Description

Program:

High performance with an uncompromising shape.

Presentation:

The Lemon is both extreme and harmonious. One could say that everything “falls into place” on this Board as its shape instinctively meets our needs.

A relatively thin nose to save weight and reduce inertia in curves and pumping. A square tail pinched by a winger that limits the touchdowns. And all the concentrated volume under your feet with up to 120L in a 5’2! However, the harmony of the shape really strikes on land, and on the water, it is a revelation.

In Wing, it is a new shape that delivers extreme performance with its thin tips around a maximal compacted shape. It’s like a freestyle micro Board. Ultra-handy, it nevertheless keeps a comfortable volume that will ensure in the light but also in trick landings and capricious winds without going through the waterstart issue.

In flight, the handling is impressive because the length is reduced to a minimum. A very pronounced kicktail and facets on the rails allow you to fly serenely without being afraid of touchdowns or unexpected hits on the chop or in tight curves. It can be thrown around in all directions in the turns. Take-off is also facilitated by these crucial points in the shape of the Lemon.

In surfing, she is so impressive that she rediscovers her Foil. It’s lively and fluid at the same time, aggressive and reassuring… The Lemon allows curves and moves that no other Board can accept so easily. In long, fast waves, it’s pure carving, frankly impressive.

The Wing multi-position strap inserts and the Us Rail Boxes for Foil attachment allow a multitude of adjustments, and to quickly find the ideal position in Wing.

Developed 100% for the Wing, in the SUP we will like this extreme compactness which will favor tight trajectories, changes of stance and especially when pumping. No more limits, but beware of the rowing and waiting which are technical. And strapless only 😉

High performance without the disadvantages, in SUP as well as in Wing.

These Boards are equipped with an innovative technology called FSP Pro for the best possible dynamics. The gain in performance is striking. As is the gain in strength with a Full Carbon Sandwich on both sides and rails. The resistance to bending is phenomenal and your EPS foam is fully protected by a High-Density PVC Foam Shell. Everything covered with a layer of 3K Carbon on top and a light grey brush. Strong, light and resolutely top of the range.

Ideal Waves:

  • Size: from a small swell that borders to a man’s size.
  • Power: it gives it’s best in soft waves.
  • Type: it goes everywhere, even in the chop and wind, but obviously prefers the glassy, especially with a Paddle.

Shape

  • Rocker: relatively flat except for the tail where the big kicker avoids touchdowns in the chop and when pumping.
  • Rails: steeply angled facets to avoid touchdowns and linking tight turns.
  • Volume: very generous for size for an easy board.
  • Outline: ultra-compact with a winger to lighten the surface of the tail.
  • Tail: large square tail, for stability when paddling and facilitate take off.
  • Nose: round point nose.

Instructions

Innovation is at the core of our Boards

Technology FSP PRO SUP :

  • 3D Shape on modeling software.
  • Preshape by numerical control for total reliability.
  • Shape control by traditional templates, finishing off the last mm 100% by hand.
  • 100% Epoxy board and EPS Foam Blank: solid and lightweight.
  • Deck, hull, and rails in Vacuumed PVC Sandwich: incomparable strength and incredible dynamism.
  • Deck: full PVC/Fiberglass and Carbon Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC Foam core and 1 layer of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz Carbon fiber, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
  • Hull: integral PVC/Fiberglass and Carbon Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC Foam core and 1 layer of 6oz carbon fiber, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
  • Specific Foil reinforcements: high-density PVC block housing the two US Rail Boxes. Three layers of Carbon cover the Boxes. Laminated PVC slats connect the reinforcement to the deck for maximum durability.
  • Rails: the PVC Sandwich structure completely covers the rails: increased structural strength, very good shock resistance (paddle strokes).
  • Carry Handle integrated into the PVC sandwich top: limits settling, avoid breakage in the surroundings.
  • Hot coat Integrated Tinted Resin: nobility of the process, weight reduction and solidity of the finish.
  • Matt custom finish, hand-made, for weight reduction and better glide.

