Hi,

I am watching this new adaptation to see how it goes. I watched the first rider I have seen go out on one in 25kn just recently on his SUP. He sailed off significantly downwind, unable to go upwind, spent lots of time in the water then had to walk a kilometre back with his wing and heavy SUP. If that's what floats your boat, great.

Once the air is out of it I roll it from each of the tips to the middle. Then I fold it in half and put it in the bag.
