Get a DW board and you can jump all day long with no worry of breaking it. I try to nose the board down on landings.

That 1150 set up will be a game changer for you. Soon you get the jibes and even tacks.

If you're going to wing it, ultra short is great but if you're going to kite it then I'd recommend the short fuselage.

Anyone else using the HPS700 here ? I use mine for kite foiling mostly and managed one short wing session with it. Even though it's more of a mid-aspect wing, it's an absolute JOY for both disciplines. It's so efficient, fast and loose. Does not glide anything like 880/980/1050 which is expected. Looking forward to my next high wind wing sessions with it  8)

700 is one of my favorites to use. Just not always fast enough swell for it for me. Really good low end on it and stability is so smooth and high speeds. I ride it ultra short fuselage with 370 rear shimmed.

I drilled and tapped out one of those to an M8 for a friend. Hasn't had an issue since

I just couldn't resist.

I use the 1020 on a short fuselage with 400 rear for my beginners and then they can add a 1000 front when they get good and want to go fast.
Another option is the 1060, same great low end but can go faster. Plus you can switch the front wing out for a 660 or 680 and kite it.

You'll be over or in front of the mast depending on the wind and foil. You'll feel it out. Trying to start toe side can also get you on foil easily since it'll get you to go more down wind which builds up speed and you'll foil. You have to go down wind to get to speed onto foil. If you try to go up wind too soon then you never get enough speed to get onto foil. Keep at it, it's worth the struggle. Also try the second handle on the strut for more power.

A trick I use for my students to learn switch, start with your feet in more of a sup stance next to each other. When you pull the wing to your chest, pump your feet together. As you start to lift off the water, just bring your foot that will be the leading foot only 6 inches forward. So your heal of the leading foot will be about across from the toes of the rear foot. You can ride up wind like this, I find when people learn that they try to get into a surf stance and it hinders their balance.

Eventually you'll find a sport on the board where it's comfortable to ride with your feet next to each other and this will become the location to stand at when switching feet.

Going to have to be one hell of an amazing wing for those prices. As for wings in the surf, I'm so used to having to get my wings repaired that when I get a tear in a wing now, it's just another day. Just a matter of when, not if.

The BSC are both faster than the 1020. Same great low end stall for pumping but better speed for surf and winging

I have the 910 which I love and covers a huge range for me, Iím 77 kg. I have been thinking of the  PNG1010 or the Broad Spectrum1060 for the lighter end of my range and when the winds a bit inconsistent. I also donít want to buy the black series gear as Iíve only had my Axis set up a couple of months. So what dya think?

Donít really want to go as big as the 1150 as I had the Moses W1100 which I found too big.

Cheers

Mike

The 1150 is way more responsive than the Moses but, the 1060 will carve better with the down turned tips. if you were picking just one wing then I would say go 1010 but  to add to your 910 then you can't go wrong with 1060 or 1150.

While I was up visiting the Cocoa Beach crew, my buddy Rush shot a few vids on quick reviews of the different wings and random stuff so I'll post them as he edits them.

Any feedback or critique, I always like to hear. These are just quick vids and I'm sure I missed some info but trying to keep it short and informative.

If winging is your main objective, the 1050 is the way to go. For winging 1050/930 are my main set ups and then when it nukes, the 700.

1050 is my favorite for sup right now but a big jump from the 920. The 1060 is the step up from the 920 which has lower stall rate, easier to use.
