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...

Re: I'm not convinced (but want to be)

Pick the sport that works for your beach. I want to paddle surf a shortboard and get shacked in huge barrels, but my spot is basically a small lake, so I don't.

Re: Inflatable Boards for Winging

To some degree I feel there is some overengineering with boards. I have a windfoil board I have been using for wingfoiling and it is fine. With that said, Idubt a inflatable would be as good of a board as it's hardboard counterparts in terms of performance, but it's stowability and durability may mo...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

Too bad. Their original foil was groundbreaking in terms of cost and ease of use. I have a small quiver of their kites, they are fine, nothing special so I can't say I am too surprised. Their team seems like good people, I hope they are all able to find new positions in the industry.

Is the Naish 135 an inflatable? Looks like pump area at front! Is it available? Price? Thanks
Yes it is indeed an inflatable. It's super new so it isn't on the website, nor has a price been listed yet. I am interested to see how well they have addressed stiffness.
