I can't help thinking windsurfing foiling would be better......mind you i only have SUP foil gear.....

JB give it a go a tell me will you?

I must say that I didn't see any advantage to kitewings during my windsurfing days.

But now with SUP foiling, I would also like to try. Kitewings are less efficient than a vertical sail, but it is not an issue with the low drag of a foil. Plus the stability of the sail (the dihedral) needed to not have the control of an attached mast foot may very well be very helpful to balance on and lift the body to help the foil work.

Plus the technical advances of kite wings (inflatable "mats" and ribs), and this is something I would definitely like to try!

Knowing how fun windfoiling is downwind with a tiny sail and a big foil wing, I can imagine this could be even better, I am in.

I would like to see the video of him carrying the kite wing and supfoil board to the water in strong wind and negotiating the shore break!

Mine is leaving the factory today/tomorrow. I will be flying next week. There is a lot to take in, but your Naish Dealers will have full info on the WING-SURFER early May but also limited info NOW!

Important to know, this is not a replacement to Kiteboarding or Windsurfing! It is an addition to our quivers to even further open up riding.

Yes, it is a lot of fun and really really easy.

It opens up a whole new world of ocean riding that you never knew existed. Naish have been going easy on the marketing until their product is ready for commercial release. They've been working on this for years, and with over 2 decades of kite development and revolutionary materials of today have finally perfected the Naish Wing-Surfer that simply dwarf's the competition. But you haven't even seen 1/4 of what these wings can do. Prepare to be amazed! Think outside the square.

VIP - you can pre-order your now through your local Naish Australia Dealer. There is limited numbers that will be here in June, then more in July. But they are selling out fast!! If you want to be in the first deliveries, then get your deposit in now at you local dealer (first shipment already 2/3's sold out).

Stay tuned!

Ride safe,

JB

Got any details on price? (if already posted and I missed it, apologies)
Or is it:
"sign on the line for a real good time"
"if you have to ask you can't afford it"?

On his off-tack, although I doubt Robbie has such a thing. Similar to kiting on a surfboard, you can switch feet to always face the kite or wing.

Oh yeah. Why didn't I think of that. Can't change the wind angle. Haa!
Just shows what I know about wind surfing.

Here's a great vid (poor recording on my part) of Robby Naish answering some common questions about the WingSurfer

Important to note that Naish see this Naish in somewhat a different way to some of our competitors. Although majority of the marketing you are seeing is Foil Based, the Naish wing is far more than that.

We are roughly 85% sold through the first shipment that is ETA 1st June. I believe they will not last long, so if you're keen on one, speak with your local dealer and get a deposit down to secure yours now!



Enjoy,

Ride Safe,

JB

Still a total newby at this, but here's one of my first glides. Just a quick 1 min teaser I made for SM. Might make something up later of all the footage if I get the time.

enjoy



Limited supply in the first shipment, so get in touch with your local dealer ASAP and drop your deposit and reserve yours.

Ride safe,

JB

The bag is tiny, and the wing fits in easily and sinches up tight with the sinch straps on the sides. Max size out flat is about 50cm x 25cm, but it is smaller that this with the wing in and sinched up.





Tiny,

Here is the bag with the Wing-Surfer inside. As always I could not pack it down as well as they come, but there is still plenty of room in the bag, easy to get it in, then sinch up the sides. There is a pump holder on the side of the bag as well. Very neat and very compact!









More like 40 x 25cm

What are the chances you could haul up a tiny prone board/big wing with one of these?

Still wondering if you can carry a paddle while sailing? So far I think the 3 piece paddle in a back pack with the folded sail plus the pump on a free DWind return run. In my location I have got a few spots to launch, go up wind by sail into a harbour or entrance or sheltered beach to pack it in the pack. Then downwind back.
