WING FOILING / WING SURFING
WHAT IS IT, HOW DO WE DO IT AND WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO IT?

Wing Foiling is a relatively new sport, and refers to riding a board with a hydrofoil attached to the bottom, while generating power through the use of a handheld inflatable wing.

Best suggestion is to only buy gear from an experienced rider-owner. Always ask where and how often the sales person does this sport. Buy from reputable owner-dealers who will teach you how to use your gear and support you after sales with repairs as well. Avoid any place that says it's easy, or sends you elsewhere for support. They are most likely just trying to get a sale. There is a reason kites and wings are not sold in Walmart ;) or sporting goods stores. Both Kiteboarding and Wingfoiling are "Specialty Sports" in many ways like Skydiving, Paragliding and Hangliding.

Many times simply searching for the right info online can be time consuming and confusing. There is nothing like one on one feed back. See the PBK Pro Advice Page for personal help if needed.

Wing Surfing is also relatively new and very much related to Wing Foiling, but is done without the hydrofoil on the board. Typically you will need a larger board or Stand-up Paddleboard to Wing Surf.

The sensation of gliding through the water on a hydrofoil is incredible... it's as if you're floating on air. It's almost completely silent, and it's an extremely fantastic and liberating experience that almost anyone can have.




There are many factors to consider when choosing your Wing(s), Board, and Foil(s), and we recommend that you contact us for assistance.

Wing surfing is often, but not always, a prerequisite for learning to Wing Foil. It's all about having a good time, regardless of where you're standing!

Learning to use the wing on a larger board that supports your weight in the water is considerably easier. Do you own a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) that isn't getting much use? Dust off that lovely board, add a SUPWinder, grab a wing, and you're ready to go!

Many people will wish to add a challenge to their wing by adding a foil board and foil... this may be both a challenge and a life-changing experience. The sensation of riding a hydrofoil through the water is
incredible.

Much more than a wing! Join the Fun of Wingfoiling & Wingsurfing in Canada!

There are no sensations similar to those of the wing foil, of being in direct connection with the wing and of flying above the water by exploiting the energy provided by the sea through the foil. The wing you are going to use is essential to make the most of these sensations.

For the release of the STRIKE V.2, we dare to reveal some of our design secrets to better explain its design to you.

Adaptive Wing Design: Controlled Power, Performance and Comfort
Pre Loaded Canopy: the unique tension of our wings allows to maintain the ideal shape
Center of pull perfectly balanced between your two arms in all conditions
Legendary lightness retained, essential for freeflying
Dynamic stability for controlled navigation
Fast Forward, unprecedented forward traction for better heading and less effort
Extended range of use that ensures performance and control in all your sessions

Adaptive Wing Design

As the industry moves towards an all-rigid trend, we have developed the unique Adaptive Wing Design concept offering the perfect balance between performance and comfort. Indeed, the stiffer the wing, the more uncomfortable and difficult it will be to hold in high beach, especially without a harness. The wings must therefore be able to absorb this power, like the flexing of the mast and the opening of the leech in windsurfing or the border-shock in kiteboarding.

For this new STRIKE V.2, the Adaptive Wing Design makes it possible to transform each gust or gust into positive energy and to perfectly control traction. The STRIKE is designed to adapt completely in navigation thanks to a control of its deformations which makes it possible to preserve a powerful form in all the range of use. It releases power when there is too much and takes the right shape for a given wind without degrading the quality of the profile, while maintaining unprecedented stability.

To achieve this result, we worked on the entire diameter of the leading edge and modified the shape of the central strut to add diameter. Its cut becomes segmented, allowing better control of its curve and its deformations. In addition, the twist of the wing has been revised offering more twist.

Materials :

After three years of intensive research on the design of wings and 25 years of designing kites, the field of possibilities of “classic” materials (Dacron and Polyester) remains enormous. They are perfectly suited to the challenge of exploring the world of Adaptive Wing Design.

Our experience and the feedback on our previous collections have enabled us to better analyze the reinforcement and structure needs of a wing. The STRIKE V.2 will be even stronger and more durable.

Pre Loaded Canopy:

From the beginning, our wings have had a unique tension that allows them to maintain the ideal shape during navigation. This tension can be compared to that of a windsurfing rig which stretches out before going sailing. Our wings are therefore "pre-tensioned" and designed to adjust in action. The interesting effect is that the ideal tension created at the trailing edge when sailing ensures much better performance upwind and in light winds.

Center of Pull:
The balance of the center of pull is crucial for a successful kite. Throughout our development, we attach great importance to its stability so that you can maintain the balance of traction on your two arms regardless of the angle of attack and the strength of the wind. The wing keeps the same balance and requires little pressure adjustment between the front or back hand. The wing is stable and guarantees maximum comfort throughout your session.

The wing is your engine and should pull you forward, not sideways. Since our first SWING, this has been one of the unequaled qualities of our wings. The traction of the STRIKE V.2 is improved with an impressive advantage in strong winds, because you only have to shock to feel the pressure decrease and the traction go forward.

TECHNICAL DETAILS
Freeride:

With its constant traction, control, light weight and stability, it is perfect for freeriding, whatever your level. Its power and pumping are its strengths for planing and exploiting the low range.

New range of use and its advantages:

We work a lot on the range of use of our wings to guarantee a very good planing start with the necessary performance for light wind. We want to push each surface as far as possible in the high range.

What are the interests?

Being able to use as few wings as possible to cover your wind range while still sailing comfortably when the wind drops or picks up during your session.
It sometimes takes two wings from the competition to cover the range of use of a single STRIKE.
Benefiting from comfort and performance in the high range while retaining surface area offers more lift and softer landings in jumps.
Plan earlier while reducing the volume and size of your board.
New surfaces V.2:

Handles:

Right from the start, we chose small-diameter, rectangular-shaped grips, with flatter parts that fit snugly into your knuckles. You don't hold on to the handles; you keep control at your fingertips effortlessly. We have again for this new STRIKE opted for flexibility, which allows you to maintain the perfect angle between the Wing and your arms. Indeed, our wing being extremely stable, rigid handles were not necessary. With our softer, lighter, more comfortable and well-designed handles, you won't hurt yourself or damage your Wing when storing it.

Weight - Control - Stability:

Building on the success of the STRIKE V.1, we have improved all its qualities.

First of all, the V.2 keeps its incomparable ultra light weight, pleasant in all phases of flight. Stability is improved by respecting the profile and the center of traction of the wing when sailing. The V.2 has a constant and homogeneous traction.
It offers a blend of precise handling and smooth control while working for you thanks to the Adaptive Wing Design.

Fabric tensions and profile distribution are improved.

A new distribution of the spinnaker panels makes it possible to better distribute the tensions by ideally orienting the straight grain of the fabric for better control, but also for more durability.
The infill is kept to a minimum to provide profile control without adding weight and leaving a bit of vision.

This improvement in the wing's stability in flight allows you to keep better control of your foil and your trajectories whatever your level.
The STRIKE V.2 lets itself be forgotten during freeflys and allows you to concentrate on your surfs or the swell.

This is an advantage upwind to improve heading, and it offers great sailing comfort allowing you to push the limits of the high range with less effort.
In the low range, the traction is constant and requires no adjustment. Just stay lined and the kite works for you.
