Classifieds / Switch surf wing 6m v1 - $450
« on: November 22, 2021, 07:37:39 AM »
I have a Switch surf wing that needs to go. I had fun using it to learn how to wing foil but it really is too big for me. Plenty of low end grunt and light for its size. Really easy water starts. It is in great condition - no tears, no repairs, and seams are tight. I just replaced the leading edge bladder and have a new spare for the strut. Wing comes with a wrist leash and backpack. I'm in Wilmington, NC. Local pickup only please. $450.

I ended up going to Canadian hole. There were about 10 wing foilers there and a bunch of windsurfers. It is a pretty small area but do-able. The north boundary is pretty evident at low tide. Wind was out of the SW gusting into the mid 20s. Two kiters decided to land their kites just north of the parking lot and got lots of stink eye from the windsurfers.

Thanks. We are staying in Waves. We were there in July and I kited north of that bridge just south of Jockey's Ridge at the public beach. It was fun but super shallow.

I've heard Canadian Hole is supposed to be deep enough for foiling. Can anyone verify this? Are there any other decent locations in the sound that are easy to access? I know Real has their "foil garden" but is it accessible if you aren't staying there? Thanks.

My first post here, so Hello! Growing up camping, we were taught to stuff our sleeping bags any which way back into their sacks rather than rolling them up neatly. It seems rolling tends to compact the insulating material inside which could affect its performance. With my wing, I tend to do the same - ball it up at the beach and then dry it flat when I get home by draping it over something so air gets underneath.
