Anyone on here tried this wing (with a kite) can’t find any reviews, considering this or the 695 for 647 fuse for lightish wind & surf any preference if you tried both!! Thanks in advance

The 800 may fill a gap in my quiver so look forward to your thoughts.

What is a HA 1550?
Cant see Moses having any with that name, or do you just mean you would like a high aspect 1550 cm2 foil wing?
Or an even bigger high aspect 1550 cm span wing?

Assume you mean wingfoil when saying windwing, a good name actually, although it is the name of a kite company :D

I have the 1100 (2100 sq cm) and would like Moses to make a 1550 sq cm high aspect wing.
Locally a few call wingfoiling - windwing or winding.
Is there and official generic name?
I have Naish and they call it Wing - surfer. I must be doing it wrong as I have not windwinged their Wing- surfer in the surf yet.

I dont know about a generic name Wazza :roll:

We call it wingfoil, but of course the wing is sold for SUP boards too, eventhough tough when not able to go upwind really.

Doesnt matter...

Your thoughts about a high aspect 1550 cm2 wing I understand, as it will have the same lift as a tad bigger wing, can go faster, and less drag so less strain on your arms and better upwind, and unlike the 1100 and bigger span wings, it will be more lively probably (not turn as slow) :rollgrin:

I am using a supersmall stab 229 cm2 on my wingfoil with 1800 cm2 wing, as just like on kitefoils it seems to make the foil a lot "faster", more lively and fun :naughty:

Not very good yet compared to what I see some do, but its coming.

How do you like the 1100, please? Speed, turning ability, pumping ability and low end? And what would you look for HA1550cm2 wing, please?

My wingfoiling friends got the W1100.

Good pumping ability, good lowend, fast (in speed), good upwind.

Slow turning though, so one (really good rider) is aiming for something else now, and has sold it to a wing beginner.

My experience with Windwing/Windfoiling:
Started with the 873 and 483 stabaliser hard work due to inexperience and wrong board but today many months later annd 420 stabilizer (220 sq cm) all good for it's purpose especially down wind on lake waves in 25kn wind
Next the 1100 with 483 easy pumping got me going with little pumping skills. It helped me significantly improve pumping skills. But jybing not easy compared to 873. Now use with 420 stabilizer only.
790 in solid wind excellent and turns on a dime.
In summary all good to have with each helping to develop different skills.
