Nice work.  Thanks for the vids.

Hey burchas,

How durable  does that F1 feel.  I heard they are light but the person I talked with was questioning the longevity of it.

One thing I see and this is just my opinion.  If a leash becomes an "official" requirement rather than sup rental companies just making their customers wear one, I see a lot more red tape.   Because now any official life saving leash is going to have to be put through a series of proving tests and be have some sort of certifications.  This could now be the life or death link. And if it some how fails, now it is just another avenue for blame and lawsuits.

Thanks for that feedback.  A lot of the wings look very similar.  But a few are different from the rest and the SPG is one of those.  They look stout and you like flying them so that is good to hear.

Just found this video and found it informative.  I see this also as helpful practice for getting going in waves.

This vid show the F-one Swing in action.  This may be the most reduced wing out there.  Very minimal and I imagine very light.  The F-one team is riding these with tiny boards and straps in higher wind, boosting big airs, and making it look great.  This shows a much lighter day and a full float board.  4.2 wing and an 1800 water wing.  Those seem like very smart sizes.  Something right between an M-200 and a Iwa sounds delightful.

That guy only has one arm, too.

123L at 205lbs (93kg)  (30 L over or a ratio of 1.32)  is doable. Beached has some surfing talent.  I am 194lbs or so (88kg). the first time out on a wing and foil I thought the same thing as beached being on a 6'5" jimmy lewis flying V which was 115L. So for me that board was 27 L more or weight to float ratio of 1.3.    I was worried about the stability and I was in 1 foot chop.  It was honestly no problem.

Just found a video of the down under guys talking about this almost exact topic.
