Hi all, relatively new to using a wing with SUP, I dont foil etc but just playing around at the moment, curious to know how others have found the wing especially going upwind and any tips? works well downwind but struggle sometimes?

What board are you using and how heavy are you?

For an inflatable it will be tough without a centrefin. Rails are too thick to easily sink the windward rail which is what you'd do on a regular SUP.
Duotone driftstopper is a simple fix to get some windward traction and something to pivot the board on. Works well.
Cheers,
Sam.

Use the tip of the wing on the nose of the board to steer it
