I notice there's always a couple of these foils for sale, and prices seem very low considering the build quality and materials.

This leads me to suspect they're not a comfortable foil for most people to ride?

Anyone (not a pro/racer/kfa rep) tried one and have some feedback?

For strapped freestyle riding they are great. Carves well
light weight and strong for Jumping
needs good speed to get up on the foil once foiling it will stay up at low speeds and of course is very fast in a straight line.
as the wings are quite sharp, I wouldn't recommend this foil for strapless riding

Thanks Midtide that was exactly the kind of feedback I was interested in. I seriously love my Axis freeride foil but I'm starting to think about 2nd foil (or 3rd lol).

Probably sounds weird and maybe greedy but I think I'd like a faster foil, and a slower foil than the Axis.

I'm interested that you recommend strapped for the FF because the foils are sharp.. as someone who normally rides unstrapped I'd probably feel safer being able to get right clear in a stack...
