Re: Switch Surf Wing 4.0 Detailed Unboxing and Visual Examination

I watched this months ago, the wing looks interesting. It seems there is so little info about them out there. Is this your review? If so, how do you like it now?

Re: Wing with Boom and center rib

Looks like Alan Cadiz to me too. Only he's usually a harness line rider I think. Good speed. Could be Duotone are loathe to entirely ditch the boom after some of their retailers are claiming it's the only way to make a good wing. North/Duotone seems to like to keep ideas alive well past their expir...

Re: Wingfoil boom or handles?

I think pumping power comes from rigid structure, the less it flexes the better. Until Aluula or similar becomes available to all manufacturers i only expect marginal improvements on what we have now. Serious question: What is the advantage of Aluula for a wingding other than weight savings? If a w...

Re: OK setup for a beginner on flatwater?

Thanks Eltreato and gription. I really appreciate hearing this. I am right around 5'11 to 6ft and have been wondering if a 6m would be too cumbersome. I've seen some models are supposed to be "less wide," so I may have to research some, then just make a decision and live with it. If I could do it a...

Re: OK setup for a beginner on flatwater?

You sound a lot like me I weigh the same and have probably about 7 or 8, mostly lightwind sessions in to the sport. I came at the sport primarily as a windfoiler and my 6'6" 125L windfoil board doubles well for winging, for now it's not too big. Given I ride lightwind, spots I would probably only go...

Re: SABfoil Moses?

SAB helis were top notch when I was in that hobby until I got tired of stressing about crashing all the time. Imagine everytime you crashed foiling you smashed your mast in half and snapped a piece off your front wing then had to replace all the carbon bits and rebuild your toaster. That's rc heli f...

Re: hybrid high wind wing and kite board

I've heard of people strapping bodyboards on to their kitefoil boards and getting away with them as a low-volume wing setup.

Re: 2, 1 or no Leash? A case by case discussion?

I would think kitefoilers would be the strongest proponents of board leashes, we all know how fast a foilboard can get away from us downwind, it has to be experienced to be believed. Same goes with wing boards. We also know that a wing can't be loaded up the same way a kite can that's dragging someo...

Re: Airush wind wing review

I have the 5m and while I've only had a couple short sessions on it, it seems great so far. I am new at this and had no problem getting going with the wing. Pretty stoked that the shop was out of Naish wings and recommended this one instead. As for the windows it seems like they are great for seeing...

Re: Who are the Wing foilers ?

Windsurfing->kiteboarding->kitefoiling->windfoiling->wingfoiling for me. I'm still mostly windfoiling though. What do you like about wind foiling, compared to kite foiling? Great question. I like that when the city lifeguards show up in the summer I can still windfoil my guts out from the old winds...
