First time using the big 7.2 Naish wing.
« on: October 12, 2020, 11:19:24 AM »
The wind was gusting around 8-12 knots with lots of big holes of nothing.

great video.  Thanks!

So, as one who is about to take the dive into foiling I'm educating myself.  That's a big wing.  What did you think?  What's your size and under what conditions would you use it?
Santa Barbara, CA

Infinity Blackfish 14'
King's 14'
Naish Glide 14' (2012)
SupSports Hammer 8'11
Starboard WidePoint 10'5

Thanks.. Iím 6í4Ē and  about 220 lbs.. I liked it but itís probably a bit overkill for most people.. Smaller wings are always better.

I think if youíre a bigger guy looking for a bit more grunt out of your wing or your local conditions are often very light this wing would be great but I think most people would find the 6m a better option being a little easier to handle and offer a bigger wind range.

Holy buckets that thing looks bigger than the Gong 9M. It doesn't look like any Naish I've seen.
Foote 10'4X34", SIC 17.5 V1 hollow and an EPS one in Hood River. Foote 9'0" x 31", L41 8'8", 18' Speedboard, etc. etc.
