Location: NSW South Coast Discipline: Mainly prone foil Favourite GF setup: Long tuttle mast a GL front wing to suit wave size and power, Kai tail and 4’6” prone board (4’6”x22”x3” ~ 42L). GL wings are so fast, turn easily and are the best for pumping. Tuttle heads are so strong, so simple, streamlined and light. Only 2 bolts! Long mast is stiffer, so you feel more connected to the wing. No slush, less flex and instant response. Short mast is good for those small days at low tide. Insta: @hydrofoil_sa
Location: Gold Coast,QLD Discipline: Prone and SUP foiling Set up: I love the IWA and now with the high aspect version in the GL180 I’m so excited to see how my foiling excels! Such a great set up for easy take off and easy to pump back out to get multiple waves!
