Re: How about foot hooks for winging instead of straps?

I have no choice but to wing strapless due to bad knees. I’d love to start jumping with straps but the knees just won’t allow it. I’ve thought about foot hooks but as others have said, seems like a disaster waiting to happen with big boards and foils. So I live with strapless. I think you can develo...

Re: Tips for Paddling Out Through Inside Surf

I wish all the fancy vids we see on youtube showed how they get out through waves,or how they recover from falling in the impact zone. I know, they probably make it look super easy,but anyway :) Agreed. Sponsored pro’s keep posting these ridiculous wave riding videos as though that’s all we want to...

Re: Wingfoil boom or handles?

Hi, I thought I would just bump this topic up to the surface to see if the current thought on handles vs boom had changed much after another season. Also I see the 2021 Cabrinha will come with longer handles you can slide your hands around on, so that's a hybrid between the two. Maybe others are do...

Re: Wingfoil versus Kitefoil?.

I’m always curious about people’s relative skill level and gear they are using when they are comparing the two foil disciplines. Do you guys have any video posted yet? Would love to see more riding video to go with the observations! 😀 Always gives a better perspective of where people are coming from...

Moses W1100 and S450. USA

W1100 for $325. S450 for $175. PayPal. Buyer pays shipping (I’m in North Carolina). Both in very good condition. Very minor damage to W1100 wing tip from shipping. Immediately repaired with West G-flex epoxy. Each wing used less than 5 times total. [/attachment] E6A36D6F-12EC-43E4-BA19-5BCE22114771....

Re: Video: 3 Key Wingfoiling Tips - Stance, Carving Gybes and the Foot Change

Rob, great tips! I’ve be winging for about a year after coming from a couple of kitefoil seasons, and years of kiteboarding/windsurfing. Learning new winging skills is just easy compared to kitefoiling, even at my joints-not-what-they-used-to-be-age of 62. Just watched a few videos and put the pract...

Re: Can we all agree about slo-mo?

I’ll take any video over a bunch of lengthy verbal descriptions,.....or complaints. Some angles like a tradional head mount are really limited to me whether kiting or winging I generally dislike any music background. Plain old wind noise preferred Real time speed is great, but if it’s showing endles...
