Re: Newbie to Wing-Thing

Bobson, I have a Slingwing V2 6.2 m. It is in good shape and I don't know if I will ever really use it.

Re: Anyone driving Campbell River to Victoria

And if you could stop in Nanaimo and pick up an inflatable wing board ( deflated in bag) , I would appreciate that as well, and chip in!

Re: 2021 Nitinaht road reports

The road is very good. Traffic has also calmed to normal flow now that Highway 4 is (partially) open. I had to laugh at the "toilets 400m ahead" sign just before the Nitinaht T intersection. Who wants to pee in a stinky, smelly, hot plastic cubicle when there is acres of forest around!

Re: 2021 Nitinaht road reports

The Cameron Lake Bluff fire is diverting all traffic via the Youbou / NN turnoff route and that will make for some interesting traffic on the road. It is actually closed now for vehicle recovery:

Re: Windsurf Foiling Discussion

Thanks guys. I have the original H2 as well and it sits on a shelf - Infinity 76 is far superior. The smaller H5 advantage is smaller wing for higher wind - the H2 gets / got squirrely in any kind of wind.

Re: Windsurf Foiling Discussion

I did an interesting and productive experiment over the weekend. I have been running the infinity 76 on my Roberts Frankenfoilboard (6') and have it pretty dialed in. On the weekend I put the H5 (I think that is it) front wing on the short kite fuselage (essentially the kitefoil setup). I put it in ...

Re: Pumping questions

One windfoiler to another .... The bigger front wing will make a big difference. I use my Infinity 76 (1,534) for almost everything now, but when I use the 84 (2,026) there is much more low end grunt. If you go up to a 1500 plus wing you will immediately have an easier time getting up and staying up...

Ideal length ( 10 or 12) as and eg. 3. Width - 6 or 7! 4. single or dual wheels. 5. Other features, such as vent etc...

When you guys ditch your Slingshot Alu foil systems - give me a call. I am always looking to pick up spare parts.

I like the simplicity and versatility of it - I can use the same system for windfoil and kitefoil.

And I don't jump - apparently the alu masts will bend.
