OMG.....this got my attention. Neil Pryde foils are still my all time favorite carving foils. Add in some pump and glide and dreams may come true.



This is really interesting, can't wait to get more informations about this.

I think the 1150 is going to suck toads for winging. I could be wrong, but it seems like it will turn even worse than the 1010--which takes a fair amount of effort to turn. The longer a high aspect wing is, the weirder it will be in a turn. If the turn is tight enough the wingtip on the inside of the turn is barely moving and the one on the outside is going fast. They don't really bank, they just roll on their side. My turns on the 1010 are so slow I probably look like I was planning on downwinding and changed my mind.
Bill all due respect hope your wrong as Iím already $800 in the hole on the 1150 waiting for it arrive to compliment my 1020 for a bit more speed and higher end range,not sure what I was thinking really as you know Iím not the biggest fan of HA wings but all Iíve tried are the GF GL series and maybe with some stroke of luck I might like the Axisís HA version,now you got me thinking about the 1000 Lol

I could very well be totally wrong. I had a very good afternoon on my 1010. I finally figured out how to turn it. You have to turn it like you mean it and stay in it. Ignore the wing during the turn and twist the board into the turn instead of trying to gentle it through. I just started doing some extreme zig-zags, trying to get a better feel for it, and on one of my zigs, I pushed it really hard while I was pretty high up and it did a pretty credible 180. I immediatly fell, of course, but it started the experimentation.

That would be a highly effective way for me to destroy my foils...

Kane is super irritating--first person I ever saw doing a beach start, and for a long time the only person I saw doing them regularly. I eventually realized he's doing a completely different sport than I am, and I just watch in awe.

Well finally got to try my 1150 winging and to my surprise I actually really enjoyed it adapted to rather quickly for HA wing,itís certainly not replacing my 1020 which I love.I found it quite bit faster which is kinda nice but being a longtime foiler going fast is not my goal at all in anymore but sometimes nice to get a little better clip winging than the 1020/500 I used it with a 440 and found it to turn pretty well for such a lg wingspan
I used It in flat water today in 15-25mph comes up on foil real easy with my 225 lbs,with bit better range than the 1020, and the pumpability is a nice perk too great glide!what I really like is the 1150 when hooked in goes up wind really well covered a lot of ground today digging that.One thing I did observe before even riding waves is this will be itís weak spot for me,much rather ride the 1020 in the waves but overall for large riders on flat water or minimal swell days definitely going to come in handy for me anyways too each his own ofcoarse,but it really surpassed my expectations for a HA wing as they certainly have not been my favorite by any means but pretty stoked on the 1150 definitely has a niche in my winging quiver
