That's a great wing, mine is toast from using too often in strong wind. What kind of axis stuff are you looking for?

I'm all set on winging bit but not so much on the prone front. I'd be interested in at PNG910b (maybe HPS880) or 75cm carbon mast.

what did you use on the front handle to stiffen it up?

I took a piece of plastic tubing (not as rigid and thick as pvc), cut it down the middle, inserted the front handle and then wrapped it with hockey grip. Waaaay better than stock. Highly recommend the $10 upgrade for anyone riding Strikes.

Selling my F-one Strike CWC 6m wing.

Wing is in excellent shape with no repairs or signs of wear. The CWC's performance speaks for itself. For it's size, it is pretty lightweight with tons of power. At 72kg, I have been able to get on foil in single digit winds with the right foil. As you can see in the pictures, I have added a hard handle to the front which makes controlling this wing through jibes and tacks much better than the out of the box, soft handle.

I always pump up the wing after each session to let it dry in my garage before folding and putting it back into the bag.

Buyer to pay shipping from Charleston, SC.

$650. (I am open to trades if you have Axis gear)

There is a group of wingers in that area. If you're on FB, search for Panama City Beach Kitesurfers.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Heading to the Cape San Blas, FL area at the end of the month. Planning on bringing my wing gear but wondering if anyone has experience riding in this neck of the woods.

Thanks in advance.

Not to hijack but I'm also looking to either trade my BSC890 for a PNG910 or just flat out buy a used PNG910.

910 still available?

I'm not sure about the carbon masts but I seem to remember reading that the Axis foils are actually fiberglass where they come in contact with the fuse to avoid galvanic (?) corrosion. If true, I thought that was pretty clever.

Selling my Axis BSC890 foil as it has too much overlap with my other foils and hasn't been getting used very much. Wing is in excellent shape (see pictures). If you're not familiar with this foil, you'll find it has a cult following due to its ability to do it all. Foil cover and M6 screws included. The 890 uses an M6 screw that is not included (or didn't used to be) in the standard screw set.  Buyer to pay shipping and I'm located in South Carolina.

OK, now you have me wondering, what tail wings do you ride with 999 & 1099 to keep them special?

I've been winging the 999 with the 375p tail with good results and will be looking to try a 325p (or even 300p) to see how it affects turns and stability at speed.

I've been happy with my Ride Engine Vinaka harness. Here's what I like about it:
- easy to slide bar to the side when I need to paddle the board
- easy to slide the bar to ride hooked in on toeside
- two d-rings (one on either side) which I use for my board leash and maybe someday for my wing leash

Not much to dislike. I have also tied a 4-5' piece of spectra between the d-rings in case I need to tie something up like my wing, etc.

Almost 3 years of winging and never punctured a wing but I did do this to a new board recently by being stupid AND hitting a fish. Can anyone tell by the pic how my stupidity came in to play?

Does your leash have a rail saver? I went with the Creatures of Leisure Foil Coil leash. I attach it to the back of my harness and remove the rail saver from the board when not riding. It's short enough that it stays out of the water but long enough when I crash that it's not a pain to untangle myself. Make sure your leash string is short so the rail saver is what comes in contact with the rail.

Cool to see more races popping up. Even better that it is a series. Well done.

Now if only the folks here in Charleston could rally more than once a year (F2B).
