Hi Guys,
Looking to move on from a Slingshot hoverglide (stuck on 30" mast) to something a bit longer to help with Port Phillip bay chop and something a bit quicker - possibly interested in racing at some point.

Any recommendations on what to look for? would something like this be reasonable? www.seabreeze.com.au/Classifieds/Kitesurfing-Foil-and-Race-boards/~lqzzy/2017-Kitefoil-Australia-Mako-V2.aspx?_page=1&search=p%2FeVEIELGOY38OJR4wnDzg%3D%3D

Mosses for sure,i have the race set up and love it.changed my front wing to learn those hard turns.wings aren't overly expensive and easily changed with a big range to choose from.call in to the Zu Boardsports and have a chat with ivon

Also depends what you mean by racing, if your trying to go upwind downwind, you need something with a long mast, and high aspect ratio foil...


If your just going downwind / across you can get away with something smaller

That is a great price for that setup, if its all in good nick, I doubt very much you will find better value.
I ride almost the same setup, have run aground a few time, into sharks and marker bouys and only need to fix a few scratches to keep me on the water
Dont forget the nationals for foil racing is on at Brighton yacht club towards the end of January, you should see the locals out there most days its windy
