We have good winds and good wind swells along our large coast line and I am thinking that epic downwind trips (or up and down) with a small good drift kite like the peak 4 and a large foil might be my next frontier.
I also think that the w1000 (w790?) might be good since (It seems) I can go fast and slow (and grate upwind angle); does this seem good thinking? Thanks
In theory yes. Although I would tend to go with the 800 if using a kite. However it is so fast that I have doubts about even the Peak 4 being able to drift with it. In my video I was even overtaking my wing with almost no swell pushing me. I imagine in big swell the speed will be too much for any kite to handle.

Thanks Gunnar, what I don't understand yet is: is it easier to go slow with a slow foil? Otherwise, it would seem to me that a wing that can go both slow and fast is intrinsically better than one that only go slow?
Also, the 1000 can go slower (for a 85kg rider) without stalling than the 800?
Yes the 1000 can go slower than the 800. However on a downwinder going slow is not really what you want. You want to be able to at least match the swell speed and even better be faster than the swells to be able to turn on the them and also overtake them and get to another better swell.

Thanks Gunnar, that sounds fun.

I’m starting to get it; wind wings might also be a thing BUT... I’l develop kiting skills first to see where I can go.

Going slow might be THE thing.

Yes.
I use it mainly with the 670, 800 and 1000. Even though it has less spann it feels more stable than the 421 with these wings. especially for winging.