The FSP Pro Technology is easily repairable when new in case of Dings or accidents. The PVC Foam of the Sandwich is waterproof and prevents water from entering on everyday shocks.

This technology offers, at an affordable price for Carbon, the incomparable strength/lightness ratio of a full vacuum PVC sandwich.

Buying guide

For Whom?

You must have a sufficient skill level:

Either you have a background in Windsurfing, which helps a lot to handle the Wing.

Or you know how to fly a Foil incredibly well.

Or you have a significant number of hours of Wing flying.

Either way, the Lemon is demanding.

With bigger volumes it is easy, but if you take a volume adapted to your weight, kneeling in the chop will not be easy. So, you also need to be in good physical condition to be agile.

This is clearly the Board for anyone who wants to go for the maximum potential of the wing, whatever the spot and the program.

 

For What?

The Lemon is the nimblest Board with a Wing. All the useful material on the Board is between your feet and above the Foil. It’s hyper-responsive and playful. It really feels great to have everything right at your fingertips. The control at high speed and in turns is fantastic.

Ideal for going fast, perfect for surfing and jumping, this is the 100% high performance Board.

 

What Size?

The Lemon is the ultimate Wing Board.

You can gain enough volume to float, in the order of your weight + 10 = volume.

Example: I weigh 80kg + 10 = 90L to float. This means that with a 5’0 I’ll be alright, provided I have a good wing level.

You can also under-liter it because the Lemon is wide enough to be stable. So, if you have a great level and want maximum responsiveness, you can switch to negative volumes. Up to your weight – 10 = volume you can go on your knees while leaning the Wing on the water. Below this volume you will have to do waterstarts while sinking the Board: it’s very technical, very physical, and you lose the lower half of your wind range. With each fall, you have to start all over again… Not very fun, and a very questionable performance gain.

In SUPfoil, you must absolutely have a positive volume balance. Your weight plus the Board’s weight must be less than the Board’s volume.

 

Quiver Partners?

The Lemon is self-sufficient on a Wing. There is no need to add another Board.

If you are greedy, a possible addition to your Wing is to have another Lemon for strong winds.

In this case, you can have a Lemon in your size, for buoyancy. And another one two sizes smaller.

And in this case, you can then have a little Lemon for strong wind and a buoyant Flint for light because it takes off earlier.

But this is ultra-luxury…

The Lemon is made for a very advanced Wing, and will be perfect with the Kitefoil to perform under 10 knots. The Wing is not at its best under 10 knots. A Catch with a 10m2 Strutless and a set of smaller, fiery Foil Wings: the best Quiver of almost nothing to add.

And when there is really nothing, your Quiver will suffer from the absence of a Surfboard or two. Whether it’s classic or SUP surfing, you’ll need to continue your adventures in windless waves.

And don’t forget the Surf Foil. It’s the magic combo with the Wing. When one doesn’t work, the other is awesome. Because even on ultra-flat you can work the dock starts. You will have a physical condition of a god!!

The Wings are the same, you will need a shorter Mast.

 

What Foil Wings?

In general, we recommend the same assembly as in SurFoil.

Beginners will have the fastest progression with an XL Front Wing (whatever their size between 50kg and 100kg) and a 45cm Surf Stab.

If you are shy, start with a Classic XL Wing.

If you are talented, start with an XL Pro Clear Wing.

For the Tenderfoots:

In the Classic range: super easy and efficient Front Wings for low speeds:

  • M for 50kg -> 65kg and all wind strengths.
  • L for 65kg -> 75kg and all wind strengths.
  • XL for 75kg -> 100kg and all wind strengths.
  • XXL for the 100kg -> 120kg and wind less than 15 knots.

 

For the Pros:

In the Pro Clear range (ex Pro 2019): high performance Front Wings and 5 knots faster than the Classic:

  • M for the 50kg -> 75kg and wind over 15 knots.
  • L for 65kg -> 85kg and wind over 15 knots.
  • XL for the 75kg -> 100kg and all wind strengths, or for the lightweights in light wind.
  • XXL for the 100kg -> 120kg and wind less than 15 knots.

