Just a quick note of you have a Duotone Wing and the Boom starts to get a bit wiggly when inflated you may need to tighten the boom connector lines by tying an overhand knot carefully in a place where it doesn't need to pass through the slots in the boom head.

gzasinets, if you have any problem getting a replacement, PM me. I have two aluminum booms that I won't be using--I robbed the boom ends from them. In fact, just send me your postal address and I'll send you the clip from one.

Riding the 5m and 4m Duotones for about 8 weeks. We just donít get enough 3m days to justify buying that size. I guess the advantages and disadvantages of this version 1 have been pretty well established.

Had my 4m out the other day in seriously overpowered conditions (at least for wimpy me at 78 kg) of about 22-37 mph. Had the wing adjusted to its most flat high wind setting. Doing everything was  way more challenging but overall I was amazed I could ďmostlyĒ handle the gusts at all given my limited time riding overpowered. 

Biggest frustration was dealing with the wing  after a fall. The porpoising goes crazy when just held by the leash in those higher winds. I pull it in fast to grab the front handle thinking the leash will just  explode quickly if Iím not holding the wing directly.  Anyway, not quite ready to switch to the crowd favorite (F-One) figuring the V2 of all these wings will be out soon enough.

Working on toeside to heelside upwind foil transitions. Thankfully I ride a really flat spot in strong north winds (doesnít even look that strong in the pic, but it is!), otherwise Iíd be totally out of control. 

Would love to see Ken come up with a flatter more right-side-up-stable V2 of this wing. Then all would be right with the world😀
