I don't even know if people buy used wetsuits, but I have a lightly used (maybe 12 times over 6 years)
4.3 O'Neil Hyperfreak full suit in XL.  It comes with detachable hood as well.  Chest zipper.

Really warm and flexible. I had not worn a wetsuit in 30 years when I bought this for a winter in Maine, and it's warmth , comfort and flexibility blew me away.  I was used to beaver tails and arm pit rashes. Wore this in 30 degree air and 34 degree water and along with booties and gloves, I was warm and comfortable.

The wetsuit is in good to very good condition.

I am in southern Maine

Classifieds / Yakima SUP PUP racks $50.00 southern Maine

I have a set ot Yakima SUP PUP roof racks $50  I am in southern Maine and they are in box. I can ship and you pay for shipping.

https://yakima.com/products/suppup

Great condition however on one of them the integrated tie down strap clamp's spring broke so the teeth won't grip the strap very tight.  They still work fine. I put the rack with the broken spring as the rear rack and would tie a knot in the strap and it worked fine.  If I went on a highway, I would add an additional strap, but for local and around the town trips, the racks are great.

They fit a variety of cross bars, factory installed , round, flat, aerodynamic.  I love these racks and got another set to replace these.

Maybe one of you have the patience and ingenuity to fix the clamp..I don't

Do any of you fellow Zoners ski or fish and travel with your gear?
I am wondering if a fishing pole travel tube Or ski travel tube would work for Duotone wing and boom? 
I bought the Unit wing but even without battens or a boom  , the 6 m is almost 4 Ft long in the travel bag.  I also own the original Duotone wing and am looking for the best travel protection for both of these wings .

Ive seen a number of fishing rod travel tubes and ski tunes online and was thinking they might be the  perfect Travel solution for some wings.

just saw this on Duotone FB page   finally a Duotone wing designed for travel....

Curious why so many Zoners have been selling their S25 Naish Wings?   I ask because I am interested in buying the 6 m when its back in stock.

It just seems odd to me that so many Of this new wing have been for sale in classifieds.  Maybe the wings isnt as great as I think?

« on: July 01, 2020, 12:51:13 PM »
hey any of you Premium subscribers to Surfline, they are showing probably the best surf film of all time "Five Summer Stories"  It's this Sunday. If you have never seen this film see it, it's great.  If you have seen it, I am sure you will want to watch it again.  Amazing film and awesome soundtrack.

Back up in southern Maine for the summer ( Kittery Point).  Any wing foiling Zoners in  the area?  Looking forward to a few chilly sessions, although I am not sure this area is a wind magnet in the summer.

 I have learned to wing foil on to the Fanatic Aero 2000 long fuselage foil.  It has 2000 front wing/500 rear, 75cm mast and 80 cm fuselage.   Love the foil, gets me up in an instant and from all I know, a great riding foil.  I have progressed quickly from day 1, but like I said it's all I know and wonder if it is limiting me.

What are the advantages of going to smaller size foil wings, and/or a shorter fuselage?

Yesterday was out in some big  winds with my 4.0 Duotone. Some of the gusts were close to 30 but the foil and wing were very much in control and I enjoyed the speed at which I was riding.

I am guessing smaller wings = more speed , less stability?

thanks for input as always

I needed new hex keys to assemble my Fanatic Aero foil.  The original are cheap and don't say the size....The bolts used are sizes M8 and M6 , so I ordered a set of metric t handle hex keys.  I guessed incorrectly that the M8 is 8mm and M6 is 6 mm but obviously this is not the case.  Luckily there were many different sizes, and it turns out the hex keys from the new set that fit the heads of my bolts are the 5 mm and 4 mm....? They do fit, but afraid they aren't exact and I wouldn't want to strip the heads.   Maybe there is a more exact hex key for them

can someone please explain to me what M8 and M6 sizes are/mean?   
thanks for any info

Ok just came in from a great session, best one yet, but having a crazy time figuring out carving jibe while still up on foil.  Watching videos it looks like most DO NOT switch stance and ride backside. I am guessing this a kiting thing? I have more windsurf background and switch stance.

I have the finesse of a bull in a china shop, so while carving the jibe on foil as soon as I try and switch my stance, slam! I come off the foil and board hits the water.  Should I be switching stance well few before starting the jibe?   How can you delicately switch stance without disturbing the foil?

  I tried riding backside and might keep trying , but wasnt comfortable at all although I was able to stay up a bit.

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / packing up your wing
« on: February 13, 2020, 12:10:14 PM »
Just curious how everyone packs up their wings?

 I usually don't have enough time to wait for the wing to dry completely so its wet and covered with some sand especially along the bladder. I do my best to brush off excess sand, but no way to remove it all. I then roll up the wing (Duotone) and put in bag. When I have time at home, I unpack and then brush off all remaining sand and re pack.  By then wing is usually dry too

unfortunately I don't have a grassy area to rig, just a sandy beach so it's a bit of a mess packing up..

How do you goes do it?
