The 1300 is a great light wind foil, more low end than the 1060 with great glide. I do recommend it on a high modulus mast. It's not going to win any races for the size of it so I wouldn't take it out in high winds unless you want to use a 2.5 meter and have endless glides. I've also really like it for sup foiling, you can carve with a wing tip out of the water and keep riding. Putting the progressive 475 on it also helps with the turning and lets it fly at nice speed and pump easily.

For dock the short fuselage and crazy short in the waves. I cab get away with the 1310 on a short fuselage in the waves if I have the 475 rear but I'll lose the tighter turns that the crazy short gives.

I find I like the 475 progressive in the waves and the 460 flat off the dock.

I just got my 1310 and it's a ton of fun. Great sup foiling in small waves but can handle a lot of speed if the waves get bigger. On dock starts, it's a blast. More glide than the 1150. I'm still dialing in what rear works best for me, so far the 475 has been great.
The foil works great on the carbon. The 1310, is doable on a metal mast of you're a light rider. If you're heavy then you're flexing mast and loosing power and glide.

Get your speed up some, you might need to pump the foil a little bit so that you can get in front of the wing. Think to keep the wing at your back hip and then you can steer up wind as the wing pushes you from behind. You'll eventually be able to lean against the leading edge as you go up wind.

We're going to go do dock starts and then if the wind comes up, hit viento or event site

I'll be out there next week 20-27. What wing sizes is the norm this time of year? I was out there for awsi and was mostly 5's and 7's. Also how thick of a suit needed for a warm weather rider?

I'm on the 75 power carbon and waiting on the high modulus version. Better pump, more glide and higher up wind reaches with it so far. Also noticed my jumping has gotten higher. It's something that I didn't know I needed till I got it. In sup foiling I'm getting up faster on smaller waves and my pumping with glide has increased as well. In winging I've also noticed that I can go smaller foil with the increased stiffness.

I've seen the rear wing break from a jump and I've seen the fuse break off the mast. Plus I hate how they turn in jibes but that's a personal thing. It seems like you're sold on F1 tho so you should go for it. Not all foils work for everyone hence why they're so many out there

For your weight, I'd stay away from the F1. I have a buddy that's a team rider and about 150lbs, he's beaking stuff all the time and one of the schools I work with uses F1 foils, the students always have a longer time learning and the big guys suffer compared to those on my Axis stuff. Ask the big guys in your area what they use and you'll find what will work best for you.

I'm with Pono on getting the 7. The wing span is great and it'll have tons of low end especially paired with the 1150. I have an 8 also in my quiver which I can get out in below 5mph marginal wind by just pumping with the wing over head but the 8 is more like riding a canopy rather than a wing so a different technique is needed to start and turn. I teach with the 7 and it's been great for all sized riders.

The 325 progressive rear is amazing in the surf. Not great for winging but for prone it’s fast, pumps really well and carving is on another level for the rears.

« on: February 24, 2022, 10:43:07 AM »
I recently rode the 5 meter V2 strike and I felt like it was more of a refined version of the swing V2. I didn't like the strike in the 5 and smaller sizes but I did like the swing V2. I feel like the strike V2 is faster than the V1 and had wider handles. But wasn't a "oh wow, I have to dump my old wings for the one" reaction. It's a good wing and if you need new strikes or swings, it'll be a nice up grade. I would of liked to have had hard handles and some wing tips that don't catch on spins but I guess if it sells, don't change it.

Does the tail lift up when you're flagged out and going down wind? I'd love to find a wing that does that. The old ensis did it a little but now everything I try, the tail drops if it's light wind and ride fast in the turn.