The size of the Front Wing determines the speed/port ratio. The smaller the Front Wing, the faster you will go but it will be uncomfortable at low speeds.

The Stabs play a major role. They determine the stability of the Foil and help the lift, but at the expense of the maximum speed of the Foil.

Surf Stabs are slower than Kite Stabs, but are much more buoyant, and therefore effective at low speeds.

 

Which Foil Mast?

Except when launching, you will have everything to gain with a long Mast.

More length = more margin = easier = more performance.

In contrast to Kitefoiling, with a wing you don’t have much opposition to it because it pulls gently. So, you don’t put a lot of wind angle to the Mast. So, mastering a big Mast with a Wing is not a problem.

And as the Boards used are much bigger than in Kitesurfing, the inertia is more important. So, your Foil is less squirrely. Everything is more mellow. So, don’t be afraid of a long Mast.

In the chop, in the transitions, in the soft, a long Mast will be ten times more pleasant.

Of course, the must is the Monobloc 100. Absolutely magical. But the aluminum 90 is great too.

 

Foil Positioning?

For GONG Foils, place the Top Plate at the rear third of the US rails.

The further you move it forward, the more it raises the Board. The further you move it backwards, the more the nose of the Board pearls.

Be careful not to move it too far forward. We often tend not to let the rear foot work, especially when we come from Kitefoil. However, moving the Foil back a little will force more weight on the back foot and gives a more harmonious attitude and reduces effort.

 

How long should my Paddle be?

If you want to use the Lemon in SUPfoil, you will need a Paddle that’s between your actual height and -10cm.

 

Which Leash?

Take a 6′ of 7mm minimum diameter.

Check its condition before each session and change it every year. It’s your life jacket.

 

Strap or Strapless?

Riding strapless is sexy because it makes you feel free. But quite honestly you’ll have less performance…

So, it’s up to you to see if sensation prevails over performance. On a Lemon, we’re clearly going to miss 90% of its potential without straps.

With straps, you’ll have much more control and much less risk of having the Foil flipping under your feet. In the waves, it’s obvious, you gain a lot with straps. You can recuperate from some crazy situations just by pulling up your feet.

Put your straps in a central position (3rd hole) for the front, and the same goes for the back strap if you’re still riding that one.

If you want to be able to get the back foot out for transitions and surfing, put the back strap on the first hole.

Included equipments

  • 2 Us box ready to plug a foil equipped with a top plate system.
  • 6 x 5-hole footstrap inserts to optimize your position.
  • 3 x GONG footstrap symmetric large light (screws included).
  • 3D Function Pad 5 mm: “Intelligent” deck coating concieved to deliver a different feeling under foot to differentiate zones with comfort and total adherence.
  • Leash plug Concrete Fixed at the tail to never lose your board.
  • Integrated central Carry Handle on the board deck.
  • Vent Screw.

Livraison

Availability:

The dates of availability of all our products are written on each product page, in the size and colour of the product concerned.

These dates are valid at the moment you consult the site and/or place an order. It is possible that this product may be ordered a few seconds after your consultation. It then becomes unavailable. If you have placed an order, this change does not concern you: the product you order is still available on the date indicated at the time of your order.

We sell several thousand products per week. The stocks are therefore very evolutionary. But our management always shows you the real availability live.

If it’s available online: it’s available 😉

 

Pre-order:

Some articles are proposed in pre-order during their routing to our premises. You can buy this article which will arrive at our place in a few weeks. This method avoids the fair to grab upon receipt of the lot and the disappointed ones who would not order within the hour.

Upon receipt, we will ship it to you as a regular order.

The times indicated on the pre-orders are 95% reliable. First of all, because we only pre-sell finished products that are arriving to us after Customs, and therefore shipped right after. And also, because we add decent margins with concern to the dates announced by the shipping companies or railways.

However, a Worker Strike, a breakdown, an overbooking, can unfortunately happen. In the case of a delay, you will be notified by email (check your spam). It is generally less than a week and totally independent of our good will.

As soon as we receive the container in La Baule, we ship your order within three working days. Then the carrier takes over: delivery time and tracking numbers are under their responsibility.

