Winging
« on: July 26, 2021, 07:20:02 AM »
I currently windfoil on an Exocet RF 81.    Could this board be used to learn to Wing on as well ?    Any thoughts !

Definitely possible, a mate is currently using the Slingshot Wizard with the hover glide foil. One disadvantage he is finding is that when in sub flying conditions before your standing eg during a lull or getting out to a wind line, the board tends to head off downwind.
We think this is probably due to the mast being mounted so far back. Once flying there is no issue.
