The best for wave riding in an accessible shape.

Presentation

The Lemon is both extreme in its dimensions and harmonious in its shape. One could say that everything “falls into place” on this board as its shape instinctively meets our needs without encountering any difficulties.

In 2023, we wanted to make this board even more efficient while keeping its ease of use. It was a long work of shaping in order to optimize the distribution of volumes with the addition of a bulb at the nose which allows to lower the deck plan for a more direct connection to your foil. This volume facilitates the phases before the flight and getting past the waves, but it also boosts the repop when hitting the water, leading you straight to the next trick. You can go for solid turns with extra confidence and on top of that, it just looks great…

The rails have been reworked. They are now more vertical with sharper edges to improve stability but also glide and take-off. We get out of the water more frankly. The board feels much lighter to the feet.

The ease with which you’ll find your bearings will be the most striking thing on the Lemon. This high performance board makes everything easier. You’ll progress like never before.

The new sizes perfectly meet everybody’s needs. Small volumes like the 35L for sinker boards fans. Instead of the 80L board, we now propose two sizes for more precision: a 75L and a 85L. With 9 sizes from 35L to 120L, everyone will find the perfect match with the Lemon.

A relatively thin nose to save weight and reduce inertia in curves and pumping. A pinched square tail that limits touchdowns. Narrower than in 2022 for more speed on the water, it offers sufficient width for pre-flight stability and when landing. All the volume is concentrated under your feet with up to 120L in a 5’4! However, the harmony of the shape is obvious to the eye and on the water it is a revelation.

The secret resides in its tail: it releases water without restraint. Directly inspired by the Lethal’s magic tail, the Lemon takes off 2 knots earlier. It is a considerable difference as you will no longer require such a big wing or wear yourself out pumping. The board is also more stable and pops harder.

This shape delivers extreme performance with its thin nose on a compact shape. This small board, ultra maneuverable, nevertheless keeps a comfortable volume to perform in the lighter conditions but also in the landings of tricks and capricious winds, without having to go for a splash.

In surfing, it is lively and fluid at the same time, aggressive and reassuring… The Lemon allows curves and moves that no other board accepts so easily. In long, fast waves, it’s pure carving, truly impressive. And you can easily get back on it to restart after a fall, which matters when you are in between big sets.

In jumps its a small and very lively board which has a comfortable landing surface. You can really nail every landing without fear of falling. A board that makes you feel confident without being bulky is definitely the best compromise.

The high performance of a short and sharp shape, but with a comfortable surface.

Shape

Even if the width has been further reduced, the comfort on the surface is improved to facilitate the transitions. This is the big plus of the Lemon 2023. More hull surface for more comfort in the learning phases.

Let’s first talk about its nose bulb which gives that little extra tolerance that changes everything. With this additional volume at the nose, we are obviously more stable when stationary. But we also have a real gain when sailing, especially when pearling or landing: the board pops up again immediately.

 

Adding volume to the nose allowed us to lower the deck plan at foot level for the same volume. This volume that has slipped at the nose allows you to be closer to the foil with a lower deck under your feet, and therefore have much more control and responsiveness. Here again, the gain is considerable.

Its very narrow outline (up to -2.5 cm compared to the 2022) also boosts take off and speed on the water. Once in the air, responsiveness is at its best with an instant rail to rail without any feeling of heaviness, but above all a unique ability to go for a lot of angle in the curves without touching the water.

Its very hydrodynamic kick tail allows it to embark “hidden volume”. Indeed, the tail is thick but with its magical glide it’s only positive. Unlike beveled tails, our Magic Tail promotes flow. The board glides much better before the flight. We don’t have this depression at the tail that sucks the board back. Remember that beveled tails were created to lift SUP foil boards. And keep in mind that the flight occurs before the wing board’s planing speed. A cut tail is not the most relevant choice for wing boards in regards to the take off. With our magic tail, we therefore gain in stability, on take off, on repop, and in approximate landings.

 

 

The facets on the rails allow you to fly without fearing a crushing blow at the slightest touchdown on a chop or in tight curves. Even smaller, they do their job with an 85 cm mast. The top rails are full to keep a flat deck closer to the outline and maximize lateral stability.

The edge to edge is wider than in 2022 by nearly 2 cm. Paradoxically, the narrower 2023 boards have more hull width than the 2022 which had a wider outline. With the facets being more vertical on the rails, we gain in performance and sharpness in the piloting. This shape makes it easier to get planing. Take-off is further improved.

