The must in wave riding without concession.

Presentation

The Lethal is the most radical wave riding board in wing foiling.

Tightening turns, hitting the lip, going for big airs has never been more intuitive than with the Lethal. It has closed the gap with surf foiling. Wrapping every turn, playing with whitewater, landing clean. The Lethal is all about committed surfing.

In jumps and tricks, we have a minimalist board that allows the craziest moves. It’s up to you to set the tone: the Lethal will follow! Landings make you pop out again towards the next trick.

The science that propels this shape lies in the flow. Its narrow shape pushes very little water, preferring to channel it. But its secret lies above all in its tail: it releases water without restraint. So the board takes off 2 knots earlier. And that’s a big difference because you don’t have to overpower or exhaust yourself pumping. As a result we dare to try more things and progress faster.

This new shape is even more extreme to satisfy the most demanding riders. Ultimate finesse for a wing board and a new volume distribution for more control/forgiveness that make the Lethal our most suitable board for extreme carves and pure wave riding.

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, all pure waveriders will find their dream board.

This is the wave board for the pros !

Shape

A narrow board, with a magic tail: the recipe for instant flights.

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 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. 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 Lethal 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.

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 good level because the Lethal is very demanding.

With bigger volumes it is easy, but if you take a volume adapted to your weight, keeping balance on your knees in the chop will not be easy. So, you also need to be in good physical shape to be reactive.

This is clearly the board for those who want to go to reach the maximum potential in wing foiling.

For What?

The Lethal is a pure wave riding board.

And because it is narrow, it is comfortable in all levels of performance, including the top speed because the high speed control is fantastic.

Ideal for surfing and perfect in jumps, it is 100% high performance.

What Size?

The Lethal is the ultimate wing board. But by playing on the volumes, we can adapt it to our 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 Lethal 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 make it sink 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.

How to choose the size of the board bag for my Wing Foil Board Lethal FSP Pro?

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 Cruzader Strapless: the strapless inflatable board with 95% of the performance of a rigid  board with an ultra specialized shape, ideal for light wind winging and chilled out SUP foiling.
  • HIPE Cruzader strapped : the inflatable board with 95% of the performance of a rigid  board with an ultra specialized shape, for the highest performance in light wind winging.
  • 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 Lethal is self-sufficient in established wind or generous volumes. You can complete the Lethal with a Cruzader for example or a typical freestyle board like the Kube.

But here we speak of extreme luxury…

The Lethal 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.

  • XXL for those under 95kg in winds under 6/8 knots or the bigger riders in winds less than 12 knots.
  • 3XL for everyone in the very light wind and the bigger riders in winds under 10 knots.

At this level, everyone can adapt their equipment to their needs. Just remember that the wingspan is a point to take into consideration when riding high aspect ratios. 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. This is why even the pros do not necessarily ride in high aspect ratios!

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 you’ll be penalized in handling and top speed.


Which Stab?

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 at high speed 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. This is why we have named them S M L XL like the front wings so that you can pair them easily. Creating an imbalance brings no benefit except the illusion of better glide.

Thus the X-Over stabs are slower than the Fluid or Veloce stabs, but are much more lifty, and therefore effective at low speed or with a large front wing (for beginners for example). The Curve stab is at the border of these two worlds and the Freestyle stab is 100% dedicated to radical moves.

In the X-Over range: super easy and effective stabs from low speeds to progress smoothly:

  • L 44 for those under 75kg and for everyone in winds above 15 knots.
  • XL 48 for those over 75kg and for everyone in winds below 20 knots.

In the Curve range: very simple stabs that love beautiful curves, with a stable and smooth glide:

  • S 36 for those under 65kg and for everyone in winds over 25 knots.
  • M 39 for those under 75kg and for everyone in winds over 20 knots.
  • L 43 for those under 85kg and for everyone in winds above 15 knots.
  • XL 46 for those over 95kg and for everyone in winds of less than 20 knots.

In the Fluid H range: stabs with a crazy glide for a radical drive but easy and relatively fast:

  • S 38 for those under 65kg and for everyone in winds over 25 knots.
  • M 42 for those under 75kg and for everyone in winds above 18 knots.
  • L 45 for those under 85kg and for everyone in winds above 12 knots.
  • XL 47 for those over 95kg and for everyone in winds below 20 knots.
  • XXL 49 for everyone in very light winds and bigger people in winds below 12 knots.

