Just looking for some advice on the best way to fold and pack the wings after a session . . . once they have dried.

At the moment, I start from each wingtip folding parallel to the centre strut and then fold three times from the tip of the strut to the centre of the LE

I saw a vid of Balz that does it differently by folding wing in half then folding from each wingtip folding parallel to the centre strut.

How are you guys doing it?

I have read a lot of material on the forum regarding wrist leashes.

I have found that the ENSIS wrist leash (with extension part for 4.5 and 5.2) gets in my way when doing tacks on one particular side and so was looking for a better solution.

I found a video that Dwight did where he modified the creatures of leisure coil leash.

Can I ask if when it comes to wrist leashes, people have generally opted for a coil leash?

We have been having winds where I have been very powered with the 3.5 Ensis so I decided to swap out the 483 stabiliser with the 421 stabiliser to see what difference it would make. (note I do not like the 483 for kitefoiling but it seemed to match up nicely with the W1100 for learning to wing).

It seems to loosen up the ride and allows the W1100 to turn easier. Feels easier to get the pumping action but not sure I was getting any more forward drive but then I am new to this and suck at pumping.

Was wondering if anyone else has any experience to share in this area.

Our water surface is wind blown swells in a large bay so depends on tides, wind strength, how long it has been blowing and also the wind direction as to how good and rideable the swells get.
