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.

Re: Wingfoiling not foiling?

I think losing ground downwind rapidly is a universal challenge when learning. I suspect with the right setup and plenty of wind, experienced riders can wing a little upwind slogging on the surface. There is definitely some technique involved such as bringing the wing towards the rear of your board ...

Re: Toby, no wingfoil forum?

I find myself spending much more time on the other sites than kiteforum. Tired of having to sort through the wing vs kite comparisons to get wing specific info here. None of that going on at the other sites.

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

Kites through lulls is no issue, you can just land on the water. Until I see a wing can do as or better on the water than a kite I wouldn't even consider them. Especially considering just the wing alone costs more than a hydrofoil+board+kite. To me it's another marketing gimmick for the greedy rese...

Re: getting up on foil wing foiling

Hey Nick Any recommendation for SUP/Wing board? I'm 155 lbs. Proficient at strapless foil. Using Armstrong foils now. I could use the 1200 or 1600 wing. 110 OR 125 L to start? I looKed at Naish, Fanatic, and, Kalama board, so far. All the Best, Cornel 110 puts you at wt + 40 L. That is good for lea...

Re: Possible to learn wingfoiling with pocket board or 60 litres board for 80kg person?

I would say it might be possible for some people but probably prohibitively difficult for most humans. I would strongly encourage you to try and borrow a big board for your first few sessions. I do think foot straps will help with low volume water starts.

Re: Spaceskate - it's limits?

Does anybody knows if a Spaceskate (H4) it's ok to kite surfing small waves ? Trying to kite surf small waves with a big foil has inherent difficulties. A big foil is appropriate for small waves but not when you add a kite to the mix. Most (but not all, kite foilers) find that a big foil has too mu...

Re: Toby, no wingfoil forum?

winging is not a wind sport, :roll: While I agree cool to see guys using wing thing to access waves, swell, still uses wind for power! As mentioned is this not a kite forum, wing thing has no lines, not a kite. R H a very small segment of what I wrote, taken out of context, don't you think? I am ju...

Re: Toby, no wingfoil forum?

If "Kiteforum" wants more participants, adding a separate wing ding section will accomplish that by attracting people interested in winging......and they are not kite foilers. They are foil surfers. This may sound weird but winging is not a wind sport, it is a wave/swell sport. It is exploding in po...
