WING SURF/FOILING IS NOW A REAL SPORT
The latest craze to the wind powered sports world just took a huge leap in the past months with many of the major kite brands competing against each other to offer wings ,boards and foil set up with attributing features such as:
- Impressive stability and balance
- Easy planning and performances
- Huge wind range
- Incredible upwind abilities
- Fantastic jumping capabilities
- Smooth take-off
- Ease of turning
|WING SIZE||WIND RANGE|
*Recommended size and wind range is dependent on rider weight, ability and foil setup.
The larger sized wings are better suited to the lighter wind situations because it can harness more wind. In stronger winds, on the other hand, a smaller wing would be best as it has more surface area to enhance speed while being manageable to hold.
A 4m2 wing is advised for novices weighing 70kg or less, while a 5m2 wing is advised for riders weighing more than that. Starting with a wing that is too large can prove to be cumbersome.
