Chan took this iPhone clip of my first run before joining me for a light wind solo session.  It was just lightly capping (blowing 8-12 when we launched).  This was an East wind in Hood River.   So peaceful drifting around on this light breeze with the Fall colors.  That is my 5 Meter Swing and my 1020 foil.  Loving this sport!

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / The Foil
« on: October 08, 2019, 03:46:49 AM »
The wing is clearly the identifier for this new sport.  It distinguishes this from all of the other foiling flavors.  It is always visible and it gets all of the attention.  Lifelong boardheads also love their boards.  It is deep in the experience and it is easy to get emotional about a new deck.  But neither of those are the most important factor with the WingDing.  What is going on underwater gets much less attention but it is way more important to success of failure.  It is pretty shocking how the correct foil will turn not enough into plenty.  It is equally notable how the wrong  foil can say no way, no how.

Nicely executed move by Alan Cadiz but possibly a hasty choice on the name?  How do you react if some on the beach compliments you on a clean starfish?

F-one has updated the info for their upcoming line of wing specific models.  I am sure everyone will have a line of wing boards out in short order.  It will be interesting to see this new breed of boards show up.

Random / Electric Surf Vehicles in 2020
« on: August 22, 2019, 04:23:56 AM »
It seems like 2020 may be the year that we start seeing viable surf EV's in the USA.  I am stoked on that idea!  The Mercedes EQV van looks really nice with 253 miles of range.  An 80% charge in 45 minutes sounds good.  99 MPH will make Chan happy.  I still yell at people for flashing me off at 65 "what's your rush, Andretti".  Looks like Mercedes, VW and possibly others will also have some smaller SUV's available.  The VW ID BUZZ looks great as well but I believe that is slated for 2022.  Hopefully the US sees all of these.

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / F-One Swing
« on: August 21, 2019, 03:40:07 PM »
I gave in to a growing interest and bought one of the F-one Swing wings today.  I could only find a 3.5 but that is a great size for us.  First reaction out of the bag was, holy shit is this thing light.  Scale time.  The Swing is 3 lbs even on my bathroom scale.  Damn!  Our smaller 3 meter Duotone and SPG are 4.6 and 4.8 lbs respectively.    I wonder what the 2.8 weighs.  I am not yet sure how important weight is (as these are all relatively very light)...but I sure am interested to see.  Tomorrow looks solid so we may get to find out :).  It also came with a cool little (3 foot) wrist leash that is just long enough to reach the back strut handle (plus about 6 inches of slack).  I Ordered the rest of the sizes as well.  More soon...

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Axis Foils
« on: August 19, 2019, 05:58:59 AM »
Stoked to have some Axis foils on the way!  I recently spent a little time on a 28.5" (72.4 cm) GoFoil mast and found that a lot more comfortable (less twitchy) than the 32" that I have been using.  It makes leveling out so much nicer.  I didn't want to go back to the longer mast :).  I ordered 3 masts (all right around 100 bucks) to dial that in (60, 68, 75).  I see a lot of riders on ~65 (25.6") and I want to check that out.  It is amazing how a (seemingly) little mast length can change things.  I really like the simple modualrity of the Axis design.  It will be cool to check that out and see how these things work.   More parts!  Chan is thrilled :).

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Hooking in
« on: August 19, 2019, 05:31:20 AM »
It is interesting to see more riders hooking in now.  The F-one kites have harness line attachment points between the handles but it would be easy to use the unused handles for attachment on other wings as well.  This might be nice to check out.  Add that to the list :).

What an epic display of skill.  You have to love how much she is digging the music a world away and generations later.  So cool!

Man does this young guy Titouan Galea shred.  He looks like he was born on a foil.  35 liter board and making it look so fun.
