Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Re: Foot pressure when foiling.
« Last post by Badger on August 08, 2022, 03:54:56 AM »
Hi Badger, I have an identical setup except (except for 475P rear wing) and am also starting out.

I started with the Axis base plate at the back of the tracks of the Naish board.  Wanted to move it back a bit more due to the same issues you mentioned so spoke to my local shop.  They gave me two longer screws and washers and I was able to move it back about 15mm using the next set of holes on the base plate.  This allowed me to stand more comfortably where the footstrap holes are on the board with fairly even foot pressure.

So the Axis / Naish combination is fine for me now.  For me a bit more practice seemed to help with foot placement / pitch / ride height.  Managed to clock 25km/h on the BSC1060 the other day... so something must be right  ;D.


Having the mast all the way back in the tracks was the key to attaining my first long flights, but I only kept it there for a few sessions. It was very back-foot heavy but it gave me a lot more control. Once I got used to flying the foil that way, I was then able to move the mast forward in increments to the KD balance point where my foot pressure was more equal.

Now, by further fine-tuning my foot placement, I'm finding that by moving the mast forward of the balance point and getting my back foot behind the mast, I can still have fairly equal foot pressure and good control. Moving the mast forward makes it a bit easier to get up on foil when underpowered.

The 1060 has been a great foil to learn on and is a great light wind foil. It goes fast in light winds but sometimes feels sluggish with too much lift in higher winds. I'm going to try the HPS 980 to see how that compares.

I googled this some time ago and cork can be  different qualities,ground coarser or finer, and they use different adhesives and different curing temps depending on use.So hardware store cork for construction may not work at all for us.

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / new Axis 1310 PNG foil
« Last post by headmount on August 07, 2022, 08:59:01 PM »
Has anyone tried this 1310  PNG foil?  51" span, 2080 sq cms area, 7.3" chord, AR 8.53

Obviously it's an U-2 or an albatross, depending which age you group you belong in.  Paddling with it might hit the foil.  Winging and dock starting? 

Some kid did a 17 min. dock start pump.  There's a video but it's irritating with fast forward and horrible soundtrack.  They shoulda shot it with a drone.  Anyway, it looks interesting but I wonder about the reality.  It is promoted with use with a high mod carbon mast.

I'm with PonoBill on this one.

I too have RSPRO cork hexagonal pads on my CJ Nelson 9'3" Parallax single fin (prone) longboard for surfing and it hasn't gotten slippery either.

I've had it on the board for one year.

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Re: 7m A series Glide
« Last post by VB_Foil on August 07, 2022, 06:52:38 PM »
Thanks for the review, VB_Foil.  I have a 5m A series Glide that I really like, and also am very happy with my 7m CWC for light winds (for me, an average of 10/11 mph wind with an Axis 1050 is the point where winging is fun on sound chop).

So if anyone can do a comparison of the 7m Glide and the 7 or 8 m CWC for lighter winds, I would really love to see it -- Thanks!

Yeah Andy! The 7M and 8M CWCs were on my radar before the 7M glide came out.  It would be great to see a comparison review.

I just got to test the low end limit. Rigged the HA 1325 and paddled out into a measly 5mph breeze hoping for a puff (it had been blowing for an hour before I got there around 12mph). The wing was barely staying up from the LE handle sitting on my board. After 10 minutes or so, I felt a bit of breeze in my ear and did a Stinkbug and up to my feet.  The 60L sank to my knees before I was able to pump and few times and get some speed on the board.  To my surprise I was able to get up in what must have been 7-10mph after 6-8 strong pumps. It was messy too, with wing tips dragging and all.  The damn floppy handles are a joke, as I was literally punching the strut with my back hand on the recoil.  I canít wait for the boom or carbon handles.

Once up I was home free. Comfortably cruising with the ability to do some power carves with wingtips out.  Iím still preferring to do Heineken gybes over standard gybes. Itís amazing how the wing will just come around, full of air and ready to keep trucking in the new tack. Standard gybes in that light air requires some coercion with the free hand and results in a moment of apprehension coupled with arm and leg pumps.  The racing gybe is another better alternative to the standard gybe. Toeside tacks felt amazing, although the carbon handles will make them so much cleaner.

25 minutes later, after running a few slalom laps along a string of crab pots in some stronger 14mph gusts, a botched heelside tack coincided with the dreaded drop of the wind. I was up river and the tide was flooding. Luckily my nice neighbor waved me in to his dock and shared a few cold ones with me as the sun set.   :D

I've had the RSPRO cork pads on my other Flying Dutchman wing board for over two years, and they've been great. No lifting, no slipperiness, super lightweight, great feel. Maybe there's a reason RSPRO is more expensive. And before anyone says "cork is cork", it's not.  There are all kinds of grades, from cheap crap made out of cork dust and glue to the real thing, to augmented versions of the real thing. I don't know what RSPRO uses, but it works fine. And lasts.

This is two-year-old RSPRO cork. My front foot is on the cork most of the time. It looks as pretty as the day I put it on the board, and the grip is excellent:
