    I don’t think the 2400 is too big to learn on but you should start with really small waves. SUP is theoretically easier but it all depends on your experience level. If you are a good surfer, I would continue to try prone, just pick smaller waves. Also use the +1 shim. It will help manage the lift.

    High aspect is much more fun to ride but it sometimes means one wing size bigger to get started which in light wind means my biggest wing, so I prefer mid aspect in light wind.

    I know the answer is ultimately “both” but if you had to pick one, what matters more for paddling speed and catching waves, board length or board volume?

    I agree that it is essential. The most efficient way to learn is to rent an e-foil for a couple of sessions.

    You should take a look at the F-one wing boards. They are light and work well. Only potential downside for some is no foot straps. Unless you have consistent great winds I would stick to something close to body weight.

    I started on a +40L board and now am on a +20. Just received a custom +7L board which I will take my next good wind day. So much fun.

    Cool concept but I am having a hard time picturing how you hold on to tow rope, maintain foiling and also haul wing in (with other hand?) Or am I missing something?

    Definitely 6 meter. F1 or Naish S25 seem to be the best regarded right now. Duotone gen 2 announced but who knows when they will be around.

    Hey FoilMad, did you get that 60L board? I am going to guess that trying to learn with a Body Weight minus 5 liter board is pretty challenging.