It is possible that the date displayed on the online for the pre-order of the item you have ordered and paid for may change for two reasons:

  1. All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
  2. The container is late and we have to shift the date by a few days. (Strikes, breakdowns, overbooking, can unfortunately happen). You will be notified by email.

We never change the delivery dates of a container without notifying customers.

 

Delays:

The dates that we announce are shipping deadlines, which GONG has in stock and available here physically.

We usually give a shipping time within 3 days, but in most cases, we ship within 24/48 hours. Normally morning orders leave in the afternoon for example.

Then the transport service takes over. The variables are then important between the customer being delivered to France (very fast) or Bulgaria (a good week) or to a forwarding agent or to Asia or the USA… You understand that each location has its own type of delay.

We work with serious and well-known carriers. They do their utmost to make you happy even if a snafu can happen. In any case, we are there to make things easier and to arrange our customers.

 

Shipping Fees: 

Contrary to others, we do not hide shipping costs in the price of our products. At GONG everyone knows exactly what he pays. The transport is charged at its strictest value, and the person who comes to pick up his products does not pay hidden transport fees.

Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight and volume of each package, and your delivery address. To this is added a labour time of order preparation.

The invoicing of the shipping costs is identical in continental France and in the bordering European countries. A surcharge is automatically invoiced for deliveries to the most distant European countries and all European islands.

For a shipment in French overseas departments and territories or outside Europe, our logistics department will contact you before the payment stage to give you an estimate of the shipping costs. You will be able to accept this estimate and pay your order, or refuse it and cancel your order.

 

Any questions:

We answer you within 24 hours by email. But 95% of your questions are answered on the site. Try to use our contact form which will guide you to all these answers.

Don’t forget to read the Forum, where thousands of users exchange information and experiences.

In any case, don’t panic. If you don’t get an answer during the weekend, it’s normal: the team is resting 😉

We are passionate and professional in our job. Our only goal is to make you happy, as much as possible 😉

 

Eco-responsible packaging:

Preserving the environment is a top priority. That’s why we are doing everything possible to reduce our environmental footprint.

The first thing is to sell quality products that will last, be repairable and will please you for a long time.

The second thing is to sell for less. Most of the pollution coming from a Board is in its use (the km driven to use it) and in the countless environmental damages you have to do to pay for it. Each euro spent is a sum of damage related to your life quite simply: eating, working hard etc… By reducing the price of our products, we significantly reduce your ecological footprint on this item.

For our shipments we use:

  • Flexi-Hex: ecological packaging of very high resistance.
  • Paper Craft Scotch Tape.
  • Final packaging made of high-end cardboard.

All this for:

  • Reusable and recyclable packaging.
  • An almost total reduction of single-use plastic.
  • Maximum protection and impact resistance thanks to the innovative design of Flexi-Hex honeycomb (35mm thick).

 

Tracking of your parcels :

The tracking of deliveries is directly ensured by the carriers to whom we have entrusted your parcels. They will contact you by email or SMS to allow you to choose the delivery methods and to follow the route of your package.

If you ask us for this tracking, we will have to do as you do: we will go see on the carrier’s app because they are the ones who manage and are responsible for this job.

 

Delivery:

We collaborate with the best transport providers to deliver you everywhere in Europe and in the world in very short delays.

We have chosen them for their quality of service and their respect of deadlines. 80% of your orders reach their destination in less than 48 hours of processing in metropolitan and continental France.

For Europe, the delays vary from 3 to 6 days depending on the country of destination.

For the rest of the world, delays can be up to 15 days.

Please note that the transport time is added to the preparation/shipping time. Two companies work on your order (GONG and the carrier). Each one controls its activity and commits itself to optimize its delays so that you are delivered as soon as possible, in good condition and at a reasonable price.

 

Reception of your Board:

Upon delivery, simply open and inspect the condition of your Board in the presence of the carrier. A complete email explaining the procedure to follow will be sent to you when your order is shipped.

In spite of our requirements and all the care we take in packaging and protecting your Board, transportation hazards may occur. Even if it concerns less than 2% of everything we ship around the world, a Board can suffer a more or less important transportation shock.

