Hi Avery!  Shoot I forgot this is your screen name.

Yeah man head south, tons of stoked wingers, a really good group of folks.

I've supped and foiled up to 10 foot waves on big boards at spots that pack a punch, if the leash is breaking in 3-4  foot surf something is amiss...

My leashlock waist belts are 2+ years going strong, can't speak for their leashes.  Sticky bumps full coil have worked for me, no breaks, cut one on a mast trailing edge.

Currently testing Kaohi leashes

Been a fan of JL boards, light strong functional.

Curious what your 75L board weighs?

I live in one of the wind capitals of the world, SF.  Quality probably a notch or so below Maui or the Gorge, but we have numbers as in millions of residents.

The local shops struggle to have stock.

I've heard fone ozone ensis are either out of stock, or low stock, and months out to get stock.

I don't dare sell a wing or board because who knows how long until I get a replacement.

If there are lots of wing companies I'm not seeing them here

This video shows the difference between wing tip breach, and mast ventilation - can see the air travel down the mast to the tail (around 4 minute):

The Strike marketing video is big airs and wave riding, while the v2 is cruising and beginners on inflatables.

Curious to hear what the differences are between the 2 wings.

Vector Graphics is one name for them.  SVG is a file format.

Adobe illustrator has a Image Trace feature that will trace any photograph/drawing and convert it to line art or a scalable graphics file.  I would guess there is a free ware equivalent out there.

Wind was light so Mickey was on 910 and 90cm, his go to sup foil setup.

If I remember correctly he likes the 880 with 105 when there is more wind.

I agree it must be really hard to sit there on a surfboard not catching waves, an appealing foil/wing display has to win some folks over...

@daswasup - I hear you, thanks.

Wind lightened up so I came in and filmed Mickey:

I would think hard plastic and hard metal will have the same dinging effect on a surfboard, especially a custom.

I can't find my dakine chameleon and have been using the old ozone v1 one size harness and I really don't like how floppy and flexy it is, hooking in doesn't has the same solid feel.

Has a hook that folds 90 degrees been tried?  recessed into a padded layer that will protect the board...  Maybe even have one of those locking type pins on knives to keep it from accidentally collapsing and trapping the harness line...

By the way, I would love to get some underwater action video of this wing to actually see what’s going on down there.  Any ideas as to how this could be accomplished?

I have an idea and a camera, yet to try it, my water is usually to murky and not worth the effort.  Send me an email if you want to know more.

First time I wing foiled on my smallest board I pushed the foil all the way forward and felt out of control.  Then Dwight's comment about a small board loosing it's mind popped into my head.  So I went in and moved the foil back in the tracks, voila it flew normal.  Couldn't understand how that would be possible without experiencing it myself.

I would much rather see comments, even if I don't' like them, then not have any comments.

I read or follow "news" if it has a comments section, I wanna hear what people have to say.

I bought some poor quality gear and the company's videos had comments disabled, red flag for me now.
