Prone Surf Foil Options

I tried the cab h1000 yesterday. I just got it during one hour. I was expecting a lot from cabrinha, even wanted to move to this brand at a time. So what? Ok the foil is super easy, a real plug and play stuff. Comfortable at the first ride, turn well also. Good wing for sure! But, after an hour , i just wanted to go back on my 925. I needed much more energy to pump the cab, and i had the sensation of dragging water. It pumps well, but armstrong wings are so efficients, they get so much speed. I am really addicted to this feeling, and it’s hard to go back. A bit like when you leave a race car and go back to your family vehicle. So now , i just hope that armstrong will be able to produce a new ha 925 nearly as efficient, but easier to turn.

A bit easier 925 would be ideal. I know how everyone feels when they say the speed and efficiency is addictive. I guess I am holding out hope that armstrong releases something new soon… Lots of people dropping them for sure out here on maui…

Is there someone here who has infos about a new range of armstrong foils?? I have heard many things…but , for the moment , just expectations. Many people are waiting, some are moving to another brands. I known they are in the kitchen, cooking, but it’s getting long…and we are hungry!

The 925 compares to the 800 cab much better than the 1000 cab. And I like the 800 much more than the 925. The 1000 is more of a mid aspect and would compare to the 1050 Armstrong.

Just changed over 725ha to lift 90 on nolimitz with takuma 158 tail (pictured with 178). Surf is my focus on this and be able to pump out the back to get set waves. The mast is so good with full confidence in turns and the 90 is an insane wind. I am 75kg, probably gonna get a 120 too too replace my 1125 that I was holding onto for the hour challenge

Do you manage to pump the lift 90 as well as the 725?

Yes - but it’s kinda different. Armstrong was good pumping it very fast and covering a lot of ground really quickly to get where you need to go but bad at low speed for ripping turns.
The 90 can rip turns but can’t pump it super fast but can pump out of holes and recover much better
