Nice, board, wing and that mysterious foil.
Is smik going to release a wing or is this a promo or a teaser?

...and that mysterious foil.

Good eye!  That looks like the Robert Teriitehau branded foil:


He breaches the tips quite often without crashing, has me wondering if it's the design or his advanced strapped riding skills?
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.

Hi,

There are two sides to the industry is growing new brands etc. 

But what about the new Products form companies like Fone /  Duotone / SS ....  are about to launch for the Upcoming summer.  I think i saw Kenn winner riding a proto wing with Strudt and no bar and 1/2 beaten.

Taken from https://www.wingsurfmag.it/wingsurfmag-wingweek-20/ via Google Translate:

"The Gong Pulse is a very rigid wing which favors sailing performance, especially upwind, and lift in jumps. In our opinion, much more interesting for our commercials, especially in the Summer, is the Gong Wing Superpower , also based on a rather rigid but deeper profile and therefore able to maximize pumping and still offer considerable power in marginal conditions . It is no coincidence that it will be available, starting from next February, in only two sizes: 6 and 9 (you read correctly, NINE m2!)"

Gong Catch 5'3"
on Naish foils (1250 & 1650).

I remember reading on the Gong forum that they were using harnesses on the more powerful next gen wings during development... Didn't specify whether it was the Pulse and Superpower but given the quick turn around in their development programme it would be probable that it was.

Wonder what more rigid wings is going to do to the weight and handling...

Yeah, I wanna see more of that TR foil clay  :)

From what I see gong is the only company pushing and testing all sorts of design and released in the market instantly as others keep under wrapped and slow and probably because their too big and too much internal red tape.

I've discovered if I'm going fast enough that breaches aren't crashes, though it's a long way from 100 percent. Might be the overpowered wing helping too. When I do crash it's a total yardsale though.

also, interesting wing in the background color Orange and red. Again, looks like a sandwich design between fone swing and other wide cord wings
