Re: PWA 2020

The first sailors have arrived and are getting some training in. Racing starts on Monday. We've gotta hope the wind forecast is wrong and there is a strong local thermal effect - https://www.windfinder.com/forecast/bol https://www.instagram.com/p/CCZav7ipENK/ https://www.instagram.com/p/CCd-T83B2iU/...

Re: WinG foiling?

I tried winging on the JP Foil board 204cm by 70cm 105 litres. I was using the Duotone 5m wing for the first time with a board. First thing was that the wrist leash was not long enough to flip the wing over on the water - I will have to get or make a longer leash. Another problem was that the little...

Re: WinG foiling?

My 4m Cabrinha wing arrived the other day. I got it because I wanted to try it and see how it felt, try and muck around a bit. (I’m saving for the foil and board now :lol: ) The plan was to learn how to control the wing on a regular SUP so I could learn the foil bit easier, I’m not sure how that’ll...

Re: WinG foiling?

I have a 4 and 5m Duotone wing, but so far I've only used the 4m with the JP SUPfoil with a fin. The wind was just enough to be able to stand up, and it's easier to wing standing up than kneeling. I have a 1600 foil wing, which would mean I probably have to use it at a wind level where I could winds...

Re: Foiling harnesses.

It depends on a lot of things, but Klaas Voget says he can get foiling below 10 knots with a 5m wing and bigger board and foil. In this, he's on a 41 litre board and 1250 sq cm foil, wth a 4m wing. Kites are going ok in that clip (visible at the end). Plenty of whitecaps when the drone is the right...

Re: Foiling harnesses.

I was intrigued by the wingfoiling harness. Previously I was told you need 15knots+ to wingfoil, but looks lighter in that video. It depends on a lot of things, but Klaas Voget says he can get foiling below 10 knots with a 5m wing and bigger board and foil. In this, he's on a 41 litre board and 125...
