I thought I'd post again now that I've had a couple of well powered sessions on the V2 Surf 150. It definitely performs well and is fun to ride. As has been mentioned it has a higher top end speed and glides better than the classic 150. Turning is easy and it feels very responsive to tighter or longer turns. I'm at a stage where I'm tacking to toeside and then switch feet. I feel like I can carry better speed around the tack onto the new reach with the V2 Surf. When I did get over powered it was managable and easy to ride. While it has really good low end speed I'm still getting used to how to pump back on a plane when it stalls. It seems like the Classic wings slowly drop off a plane and sink. They are also easy to pump up and get planing again.This wing has a lot of lift and will stay up almost at a dead stop and it's a little different getting it moving forward again. I think that's something I'll get used to pretty quickly.

So does that mean you like the 150 surf V2 better for kite foiling over 150 classic? Or is the difference in handling have its downsides too?

Close but overall I prefer the 150 Classic. Just a perfect wing for me. The downside is they no longer make it and it doesn't travel well.
