I’m 80kg. If I got a 55l probe surf foil(digs 5’8) board and a big foil and large kite wing would I be able to pump it from my knees to get wing foiling? Anyone done this and not used a small sup?
Interested if doable...

People have done this. It might nor be easy though. In windsurfing days, about 10-15 years ago, I had an 80L board I could waterstart and stand on, though the water level was at my knees. Once moving, the board would work its way to the surface with sail pumping, wind or wave action. I was 78kg at the time.
Long story short no doubt it’s possible.
Easier with a board that has more liters than you have kilos.
