Headed there in later August for the first time.

Will I be screwed if my smallest wing is a 3m?

Looks like DW is riding 3 and 2m wings, but I think you like to be on the small side?

Last August, I used a wing smaller than 3 meters in 4 out of 14 sessions.  That would be days where avg is at least 24-25 mph.   If you are not here for very long, an option might be renting as needed.  Go Foil has partnered with Northwave and are renting wings but I don't know what their selection or availability is like. 

It has been a strange Spring and early Summer but it finally feels like "July" is here.

I purchased this with the ambition to learn to prone foil but other activities keep getting in the way.

Lift carbon surf foil board.  5'10" x 22" x 50 L. Shaped by Sean Ordonez.  Like new condition.  Used exactly once.  Complete with Lift bag with internal pocket.   Asking $450.  Local pickup in Hood River area only. 

Update.  Mel is gybing on both sides, getting foiling foot switches down and looking for waves.

I agree that the neck injury business is a canard perpetuated by those with an anti-helmet bias.  I did a deep dive into the medical literature once and there is a study showing that helmets DO NOT increase neck injuries.

Classifieds / Ensis V2 6 meter wing. Asking $510

Wing is in very good condition with no repair history.  Complete with repair kit, valve adapter, bag and F-one leash (my preferred leash).

waist reel leash

Small foils for sure.

My 2 meter wing is too big above 35 kts

Any opinions on CWC vs Ensis V2 6 meter low end?

The 6 CWC feels like it has more low end than last year's 6 meter swing and more high end than last year's 5 meter swing. With the older swings I would need to go to a bigger foil to get the same low end that I get now by just using the 6 strike. I highly recommend big guys and people in light wind areas to get one. Plus the narrower wing span works well for tricks. My only gripe about it is the handles, I think a set of ensis style ones would really improve the performance of the wing.

Nick, what is your opinion on the 6 CWC vs a 6 Ensis as far as low end?
