Ok, I am going to bite the bullet and buy a foil, which one?

I am using the 800cm front foil and 225cm rear foil with 95 mast and 115cm fuselage of the Starboard team kit.

From video, looks like sail shape is way off, for racing + foil. you could do a lot better with foil race sail or at least slalom.
I just changed from 4 cam sail to 3 same brand(Avanti), and ride is much better and more balanced. Foils are very sensitive to sail shape, in upwind/downwind specially.

Yeah I would agree a race sail would be better, but as I'm just new to foiling I wanted to keep things simple and work on my technique first. Also rigging is a lot quicker so makes getting out for a quick evening session more likely.

That said I am hoping to try out my race sails in the coming week or so, either the 7.8m or 8.4m and see how it all goes. Very Happy
