there's one more factor which is rarely mentioned - arrowhead shape, which is more common in larger wings. It prevents seaweed accumulation and I can't praise enough swept back wings when riding in OBX. For lake Michigan - who gives a damn.
about 25mm at least. 633 is fat thick bastard and profile depth is not often pointed out describing wing details. But remember adding 3mm of thickness to 550 and making a 548 and how much lowend effect and folks' appreciation it resulted in
Your not going to take a hydrofoil on a downwinder in Planet of the Apes.
I should start with that the video you linked would look much better with a foil. Having 71cm mast he could have more fun there on a foil compared to mowing a lawn on a twintip.SaulOhio wrote: ↑Thu Jun 28, 2018 6:11 pmYour not going to take a hydrofoil on a downwinder in Planet of the Apes.
And you can't do darkslides with a hydrofoil.
Remember how Marek B was saying “what happened to wave wings line? I’m keeping my 4xx 2015 setup!”

These wings are probably the wings which have been on sale without any changes the longest period in history of the industry.
However - I got good news - FR425 & FR450 can be ordered despite they are not on the website.
Brother, I feel the sameI do have a HP560, and it is a kick in the pants, but there are days and conditions where I am still using the older lower aspect ration wing, and should I get to the point where I'm teaching anyone, I think I would still start them on the lower profile wing so they are not overwhelmed by an accelerating wing setup.
FR425 - so far the best WAVE wing by me.
FR425/FR450 - easier wing to take first steps in foilboarding than any other medium/high AR wings.
Jolly - or maybe we are wrong & old date foilers? Maybe HP560 is easier for beginners than we think?
I wonder to read any feedback from newbies on HP560.