The double concave under the nose coupled with the bulb and the narrow outline make the touchdowns totally harmless. Instead of braking, the Lemon will bounce off the water and immediately recover the flight. It’s really amazing when landing jumps or in the air when surfing. This absence of sanction pushes you to try tricks and will make you progress.

Finally, the rounded point nose develops the liveliness of a thin nose but brings some additional comfort, reinforced by the bulbous nose. The wide tail is pinched by two wingers at the level of the rear foot to release the board on takeoff and in curves.

Equipments

The set of footstraps is offered with the board. For 2023 we have reviewed the outline of our straps to further improve comfort. Developed for wing foiling, these straps with less cover do not bend when put on.

More rigid, they offer a more precise steering but are still as comfortable. There is less surface area on the feet so there is less risk of staying stuck in the straps or banging your foot on the edge of the strap when rushing into it. It also allows better leeward control (tip of the foot) and therefore a more natural attitude in wing foiling.
We have worked on every detail to improve your experience on the water.

The V-shaped footstraps perfectly center the foot on the front of the board. The position is thus more natural and allows direct and precise control in maneuvers.

 

 

For 2023, our SCS system launched on the HIPE is integrated on all our foil boards. It’s beautiful, efficient and above all it saves time you can spend on the water. With its 4 entries, the GONG double entry box facilitates the assembly and adjustment of the foil. Performance without the hassle. We leave the nuts and the screws on the plate, just insert the foil, screw and off we go! Setting up the foil is much faster and easier. It is the plug and play solution which facilitates adjustments! (inserts not supplied with the board).

 

 

A handle developed by our R&D and our ergonomics engineer has been integrated into our boards this year. We can better close our hands in it: a firmer and more comfortable grip. The depressurization screw is directly integrated into the handle.

It is placed on the hull to allow one-handed carrying. You can have the wing in the other hand to get past the whitewater or to get out of the water. And as we always do things seriously, the handle is placed in a block of hydrophobic PVC foam and covered with fiber.

 

 

The top-of-the-range 5mm thick integral pad provides maximum grip and comfort when sailing, while protecting the board from shocks. This year we have changed the grooving to provide even more comfort and more grip. This hard brush pad sublimates the board. This flat pad provides absolute comfort and a magical grip with more precision. This is obvious on long sessions: the feet are less tired.

Construction

These boards are equipped with our innovative technology called FSP Pro. The highest quality on the market.

This full PVC Carbon sandwich offers the best dynamism while preserving strength, at an incredible weight. It’s quite simply the ultimate in vacuum technology for customs, used as standard on our production models : the same tech as the one used on our prototypes made in our shape rooms in France.

 

FULL sandwich means that the entire board is covered with a layer of 3mm high density hydrophobic PVC foam. This includes the rails, which allows better resistance and perfect sealing in the event of an impact. Above all, the sandwich on the rails are essential to have a rigid board as they work as a solid frame when the board takes flex. The dynamism is really superior and the durability of the board is second to none. This tech is not adopted by all competing brands. What they call sandwich construction is often a simple PVC reinforcement under the feet (and sometimes on the hull). At GONG we do things as seriously as they can be, so in full sandwich.

The carbon fiber that completely covers the board boosts its performance. It is clearly much livelier. Its response time is ultra fast, it does not twist, you are in direct contact with the foil and the elements.

All the lamination steps of the high density sandwich and then of the fiber are carried out under vacuum. The board is under strong pressure, from 2 to 4 tonnes depending on the stage, to ensure flawless bonding of the layers. With the use of drains we optimize the amount of resin on the board leaving only the optimum. Your board is light and super compact. A durable board made to handle all the stresses of a board’s life, its construction also offers a sound basis for any future repairs. So your board will stay like new for years or decades with proper maintenance. This durability will make a lot of people happy from one owner to the next, and avoids polluting with “disposable” boards.

To implement this very complex technology, we need time. A board without a full sandwich is built in 6 to 8 hours. GONG full sandwich boards take 12 to 14 hours of work. You understand that all these steps lengthen the production circuit and are therefore a monumental investment in quality.

For 2023 we have replaced the classic US Boxes, which everyone uses but which were not originally designed for foiling, with our own US Double Entry GONG Boxes designed and tested by our design office for extreme use in foiling. These new boxes are specifically reinforced in areas of high stress and are molded with a high fiber content. Durability is increased tenfold. We are clearly on the best BOX on the market which corresponds exactly to our needs in terms of resistance and functionality. What could be simpler than aligning the 4 nuts with the 4 entrances and sliding the foil into the box? 3 turns with a screw tightener and it’s ready. It’s so easy that you’ll wonder how you could do it the old way for years hahaha.

