Interesting reading the comments on the 980 v1 vs v2.
When I used the v1 a couple of times it was a wild machine!

Now my 880 and 1050 are super smooth and toned down mostly because I am on short fuselage and coupled with the 420 I feel zero twitchyness.


I have to say that the 1050 is still tricky to get up in light winds.... It really needs wing power and good technique. It stalls quickly if you don't pump the board quickly once it lifts off in marginal conditions. Once up it races up to 13knots like a drag car. Crazy stuff in only 12/13knots wind with a 6m.

I only discovered yesterday when browsing the axis website that the BSC wings in smaller sizes fit on the black fuse and on bigger sizes on the red fuse. And that is going to cause a lot of confusion with people buying the wrong combo....  :-\

I am curious to know whether the big BSC 1060 and 1160 will be quicker than the slow 1020. Hope so!

The BSC are both faster than the 1020. Same great low end stall for pumping but better speed for surf and winging

Nice video DW.  I can see why you like the Ensis wing so much -- looks stable and good upwind.  What was the wind strength?  To me it looked like 10 to 15 knots (in the gusts).

What size surf you figure a 1010 can handle? It's great f winging but I'm getting blasted out of the water in the surf in it.

For me. the big trick for using the 1010 and 1150 in the surf is shimming--I get the incidence angle under 2 degrees. I haven't done much with the 1010 lately, but the 1150 comes up like butter at 1.5 degrees, goes like a banshee, and glides forever.

Today
Interesting board you have..
Good for the HPS foils that need some more board speed to get them flying?

What are the specs of that board and how much do you weigh?

I'm always amazed at how calm the water is in so many of those winging spots when the winds blowing twice as hard+ than we get when the surface is a mixed up mess, white capping, and what looks like storm surging whitewater anywhere you'd be able to head out in.

Now I get why folks could get into it, and find it so fun. Because that looks like a whole lotta fun when you're not having to battling numerous set of 3' whitewater trying to drag a board, foil, and wingding 100+ yards out to get to a point to then try to standup to learn in.

Nice vid DW.

In person, itís whitecapping hard. The GoPro makes it look like no wind.

The board is 4í11 x 26.5 x 95 liters with a straight tail. No bevel. This improves the low end of a foil like the HPS series. Any board works, this board just increases the working range.

DW -- I think you were on the Ensis 5.2 wing in your video?  If so, it must have a pretty big wind range.  The handles look like the best non-boom type that I've seen.

It does have a big wind range. But look at how gusty the wind is in that chart. That plays a factor. Rocket upwind in lower wind, then when it nukes, surf down wind. Playing the wind to my advantage. The handles are really good. Yes, itís a 5.2m.

Have you also tried BSC wings?
I suppose it would also improve the low end of the BSC series?
So that you can get up with a smaller foil and or a smaller wing.

iíve ridden the BCS-1060

The BCS is super easy to ride. Any board works well.

How many of you besides Dwight are riding the carbon mast?

I'm still on the fence as to whether it's a worthy upgrade for minor weight savings and a nicer feel of the carbon foil.
Apparently it's not recommended for wings wider than 1050 span
