Axis front wings
ART 999 - condition 7/10 $450
This wing has scratches throughout which I have sanded back to smooth. Flys like new.

ART 899 - condition 9/10 $550
This wing has a few scratches and is in excellent condition.

Foiling, wing foiling, surf foil, wake foil,

So I was inspired by a chat over on the progression project forum about tying a drift anchor to the wing and ditching it. I tried it a bunch of times today and it went just as planned. The anchor was $18 on amazon:

I just hooked the anchor to my wristleash and just threw it and it works amazing! The cone catches the water and slows the wing down to like a 1-2 mph drift.  Some may wander what the point of this is. I use the wing to get on foil in some fun lake chop and then throw the wing away and I am just purely foiling with nothing in my hands. This is perfect training for downwind foiling and connecting bumps. This is also incredibly fun as a new diversion of foiling. My brain is spinning from thinking of how to apply this. Wake thieving, dw practice, tow in surfing, wing sharing. Thoughts?

I just started recently riding backwinded for prolonged periods. This is a really fun sensation. I am trying to get to the point where I can go upwind backwinged same as normal. Any backwinders out there that can help me get upwind? I saw some sickbirds in the Gorge going upwind backwinged. Thanks. Senditbrö!!!

Sickbird! Paired with crazyshort/325p/86 carbon and 4M Dart with 20-40mph 180lbs. My goodness. This combo reminded me of kitefoiling on tiny wings. Weird thing was that it glided and pumped like a much larger wing. It is only 1014sqcm. I have been riding in this tiny lake (20acres). BTW if you haven't tried winging in a small body of water, its really fun. The waves were whipping up to thigh high somehow. I had my most successful time to date of flagging out and connecting the bumps with pumping and gliding and turning all over. I'm sure the ultrashort/375p would up my pump a bit but I wouldn't want to trade it for the amazing turning capabilities of this kit. I got some of my highest jumps ever and the landings were cushy due to the small wingspan easily going back underwater. So stoked to have a foil for high winds. Can't wait to ride this in real surf. Got a couple of windsurfer water starts too(just a high wind thing). The narrow wingspan makes waterstarting less sketch because there isn't a lot of wing sticking out of water hitting my sail. Coming from mostly ART wings as of late, this one is refreshingly stable. I have found that certain bodies of water with mixed up current and refraction are challenging on the ART's. The HPS 830 doesn't flex and do weird chit in the most turbulent water.

Takeaway- if you are looking for a hard charging, high jumping, ridiculously turny, and still somehow amazing gliding wing- HPS 830. Send it!!!!

I have too many foils.
Thanks for looking!

What up Zoners? I have been perusing windsurf/sup classifieds to repurpose a fast, lightish board so that I can put a foil on and try my hand at the flatwater pump up. I will probably end up getting a Kalama 6'5" at some point but am looking for a cheap alternative to slap a foilmount on and get started. I skipped windsurfing so any of you with knowledge, please chime in on what type of windurfer might work with some similar dims like 23"W, 100-130L, 6-7'Long. Maybe even a tippy race sup. We have had an amazingly windless 60 days here in Reno and I need something to feed my foilbrain. I am convinced that downwind supfoiling is completely doable here on Tahoe, Pyramid and Washoe lake. Looking to pioneer some up wind winging to downwind paddle foiling around here. Send it!!!

There's not a good enough reason not to be.....
Then we can stop bitching about handles. They only matter when you unhook.

I had a convertible naish kite in 2000ish and then a Hokua SUP. They were a major force in kiting, suping and I'm guessing pole-boarding. They were always there, innovating, leading. Now the only time I ever hear about them is in Chuck Patterson insta and that Aussie downwinder guy, JB. When Kai was riding for them, I saw a lot more Naish posts. I think there's one guy at my beach who has an ancient beginner naish set up. I never really hear anyone frothing about the newest Naish gear. What happened?

Can anyone speak to what happened to this global powerhouse brand that is represented by a legendary waterman? My thoughts are that Kai leaving was a huge setback. Robby aging isn't helping appeal to the younger audience. Have they lost they're mojo? Or is this just my micro world view?

This wing needs its own thread. The first batch just shipped so bring on the reviews.
I just had first session on it with carbon 86 mast, crazy short and 380 decently powered on a 4.5 Dart with a 80L 5' moon buddy.
Everything you have heard is true. Its effing magical! My first thought was about how lively this wing rides. It wants to carve and go fast and go slow and glide for miles. It was a little challenging to get it unstuck and onto foil. My 1050 gets up in less wind. I will agree with DW that it is comparable to the 980 in take off. The technique is similar where it needed proper hull speed before anything was even ready for liftoff. It is a very subtle pump to engage the foil. I was doing too much pumping and it didn't work. I think I will try my chopped down 400 to see if that helps with lift off.  Anyway, once up it was amazing. The other big thing I noticed was how slippery it was through the water. Its was easier than ever on my body and arms because there was so little drag. The turning is very ankly and skateboardish. It felt loose on the yah and somewhat tight on the roll. Once I reigned in the pitch control, I was able to rip carves, slightly off wind like I never have before. Carves were solid and powerful. One thing that was a little freaky was that if I carved it really hard, it would get locked into that turn and it was reluctant to let me change sides. I will need a few more sessions to get it dialed. Wingtip breaches were not an issue. Jumping was good. I felt like it had a lot more pop than other HA wings. It came out of the water quick and easy. It re-enterd the water easily too. I luffed the wing out and could pump it as far as I wanted with 1/2 the effort or any other foils except for the 1150. I'm going to try the ultrashort with it and see if it smooths things out. Super stoked on it and will report more sessions as they come. Send it!!!!!!!
