So far I have not seen any video of wing with sup board and without foil catching waves? would it be possible?

Typically quite hard to stay upwind without a daggerboard .

I've watched a couple of videos of a girl winging on a SUP. You have to engage the rail if you don't have a daggerboard to go upwind. Slingshot makes a stick on daggerboard called SUPwinder https://www.slingshotsports.com/SUP-WINDer.

hi phlow.


if the problem is only daggerboard I don't see any problems:

Another solution would be to use a ready base of keel base for inflatable board and glue it to the base of the board with 3m double-sided tape, I believe it would not release, as the foil mount is also glued with double-sided tape.

for me the problem would be to find a beach with side wind and channel or that the sea was in a condition of small waves. Conditions very rare here in my region to gather all these sets of factors.

Agreed and who wants to try to ride waves with a daggerboard in the middle of their SUP? I did my first few wing days on a standard SUP in flat water just to get the feel of the handwing but I think it's better to move up to a foil board ASAP.

Waste of time. Winging is a foiling sport.

You need height to lift the wingtip from the water and you need to be up on the foil to reduce the drag and lessen the effort of holding the wing. But a small wing on a SUP with a centreboard just to minimise paddling is do-able. Or for downwind.
