Thanks, W790 is in my mind (but also w1000 haha). I don't wing and still find the mental exercise of a kite free in the sky and foil underwater ideal.
Don't have a peak3 because the 4 is already too fast for me but maybe in lower winds and bigger hidrofoils (and a bit higher skill haha) it would be grate, thanks for shearing.
Weight of the rider is important since cavitation on the top surface of the wing would happen sooner on a wing with a smaller span (I’ve been doing some fasting in this pandemic and are down to 81km haha)

Any more recent experience with the W800 and W1000 wings for wingfoiling? I'm looking to expand my quiver with something that is capable of more speed and I'm not sure whether the W800 or W1000 would be a better fit. Currently riding W1100 which is great for lowend and endless glide, and W790 for carvy turns in the waves. I weigh 73kgs and ride a 5'0'' 75l board.

I can only say that the w1000 was difficult for me at the beginning kiting, now with more time with it, It has been better; I can go downwind easy but still toe-side and jibes are harder than with the w633. What is grate is the ability to go upwind with small peak kites, it is fantastic. I don't do wings.

Ok I read about w1000 and bought it and its not really what I read about here.
My 790 gets me up way earlier, w1000 demands 9ms plus wind.
But I discover the glide and useability with kite on light wind days.
But its harder to ride and you have to get used with it.
I love the kite fuse tho.
And its freakin dangeraus!