The foil boxes are placed in a large PVC 80kg/m3 reinforcement thicker than the boxes. Without any risk of water infiltration in the EPS sandwich, even with an intense impact. This reinforcement is connected to the PVC sandwich of the deck with PVC slats to ensure the cohesion of the whole and to avoid any play in the reinforcements over the years. Everything is fitted with fiberglass reinforcements for tolerance and carbon to limit bending. The handle is also set in a waterproof PVC block.

Remember that the high density PVC blocks that house the boxes and the handle are in addition to the full PVC sandwich. The anchoring is absolutely perfect. Not to compare with a reinforcement simply held by layers of fiber. Our reinforcements take hold on a high thickness of rigid material that you would not be able to bend by hand for example, which you could if it was only layers of fibers.

 

 

Our technology is truly the ultimate in board construction. Durable, efficient, repairable, we can count on one hand the number of brands able to offer a total PVC sandwich on a big scale production of wing boards. GONG is the leader!

At GONG, our boards are the highest quality. Our low prices can only be explained by our direct sales model, eliminating margins. If by misfortune you break them, they can be repaired from A to Z with the components we keep in stock for your favorite repairer.

Buying guide

For Whom?

You must have a sufficient skill level:

  • Either you have a background in windsurfing, it helps a lot to handle the wing.
  • You already know how to use a foil.
  • You have a significant number of flight hours with a wing foil.

In any case, the Lemon is demanding.

With a large volume, it is easy (your weight + 30), but if you order a volume adapted to your weight (+10), keeping balance on your knees won’t be easy. So, you also need to be in good physical shape to be reactive and have a few flight hours under your belt.

This is clearly the board for anyone who wants to go for the maximum potential wing foiling while keeping comfort.

For What?

The Lemon is a pure wave riding board, with just the right amount of comfort to make life easier and do tricks without struggling to relaunch.

All the useful material of the board is between your feet and above the foil. It is hyper reactive and playful. It’s a great feeling to have everything right at your fingertips. The control at high speed and in the curves is fantastic.

Ideal for surfing, tricks, and perfect in jumps, it’s 100% high performance.

What Size?


The Lemon is the ultimate board in wing foiling. But by playing on volumes, you can adapt it to your needs:

Comfort

You can select a volume large enough to float, which is your weight +10 = volume

  • Example: I weigh 75kg + 10 = 85L to float. This means that with 85L I’ll be all good as long as I have a good wing level.

Sport

You can also sub-liter because the Lemon is large enough to be stable. 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 on your wing in the water.

  • Example: I weigh 75kg = 75L to slightly sub-liter. This means that with 75L my board will sink lightly and I will have to be precise and sporty at each start.

Sinker

At your weight – 30 = volume, you will have to start by sinking the board: it’s technical, very physical, and you lose part of the low wind range. And above all: you need depth, which can be annoying. The performance gain is debatable depending on your level, but the gain in sensations and responsiveness is interesting for some. It is also the best way to have light equipment, which is essential for the pros and especially for the biggest riders.

  • Example: I weigh 75kg – 30 = 45L to use my board as a Sinker. Which means that with 65L and less, my board will completely sink and I will have to start with the help of the wing to get out of the water. In this case, less volume often makes things easier because we sink the board with ease. This makes it easier to place our feet on the deck or in the straps and climb on it. A small board won’t pop out as a cork, therefore easier to on it but not as quick to take off. Its stability qualities when on the surface remain the same underwater.

Finally, the most unstable volume is often the one between 10L and 20L less than your weight.

Understanding the GONG range?

