Re: Why a stabi, when wing foiling?

I have yet to see anyone ride one of these better than a normal foil with a stabilizer, regardless of what you consider “best”. Fastest? Highest jump? Best wave ride? All on normal foils. Why would I ride a monofoil? More difficult with no obvious payoff. This whole post reads like “why not ride a ...

Re: Why a stabi, when wing foiling?

Cool! Makes me want to try that. I guess a first step before chopping a fuselage is to just not bolt the stab on? Since I have a tuttle box and a fixed position, what are the consequences? Would I be riding a few cms further forward on the deck? Or further backwards? You stand further back. Basical...

Re: Wingfoil boom or handles?

I have used multiple wings including the Echo. While the boom is nice for hand placement and is easy to grab, I found several disadvantages. Most importantly, the wing handles poorly in waves or just riding downwind. Yes, you will find people who can make it work but that doesn’t change the facts. O...

Re: Wingfoil versus Kitefoil?

[quote=norcom post_id=1119009 time=1605840672 user_id=30180 ...... Yet, I don't know why but I keep doing it. ...... [/quote] Extremely common, based on my observations. My theory is winging just lets you FEEL and ride the foil more than kiting does. That feeling, especially in waves is the drug.

Re: Wingfoilers versus Kitefoilers?

Was passionate about kitefoiling in waves. Started winging about 6 months ago and since then, wingfoil sessions=105, kite sessions=3.

Current state of the art is self venting screws. No fiddling needed.

Re: Lift high aspect wings for kiting

Recommend or not really depends on what performance characteristics you are looking for, especially compared to their non-HA wings.

Re: Looking for foil pumping advice

If that is truly your first time ever on a foil, you are doing amazingly well. The vast majority of experienced foilers cannot get that far off a dock
