Okay, companies are rolling out foils faster than I can keep track, and announcing products that they don't actually have available even faster. My Ke Nalu 775 is about the same size as Go Foil's Iwa and I just can't get it up and flying unless the swell is pretty sizable. Most people I know around my size are riding a Maliko 200, but technically that foil isn't rated for the surf, or for people my size. I'm looking for a foil that is:

1) Available for order right now
2) Can lift a 240 lbs surfer in small surf (.8ft @ 9 sec)
3) Tuttle Mount
4) Not going to void my warranty by taking it in the surf

Is it out there and I'm just missing it, or am I dreaming?

GoFoil Maliko 200. I'm heavier than you. It works great in that surf. Everything else is too small.

Yes, the warranty for us big guys is terrible.

But nothing else works.

Signature albatross might be it. I heard from my 280 lb friend on Maui, it is good.

Here you can see it pumping with little effort and it seems to travel far with each pump.

I've never seen one myself.

if anyone has one of these im really keen to see what makes them chooch.

it seems crazy that on such a high aspect wing they are going so slow or are they massive surface areas??

Signature have just opened a shop on the Gold Coast at Coolangatta next to Ripcurl . The Albatross wings do look really good .

Slingshot Infintiy 84. About 2000 sqcm like the Maliko 200.
The 84 made a noticeable difference in lift to the 76 that i had before for my 90 kg / 200 lbs.
I don't know of any warranty execptions.

Does Slingshot do a tuttle box? I can't find that option.
