Re: Fone Strike Wing Review

We may mean different things when we say “ overpowered”. A “softer” wing works better when overpowered, regardless of skill level.

Having said that, I prefer stiffer wings and look forward to trying the Strike.

Re: Fone Strike Wing Review

I get that more rigid wings have better low end but in my experience with many wings, the more rigid ones have worse high end. For example, they don’t spill wind during gusts which forces you to actively depower them.

Re: Kite foiling set to die almost completely out as wing foiling takes hold

....... My feeling is the majority of wing foiling devotees are SUP and windsurf converts. People who are ignorant and/or afraid of kites. That’s funny. Actually most devotees are people who love foiling first but see or have experienced the limits of using a kite to foil. The kite lifts too much a...

Re: how to "surf" wind waves on inland lake

What’s the right kind of front wing for these lake small swell/wave conditions? Faster higher AR or the opposite? Don’t confuse foil speed with AR. You want slow but high AR. Slow so that you don’t outrun the waves but high AR so you have lots of glide. You give up turning ability but you are not r...

Re: how to "surf" wind waves on inland lake

A bigger and higher aspect foil might work better due to lower stall speed and more glide. They can be kind of a pain to kite with though due to all the lift they provide. Have you considered a wing ding for a more pure surfing experience?

Re: Kite foiling set to die almost completely out as wing foiling takes hold

Practical question here: if kiting is going to stagnate or even shrink, wouldn't the equipment scarcity drive up the prices, the way it happened for windsufing? I have 2 kites for each size, but am still worried that this year might be the last opportunity to get kites at reasonable price. Did the ...

Foiling is the future of all high performance water sports including surfing and kiting. Being on the surface will be for stuff like SUP yoga
