Armstrong Foils coming up with the V2 of the HS1550. Showing to be faster, smoother, more agile, better pump and progressive then the first version. Morgan Coster, local rider in Raglan, put some words together of his opinion on the new wing:  So finally got a chance to try the HS1550 v2 out. I wasn't sold on the HS1550 V1 because I am a light guy (72kgs) and found it was to liftie for my weight. The heavier guys seemed to make it work but I just couldn't hold it down. But the new V2 is very good, great speed with not...

Armstrong foils -

 Well I have been SUP foiling for about a year now and totally love it. Just to let you know as a ref I weight about 75kgs. I started off on a big big board 8'0" 135L which was the best advice I had ever been giving, To learn to Foil you have to be able to catch the wave frist, so there is no point getting on a super small board that you can't catch any waves on.
