What's coming
« on: May 20, 2019, 05:40:49 AM »
We are starting to see some higher quality vids for this new gear.  Stoked to be able to what is actually going on. 

Here is a new one by Naish which shows some technique and light wind potential.

One from SPG which was deep in another thread.

This video shows it going ugly. The rider is an expert foiler, BTW. Where’s the 3m when you need it.

If I tried that, I might as well book ahead for my next shoulder surgery.

DW:  Was this his first time? 

I suspect Robby Naish has been out a few more times with his Willy Wonka contraption than this guy.  No matter what level you are at related sports this is new and you still have to put your time in and expect a few beatings.

Thansk for the videos Dwight.

The guy at Real looks like he is holding the wing with a really wide grip and also very far forward compared to the Niash videos.  I have not seen any instructionals on this yet.  Is there a difference in where you hold it. The further forward grip looks a little harder to handle along with also having the hands wider.  Also the Real guy looks like he is trying to muscle the wing rather than just hold it and direct it. I have no experience with these but I do want one. Just my observations and looking for pointers for when I get one.

I don’t live in NC anymore, so wasn’t there to know any more details. I know the riders Dad pretty well. He’s from a family of water sports experts. Kiters, windsurfer, foilers, so if he makes the first time in high winds look challenging, then it could be the same for most of us.

Roughly, two centuries ago, we winter folk (not me) had similar for speed skates.  Like cheezy, chrome dinette sets 'all that's old is new again'.

I really liked they touched the light wind/protected water in the Naish video since that is where I would probably
spend most of my time with a rig like that, but how realistic is this from a beginner stand point?
in progress...

One thing I noticed was in the earlier videos, probably because of their windsurfing background, they were switching feet on the tack and jibes on the foil. That added a very complicated move. In all of these videos they are not switching feet. It's more like front side / back side sailing. 
It's not overhead to me!

What are your thoughts on the SPG dual strut design vs Naish's single strut? Has anyone had a chance to try either one?

The dude getting overpowered on the Naish wing would probably be a happy camper in about two weeks. Even with my limited experience I see two things wrong--he isn't getting the foil up high, and he's sheeting like the wing is a sail.

TD,  This photo was taken 94 years ago, but I would bet there were people doing similar before that as there was no Netflicks or NASCAR.  The couple I remember seeing were one-handed, where the forearm and fist locked in like a medieval shield, requiring a stop and change of tack.   (notice - branding already established - the Chinese were on it.)
