Classifieds / Gong Large Pro front wing and 40 Surf stabilizer

One Large Pro (Curve) front wing and 40 Surf stab for sale.
Front wing is like new, the tail has a couple of minor cosmetic scratches as pictured.
$385 shipped conus for the combo, won't separate the set. They belong together  :)

Foil SUP / Mast position fore/aft on the fuselage. Care to speculate?
« on: February 05, 2021, 07:29:31 PM »
Finally getting around to modding and making a couple of fuses to use my Gong wings on my Axis masts.

Does anyone have any real world experience (or even care to speculate) how moving where the mast attaches to the fuse (fore or aft) might change the feel of a foil system? I.E. could you say that moving the mast back on the fuse could be equalized by moving the mast back (or foward) on the board? (Seems there's more to it). There are a number of variables meshing these two system and I'll probably just end up splitting the difference but, since I have the option it would be interesting to hear opinions.

They 'look' a bit better than the last series, simpler at least.
Caveat emptor


Half the time this guy appears to be gliding on nothing. The Hyper 150 is about a 7.6AR, the 190 about 7.8


Classifieds / Gong Pulse 5 Meter wing
« on: July 22, 2020, 10:07:25 AM »
Having recently picked up a Naish 5.3 to match my 3.6, I've decided to let the Gong Pulse 5M wing go. This is their latest version and has been used less than 10x. Probably I should just keep it as a spare but there's about 12 kites taking up that shelf space already (I'm not repeating that mistake  ::) ). The performance of the Pulse I've been very pleased with, I feel it has the best pumpability on the low end and feels more "windsurfing sail" like (more efficient) than the other two brands I've tried.
The wing has two professionally done repairs to the LE by Airtime and sports a new Airtime LE bladder which is much less likely to pop in the event of a LE tear (thus reusable). I feel the wing had a weak point where the batten meets the LE and these spots have now been significantly reinforced by Airtime, it is better than new! Comes with the battens of course and arguably the nicest bag in the industry. $375 net + shipping. PM me here or pick it up in Hood River 97031

One Gong Curve Pro Clear medium front wing for sale, new and unused. $295. If I could only choose one foil wing shape for the rest of my life, the Pro line would be it. Haven't tried this size but suspect it will be small for me except for kiting. Keeping the L/XL.
One Gong 55cm stab (regular finish), also new $80.

I'll cover any payment fees, you cover shipping or pick them up in Hood River, OR.

Go Foil V1.5 29.5Ē mast, V1.5 pedestal tail W/ 18W rear wing, Go Foil track adapter, V1 Iwa front wing, for sale as a package only. Includes oem mast and wing covers. A great chance to pick up V1.5 parts at a discount.

Mast has been used 6X now, hard to tell it from new, tail parts not much more than that. The Iwa and track adapter were left overs from my prior package but show little use, just a little paint loss on the tips of the IWA. Everything works superbly together, probably I will regret this moveÖ One of our most experienced wing foilers here still prefers to use an Iwa despite owning a new GL, I think itís arguably their best all around wing. Located in Oregon 97031. I have this listed in numerous venues thus this listing may end without notice.

Everything pictured EXCEPT the board is included in this sale for $1090. I will split shipping and any payment fees.

Very rarely will you see a 29.5" mast Go Foil package come up for sale, much less so with a genuine Go Foil Carbon/Titanium track adapter plate (W/ the proper M8 mounting screws and nuts). Basically everything you see pictured included.
29.5" Mast that IS V1.5 compatible (I checked)
M200 front wing (near perfect top surface and LE, some scratches bottom that have no effect, you'll make more)
Maliko tail wing
Mast cover
Tail cover
All screws pictured.

This would be a perfect package for learning Wingfoiling, downwind or SUP foiling, and I learned to kitefoil on it. At approximately 2000 cm2 it gets up on foil instantly and stays there with great stability.

Shipping only to the US for now. Send me your zip and I'll get you a quote, I have a UPS account.

Classifieds / Go Foil Maliko 280 Foil Wing, Gofoil M280 front wing only
« on: September 09, 2019, 12:26:08 PM »
One Go Foil Maliko 280 front wing only. Perfect for heavier folks and/or lighter conditions.
Little use, just some light scuffs and scratches to the paint and one tip is modestly scraped. You will likely make the other one match on your first session. These things seem to be indestructible, you could probably chop wood with it in an emergency. $20 flat shipping in the Conus, cost to AK, HI.

Trade for an Iwa front + a little cash depending on condition or a V1.5 29.5" mast with cash from me

Regional / Gorge treadmill wave workout anyone?
« on: June 08, 2011, 08:13:51 AM »
Guys I have been having a blast using this outrageous runoff on the Columbia to (I think) it's best advantage. The only thing that would improve it might be some company. Yesterday I parked at the white Salmon rivermouth and played for a few hours and got many of the best rides I've had to date (on the river at least). It was rolling clean 3-4', current is maybe 3.5-4 mph there so you can just sit down and be back upwind in no time, take another run. It was 8'+ two days ago and blowing 40+. Something about the combination of currents there is causing extremely clean waves, the Hatchery has been garbage by comparison. All this with That perfect windless rest area 100 yards away under the bridge.

Looks pretty good again today but I'm wiped out and have to go to PDX anyway. Tomorrow might hit 20 late, then Friday should be back on.

Anybody else want to play confused salmon? shoot me a PM or see you there.

Downwind and Racing / Remember the Gorge flood of 2011?
« on: June 06, 2011, 12:07:58 PM »
Guess that's what we'll be saying ten years from now. The runoff shows no signs of letting up anytime soon making downwinding a bit... strenuous (Downwind is into a 5mph current in places). It's back up almost to it's max flow as of yesterday;


That being said I've been having a blast paddling my surfski over by the White Salmon river mouth on some 20-25mph days, it's like class 3+ whitewater with big smooth waves (sometimes). I'm tempted to try my Bark Exp. just for fun but suspect I wouldn't last very long. Any one wants to give it a go I'd be game though, send me a PM. Too windy to not go kiting today though, looks like were in for a long stretch of westerlies so there should be many opportunities.

There is a current forecast graph about halfway down here;


If this is true it may be early July before the sandbar surfaces again...
