Re: I sold my flysurfer soul in favour of.

I know at least 5 local riders who bought into the Soul hype but all have since sold them. Same here, overrated. So many better foil kites out there, faster, less bar pressure and performance. Most Soul buyers are first-time foil kite buyers so have no reference to compare and follow the heard. Goo...

Re: Wingfoiling not foiling?

I have seen some small SUP's I think Kalama with a small fin in the middle of the board, perhaps the solution?

Also F-One have an SUP with removable middle side fins for "Winging" without foil.

Re: The Duotone Wing

I suppose rider weight is also critical.

Re: Lightweight foil for wing foiling please

My 6' 4" Fanatic board is 96 liters and you don't want much smaller volume than this for learning (for average weight rider). It is just under 5 kg (11 lb) which isn't bad. But the airlines will certainly charge for oversize with this. My bigger concern is my foil: My Fanatic 2000 cm wing is 1.8 kg...

Re: The Duotone Wing

PS if you look at the Naish video of them jumping it, it hardly deforms under the strain. Quite a contrast to the V1 Naish wing that was a one-size-fits-all floppy noodle....The sport/technology is progressing quickly :D Wouldn't some deformation be desirable? A flexible wing should give a bigger w...

Re: Wingfoil - is it truly the best for really gusty winds? Better than Peak4?

When wave riding the kite is always in the way, the wing gets out of the way. you guys look like you're having a great time, but carrying around that huge wing seems a lot bulkier and 'in the way' then holding a small bar attached to a kite. when i'm kite foiling, and if i have the right size kite,...

Re: Wingfoil - is it truly the best for really gusty winds? Better than Peak4?

I have been in a lot of places where the wind was so gusty and shifty (more than 45 degree changes) where a kite would basically just fold and fall out of the sky. This sounds like you're describing Flag beach, but since you didn't mention the swell from three directions at once, could be anywhere ...

Notice the accentuated use of red on the release, this is the extra performance version.
In what way?

Re: The Duotone Wing

With or without boom seems to be the debate among Wingers these days. It is still early days for a final verdict but with Duotone releasing a boomless wing and non of the other manufacturers making Wings with booms might be setting the trend? Looks like they adopted an F-One Swing configuration with...
