issue, but then again I don't ride my foils into rocks - never have!  If you do hit the bottom with your Takuma foil maybe they are not made the same way as Go foils are ....but its not the same price point .
The Full carbon models are not in Europe yet ...Its expensive shipping by air unless you want to pay this and therefore high import duties ?
In my opinion the new Takuma Lol foils are accessible and they can be used in the regular conditions you have gotten used to using your current foils in (whichever brand that is )
However
The Lol foils give you a definite progression in riding potential but are not any more difficult to use , the speed gain on other foils I have ridden is noticeable. I'm a convert regardless of the pointy bits on the wings !
Armstrong, Signature and Go foil to an extent are brand market leaders ...but this foil is a market leader ...No it's a 'Game changer' !

Takuma LOL FOIL

Takuma has a new foil !

Cyril Coste owner of 'Takuma' has has been busy working alongside foil genius Laurent Borgna.

The foil was tested extensively in New Caledonia in all conditions from 'surf' to 'downwind' and is quite unique to the foil market.

The foil is super efficient and has been described by testers as  a 'magic foil ' with an unreal feeling giving long flight and incredible speed in turns.

The fuselage has been re -worked from previous models and features a hexagonal fitment to the wing spigot and tail shims 1 & 1.5mm shims are provided for tuning. Hardware provided is M6 Torx.

Primarily designed for use with their Efoil  Electric Hydrofoil board) allowing a smaller motor to be used . It is super efficient even though it looks unlike any other foil on the market.

Available in Alloy mast and fuselage with carbon wings (pictured below) and a full carbon fused mast and fuselage version Pro foil version.

1300/ 1600 and 1900cm2 wing sizes to suit all conditions.

Short Review  1600 LOL - I've been using this 1600 foil for over 2 months now and its game changing. Why ? Well a few key points

  • When I would normally need a 2000cm front wing - this wing catches the same slow swell with ease!
  • Pumps with so much more speed - so you can catch the bit of swell in front of you and drop in when foiling
  • Does not overfoil easily and holds true when you get those sudden surges of swell energy this foil has your back - it just soaks it up , no more wing breaches and nose rinses!!
  • massive range - I've used this in 1 ft to 4ft plus - the best allround foil.

 

Short Review  1900 LOL - I’ve been using the 1900 wing over the past week in strong-very strong winds in downwind foiling conditions. 

  • It catches steep blown swell well and carves nicely once up on foil.
  • The thing i’m mainly impressed with is:  it’s top speed , I dropped into some meaty wave troughs and it didn’t breach like other larger wings can do. 
  • The 1900 always makes you feel, you’re in control. 
  • Pumps well too when you scanning the horizon for the next bump to run with !
