2021 Starboard Foil X 125 board - $999

My almost new Foil X 125 board in Wood Sandwich construction (190CM X 67CM). I bought it just before deciding to Wing and now hooked on Winging I need to buy a 'real' Wing board instead of trying to make my Windfoil boards work for Winging. My loss is your gain. I purchased this board 2 months ago f...

Re: How the Wing-Thing is going.....

Thanks for the suggestions. They both look fun although I'm not sure how to ride a bike so the bike-foil might not be the greatest. I'm going to continue to Wang but just on my big board as I felt like I was close to jibing on the big board. I'll hold off Wanging :) on the small board for awhile as ...

How the Wing-Thing is going.....

Okay, I've been 'Winging' a few times now, not enough wind sometimes which was a bit frustrating but which has allowed me to confirm that can stay upwind, get back to where I started and learn to schlog-jibe. I have been using a 6.2m Wing which feels powerful enough to get up on foil in 13-14kts wit...

Re: Newbie to Wing-Thing

Hey Nanmoo (and others), thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. I currently use a 95cm and 115cm fuse for WindFoiling. With my tuttle box stuck at the back of the board and not able to move it forward, I thought the longer fuse(115cm) that has the front foil set further forward would help ...

Newbie to Wing-Thing

Hey there Windfolks, it's time for me to come out of the Wing closet. I'm Wing-Curious. Okay, there it is. My "I'm never gonna do it" is just all talk. So, now that I'm out..... I'm going to need a Wing to practice with and probably a thicker wetsuit cause from what it looks like, "Yo...

Re: Friday the 13th Fun

Okay, so that was a great video of 'Drunken Monkey' foiling. hahahaha!! It makes me want to get a GoPro to re-live the TOW because afterwards it's usually just a blur of Wings going by. Nice Work H-Rock!!
