Hi All,
I am buying my first dedicated foil sup and have narrowed it down to the starboard hyper foil 7'7 or the Fanatic Sky SUP 6'11". I am 93 kg and usually ride a Naish 9'10" Hokua 155l non-foil board. I want to use it for surf and wing foiling
Has anyone tried both? Thoughts if you own either would also be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

The new 2020 Fanatics are pretty amazing , have been using the 6-7 for wing foiling . Very good nose design for the wing foil which is really important.

Do not go too small to learn I found during learning that being balanced and centred makes a big difference in how quickly you can progress.
I am 85kg and 6'1 on a surf SUP I usually ride around 110 to 120ltrs. I am currently riding a 6'11 x 29. 129ltr Flying Vee
but this is not a sales pitch for my product both the Fanatic and Naish are great products.
In fact JB from Naish who is one of the best foil riders I have seen this still riding a bigger board than most and turning just as hard as most.
He is about your weight so would be a good person to message for advice on board sizing..
If you can get to Merimbula for the event I will have a demo 6'11 and 6'5 you can try.
Hope this helps
