General Discussion / Politicians are getting crazy
« on: January 20, 2021, 10:44:21 PM »

Apparently some politician wants everyone on the water to go through a captains course.

Demetri of epic is getting into winging. I had him on a wing less than a year ago and he's already fully hooked.

Looks way easier to build than e foil and more fun

I did a few videos showing how a wing will push from one side of the wind window pushing up wind, to pulling down wind in the middle of the window, to pulling up wind on the side of the wind window. Those coming from kiting will relate quickly to this. I'll have a part 3 soon with me doing it on a bigger wing and showing the pump onto foil.

Foil SUP / What do people want in a foil?
« on: June 19, 2020, 08:44:45 AM »
I know there's a lot of styles out there but I was wondering what people are hoping the future of foils will be. More glide, easier lift, speed? Are the guys that were sup foiling, now just wing? For myself, my passion is sup foiling so the higher aspect, more glide and speed is what I like but there is way more to this sport than just that.

During the quarantine, many of us are stuck in side and can't make new vids or be out practicing so for those trying to learn some tricks and not coming from kite foiling, I'd recommend looking at kite foil videos. Much of the techniques transfer over but instead of keeping a kite high, keep the wing high, push out on the bar is letting loose of the back hand. In kite tricks the kite always goes first and same as the wing. If you do a tack but don't send the wing first, then the wing will pull you off your board.
This is a basic video on foot switches, same technique I use on a wing.

Foil SUP / Floating pad for dock start in ocean swell

Has anyone used one of these floating pads for dock starting in the ocean.

There's a bunch of companies making them, I was going to get a wave runner with some friends but we don't get much ocean swell with the Bahamas blocking it in South Florida so thought this might work to catch the small non breaking swell.

My buddy bought a 4 meter duotone and tried to use it once, he's a big guy so needs a bigger wing. Like new, located in South Florida. I'll be up in Cocoa in 2 weeks and can drop it on the way if needed.

Going to be a pump fest for the prone guys but for the sup guys it'll be a mix of foiling the wave and then paddle the rest if you come off the wave. Should be a good time and Cocoa never disappoints on conditions.

Classifieds / Ozone wasp 4 meter $600
« on: December 21, 2019, 08:24:16 AM »
I have a buddy selling his wasp, been used about 3 times. Location key West Florida but will mail it.

I picked up a dakine maniac harness hook and put it on my waist belt. I have some wind coming in tonight so going to give it a try. I know it's not going to be much support but first stage of development. I figure minimalist design needed since we're not needing the harness other than long reaches up wind. Ideas now than welcomed, I think it'll take the big brands some time to catch up to what is needed. I couldn't post a pic but the hook slides onto the waist leash and I hope there Velcro will hold.

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / F1 swing quiver help

I have the 5 swing and love it. I'm going to get the 6 when it's released but wondering if for my smaller wing, the 4.2 or 3.8. anyone have any experience with the two of them? It's been nuking in Florida so I'm getting over powered on the 5 but it's a rarity to get this type of wind so was thinking the 4.2 and 6 would be my set up with the 5 for travel or sell it. BTW I was on a wasp 4 today and lit up also but I'm never feeling over powered on the wasp so is it worth it to go smaller if I can hold the 5 down in over 25 mph?