The concept of each board of the range can be summed up very simply:

  • HIPE First: the perfect inflatable board to learn wing foiling!
  • HIPE Free Fly: the best of strapless on an inflatable foil board.
  • HIPE Perf: the inflatable foil board with 95% of the performance of a rigid board, in an easy and scalable shape.
  • HIPE Pro: the inflatable board with 95% of the performance of a rigid one with a shape dedicated to advanced foilers who want fluidity and maximum responsiveness!
  • Mob 2taste: three sports in one board: SUP, SUP foiling and wing foiling.
  • Zuma: the easy rigid board for SUP foiling and wing foiling, and with good performance.
  • Lance: the compact Zuma, with great lateral stability, ideal for beginnings in wing foiling.
  • Cruzader: fantastic in SUP downwinders, pumping on the flat, but also in light wind conditions in wing foiling.
  • Flint: high performance in SUP foiling, great in wing foiling because it is simple and efficient in light wind.
  • Kube: pure freestyle board. Minimum length for maximum rotation.
  • Mint: compact without being too technical thanks to a perfect length and its round nose. Great performance in strapless too.
  • Lemon: maximum reactivity and liveliness, while maintaining stability.
  • Lethal: Absolute radicality among volume boards.

Some will go for even more extreme with low volume boards like:

Which quiver?

The Lemon is self-sufficient in wing foiling. There is no need to supplement it with another board.

If you are greedy, a possible addition in wing foiling is to have another board for the strong wind. In this case, you can have a Lemon in your size, for comfort. And another board two volumes below. For example, a Lemon in your size and a Lethal two sizes smaller. This is the wave rider quiver by excellence.

Another option is to have a Lemon as a “sport” board for strong winds and a board that has lift for light winds, that takes off early like a Flint or a Mint. Or a freestyle board like the Kube.

But this is a luxury…

The Lemon is made for a very advanced wing practice, and will match perfectly with a kite foil to perform under 10 knots. A wing foil is not at its best under 10 knots. A Catch with a 13m2 Strutless and a set of smaller foil wings and go: the ultimate quiver for almost nothing to strong winds.

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

And don’t forget surf foiling. It’s the magic combo with wing foiling. When one doesn’t work, the other is great. Because even on super flat days you can practice dock starts. You’ll be in crazy physical shape! The front wings are the same, you would just need a shorter mast.

Which foil wings?

In general, we recommend the same assembly as for surf foil.

  • Fluid XXLS and Veloce XL-T for riders above 85kg and wind below 15 knots.
  • XXL for riders above 95kg in the light wind.

For the pros

In the Fluid H, Veloce H or Ypra range: very high performance and fast wings:

At this level, everyone will be able to adapt their gear to their needs. Just remember that the wingspan is a point to take into consideration when riding high aspect ratio foils. The glide is fabulous, but be careful not to sacrifice maneuverability and rail-to-rail precision by using large sizes if you are looking for a very reactive drive.

The size of the front wing and in particular its surface and its volume condition the speed/lift ratio. The smaller the wing, the faster you will go but the more uncomfortable you will be at low speeds. The bigger the wing, the earlier you will fly but with a loss in maneuverability and top speed.

The stabs have a major role. They determine the stability of the foil and help with its lift, but to the detriment of the maximum speed of the foil and its maneuverability if they are too large. The role of the stabilizer is to stabilize the foil but also to compensate for the natural tendency of the front wing to dive. So you must have a good balance of surfaces between your stab and your front wing. A 38 cm stab with an XXL wing will give a catastrophic result at high speed: the foil will dive because the stab will no longer be able to lift enough to counteract the nosediving torque of the front wing.

Remember that the stab must be proportional to the front wing. Creating an imbalance brings no benefit except the illusion of a better glide.
For instance, the X-Over Stabs are slower than the Fluid Stabs or the Veloce Stabs, but are much more buoyant, and therefore effective at low speed or with a large front wing (for beginners for example). Conversely, the Pro Stabs are very thin and not very buoyant, therefore delicate with large thick wings which have an important nosediving torque.

Which foil mast?

In other words, everything will be played out between 85cm and 100cm. You can find all our advice on choosing between these two lengths by clicking here.

In summary, for waves and freestyle, but also for beginners and progressing, an 85 mast is ideal. Simple to put in the water, an easy rail to rail, it’s perfect. A 90 cm mast and above is great for Racing by offering more margin at high speed, namely in choppy conditions, but isn’t as maneuverable. All our masts : here.

Positioning of the foil?

For GONG foils, place the plate in the rear third when you start and in the center of the US rails when you progress. The Pros can position the foil even further towards the front for more lift and maneuverability.

The more you move it forward, the more the board will pitch nose-up. The more you move it backwards, the more the board nose-dives.

Be careful not to move it too far forward. We often tend not to let their back foot work, especially when we come from kite foiling. However, moving the foil back a little, forces more weight on the back foot and gives a more harmonious attitude and reduces effort.

Which leash?

Take a 6′ of 7mm minimum diameter.

