    Hi,
    Starting search for a complete setup.
    10 yrs ago I had a SS Pro...was on verge of flips....could rotate fully but only rode away a few times.....so looking for a SS Pro or better...

    Hoping to find something between Charleston SC and central FL so I could look/try before buy.

    Are there any get-togethers, fly-ins this year?
    Any other forums I should search?
    I am a member of Facebook “Hydrofoil Buy/Sell” group.....but it doesn’t seem very active and half the stuff seems to be on other continents.
    If you have a lead, pls Email me directly (I don’t check this forum frequently)
    Thanks!
    Chad

    (Yes I see I missed out on some complete setups that sold within the past few weeks)
    Budget... would like to stay below $2500 if poss. I see Skyski has New blem models of the SS Pro for $1695 (shipped) so I’m considering that.

    PS. I’ve got a line on a First Generation Air Chair for $500....thinking about getting it just to have something for now. Supposedly it’s in very good shape, I haven’t seen it myself. Thoughts? Worth it?

    IMO forget that AC...and any older AC....can't upgrade them and you'll be lucky to get your money back....Just go with a Sky Ski and you'll be happy....If Sky Ski is selling "blem" Pros for $1700 shipping included that sounds like a decent deal....but don't forget they'll charge you Ca. sales tax (at least 7%)...so add that into the cost...Don't worry that its a blem, it will be fine.....and more than likely you'll be able to get your money out of it if you ever sell.....But First call Mike Murphy at 951-317-5333....He has lots of used stuff and also can make you a deal on new stuff....He's the Godfather of this sport and is a good guy who stands behind whatever he sells......and he will answer the phone.....Good luck.

    I have a brand new Next Foils that I decided not to use. It's the same thing as a SS Pro but in a black/grey/white scheme. $1550. I haven't listed it yet so you have first chance if you want.

    Thanks for the leads and info, I kind of suspected I wouldn’t be happy w the 1st gen AC.
    After researching all week...I think I’m going to purchase a standup wakefoil.....something like the Slingshot Hoverglide or similar. I also kiteboard and I can use a standup setup to progress to kitefoiling.

    I did like my old SS Pro, though it sure was a tank! Looking back I never should’ve sold it.

    I haven’t pulled the trigger on a standup foil yet so if you do have a nice deal on a skyski pls let me know: cjrauls@gmail.com
