Wingfoiling with a canard foil. The foil in the video looks to me like it has different shaped wings compared to the squared off wingtips of the 1300 sq cm Spitfire XXLW shown at the end of the video. Zeeko are saying that they will be introducing a 1600 sq cm foil soon, so maybe it will be a Canard?
Because both wings lift upwards on the canard foil, it can get more total lift from the same wing area. Regular foils total lift is the front wing minus the downforce of the back wing.

SUNOVA board designs. The most difficult to design seems to be for downwinding, and they have developed a complicated shape for performance downwinding.
Also interesting that they wingfoil upwind a long way and then deflate the wing (+ put it in a backpack) and either prone downwind or SUP downwind back to their starting point - but that is when the rider is very proficient. The easy way is to keep the wing inflated..

Casey Treichler comparing foiling waves with a sail to foiling waves with a wing.
The wing he was using was the Slingwing, which seems to be one of the heaviest wings.

Bigger waves,


Aerials seem to be a strong point of using a wing - if you have all the required abilities.
