    Good illustration of what Pitch, Yaw and Roll are.

    Looks like Patrick Rynne? testing what looks like a GoFoil Kai? foil with what looks like a 7' 6"? JP Surf Skate SUP board.



    Could maybe do with some deck inserts and bolt on deck pads like this?

    The GoFoil Maliko wing should give more lift and be more stable in terms of roll - when it becomes available.

    A picture of Alex Aguera windfoiling on a GoFoil - for comparison.

    Austrian kitefoil company Levitaz are developing a windfoil.

    We have already seen a JP board being used with a modified Levitaz kitefoil. It was quite easy to adapt because they just had to reprogram the machining of the fuselage to insert about 10cm of extra fuselage between the 'mast' and the front wing.
    An article on that.

    Levitaz are a successful kitefoil racing company, so they have potential to bring fast foils to windfoiling. The PWA will be running windfoil races this year when wind conditions are too light for normal slalom racing.



    Windfoil 'masts' have a side loading and have to act somewhat like a fin, so those are 2 changes that are needed to the 'mast'. They have already modified the fuselage in the past, and that is quite simple to do, to allow the windfoil version to be mounted to a normal windsurf fin box position.
