The high aspect wings are supposed to be hard to ride in waves. Kane de Wilde says he doesn't use his albatross in the surf that much. He uses the Signature Stealth in waves.

yeh unifoil are doing smaller high aspect wings that seem to be manageable in the surf compared to the 210, mizofernando has a clip of him surfing the 170 hyper on his insta.

they are doing a 150 stealth too for the smaller guys, thats what cliff recommended for my weight.

I've figured out I just want to be up on foil as long as possible, I'm addicted to the glide.

A friend of mine that has just about every foil got the Albatross said it was a lot different than anything he's ridden.

Naish has the hi aspect 2000 wing, but waiting to see how folks compare it to the competition.

A mate of mine looked into getting some Unifoil gear but the shipping (to Oz) made it non-vaible, so he went with Armstrong.

I've listend to these podcasts a couple of times now & tried pumping my 900 axis using Zane's discription "like a horse trotting" technique, it worked!

Good work sozz

They really are a gold mine, more emphasis on prone stuff too unlike most of the forums.

yeh that technique worked on the takuma when I could get it right, you watch kdmaui etc they just pop pop pop up and down instead of the racing forward full swoop action, went back on my 1250 gong yesterday, couldn’t pump that at all ha, did a 4 wave link on the takuma last week so it shows how big a part the wing plays.

Definitely need to listen to em all a few times to soak in the froth and the info.
