Just a warning to those, who like me, are generally too lazy to fix a waist leash that ends up between your feet.   If you are out riding head high waves, and your leash is routed between your legs, and you breach going 20 mph, your twig'n'berries (or lady parts) will become the new anchor point between you and your board.

 I narrowly escaped a full on 'seeing stars' event when this happened to me last session.  Super exhausted and trying to avoid more time in the water, I ignored the leach routing around the front of my rear foot, through to the leash.  Caught a nice size set wave, breached and ejected off the nose for a 'graceful swan dive', and was still airborne when my retractable waist leash, which extends some 15-20', ran out of slack.  No bueno!  Even damaged the exterior of my wetsuit (which I'm very glad I was wearing).   

Take the time to do the awkward rear leg lift dance to get the leash in place, or else!

Prone Foiling, Surf foiling, Pump Foiling / Armstrong HS1050
« on: August 03, 2020, 09:59:57 AM »
Anyone else out there paddling in on the Armstrong HS1050 wing?  Whenever the waves get over stomach high, I grab this wing and every time it blows me away. 

I just had it out in a 3' at 12 second beach break high tide session and I was dropping in on closeouts and flying around sections I wouldn't have thought possible.  The drops are much easier than the 1200 in steeper/larger waves.  So predictable. 

My favorites to watch rip on this wing are @sky.rama @1to2andfiring and @foiltheworld

So I'm excited to see what Armstrong's upcoming Wing Ding has in store.  I spoke with an insider recently and got some interesting tid-bits that I can't divulge, but I can say that Armie's goal is a STIFF wing. 

Here's a clip from Youtube:

Notice how little the wing deforms during the Air.  Looks stiff!

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Mast Length
« on: April 10, 2020, 07:41:35 AM »
I had been winging on a 72 cm (28.5") Mast and just had my first session on an 85 cm (33") Mast and it was amazing! 

What is everyone else riding?

My local river spot is onshore often and when it's high tide, wind waves smash into bulkheads and rebound back out in one area, causing horrific backwash wave action.  I hated going into that zone with the 72cm mast as I would breach  often.

Where I'm noticing the most benefit of the 85cm mast is self-towing into wind waves and going into neutral and basically downwinding.  I had my best session to date, linking multiple bumps.  The extra few inches really keeps the number of breaches down.  Plus its fun to be extra elevated!

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Foot Straps
« on: October 21, 2019, 08:01:45 AM »
Who is using foot straps when winging?  I'm considering adding some to my FSM SUP using NSI adhesive surface mount inserts.  Was leaning towards the Armstrong straps.  Two up front/offset to allow switching stances and one strap over the mast.   While looking at NSI's sight, I came across this T-90 Foot Strap:



Seems to have come out some time ago to quite a bit of ridicule from kiters (big surprise).

I was thinking of setting up a similar orientation with the two Armstrong straps up front.  Anyone think this 'man thong' front foot strap would work well for Free Winging?

I suppose I need to get proficient on the wing before I make this leap, but I'm always interested to hear others thoughts on the matter.
