Finally made it to the Seattle Boat show yesterday. Mike Murphy was at Willey's both spreading the good word about foiling. It was cool to see him there talking to people and hanging out.

They had a prototype of the new LEX convertible (does both Airboard with clicker bindings and sit down with a LE shock tower). Foil and strut also come anodized.

The new boards now are coming with much larger diameter threads for the foot beds, plus they have a wide range of adjustment (threads go from the middle of the board to close to the tip). Looks like it will easier for younger riders/shorter legged riders to share foils now.

Plus, in stead of allen key bolts for the struts, saw a ski with a manual ratching lever system. Very cool.

Sorry, no pics.

I sure hope the next version of the LEX comes together soon, but that will most likely throw more used LEX 1.0's into the used market at a lower price point. The real key is the changes to the strut and wing design...if it all works out, LEX 2.0 might be around the corner.

Supposedly, the tower is going to be a bit lighter, but the new CompTech shock, "tool-less" ratchets, and "pinless" design might make up the weight difference. All are really cool new features for the tower.

As for the T-bar & Wings... we'll have to wait and see what that will be like.

Phaeton,
Maybe you can make some oversized Lokz type of bolts to make our old foils "tooless". Haven't gotten you package yet. Maaybe I'll order some from ebay :-)