Check its condition before each session and change it every year. It is your lifejacket and the life insurance of the people in front of you.

Strap or Strapless?

Riding strapless is sexy because it makes you feel free. But quite honestly, it’s not the best for 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 the straps.

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

Put your straps in a central position (3rd hole) for the front, and the same goes for the back strap if you always ride with the back strap (it can be used as a marker stop).

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.

4 reviews for GONG WING FOIL BOARD LEMON FSP PRO 2023

  1. NICOLAS T (verified owner)

    Reçu lemon 4’9 après bcp d’hésitation pour la 4’7. Je viens des lethal 5’3 puis 4’10 2021 et leur seul gros defaut surtout pour la 4’10 etait sa grosse instabilité dans tous les axes et surtout longitudinal, physique dans les grosses condi et quand il faut vite repartir entre les sets. Je revais de ce bulbe à l’avant. Et voici fait! Le shape de la lemon est parxait pour mes attentes, a bientot 50 ans 75 kg chercher la radicalité des perits volumes est une fausse piste sachant que je recherche que le surf. La 4’7 me faisait douter pour le light en HA.
    Top finitions, qualité peinture me paraissant plus resistante, le pad est bluffant de grip ( je ride strapless), la stabilité juste ce qu’il faut, maniabilité forcément démente, les rails a double entrée un bonheur… un vrai total game changer! Decollage super rapide avec pumping facile grace au bulbe (sur veloce ha testé). Donc le graal du shape et un poids ultraliggt!! Que du très très bon. J’ai trouvé ma board à tout faire. Bravo!!

    Lemon 4.9 reçue aujourd’hui et testée dans la foulée… toutes les qualités de la lemon, mais en mieux, bien mieux !🤪

    J’ai apprécié les petits volumes en 2022, mais je cherchais plus de stabilité en passant de lethal 2022 à Lemon 2022, je n’ai pas été dessus. J’ai donc de nouveau fait confiance pour la toute nouvelle Lemon 2023 qui semblait radicalement différentes sous pleins de points. Une nouvelle fois, j’ai bien fais d’écouter l’équipe qui est vraiment de très bon conseil. On sent que derrière ils connaissent le matériel qu’ils vendent, c’est assez rare de nos jours, surtout lorsqu’on a pas envie de se tromper sur le choix. Je n’ai pas été déçu ? Je voulais rester sur une board dont le volume était quasiment l’équivalent de mon poids de corps. Ici la 4.6 pour 65 litres. Le bulbe est une sacrée nouveauté, on sent clairement son intérêt, ça pousse pas d’eau, ça aide à la relance, on enfourne que très peu et on semble gagner de la stabilité. Le pad est au top, il agrippe au top en plus d’en jeter carrément ?J’ai remarqué que les rails étaient plus durs, on le sent vraiment quand on est en phase de start et que l’on souhaite s’extraire de conditions compliquées. Bref déjà que j’étais conquis par le modèle 2022, ce cru 2023 est une vraie petite bombe

    Cette nouvelle Lemon est vraiment incroyable, pour avoir eu les Lemon 2021 et 2022, ce nouveau shape est game changer!! Ca décolle hyper tôt, c’est stable au décollage malgré une faible largeur qui permet d’attaquer fort en wave-riding ou en race. Le bulbe sur le nose est vraiment top, en plus d’être jolie, il empêche le nose de planter lors des re-plaques en freestyle et facilite le passage des mousses dans le shore-break. Le nouveau pad grip vraiment bien c’est hyper confort et toutes les finitions ont vraiment step-up, pour moi il y a que du positif sur cette évolution ! ?

Warning

When you practice foil you expose yourself to possible serious risks. A poor mastering of a foil can expose you to cuts and/or serious bodily harm, even death for yourself and possibly others around you.

Foiling should be practiced, in all circumstances, by taking precautions and taking into consideration all that is involved and associated with surf/SUP sports. Remember that a foil is long and has an edge that could cause slicing and is capable of reaching very high speeds. Getting hit by a foil, or hitting another, can have dramatic and highly unwanted consequences.

Always foil far from others, and in waters that are secure and without obstacle.

Always wear a helmet and protective vest that assures floatability. Always wear a full body neoprene wetsuit.

When handling and manipulating a foil be careful not to cut yourself along its edges.

GONG does not accept and declines any and all responsibility in case of accident that implicates a GONG foil. The practicing of this sport and the use of our equipment makes the user fully responsable for his/her actions while being a foil user.
