I use my XXLW with the 90cm windfoil mast for kitefoiling and Windfoiling. I did try Sup and prone but worked out real quick that first I need to learn how to Sup and prone surf.
Also wakefoiling.
The mast position for Windfoil seems to be between standard wind foils and Sup foils so probably restricts board selections.
As for pumping yes it needs that back foot push to lift then dive to speed up and drive forward. I haven’t tried pumping on conventional foils but feel this is a bit different to the stomp hard and squeeze forward look.

I haven't seen much talk about this canard from Onofoil. Similar in area to the Spitfire XLW but swept wings. Anyone seen it? or tried it?

Looks like they are also working on a pump able surf foil.

Quite interesting with the big "pumpable" canard.

Off topic maybe, but what is the temperatures in the videos shown above?

The foiler is equipped with full winter gear, thick suit and boots and gloves and everything.

And two handful of boys on the pier is swimming in shorts only, and also standing looking without shivering.

What a contrast :naughty:
