Re: SUP Foil surfing

Very interested in how you find the wing when you get it? From what I have seen so far, it doesn't behave well when on the leash. I'll try to find a leash system that gets it to fly in a stable way. I've switched the order to someone expecting stock in a few days. The Duotone 2020 wing is due out i...

Re: SUP Foil surfing

There is a lot of cross transfer of information and knowledge about foiling from the different disciplines of foiling. Anyone buying a 4in1 windfoil may well be interested in using it for SUP foiling and knowing how it SUPfoils before buying it. I have a JP 7'2" 103L 4in1 board, but have no interest...

Re: PWA Tenerife 2019.

Great organisation by the PWA - especially in adapting the format at short notice to make the most of the conditions - achieved a meaningful result from a last day that delivered just enough conditions to make the Event a success. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_HKPKVmBSQ PWA Day 7 Report. https:/...

Re: What's wrong with windsurfing?

Back to windsurfing! I'm in Tiree for a month, not much wind so far so on Monday I went to the windsurfing loch to try and learn to tack. The SW wind is always stronger there and there was enough for my 100L & 4.7 so spent 3 hours practicing with Ruaraidh and his dad Ronnie (the other one). The loc...

Re: What's wrong with windsurfing?

I might live to regret saying this, but I can't help looking at those foil wings and thinking it is a sh*tter version of windsurfing combined with a sh*tter version of kitesurfing. :lol: the worst of both worlds? It is a worse version of whatever it wasn't designed for. It was designed for downwind...

Re: What's wrong with windsurfing?

I posed the question why other water users don't migrate to windsurfing and seems to be complexity and slow progress to fun stage. Intersting to see points made about newbies to any water activity having additional barriers. Like Sailrepair I wondered if wingfoils would stimulate people to progress...