But in any case, don’t worry, just refuse it, and a new Board will be shipped back to you.

 

Returns:

You can choose to return your products if:

  • You are not satisfied (14 days right of retraction).
  • You want to change an item.
  • You have refused your package.

6 reviews for GONG SUP LEMON FSP PRO

  1. Nicolas Leforestier

    En juillet dernier vous aviez eu le droit à mon récit « bref j’ai fait de la wing ». En fait je ne sais pas ce que j’avais fais à ce moment là mais aujourd’hui j’ai découvert ce que c’était de réellement faire de la wing !!!

    Première session en Lemon 5.0 , wing Pulse 4m en main, et sous la board 1m de carbone et une XL PRO , stab surf 45.
    Un poil inquiet de la flottabilité de la 5’0 en 100 L pour mes presque 90kgs. En fait on se met facile à genoux et dès que l’aile tire un peu ca passe crème… deux pumps et ça décolle.

    Ensuite ce qui m’a vraiment changé la vie c’est ce mât carbone. On nous vante surtout sa rigidité mais en français ça se traduit par une stabilité incroyable, les jibes en vol sont d’une facilité déconcertante, mes changements de pied en l’air passent direct alors que ça me paraissait impossible.

    Petit détail je suis passé sur un leash téléphone pour l’aile, ça change la vie. Fini le leash autour du cou en fin de transition.

    Bref j’ai fait de la wing ! Happy, merci Patrice Guénolé


    Last July, you got the chance to read my story “I’ve been Winging” … in fact I didn’t know what I was doing at that time but today I discovered what it really meant to Wing !!!

    First session in Lemon 5.0, Wing pulse 4m in hand, and under the Board 1m of Carbon and an XL Pro, stab and 45cm Surf Stab.
    A little bit worried about the buoyancy of the 5 in 100l for my almost 90kgs, in fact it’s easy to get down on your knees and as soon as the Wing pulls a little bit, it’s creamy… two pumps and it takes off.

    Then what really changed my life is this Carbon Mast, we are mostly praised for its rigidity but in French it translates into incredible stability, the jibes in flight are disconcertingly easy, my changes of foot in the air pass directly through when it seemed impossible.

    Small detail I went for a coiled Leash for the Wing it changed life, going from having the Leash around the neck at the end of every transition …
    Anyway I’m Winging ! Happy, thank you Patrice Guénolé

    Retour sur ma 4’10 Lemon.

    Et bien, elle est juste fantastique. Poids du rider : 72 kgs.

    Deuxième session sur le lac Urnersee en Suisse, avec la XL PRO et le stab 45 surf. C’est vraiment hallucinant. En pomping, c’est juste dingue comparé à la Zuma 6’6 105 L ! Un ou deux pumps et je vole. Avec la Zuma, cela me demandait plus de job. Le feeling est phénoménal. Tellement fluide, réactive et maniable. J’ai installé le stab surf de 45, avant, avec le stab Kite 45, c’était trop nerveux pour débuter. Le vent était de quasiment rien à 19 Nds. J’étais avec ma Wing 7m Original, étant donné que j’avais endommagé ma 6m Superpower avec mon foil (c’est en cours de réparation).

    La différence de poids et/ou de longueur de la Lemon apportent de nombreuses différences en navigation comparé à la Zuma.

    Les 85 L me portent vraiment bien dans très peu de vent voire quasiment rien.

    Merci beaucoup pour cette planche Patrice.

    J’ai trouvé également que de monter sur la planche avec les coudes pliés permet de ne pas mettre de coup avec la boucle du harnais. Pour cette session, je suis allé sans pour me sentir plus libre et avoir l’esprit tranquille.

    have fun.


    Feedback on my Lemon 4’10!

    Well, it’s fantastic! Rider weight: 72kg.

