Title: Wing Foil Videos
Post by: clay on July 04, 2020, 03:15:55 PM
Seems like the Foil Videos thread has lost some steam as a lot of us are super stoked and interested in the wing ding thing.  So this thread is meant to be a collection of wing foil videos.

Seeing grey haired bigger older guys wing foil surfing was very appealing and still is for me, it was proof for me that anyone can do this amazing new sport/adventure.

So here are the few videos I remember getting me stoked to get the wing ding figured out:

For  months at my local beach it was just my friend June and myself and in recent times there’s often a dozen or more out.. Its really catching on.

This was from the other day and my friend ‘Pete’ let me put my camera on his wing.

I caught the Johnny and Billy show at Crissy the other day, so good and inspiring.

Johnny's turns have to be one of, if not the best in the world.  I've yet to see him hook in, and never seen him fall.

Clay- Can you comment on the Mike's Lab foils those guys are using for wingfoiling? I think they may be windfoiling (windsurf foiling) foils but I am not sure. Will be interesting to see what ML will be producing specifically for wingfoiling in the future.

Thanks Admin.

Mike's Lab foils - I wish I knew more.  They have giant masts, like 100cm, if remember correctly front wing is a sorta high aspect anhedral shape.  Word is very fast and they keep up with the big tanker waves that are mostly elusive to the rest of us in the bay.

When I watch that I can just sense the kite foil racing heritage. I’m trying to survive for a few seconds backwinded before completing a 360, and not getting it yet. He does it like it’s nothing at all.

  I can only imagine the cost of a custom wing foil setup from Mike’s Lab. But, they are the king of fast foils.

I could watch this guy all day long.  So smooth.  I love that second jibe where he lets the wing fall behind his back an then guides it around the outside like its nothing. 

Cool looking board too.  Looks like a flat very squared off tail and very flat going forward and to the rails.

I’d put money on it being a recycled kite race board. The pre-foiling era. When kite race boards had windsurf race fins. Gunnar wings with one. Damien in Jupiter foils with one.

Moses 1100, he's been using that in every video. Likely the wing with the lowest stall speed on the market currently. The only competition being either of the newer Gong 2XL wings (Curve Pro / Veloce)

I really like that tack / 360 at 2:48, looks easier than just tacking from healside :)

$3300 just to get to a Tuttle connection and a long wait. No info about sizing on the website, would have to be extra to scale it up for larger folks (almost everybody). Those bits under the water are the place to splurge though...

Yeah, I don't know how windsurfers can handle that chop.  Having never windsurfed, but have wakeboarded towed surfing in choppy waters, I hated chop!!! So hard on the body.  That's what makes foiling so great in my opinion, just gliding above chaos.  and tapping in when you want to.

Post by: Dwight (DW) on July 22, 2020, 01:33:23 PM
Nice Dwight, I have been curious about those Lift HA foils.  Which Axis foil does it ride most similar to?

The HA 200 is similar size to the Axis 1000. The HA 170 is close to the 900 in size. The HA250 is similar in size to the Axis 92.

The Lift pumps onto foil really easy and predictable. Almost idiot proof pumping. It inspires confidence, you can pump onto foil at will, in any wind. It does not have the typical for high aspect foils, trait of, pumping up, then dropping like a rock when you get the technique wrong.

The carving and jibing “feel” is Axis 900/1000 ish, and not Axis 1010 or 1150 ish, or GL ish.  So that appeals to me.

The ability to pump long distances, without wing power, is better than the 900/1000 and probably similar to the 1010 (guessing without a back to back test)

The mast has too much flex for SUP, but is good for winging. I’ll use them for winging only.

Stopped by the delta on my way back from Tahoe.  Man that place blows, awesome for winging and also might go crazy being in that kind of wind 24/7 for days upon days  :D

Seeing a big guy water start a 6m in sub 20 wind has me recalibrating:

As a former Windsurfer the waterstart makes total sense.  When I was out on my first real day I was trying to effectively waterstart day "1".  There was NOT enough lift to get me on the board.   

On a windsurfer you have the advantage of a mast that you can point straight up, giving the sail maximum vertical + wind exposure, then tuck the board under you feet and do a Hockey Stand.  With these rigs people are still schlogging slow and then pumping on the foil. 

--> There has to be some in-between.  PS - I will never figure this out from the shores of Connecticut.

PSS: I learned from my daughter Ruby to do a water start with this 3' Foil board behind a 5 hp boat.  I thought it impossible she said "Dad I can do it just like a wakeboard start."  When have you ever wakeboarded I asked?  She replied - "I learned it on Wii Sports."

Cool, the 6M Swing has a tremendous span too, would be easy to catch a tip. That video starts from the easy part though, he's already knee up. The previous 20 seconds are what I really need to analyze.

There was NOT enough lift to get me on the board.   



Therein lies the problem, if there's enough wind to easily waterstart, you've probably rigged too big though that may be the best way to learn the moves.

That Ghetto foil is awesome btw, was that a piece of driftwood? :)

Driftwood, High-End Trash & Gorilla Glue.  Here was the build thread.  I may have to dust this thing off and get it flying again.

I am not sure I could get up on the GL210 but the kids could.  Then you might have nearly indefinite pump ability:

Benefit of that one is you get a good view of your downwind transition area.  No windows needed for that style gybe.  I need that one to avoid the crab pots that have consumed my local spot!

It was always going to be the kids that took it to the next level.  We 'old' guys had the advantage of $$$ to buy the first generation stuff and maybe a bit of the mental perseverance to say "I am going to get this."  Now that the kinks are being worn down the kids have

1) Time to fly and
2) The ability to bounce

Man, is that some style.

We have 5 groms (at various stages of awesome) here who are all loving the wing.  Their sessions are hysterical.  It is like max 50 feet between moves and they go for hours like that.  Some friends borrowed a little Slingshot youth prototype from Tony yesterday (2 meter?) which looked terrific.  His post session smile was brilliant.  The kids want this one.  They are out their jumping, slashing and backwinding all over the place.  It is awesome to see.

Sustained backwinded riding and backwinded with a wing roll to standard toeside riding are on my current bucket list. I still can’t seem to figure out how to best orient my Echo’s while backwinded to add and bleed power when needed. I can sail backwinded on an old classic windsurfer all day long, but it doesn’t help me one bit for wing foiling. Oh well, I’ll just keep chugging away on it......

Holy moly that looks fun!  Thanks for sharing.

I had my first 2 wave wing foiling sessions this week.  First session was easy and playful, second day current was running with the wind and I was struggling to stay upwind and I felt defeated.  Both days the bowl was around head high and breaking like a real wave - I stayed far away from that and flew very conservatively.  Looking forward to seeing our better spots get some wind.
