You are right! Handling the wing is very similar to a windsurfing sail and riding the hydrofoil is similar to surf foiling, sup foiling. Wing foiling also uses similar foils as sup and surf foiling.cosmo wrote: ↑Tue Aug 18, 2020 7:43 pmIm the only one who think wingfoiling have more in common with windfoiling than kite?
I dont have any interest, nor any condicion in my local spot to incentivate me to try...slower than my foil, no harness (arms all day?), not have any single peace of equipment in common with a kite beyond the wetsuit.
...ok yes, the same industry, dealers, etc.
The board/foil aspect of Wing foiling may have similarities with other foiling sports but the wing handeling is closer to windsurfing and has nothing in common with flying a kite.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Wed Aug 19, 2020 7:02 pmI think it is has a lot in common with all other wind and/or wave watersports.
Windfoil, windsurf, kitefoil, wavekitesurf, surf, foilsurf.
It is quite different from all above, but somehow gives you the "best" of most of above - difficult to explain if you havent tried/learned yet
Maybe that is why I love it so much
