What sizes of foil wings?

For the experienced

In the Curve range: highly maneuverable wings, fast and efficient even at low speed:

  • The S-T : less than 65kg and a very good level in normal waves and less than 80kg in big waves.
  • The M : less than 65kg in normal waves and less than 85kg in bigger waves.
  • The M-T : less than 70kg in normal waves and less than 95kg in bigger waves.
  • The L : less than 75kg in normal waves and more than 85kg in bigger waves.
  • The L-T : less than 85kg in normal waves and more than 90kg in the bigger waves.
  • The XL-S : from 75 to 90kg in normal waves
  • The XL : from 80 to 95kg in normal waves.
  • The XL-T : more than 90kg in normal waves.
  • The XXL : pumping and soft waves for all sizes.

The Curve T front wings sit between each Curve, offering more ratio and therefore speed and performance, halfway between a Curve and a Fluid.

In the Fluid range: radical wings: fast and manoeuvrable:

  • The S : it’s getting very small. Perfect for tow-in.
  • The MS : it’s a tiny wing for the pros, the lightweight and tow-in. The best in terms of speed / handling combo because it remains easy.
  • The M : less than 65kg in mellow waves and less than 75kg in waves with size.
  • The L-S : less than 70kg in normal waves and less than 95kg in waves with size.
  • The L : less than 75kg in normal waves and more than 85kg in waves with size.
  • The XL-S : less than 85kg in normal waves and more than 90kg in waves with size.
  • The XL : from 80 to 95kg in normal waves.
  • The XXL-S : more than 90kg in normal waves or for light ones in soft waves.
  • The XXL : pumping and soft waves for all sizes.

The Fluid S front wings sit between each Fluid offering more lift and ease, halfway between a Curve and a Fluid.

In the Fluid T range :

  • The S-T, it’s very small. Perfect for tow-in or in punchy waves.
  • The M-T, it’s a small wing for good level foilers, the lightweight or tow-in. It is very stable and the speed is insane.
  • The L-T, it is suitable for medium sized riders who want a large wing that is fast and maneuverable. The pumping / handling compromise is ideal for fit foilers.
  • The XL-T, it’s a very large wing which is suitable for lightweight people who want a very fast performance wing to connect a lot of waves on the small days, or for big guys who want a fast and very maneuverable wing. The pumping / handling compromise is great for strong and energetic foilers.
  • The XXL-T, it’s a very, very tall, slender wing and a pumping machine. It’s a super efficient wing in surfing due to its great finesse, and it is a treat in very soft waves. The benchmark for beachstarts !!! with its close to zero camber and incredible lift. And it remains manoeuvrable, especially when you see the multiple alley oops Malo can do on one wave.

In the Veloce range: high performance wings :

  • The XS-T : less than 55kg in punchy waves and less than 75kg in waves with size or for tow-in.
  • The S-T : less than 60kg in punchy waves and less than 85kg in waves with size or for tow-in.
  • The M : less than 65kg in normal waves and less than 85kg in bigger waves.
  • The M-T : less than 70kg in normal waves and less than 95kg in bigger waves.
  •  The L : less than 75kg in normal waves and more than 85kg in bigger waves.
  • The L-T : less than 85kg in normal waves and more than 90kg in bigger waves.
  • The XL : from 80 to 95kg in normal waves.
  • The XL-T : more than 90kg in normal waves.
  • The XXL : pumping and soft waves for all sizes.

The Veloce T front wings sit between each Veloce offering more glide and control.

The size of the front wing determines the speed/lift ratio. The smaller the wing, the faster you will go. You’ll have more pop and will be more radical, but also less comfortable at low speed.

Understanding front wing sizes

“I designed our foil wings naming them S M L XL etc … so that everyone can easily find their way around.

You have to see it as follows : after progressing on a Curve L, you might want to evolve on a Fluid for example. Well, the size you need for the Fluid would be L again.
Indeed, it’s the change of program that is judged: you go from a versatile and easy surfer wing, to a faster and very manoeuvrable wing. But your weight remains the same, so does your spot, and the wind range in which you use it too.

The right size for you in one model is therefore the size that is right for you in all GONG models.

That being said, you probably also want a light wind or a strong wind front wing. The variation in available power will require you to adjust the size of the wing of your foil. (It is not an absolute requirement by the way.) In this case, you want another size, M or XL for example.

But remember that I have scaled all the wings on a single equivalence grid. An L is an L.

You will tell me yes but the Fluid L is much smaller than the X-Over L !!! It’s true and that’s precisely my job: to estimate exactly your progress when you decide to switch from one to the other and to calibrate the sizes so that you feel like in slippers with your new wing in a new program. You go from an athletic beginner to a radical carver, it is logical that the necessary surface for your performances will drop considerably. And I am the one doing the math to adjust the ranges. ” L’Ours.
