My foiling experience is limited to 5 waves, up for 2 to 3 seconds and then crashing out. Low speed moto gp style. Last wave was a cracker 20 m on wing. Got to beach, checked rig and last portion of fusalage is bent and rear wing is missing.
Pretty exy first session.

Regardless of damage a 20m run in first 5 waves is pretty impressive what foil were you on.

Anyone got a spare rear wing going cheap?

I think it's fair to say you have ridden or driven that hard into the bottom , contact JB here on Seabreeze for a wing replacement he should sell them as spare parts and the fuselage should straighten up OK.

Thanks mate, do have a few bruises but nothing hard enough to break me or rig. So I guess it has hit the bottom. Board is a little heavy after conversion.
Need to get behind a boat for a few hours, can see it would be easy to hurt yourself, had gath hat and full wetsuit. Won't be going near any other surfers as we already have plenty sup haters around here.

Hey,

I think we're mates in broken wings...

I was caught in the shorebreak while windfoiling.

Also bolts of the big wing are no perfect straight.

Quite far away from home... Living in Europe.
Thanks.

My local dealer offered me a free replacement under warranty. Great for him, I didn't ask for it.

Good luck in your search, mate.
