Thanks for the info Greg, do you think you can downwind the 900?

I'd be curious to hear from everyone on here about which wing they'd buy if they had to start over from scratch knowing what they know now. When considering price, available wings(or almost available), reviews, etc what would you purchase and why?



I had to alter my fuselage to fit my GL. The chord is about 2 inches shorter so you have to cut that much off the tip. All my other wings still fit fine.

Yes I guess it is made for DW, not for surfing. How would you compared to a GL same size if you have tried ?

Yes you can DW with the 900 but you need to be good already and it needs enought wind.

Yes, thats Junya, known him since mid 90's. He rides Axis but not the rig i borrowed. I rode Alikas prone 5'2" with a Axis 100 wing. His board is 50L as he's a big boy, wonder how it woulda gone on my 38L 4'10?

Evan from Axis foil will be there with demo foil, Damian Brawner will be there with 52foico boards to show. For those who haven't foiled Sano it might a good day to come !



Greg is this still going down? How long will you guys be down there? I'd definitely like to check this out.

Link doesn't work. How many people showed up? The surfline cam showed a lot of people out at old mans. I don't think it shows where you foilers go though.

Well the good thing is at Sano dogpatch, it is pretty much a foil zone, only a couples supers others than that it is all about foiling, so this is perfect.

that looked like a lot of fun. I foiled there for almost 4 hours the day before, so tired after that,
