Re: Belt leash highly recommended!

Yep, I use a waist leash... but for the wing. It's the only way if you want to do wing pass tacks. How much longer does the leash need to be, when using a waist leash instead of wrist, for the wing? A small meter / 3 feet maybe, or? Have a hard time seeing how you make normal jibes without it getti...

Re: Beginner Wing Foiling Equipment

I weigh 66kg and in the 10 to 15kts wind range (75l board) use a Swing 4.2 and Phantom 1480 foil. I have noticed that it only takes a few kts more (18) to get going with my 2.8m Swing. On the other hand my smaller foil (Phantom 1280) needs some real power in the wing to get going. That's to say that...

Re: Moses foil wings for Windwing foiling

I have the 1100 and 790, although fairly new still the 1100 gets me going really easily and the 790 only needs a bit more wind and is faster. Be good to see something around 1800 cm2, when I’m better I will get something smaller than 1550cm2 too. Mike All these Moses numbers are confusing, you have...
