Nice to hear everyones going strapless, hope I will be there too soon. Heres one of my favourite videos, happens to be Tyson Poor again, sailing in Toronto. Kind of seems like this is doable for summer jericho foiling. Maybe have to start looking for a small little sup like the one he's on, amazing song on this video too.

Thanks for posting Richi, that's a great video. Now I'm even more stoked to get back out there again. I had a few moments like that last weekend, managed a few one handed turns but with a lot less style than Tyson. He looks so relaxed doing those jibes!!

Yes. Wiz 130 at 25seconds mark.

From Aussie forum


Hi Pat, from my info the new 2021 Wizards 130, 114 and 90L all comes with the track system only ( and not tuttle or deep tuttle box)

We are still to see the new ones her in Perth / Australia, but they are on the way :), and is pretty excited

As much as a lot of us love the 'simple' tuttle box system with 2 bolts, the the track system make more sense, as you have so much more room to adjust your foil position. In a way it is as practical as having a mast base track on top of the board ( where we all place to it our own personal trim)

There is also multiple foot strap positions to use now on the 2021 . So if you prefer the small wave style sails, then use the normal inside position.
If you like to use camber or bigger sails, then the outside position.

Also there is a foot strap position centered just in front of the back straps, as a lot of users using no back straps ( mostly on the bigger sizes). And the centered strap position makes fully sense if you get into carving downwind / riding waves or even small chop.

Note that as a added bonus then the Wizard 114 and 90 also have 2 center positions , so it can easily be used with Sling Wings ( or any wing). The boards are fully able to be used with Wings, if some want to do both options,,

The extra long mast track is another improvement on 2021

We love the EVA deck pad on the entire half of the board for 2 reasons. You will move your feets around a lot more ( compared to a windsurfing board), so it is just comfortable. Other good reason is when you climb onto your board, the EVA is very forgiving on your knees and bare skin etc, as they don't go over the anti slip. Believe me this is great, as even after a few years of foiling there is still a lot of climbing back onto the boards :)

By the way, if your catapult forward with the mast into the nose of the Wizard board. Then with the more 'flat deck nose shape' the board is less likely to break the nose. Well it will happen if you are unlucky, but a lot less than boards that has more nose scoop.

We will update a bit more, when we see them here soon

Cheers
Jesper

Today I went out for a couple of hours at Nexen after removing both my front and back straps. It worked well and is something I should have done earlier while rehabbing some foot problems. Thanks for idea.

A few years ago, I remember seeing a few barefoot sailors with duct tape wrapped around their foot at the Hatchery. I don't know why they did it; maybe it was for extra support. I guess it would be similar to a ankle or elbow brace?