    2nd session today on lake Urnersee, Switzerland. With XL PRO and 45 surf stab . It’s really amazing. It pumps up so well compared to the Zuma 6’6 105L! One, two pumps and I am up! Before with the Zuma it was a hell of a work to get it up. The feeling is phenomenal! So fluid, reactive and agile. I put the 45 surf stab back on, before with the 45 kite stab it was too nervous for the beginning. Wind was from 0 – 19 knots. With 7 GONG Original, since I pierced my 6m Superpower already with the foil ( it’s being in repair).

    Is it because of the the weight and/or the length there is such a difference in riding the lemon compared to the Zuma. And the 85L are supporting me well even in very low to no wind.

    Thank you for such a nice board Patrice!

    Also getting up on the board with the elbows bent helps not to touch with the harness hook I found out. Today went out without just to be free and not worry.

    Have fun.

    Bonjour


    Pendant que c’est encore à peu près frais dans mes souvenirs… voici mon ressenti sur la Lemon 4’8″.
1,80 m 68 kg bientôt 50 ans, windsurfer, kitefoiler, supfoiler expérimenté, et wingfoiler addict !


    Le visuel tout d’abord, je trouve la finition haut de gamme, l’aspect semi-pro est top, et 4,8 kg, bien moins qu’annoncé sur la fiche initiale.
Je trouve que les constructions ont fait un bond en avant depuis peu (2019), du full sandwich pvc carbone à ce prix cette année, bravo !


    J’ai appris sur une Zuma 6’3″ 2019 (95 l), très rapidement devenue trop encombrante, une fois les rudiments acquis, aucun bénéfice de continuer sur cette taille.
Je cherchais donc une board minimaliste, mais sans tomber dans le côté extrême des boards en volume négatif, gros toilage oblige et souvent pas assez de fond dans les vagues pour couler la board sereinement ici.


    Les 70 l de la Lemon 4’8″ me conviennent parfaitement. La board flotte bien, l’adaptation a été quasi immédiate.
A genoux la largeur très confortable stabilise bien le roulis, il faut par contre être bien concentré sur l’axe longitudinal, l’avant est fin, pas de marge de placement. Il faut se lever rapidement.
La planche étant très courte, le takeoff doit se faire en dynamique sur quelques mètres.

    La board prends peu de vitesse à plat, à la manière d’un short sup. En plage normale le pomping est impératif. Cependant grâce à la compacité, le poids et la rigidité, la board est super réactive donc le pomping est très efficace, elle “bondit” vers l’avant et décolle rapidement.
En vol c’est idéal, à nouveau super réactif, proche des sensations d’une board de kitefoil, et tout me semble plus facile, il n’y a plus l’inertie de la Zuma.
Le vent n’étant plus suffisant pour continuer à voler en wing, j’ai même pu tester avec une aile de kite (en gardant le même foil), cela marche super bien, ultra facile pour bosser les transitions ! Dorénavant j’emmènerai systématiquement une aile de kite en secours pour mes sessions wing.

    
Bref, je suis conquis par cette board, j’ai trouvé tout ce que j’attendais, perfs et accessibilité. Attention toutefois, ce n’est pas une board de débutant, mais un intermédiaire sportif devrait rapidement trouver ses marques je pense, en choisissant le bon volume.


    Merci Gong ! 


    Good morning.


    While it’s still pretty fresh in my memory… here’s my feeling about the 4’8″ Lemon.
1,80 m 68 kg almost 50 years old, Windsurfer, Kitefoiler, experienced SUPfoiler, and Wingfoiler addict!

    First of all the visuals, I find the finish top of the range, the semi-pro look is killer, and 4,8 kg, much less than announced on the initial sheet.
I find that the constructions have made a leap forward recently (2019), Full PVC Carbon Sandwich at this price this year, bravo!


    I learned on a Zuma 6’3″ 2019 (95 l), very quickly became too bulky, once the rudiments acquired, no benefit to continue on this size.
So I was looking for a minimalist Board, but without falling into the extreme side of negative volume Boards, more canvas and often not enough depth in the waves so the Board can bottom out.


    The 70 l of the Lemon 4’8″ suits me perfectly. The Board floats well, the adaptation was almost immediate.
On my knees the very comfortable width stabilizes the roll well, but you have to be well concentrated on the longitudinal axis, the front is thin, no room for placement. You have to get up quickly.


