I've been hearing lots of good things about this wing -- fast, good upwind and a big wind range.  Only three wings in the range -- 4.2, 5.5 and a 7.  New light and strong strut material.  Originally called the "race" but then North realized calling anything "Race" was the kiss of death so they changed the name to "Mode".

Pricing (reasonably priced) is going to up the ante among the elite wings. Here's a fairly detailed review:

Check out the 37 minute mark of Wingman's video:

Really short, thick with a flat bottom.  (Note the red and orange coloured "boomed" Slingshot wing in the video -- new wing coming?)

Here we go -- are people really this dumb?  Heaven help us if this is true and other people in other countries get similar ideas.

Where I live (Canada) e-foils are not legal (yet).  This might be a nice alternative.  It could be fun on a windless day to get some time in on the water.

I don't think it will take long before there is a professional racing discipline for winging with specialized equipment and money events.  I'm not sure if this is good or bad for the overall sport -- bound to happen I guess.

Interesting interview with someone who is both an enthusiast and a manufacturer about the present state of winging and where it's headed.

Here's an interesting interview about wings, foils and the state of the industry.

Here's a look at JP's new X-Winger wing boards -- short with high volume.  They look really nice.

Here's a video of Alan Cadiz promoting the attributes of the new Duotone Slick:

O.K. there has been a lot of hype over this wing due to the strength and lightness of the material.  Two different wings on offer at two different prices.

Here's the full interview -- lots of winging history and what may be coming in the near future.

If "winging" is just a fad it's a pretty big one.  I saw this short segment of an interview with Wyatt Miller posted on another forum so I thought some here might be interested about how their sport is taking off -- here's the clip.
