Yep the H11 fits right on your current Slingshot Hoverglide fuselage.

Here goes the specs

The images on the website showing specs are virtually unreadable. Any chance of posting the existing Fwind1 and both new wings specs? It seems even the smaller of the two new wings is significantly larger.

Thanks,
Grant

Just curious. Is that a Northwave ZX sail you are using? If so, what is your opinion of it as a foiling sail? Thanks

The H2, H4, and H11 for size comparison. The H11 has some wild hydrodynamics. Wyatt lent me the H11 to try out.
The H11 pops up easily and is playful like the H4. The only knock I would have on the H11 vs the H4 is that it will over foil during jibes sort of like the H2. This may be my problem instead of the wing. My standard jibe on the H4 is to make a big arc and fly it down to the water flipping the sail just before landing. If you try that on the H11 it will over foil at low speeds. I think the correct way to jibe is to come in hot, flip the sail early, and drive it around clew first at speed. Windsurfing I was never able to do that consistently and relied on a step jibe.
I use some ZXs from 2007 that make great foiling sails. Very little down haul.

The H11 bs the H4 with the mast holes lined up. With the neck on the H11 the fuse has to be in the foil back position.

Would you say it requires power like the H4 or is it more like a huge H2? Is the foil section as thick?

Fuselage position is interesting, especially for us using boards with more typical fin box positions.

The H11 comes onto an initial foil like the H2, but when flying its more like an 75% H4 25% H2 hybrid. I did not use it when I had to go down to a 3.7 sail because of the over foiling jibing issue.
Now I'm wondering if I should try the H2 in the foil back position in light winds. In Foil-Academy Tony says that you will never make a foiling jibe that way, but I'm not trying to do that anyway.

I'm all about that front weighted stance (wing forward) using the H2. It really does trim and fly better with less weight on the back foot, but I'm also foiling in under 15kts using relatively large sails.

What I want to know is if I can rig smaller with the H11 compared to the H2 in a given wind range? Or perhaps use my 7.2 successfully in 8-10 instead of 10+.
