Off topic, but I’ve thought about this too … around here we have some kite surf spots that don’t have a good launch, so the best bet is an upwinder to the break. Can be a painfully long trek on a surfboard, but would be half the time or less on a foil. Strap a surfboard to your back, or tow it behind, then change up when you get there? Or a foil quick release where you can easily pop it off, surf, then reattach for the downwinder home?
Did a low wind test today in 8 to 11 knot winds. Used my biggest Axisfoil Front Wing 1020 and got going.Mossy 757 wrote: ↑Tue Aug 20, 2019 3:21 pmIt seems like these things basically don't work unless it's nuking, at which point why wouldn't you want to be out on a kite so you can boost? Beyond having a way to surf towards the beach perfectly flagged out, are these really that versatile or sort of a one-trick pony?
Had the same worries and size of the board (and sail) is why I cancelled further tries to go back to windfoiling. But for wingfoiling I found a solution so additionally to the board I have now 3 and 5 m Wings.mr_daruman wrote: ↑Thu Sep 05, 2019 4:55 pmI am sure the wasp is a great wing, the problem are the boards right now. SUP foil boards? Really?!? Not a good way to attract kitesurfers to the sport.
There is only one fun video, and thats Kai Lenny riding the wing with a small kitefoil/surf foil board jumping in 30 knots