    The Board being very short, the takeoff has to be dynamic and within a few meters. The Board takes little speed flat, like a shortSUP. In normal range, pumping is imperative. However, thanks to the compactness, weight and stiffness, the Board is super reactive so pumping is very efficient, it “jumps” forward and takes off quickly.
In flight it’s ideal, again super reactive, close to the feeling of a Kitefoil Board, and everything seems easier, there’s no more inertia of the Zuma.
The wind was not enough to continue flying with a Wing, I could even test with a Kite (keeping the same Foil), it works great, ultra easy to work on transitions! From now on I will always bring a Kite as a backup for my Wing sessions.

    
In short, I am convinced by this Board, I found everything I expected, performance and accessibility. Be careful though, it’s not a beginners Board, but a sporty intermediate should quickly find his marks with it I think, by choosing the right volume.


    Thank you, Gong!

    Bonjour à tous,

    Quelques mots sur ma prise en main de la Lemon en 4’10/28/85L.

    J’ai longtemps hésité sur cette board notamment à cause de la taille (je ride depuis Septembre une 5’8/24/80L) de la concurrence. Je ne savais vraiment pas ce qui m’attendait sur l’eau (170cm/64 Kgs).

    Je passe sur le déballage, beaucoup ont déjà mentionné le poids au top (400gr de moins que ma 5’8/Lemon pesée sans les straps à 5,310Kgs), l’harmonie des courbes du shape malgré son atypisme, le côté « Joujou » que ma femme a kiffé et la qualité générale de l’ensemble.

    Arrivé sur la plage, je rencontre un copain, bon wing foiler qui m’annonce que la veille il a grave galéré avec le même style de board d’une autre marque.

    Là je commence à transpirer dans ma combi, c’est pas le moment de reculer. Rafales à 15/18 Nds, je pars en 4,2 m2, sous les regards prêts à la critique des potes. Le plan d’eau n’est pas en vrac mais agité.

    Assez de fond pour retourner le foil, appui sur la board, je monte à genoux, et là surprise aucun mouvement parasite avant/arrière ou droite/gauche. Rassuré, je saisi l’aile, toujours nickel.

    Je monte la jambe avant, le pied se cale direct entre les trous du strap (qui n’est pas mis pour cette première nav), 2 coups de pompe d’aile et c’est parti. Là j’ai une pensée pour mon cops sur la plage qui me voit décoller sans aucun souci au premier essai.

    Suit une top session avec une board hyper agréable sous les pieds, vraiment bien équilibrée et super joueuse, avec laquelle on se prend à bien accélérer donc facile dans les manœuvres par rapport à ma précédente.

    Qualités à confirmer sur plan d’eau plus agité. J’ai le temps de m’entraîner d’ici là. Et bien sur test des straps.

    Du coup la 70L en dessous me parait plus si inaccessible… A suivre.

    J’aurais bien voulu émettre quelques critiques… Une autre fois peut être.

    Bravo à tous pour cette board, et le reste.

    Sportivement.

    Basco


    Hello everybody,

    A few words about my experience with the Lemon in 4’10/28/85L.

    I hesitated for a long time on this Board because of the size (I‘ve ridden, since September, a 5’8/24/80L) competition Board, I really didn’t know what was waiting for me on the water (170cm/64 Kgs).

    I’ll pass on the unboxing, many have already mentioned it, the weight at the top (400 g less than my 5’8/Lemon weighed without the straps at 5,310Kgs), the harmony of the lines of the Shape despite it being atypical, the prettier side that my wife liked and the general quality of it as a whole.

    Arrival on the beach, I meet a friend, good Wing foiler who tells me that the day before he has struggled with the same style of Board from another Brand.

    There I start to sweat in my suit, but it’s not the time to go back. 15/18 knots gusts, I leave in 4.2 m2, under judgmental eyes and ready for the criticism of friends. The water is not a total mess but agitated.

    The bottom is deep enough to turn the Foil over, leaning on the Board, I get on my knees, and there, big surprise, no parasitic movement forward/backward or right/left. Reassured, I grasp the Wing, which was clean.

