Tillo alum/G10 foils coming

Alex Morales of Tillo has some new foils in the pipeline. G10 wings/mast and alum fuselage and Carbon wings/mast and alum fuselage.

Edit: He's also been busy cranking out foil boards - 7 boards in 6 weeks.

Yes and I don't know. He's in Miami and races- a low wind wing is given. I think I've seen him mention doing wings as wide as 90cm which probably equates to a 1000cm2 -ish wing.

"Beginner" wings tend to be thicker - ie ride slower and ride reasonably in low/med winds. The trend to longer fuselages means a lot of performance foils are as stable as a beginner wing but offer more performance as you climb the learning curve. Foils like the AFS 85, Taaroa Noa, Fanatic, Starboard Alus, etc are noted to be pretty beginner friendly by GlissAttitude.

Quote:

Helping the novice to progress is a way to give quick satisfaction, to allow the least-skilled to access the flight in a reasonable time, and ultimately to give pleasure without galley. In this ranking, we understand the entire learning phase and not just the first flight. Doc speaks of the ease of making his first 'jump', even before controlling anything, but also the ease of making his first long flights stabilized .. which implies progressiveness and stability.

Tillo (Alex Morales): $250 for full day private lesson includes equipment in warm, breezy Miami.

For contrast: Vail charges $212 (w/ advanced booking) for an intermediate group ski lesson. Does not include equipment or lift ticket. Does include the chance of hypothermia.
