Hi Dwight, I believe you have the 5.3 also, where have you put the harness for that size?  Thanks!

Bad news on gear shortage for wingers. Just saw Colas posted this about Gong.

they are deluged with orders, it is so insane they have to work overtime. They beat their weekly sales amount record last week, and they ship 1500 products per week (mostly wings, foils, boards) on average now. They had to hire 5 more people recently to cope with the ever-increasing activity.
Winging is taking off like crazy here in Europe, their Lemon and Flint foil boards are backordered till mid-July...
Containers of 600 wings are 95% pre-sold when they arrive...

To be fair, Axis will announce a full line of sizes, in several new styles, when stock is available. Youíre reading about insiders leaking info on prototypes they get to demo.

COVID has caused backlogs for everyone.

Lift have nothing on their web site about the new wings. Probably same issues as others.

Itís a real bummer, we are going through another season of gear shortage for wingers!

There are multiple problems we cannot solve. Wings have check valves. This backflow prevention makes getting an accurate reading near impossible.

Even expensive pressure gauges foul so easy. I have filter protection on my vacuum pump gauge and they still go bad after about a year. Just replaced another one on my vac pump. Kite pump gauges are worse.

Itís really just a wild ass guess with these gauges. Feel and years of kiting experience help.

A few wings have blown up here. Some brands are not using the same seam construction/sewing method on the center strut, that is used on the leading edge. That is a huge screw up. The center struts have blown on every wing Iíve seen fail. My buddy has had two center struts re-sewn that were showing a bulge, indicating Seam failure was coming soon.

These look great. I love that they did not go totally flat and maintained some arc. The arc will make them way more fun to surf.

Good news DJ, because I ordered a GoPro Hero 8 today, because I loved your video.  ;D

Wow, great camera angle. Looks like PVC pipe. Youíre tempting me to buy a GoPro with that video.

Did the camera weight add much challenge?

Cool web site.

Here is another manufacturer name I know..

Looks like Florida. Flkiter has probably ridden it. He is here today with the 1150 for me to try. He also brought me two more 390 tails. Iíve got 4 of them now. One to go with every front wing we own.

There are wild variations in speed based on the device used to measure. Iíve heard the app I use filters out speed spikes quite well.

Iíd love to see a thread all about speed measuring devices and accuracy. Otherwise Iím the slowest foiler on the planet. Iíve held pace with some windsurfers, so I think Iím going fast.

Iím right there with you on the fast wing search.

The last few days I turned the Dawn Patrol app on to monitor my speed. All my highest speeds were recorded going upwind. So weird. Never ran a speed app kite foiling. Anyone know if this is normal? Seems so weird not to hit higher speed on a broad reach.

Maybe I just need a tiny wing to make broad reaches faster than upwind.

Hey Bill,

This 6í0 x 29 x 120 liter sure looks like a possible wing board for you. If the photo is accurate, even the tracks look better located for winging, than SUP (farther back than a Kalama)
