Wingfoiling has got to be the ultimate irritation for prone surfers.  SUPs were bad enough for them, but I expect these things really cause them some angst, zipping in and out of the lineup and riding everything.

Wish I were younger, I would be all over wingfoiling; looks super cool.

You should be foiling your ass off on Lake Norman, then arriving at the beach a pro foiler. Guaranteed not to be skunked.

Love that video with Ralph

Well I found a Duotone wing today. I was looking in the wrong places.....kite shops.

I met a guy at the beach today and he tells me he has a Duotone. I say where did you find one. He tells me my local SUP shop has lots of them in all sizes. He had a 5m.

WTF.... >:(

I run over to the shop and they have 3 left, all small ones. I take a 3m. They tell me the rep told them itís a SUP sport and they are exclusive to SUP dealers.

The kite shops in town wonít be happy to hear that story.

Iím confused by what Iím seeing on the F-One. Is there a panel on each side of the center strut? Wouldnít it trap water?

If youíre lucky enough to have a setup that floats like that, then for sure, learn the water start strapless or with foot hooks.

Way too many kiters sprain the ankles learning to water start foils with straps.

The issue is this.....as soon as the foil starts to sink (from the board sideways on the water position) the wind pushes you down wind, the foil wing rolls under your butt and ankle gets tweaked.

In kiting, a setup that floats like this is key to easy water starts.

I canít tell you if this applies to wing surfing because nobody but you, has was one those dam things  >:(

Water starting a foil SUP with a kite, is dam near impossible for all the reasons youíve already discovered.

You wonít know what is required until you remove the pad. Some Chinese built board have some kind of glue that is rock hard and sands off. Others have the PSA that is much harder to get every bit of residue off.

Lots of chemicals and hard work  :D

Glad Iím in Florida....when the rest of you are snowboarding, Iíll finally be able to get a wing surfer   ;)

We were just talking about winter.  Baja?  DR?  ____?  :)

Barbados! 85 degrees, waves, wind, low cost.

Really....you all feel a need to rag on someone elseís idea of fun. Go away.

I plan to die with more toys than all of you.

I used the NSI stick straps for many years kitesurfing. They never failed me. Although they do use tiny screws that seize easy, so treat them as such. Tef-gel maybe.

Angled straps are good. Itís what happens to the front foot naturally when surfing strapless. It angles 45.

They ended up shipping to windsurf shops instead of kite shops!

For example, these guys have them in stock

I know a windsurf shop in Florida that got the Duotone, while the kite shop got none.
