I started this thread when I dropped from 115L to takuma tk 85L.
Today I dropped to takuma tk65L, I'm 77kg and it was a great start today, easy to start doing the stink bug start and gybes were effortless. Only had 30 mins before wind dropped, whereas I could have slogged in on my 85l, the 65l needs a bit of pressure in the wing to slog at water level. But overall, board was really easy to pump on foil and ride, I'll keep the 85l for light/gusty days but the moment there's enough wind I'll be on the 65L.

I had the 1060 and 910 but really only used the 910. Iím 77kg and found I could manage on the 910 from light to strong wind, but wanted something a bit extra.

The 890/420 combo is fast but also a good crawl speed. It turns really well.

The wind today was up and down on my 3.5m and I had no trouble pumping onto the foil in the lulls but also felt very comfortable when I was overpowered and going fast.

Took Dawasup advice and got the 890. Had first session today with my 420. Great foil, faster and better in every way, also great bottom end. Lots to learn on it, but really pleased with my change.

Whilst talking stabilisers, I put the 420 on my 910 instead of my usual 390 today. What a difference, more speed and glide, similar turning but less lift. Had rear leg burn instead of my usual neutral legs. Think Iíll try moving the mast forward a smidge.

Iím still dithering on my next foil set. Iím 77kg with 6,4.5,3.5,2.5 wings. I have the 1060 and 910 which I use in a 1:9 ratio. I canít afford to make a mistake so do I go 980/880 or 930/830? I ride choppy onshore waves mostly. I guess the 980/880 will span what I use the 910 in but was thinking if the 930 low end is like my 910 then I could do 930/830?
Guidance is appreciated.

Thinking about this inflatable for a travel board but I want to add foot straps!
Any suggestions as to how?

Iíve had 4 sessions on my Score 4.5. More powerful than my V 2 4.5, more camber, but felt it has a better high end too. Windows are good, and just everything is a bit more refined, not that V2 wasnít, but tweaks to panels, handles etc

Pleased with it but the V2ís are still great, love my 3.5/2.5. Only updated my 4.5 as itís my most used size at 77kg.

After 1yr winging Iím getting up and going well we on smaller sized wings than I would have 6 months ago, they can be pumped up hard for max performance or with a little softer feeling for better gust munching, although youíll lose some pumping ability, but if itís windy enough it doesnít matter.

Anyone got/ been on the BSC 890/810? Be good to get some feedback.


Iíve been at this for a year now from a non foiling windsurf/kitesurf background. I definitely think you can disappear down a rabbit hole with gear, changing, swapping foils and having good/bad days that could be the result of the swap or just could be you or different water conditions messing with u.

I am now down to a 1060/910 and 390 gap for all conditions and I just focussed on my skill. Iím riding better, foot swap gybes 80% of the time. Once I can ride waves more consistently and tack, then I might think about the next set up.

Just like in windsurf and kitesurf, less gear/options means u just get out and ride rather than worry about going in and changing something.

Get an RDX neoprene weight belt and stick a hook or reel leash and uv got a perfect wing harness.


I did but your reel leash belt will slide in the 2 or 3 loops that are already on the RDX belt. When it arrives itíll be obvious when u look at it. Mike

It looks really professional and is about 1/3 size of my daKine. Yes itís really comfy, the hook and strap/belt are plenty strong enough for powered conditions.

VB Foil yes thatís the one I have, just slide the reel leash strap through the weight belts loops and ur done. I put a couple of zip ties where I thought it would benefit from some extra loops but works great.
