Re: Windsurf Foiling Discussion

Hey FOLO! I think the Starboard, Sabfoil/Moses 790 or Slingshot Phantasm PFI 730 or Infinity 76 will work well for you. Seeing as you have a track system the Moses or Slingshot will be compatible without a track adapter. I splurged and went for the Phantasm 103W Carbon Mast with PFI 730 wing. For my...

Re: KT Wing Air

Hey Tsawwassen, those look great. The industry is moving very quickly with their R&D. Apparently everyone in Maui is moving towards a more efficient shape, here is a leaked image from Ho'okipa of the latest technology: I hear tweezer and ULR have pre-ordered images.jpeg :wink: see you at Jericho...

Ultimate Winter Gloves

Super impressed with these gloves I got at Home Depot for about $10. I've had Dakine mitts for years and invariably rip them off in frustration when my forearms fatigue. These won't be as warm but caused me almost zero forearm fatigue. I think these are the same https://www.homedepot.ca/product/firm...

Squamish / Nexen marine access consultation – now!!

It would be much appreciated if some island windsports enthusiasts could help provide feedback to the District of Squamish in order to preserve our windsports access. For those of you that don't know they started demolishing the spit this fall and there is no access to the Squamish Windsports Societ...

New standard equipment

If you guys really want to take it to the next level you gotta look the part. It's the new boardshorts over wetsuit but for winging. Maybe Kai Lenny will come out with a new line of Fanny Packs for boosting. Sick Duotone colors too.

fuse

The Phantasm also overlaps the wing/fuselage significantly. I just noticed it says the Moses wings will fit on it as well! Now I'm getting excited.

Slingshot

I know grantmac is a huge Slingshot fan :wink: so I thought I would mention the Hoverglide fuselage can be switched around (C position) to get the infinity 76 wing further forward. I usually run the 84 in C position so would have to rely on tracks all the way forward for that wing. Would be nice to ...

volume

Well the sail is a 2.8 so I would guess the 90L version. If you scroll down on this page there is a great comparison of the older 125L vs the new 114L: https://bigwinds.com/products/2021-slingshot-wizard-v3-windsurf-foil-board/ I'm hoping the 130L will have enough volume for my fat ass, I'll probabl...
