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?

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.
