Gunnar did a vlog on what I would do if I had a foil SUP board instead of a wing. I would even opt for longer lines, find the longest you can get away with water launching.



I think these wings have a big thing going for them in that they don't require lessons and anyone can just buy one a giver. But for anyone with kite knowledge today's single skin kites seem like a much better option.

Very nice video scottnorby. It sure looks fun.
I notice that the wing was probably a Duotone one because it has a pipe as a boom and it has windows.
I have no idea whether the Naish or Duotone wing works better.. both companies make very good products.

Gunnar, I Hope you get a Wing in your hands soon and test it.
Would be a very interesting comparison and great for us to know what you think is better and more fun.
