I started counting and lost track after 50 jibes. 😁 I had this personal goal of being on foil for over an hour and previously to the last run fell at 58 minutes and 59 minutes 😂.

I used the Kalama E3 6’4” x 23” (love this board), 90 cm aluminum mast, short red fuselage, and 1300/375.

Wing- F one 6 m CWC (with harness). Wind was 12-16 mphs.

Stayed up on foil for over an hour 22 minutes.

Holy crap.  That is the dream.

It was!! Came in from it being dark!

I have the 1150/460-390-500 and the 1099/375. Bought the 1300 maybe a month ago and paired it with the 375 (red shirt fuselage) and it is my current favorite set up. Winds using an 8 m to 2.8 m it is solid. That said, it is about surfing waves and cruising. Stayed up on foil for over an hour 22 minutes. The 1300 is my new go to. ⚡️⚡️⚡️
My board is the Kalama E3 6’4” x 23”. Solid!! Ocean sup foil and and wing.

I am finding the 1099/375 on an ultra short fuselage and 90 cm mast is my favorite winging set up in most all the conditions I ride in. Handles light to heavy wind. Sup foiled the same set up on the North Shore of Oahu.
I even prefer it in light wind over the 1150/390 or 460. Paired with the 8 m CWC F one… lights out!!

Winds were 10-16 today. The 1099 is unbelievable. Hit over 20 mphs in 12-16 mph wind. The ultra short fuselage and 375 rear cranks turns. In fact, I was getting the tip out of the water during jibes. Amazing!!

Hello! We will be taking a trip to the North Shore of Oahu and have been there several times but have not winged it sup foil. I am aware of P. Point to sup foil although very busy when the lessons start.

Looking for more info on Mokuleia Beach to wing? Any tips… where to go out, reef spots, other considerations?

Thanks!

Ben

 I have the 1150/460 & 390. Have the 1099/375 ultrashort. Light wind sessions at 9 mph and once up flies!
Went to Arlington on the Gorge Sunday. Light winds. Then slowly picked up to 15-16 with rollers.
I might have completed my quiver with the 1099 & 1150. That said, thought I would need the 1150 (can dock start with it) in the light winds. After my last 2 sessions… 1099… might be the answer.

Slogged the first bit. Learned the 1099 gets up different than the 1150. The 1150 I can hammer away like a dock start while the 1099 needs longer pumps to glide (if that makes sense). Once gliding in the water, use your back hand to lightly pump up on foil. Once up be careful… I flew all the way to Roosevelt in super light wind and then stopped. Had to slog back. It flies in hardly any wind!!

I'm going to do a motorcycle Idaho BDR ride this summer, and I plan to haul my KTM 390 in my truck to eliminate the boring interstate parts. I'll have to toss the wing foil gear in as well--two birds with one long drive.

Let me know, it will be a blast!!

Took the 1099/375 on a ultra short fuselage and 90 cm mast to the lake. In comparison, I use a 1150/460 or 390 on a short fuselage and 90 cm mast up to this point. It takes off way different and I pumped it too hard a few times. Then got up and flew. Then I flew across the lake until the wind died. Got some foot switches in as well. I use a 6 m F One CWC wing.

I was impressed with the stability and control as this can move fast and turn as well. After the session I looked at the map and it was only blowing 9 mph’s!?!?  The thing glides so well I was up in wind I usually couldn’t continue on. Although, when the wind died I was a mile from the launch and had to wait for a gust. Amazing!!

Got up to 16.7 mph’s in mild wind. If you are looking for a wing that has a huge wind range, this might be it.

Sam, Please do not foil at Seaside or Short Sands. You will get in trouble.

I surf out of Pacific City(further south) and Lincoln City. *Pacific City main breaks are NOT OK to foil and you would also get into trouble there, unless nobody is out.

I Stand up Foil and wing ding when I can.

If you want to make the drive and the conditions are right we can get some Foiling or winging where nobody will be surfing. It literally would just be the two (or three) of us on our own waves.

Let me know. Its a bit of a hike but I would meet you and we could get setup somewhere.

Waves on Saturday look good. Wind on Sunday. Is it possible to wing off of Cannon Beach proper?

Red,

Are you around for the long weekend? We plan on heading there on Friday from Spokane… maybe even try and get a wing session on the way.

Red,

We debated between Pacific City and CB. Went CB because there is power and showers available for our bus/van. I have zero interest in ticking off locals. We will have SUP, foil sups, and wings ready to roll!! Might be super fun to meet up and foil. Can’t wait to see what this 1099/375 has to offer. 😉
