Re: Dimitri at it again. Check out the shirt.

He should definitely be a voice on the muppet show. Sounds like a European Fozzy bear.

Carbon is big wing? Needed?

I have just bought a Gong surf/kite board with a 65 mast and a medium wing. Question: Could I make an XXL pro wing shape DIY out of wood and fibreglass (heavier) but would work the same? I really want a pump wing/ kite wing and the Gong XXL Pro is £350. Any pictures of a fast pump wing like the sign...

kite wing low volume board

5'8 gong surf foil package. 55 litre board.

With the right kite wing - is this doable at 80kg and strong wind if a knee start etc?

Advice appreciated as I know you really need double the volume board but the guys in Maui are doing it on very small boards....

Re: beginner foil wing choices?

I saw F One do a convertible slice foil board which looks good.

beginner foil wing choices?

Hey guys, What would your opinions be for buying a foil setup? I'm 80/85kg and a novice foiler and had a few rides on a friends Shinn P foil. 1. Gong surf foil board and large or medium surf wing: Too slow to kite on? I wanted something around 1200 and I know the shapes are moving and getting better...

Small prone board with kite wing doable?

I’m 80kg. If I got a 55l probe surf foil(digs 5’8) board and a big foil and large kite wing would I be able to pump it from my knees to get wing foiling? Anyone done this and not used a small sup?

Interested if doable...

Re: New pro Gong foil wings?

Also, what does this mean striaght off the gong large pro foil page:

"Size L of an area (projected) of 1227cm2 (1360cm2 extrados developed)".

What is developed and projected? I thought it would just be a straight cm2 area of the foil?

Can anyone enlighten me?

Re: New pro Gong foil wings?

They do they xxl in classic and pro along with all sizes of surf foil front wings. Does anyone know how they compare to the Signature Albatross 210 pump wing which could be changed for then a large pro wing to kite on?

Re: New pro Gong foil wings?

I want to surf and kite in around a 1200cm size wing and then change to the xxl pro for flat water pumping.
I’m 80 ish kg and was going for the large surf foil and 5’8 foil surf board and then will make a small pocket board to kite on.

How much do you weigh on the medium wing?
