The foil setup itself is geared more for beginner/intermediate foilers who can't afford or don't want to spend 3K on a board and foil. The aluminum mast and fuselage, compression molded deck, and fiberglass wings offer the most solid and durable ride on the market. The low aspect front wing design allows for slower planing speed which helps get you up on the foil plane early. The shaft itself is only 33.5" which is short compared to the Lift which is around 40" long. What this does is makes it better for beginners because it is easier to get up on foil, less prone to bucking up and down, and you can get up and riding in shallower water without worrying about hitting bottom. Downside is you won't be able to drive as much and will have less speed. Rather than going with the full carbon fiber approach Cabrinha have stuck with the simpler approach and less costly approach. The shaft is made of Aircraft grade aluminum so it can certainly take a beating and the wings are made from the same materials as the twin tips. You can be sure to still be out there riding on the sub 10kt days with everyone else when paired with the right size kite.
