Just a prone guy here, no handwing for me. But, I'd say of those options. 860 front, 460 (so you have the option to chop it) or 390 rear.

The 860 and 910 are very close. 910 has more pump, 860 has more turn.

The 760 is my favorite front wing by far. Hard not to have a 900 in my quiver though.

I shortened my 90CM mast to about 82 today. It was too draggy and too deep for surfing at SanO. Unfortunately I think I missed prime time while I was doing the shortening, which took about five times as long as it would have in my shop. When I got back out it was kind of dying--I got a few nice little rides, but the swell was dropping fast and the tide was super low, so I kept hitting grass in mid-ride. Or more accurate, at the middle of the planned ride but the end of actual ride.

Still, a fun day. Nice meeting all the foilers. Dave Daum showed up, always good to see Dave, and he was killing it on the foil. I'd like to get a board better for foil surfing from him--my flying dutchman is great for wingfoiling, but it wasn't made to SUP foil, so it feels very sticky--I have to get deep into the wave to get up. Once I'm up I'm fine, but I'm paddling like a lunatic to get every wave. Unfortunately he's slammed, as is I guess pretty much every board maker right now.

I also ran into Chris Kohner. Always fun to see Chris, such a great guy. Nice day.

Thanks again guys for all the great input. Paddlur those condiitions ur in look similar to mine, one of my spots gets even more messy.

So overall Iíve been advised 920/910/860 for my bigger wing and the 760 for the smaller one and 440/460/390 stab combinations.

Just need to make my mind up and make a decision.🤣

Cheers

Mike
Mike for the conditions your describing at your home spot Iíd steer away from a HA wings IMO my 2cents better off with a 760,860 or 920,now if more flat water range yeah HA might be nice for winging weíre talking  here,not prone or sup different ball game

So 16 or 19 mm mast? And does anyone know then the new fuselage is released?

If you're prone surfing and your biggest wing will be the 900/910 you can use the 16mm mast. It's what I use and my main wing is the 760, but I put the 900 on for when I want to pump.

If you're SUP or you plan on using bigger wings then use the 19mm mast.

Oh wait, you're kiting or winging aren't you? You'll probably be jumping at some point. Use the 19mm mast.

If anyone is in the Cocoa Beach area tomorrow, I'll be doing a demo again at Kelly park. I have the new 980/1050 black series and 1300 with someone else that's coming soon. I'll try to do one Saturday also. I'll also have the ensis wings.

Are you able to share some specs on these foils yet?

Sexy! I am guessing that the thickness has been reduced and that thing hauls ass for a 1m foil. Feverishly checking the Axis site for releases.

dang was hoping for a big bro to the 860 going fast been there done that kite foiling in the beginning,I wanna good wave wing that can stay in the pocket more not outrun the sweet spot sections of waves,donít mind going a bit slower in the waves as they create there own speed energy.disappointing they donít come out with a big bro to the 860 for us wave riders as HA wings so far in decent waves for me at least ainít happening much prefer 920-820-860 style wings for waves,love my 1150 for smaller flatter winging but for decent wave riding trying to emulate some of my surfing to foil moves the HA ainít cutting it so far for me,and seems like HA wings is the hype for going fast 2-3 to ones but letís get back to the basics wave riding seems like the new HA is the end all no R&D for a big bro to the 860 is long over due,early Xmas present Axis a new 960 please🙏
