I don't want to you to think that going larger than the Large will stop the carving of the foil, but imagine it like a sliding scale. . Bigger wings a re good for pumping and smaller wings a good for carving at speed

I agree with this but want to add that BIG Wings can carve at slow speeds. This summer on the East Coast of the US I was out foiling when no one else was out in small stuff. When the big wings are going slower ~ 10 mph you can definitely whip them around. After watching some of the Hawaiians banging the whitewater I decided to try it. Voila it worked.

Maybe more revealing was watching my daughter who weighs 54 kilos / 118 lbs being able to crank turns on the Maliko 200 "Big Wing" with no problem at slow speeds. If she can do it Grown Men have no excuse

Guys would the Maliko 280 would be useful for my 65 kg in your opinion ? We have really bad windy waves conditions. I was planing to get one and put a Kai rear wing on it in order to catch these ankle size waves. Any opinion ?

Nice work man!

A dedicated list to help compare all the wings on the market.

I've updated a few Slingy wings and added a column for Speed Range & Wing Weight

I just updated a few of the items for Naish.

Also I froze the top row to make it a little easier to scroll and read the data, hope you don't mind.
