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: 33% or 50% size gap for foiling quiver

I fly a 8m and 12m Soul foil kites. The range with these kites is very good and I certainly don't need anything in between. For my smaller kites I have 7m and 5m Pivots. I rarely use the 7m and can go directly from my 8m Soul to my 5m. But occasionally I get overpowered even with the 5m (and then I ...

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

I follow threads like this because I learn from people like Gunnar (gmb13) and Peter Frank (and some others) and I respect their opinions. I pay less attention to those who have never even tried it but I guess it's a public forum and any anyone can post..

Re: getting up on foil wing foiling

I have learned along with several of my friends on my 96 liter board. We all got standing up and going forward on the first day, and for those who had enough wind.. even foiling. One young friend (who is an excellent windsurfer) was foiling through his jibes during his first session. If the conditio...

Re: The Duotone Wing

You got any more photos of the Unit? Any more info? I can’t find anything anywhere. No. Perhaps those two photos appeared on Facebook before they should have.. before a product announcement. Dan Gavere is the Duotone & Fanatic guy and I'm sure he will post when (and if) the product is announced. :w...

Re: Toby, no wingfoil forum?

This is a hydrofoil forum that includes topics like kite foils, sup foils, wing foils, efoils, wave riding surfboard foils, and even foil surfing behind a boat. If Toby excluded these topics (by creating separate forums) it would be a mistake. I have seem other forum websites where there were too ma...

I think it is just fine to have both kitefoil and wingfoil under this "Hydrofoil" section :thumb:
I agree with Peter (as usual).

Re: The Duotone Wing

Duotone has a new wing called the Unit without a rigid boom. I'm looking forward to seeing it. The boom is very comfortable in the beginning for those of us who were windsurfers many years ago, but perhaps it isn't really needed??? I would certainly be easier to pack up without a boom. My friends wh...
