Wind dropped by the time I got out so only managed a little bit of flight...

Please let us know what you think of your Wave chaser board?
Build quality, performance etc.
How is it holding up?

I had seen them pop up online previously and didnt think much of them but I just went on their website and they have some cool new sizes and decent looking boards.

I think they are pretty unknown to most, it would be interesting to hear your thoughts.

Hey mate. So far so good on the Wavechaser. I've had it out only twice so far. Unfortunately wind has been marginal but did manage some flight. At 5'10 (180SF) this board is super stable when in the water making it easy to start or after a stack. Once flying the short length makes it very maneuverable. Build quality looks solid and I can't see any issues. Looking forward to some decent wind. I'm a newbie to foiling and I can't pump as yet so I'm relying on wind speed to get me going on the foil. It does though pop up very quickly once moving...

I like them. Iv got the 6'2 with the 5'10 on the way. I like how stiff the board is, the rails, where the mounts are positioned. Pretty stoked with them so far.

I had the 6'2" carbon approx 7kg as my 1st foil beginner board, was a prototype board and I'm sure it will be better now than production model. Criticised if I may = was somewhat stable enough as a beginner 80kg to stand on, the deck pad wasn't that grippy even though with those cool looking gap cutouts and somewhat smooth once wet and didn't have that rough sticky feel like the other deck pad had. I feel like the construction could be better because it can get easily be damage and its hard to tell how good the dual track US foil box are constructed at long term abuse. I sold my board as I wasn't ready for that foil advancement feel.

I've found the grip more than sticky enough. No problem with it when wet

Nice mate. The 5'10 180SF is incredibly stable. Haven't tried to surf foil it but loving it with the wing... I fitted the side stabilizer fins yesterday. Gave good straight line power and direction for those few times I wasn't up on the foil. Felt like it popped up on the foil earlier too
