So been prone foiling for a bit now on my axis 750 wing and still trying to link waves have come close a few times, but thinking i want another larger wing to build the quiver. Was looking at the new high aspect wings but not sure which would be best for me @ 90kg ?

Try the S series 900.

If you're proning, the 900 is great with a short fuselage. Are you on the standard fuselage?

I'm 73 kg, I use the 900 which is great. I used to have the 750 but I don't use it anymore, the 900 is faster, easier for steep take off and pump better. But for your size I wonder if the 1000 wouldn't be better, I guess it depends the waves you want to ride (really small I would go 1000, average wave you can go with the 900).

I have the standard fuselage atm, does the short fuselage make a big difference. Yeah that's why i was contemplating the 1000, as i seen allot of small guys to well on the 900

The 90 is the one don't worry about the 100 for the prone . You also want the ultra short fuse as well , the new light weight 2 piece one is out now. The ultra short fuse really loosens up the 90 but you can just use the short . You also want the 400 rear or even the 370. Less is best for speed and manoeuvrability. You might like the 100 at the start on the prone but once you try the 90 after the 100 you probably won't go back.

Re the 90 v 100 on the prone , the 90 is actually faster and easier to turn and pumps just as well . The 100 gives better starts on the Sup & DW or wing ding but does not have the same top end capabilities of the 90. The 101 proto is on the water and again it is more designed at slower and easier starts for DW & Winging , it's a more refined version of the 1020 with easy lift but handles a lot more speed. Still not in production yet but in the works.

I just got a 370 stab to go with my 900, really loosens things up & still pumps like a demon
Also a mate of mine who's about 80kg just got a 100 for small days (already has the 90) & loves them both.

I just bought the 1000 wing and the Ultra short. Jumping from the 102 to the 1000 my pumping has increased significantly. If you were doing doing wing racing and wanted the highest top end would you use the standard fuselage or ultra short? Haven't tested difference yet but interested in anyone's thoughts. Also sounds like a need to get the 900 too for extra speed!

Axis have 3 fuselage . Standard which is really long and getting phased out , the short which is same as NP and other brands and the ultra short which is more for prone .So for the wing Foil short is the one. You also want the 400 rear wing to go with the 1000 & 900 the 440 provides too much lift . There is also a 370 & 340 , the smaller rear wings really loosen up those wide front wings and increase speed . Less is best but you need to get used to it as you loose stability at first but grow into it , same with the ultra short Fuse. They shorten your pumping arc which feels funky at first but when you settle into it you get a ton more drive. Once your ability to start gets better you'll find the 900 is the one but you'll still need the 100 on those low wind days.

Thanks for the tips I really appreciate it. Look forward to testing different combos