    I climb the front leg, the foot is wedged directly between the holes of the strap (which I did not put on for this first nav), 2 kite pumps and it’s off, there I have a thought for my buddy on the beach that see me take off without any problems at the first try.

    Then follows a top session with a very pleasant Board under the feet, really well balanced and super playful, with which you get to accelerate well so easy in the maneuvers compared to my previous one.

    Qualities to be confirmed on more agitated water, I have time to train until then. And of course straps test.

    So the 70 ls underneath seems to me more so inaccessible … to follow.

    I would have liked to make some criticisms… another time maybe.

    Congratulations to all for this Board…and for the rest.

    Sporting salutations.

    Basco

    By the way the lemon is FANTASTIC 😉
    It’s a totally new feeling, so much more agile, reactive, like having a new foil wing underneath (1 size smaller).

    Hello,
    Planche récupérer au dépot jeudi soir 😀 c’est petit, c’est super léger et elle est très jolie.
    Samedi premier essai avec un peu d’appréhension après la mob 7.11 (on dirait une biscotte 🙄 ).
    Condition très light : 9/10 noeuds mais plan d’eau propre ce qui me motive à me mettre à l’eau avec la 7m pulse;
    départ à genou ,il faut bien se centrer sur la planche sinon ça enfourne ou ça coule du cul et plouf ( au début).
    Une petite risée a l’horizon , on en profite pour se mettre debout et hop le pied avant vient instinctivement se caler dans le strap et finalement ça ne coule pas.
    Une autre risée, je pompe comme je peux avec les bras et les jambes et elle décolle de suite, en route pour un tour de tapis volant version small.
    C’est radical par rapport à la mob et on peut jouer sans avoir peur des touchettes.
    Aujourd’hui, session plus ventée avec 20/30 noeuds , de bonnes rafales et un plan d’eau en chantier.
    Je sors la 5m original et appréhende un peu les départs a genou.
    Là pas trop besoin de pomper ça décolle illico et je m’éclate à jouer avec la houle (elle pardonne vraiment bien les touchettes).
    J’ai essayé quelques jibe sans grand résultat mais pas à l’aise au vu des conditions par contre je pense que cela sera plus simple qu’avec la mob (ça va passer ,c’est sur).
    et le truc trop bien, c’est quand on sort de l’eau bien cuit, la planche est vraiment légère, je pose le mat sur l’épaule et me dit que finalement j’y retournerais bien un peu !
    Du coup, pas de regret d’avoir vendu la mob qui ma permis un bon apprentissage et super content de cette LEMON.
    QUESTION : pas facile de mettre le pied arrière dans le strap en vol, faut il mieux le mettre dès le départ?
    MERCI


    Hello,

    Board picked up at the Depot Thursday night. It’s small, it’s super light and very nice.

    Saturday first try with a little apprehension after the 7.11 Mob (it looks like a bodyboard).

    Very light conditions: 9/10 knots but clean water which motivates me to go in the water with the 7m Pulse. Start on your knees, you have to be centered on the Board otherwise it’s going to pearl, or sink and you’ll be swimming (at the beginning).
    A small gust of wind on the horizon, we take advantage of it to stand up and the front foot instinctively comes to wedge itself in the strap and finally it does not sink. Another nice breeze, I pump as much as I can with my arms and legs and she takes off immediately, on her way to a small version of the magic carpet. It’s radical compared to the Mob and you can play without being afraid to touch it.

    Today, windier session with 20/30 knots, good gusts and a body of water that wasn’t so pretty. I take out the Original 5m and apprehended a bit with the knee starts. I don’t really need to pump, it takes off right away and I’m having fun playing with the swell.

    I’ve tried a few jibes without much result but I’m not comfortable with the conditions but I think it will be easier than with the Mob (it will pass, for sure). And the thing that’s too good is when you get out of the water well done, the Board is really light, I put the mast on my shoulder and I think I’ll finally go back a little bit.

    So no regrets to have sold the Mob that allowed me good learning and am super happy with this LEMON.
