@Alexandre If you come in June I am afraid you have no choice but share a beer with my son Axel and me If your e-foil has a 2-rail mount, bring it, that way you can test my son’s foil, theorically taking you out of the water at 3mph (Huge and brand new Gong XXL)
@SoEFoil , Regarding a few pics, here you go
I could not try any of the boards.
Visually, the Waviator looks like a more finished / robust product, even if this is a larger motor, larger duct, etc… I would say it looked more bullet-proof, more straight- forward ( no gearbox), board hatch also looks more waterproof board than the E-takuma. The foil shape seems to allow for easier turns due to its shape, but also for a faster speed if available. Bastian is a German engineer who seems to know his stuff inside out. I think I understood 8S motor, and 200amps ESC, with a lower amps fuse… The new board, wooden-deck-like, is absolutely gorgeous !
Now obviously the e-takuma foil itself is obviously famous worldwide for being very versatile. But the board really looked like a prototype - maybe it was. For instance, I could not see any magnetic switch… Way smaller motor though, 5-blade prop, switch very well put inside a beautiful plastic box, as shown on the picture. The board has a passive aluminium plate beneath.
