As mentioned a few times, I think monofoiling fits pretty well with kiting ...
... now I think, it fits even much better with winging. The reasons is that some of the biggest disadvantages in kite monofoiling are much less or not relevant when winging:
- winging speeds are slower, which makes the first try easier, also top speed limit on a mono is less or nearly not relevant for usual wing speeds
- sit foiling or the canery man, which I miss on the kite foil is much less interesting to do with a wing, so you don't miss those tricks
- going strapless, which is pretty hard in combination with a mono is also much less relevant on a wing, as you more often want to have straps for pump starts anyway
- and latest and best experience:
Unfortunately during the last 18 month I am monofoiling with wing I was to lazy to take the effort to install proper V double front straps but was going with just one asymetric front strap.
The first day I installed the V-strap, the secound jibe with foot switch I tried was already a full flying one!
Didn't expect a monofoil foot switch with a wing would be so much easier than on a kite, but that's it. During the last 18 month I always did a very short surfacing for foot switch, but in low wind the risk was always to stay glued to the surface.
Now, using also the great tip from Balz Müller to better do duck jibes in the low wind instead of normal jibes, I started to be able to do foot switch jibes in wind as low that I sometimes had to pump the foil to stay in flight ... which is much less wind you would need with a stabi foil as we remember stabi foils always have a much worse low end.
I am all around happy now with mono foil winging, so I think I will open a new specific topic about it in the wing foil section in the next time.
And not to forget about a further important advantage, as we remember, monofoils are extra light, wingfoils are extra heavy, but monofoil wingfoils have acceptable weight and therefore are much more of a pleasure to be jumped
