This is cool! Go ride the swell without your wing and circle back to it. Anyone here at that stage??

This is the perfect diy project for a former kiter. Old kite leash, and cut up those 15 year old kites to make the parachute, bridle for the parachute lines. I've also had success with a dollar store wrist/ankle weight attached to the leash, then just tuck that in your belt. The real challenge was holding the wing with a loose sup paddle and throwing the wing and weight without dropping the paddle. I'd recommend attaching this type of device to the front handle.

Also good to see those guys on Sab, Kt, Lift and Ocean Rodeo. No more cheesy cabrinha plugs.

So.............. All the initial hype about a wing floating docilely beside or behind you out of the way and out of mind while you are free to surf the wave .......... is another case of 'alternate truth' :?: :!: :roll: :D :D :D :D :D :D

Fun to see people pushing the envelope on whats possible. These videos are awesome!

For those guys it's just out of boredom, riding the same blue waves in strong wave day in and day out. That also looks like a diy parachute leash. First time I've seen someone launch it high which makes sense. Need a good RBFC chase crew incase it ever doesn't work. Or a cheap old v1 wing for doing it solo in 30kn canal beach. I knew those strikes would come in handy.