In the Veloce H range: the fast stabs dedicated to high speeds which are off your mind when riding:

  • S 36 for those under 65kg and for everyone in winds over 25 knots.
  • M 40 for those under 75kg and for everyone in winds above 20 knots.
  • L 44 for those under 85kg and for everyone in winds above 15 knots.
  • XL 47 for those over 95kg and for everyone in winds below 20 knots.

In the Freestyle range: stabs totally dedicated to tricks with a psycho pop and tight curves:

  • S 39 for those under 65kg and for everyone in winds over 25 knots.
  • M 41 for those under 75kg and for everyone in winds over 20 knots.
  • L 44 for those under 85kg and for everyone in winds above 15 knots.
  • XL 46 for those over 95kg and for everyone in winds of less than 20 knots.

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 Lethal, 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).

How to place and adjust your straps?

Pricing

GONG WING FOIL BOARD LETHAL FSP PRO: from 899€

  • We make quality products. We are not “low cost”.
  • We sell simply without an intermediary thanks to the internet: direct from shaper to surfer.
  • If we sold this board in a surf shop, it would cost 2249€ (taking into account traditional margins that we should offer to distributers and stores).

 

Shipping

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.

 

For each situation, contact us by our contact form to help you.

  1. Stéphane

    Encore une session magique en wing !
    En Lethal 45L : hyper maniable et réactive
    Et avec my little Fluid MH que je continue à adorer, accessible même par vent fort et so fluide en freefly
    Du vrai gros plaisir …même par 12 degrés et 40 knots de mistral !
    So cool

  2. Olive

    Petit retour sur la lethal 4’10/85l.
    Moi je fais 70 kg, niveau tack.
    Je cherchais une lemon mais j ai pas trouvé, alors j ai pris une lethal ! Je regrette vraiment pas mon choix ! Bien sûr c est un peu instable a genou mais la glisse est fabuleuse !
    Et dans les manoeuvres c est un régal, connecté au foil !! La faible largeur permet de vraiment prendre de l’angle, l’impression d etre sur un surf !!
    Donc planche très accessible et qui va booster mon niveau ! Objectif: flaka !

  3. lba (verified owner)

    Passage sur une Lethal 5’1 après la Mint 5’4, niveau intermédiaire -> changement en douceur et pour le meilleur : la Lethal décolle facilement, et surtout le bulbe est un vrai game changer et permet de rebondir et repartir immédiatement.

  4. lou.thouin

    Cette board est génial, en surf elle est super maniable et en freestyle elle est super efficace sur les réception le “repop” ce fait tout seul !!

  5. Max

    Voici la machine à take-off!!! 12 nœuds, Neutra 2023 4.5, sans même pomper la wing… quatre coups bien placés du pied avant pour faire rebondir le nose et voilà, c’est parti !! décol immédiate!!! ??

  6. Tien Tran

    retour sur une semaine de navigation avec ma nouvelle lethal 2023 65l.
    Rider 70kg sans combi.
    Test en Neutra 2023 4-5m et véloce MH 750
    Tout d’abord la planche est magnifique, Le nouveau pad est vraiment super agréable et hyper qualitatif.?
    Les nouveaux straps 2023 sont plus rigides, le pied ne bouge pas une fois chaussé (le nouveau pad doit aider également ) les changements pied se font instinctivement sans jamais taper dans le strap?
    L’ensemble est bien rigide et très léger.
    Le système SCS présent sur la nouvelle gamme est un petit gain de temps mais c’est tellement confortable de monter son foil en 2 temps 3 mouvements ?(on devient faignant ?)
    J’ai d’ailleurs remarqué qu’avec le nouveau box j’ai reculé d’un centimetre mon réglage par rapport au modèle 2022 pour avoir les mêmes sensations
    A genoux elle est très étroite mais rien d’insurmontable, le bulbe au nose de la planche est une vraie révélation, elle apporte un confort assez dingue, je l’a situerait entre une hipe pro 4.6 et une lemon 4.6 en terme d’équilibre.
    J’avais eu l’occasion de tester la LETHAL 2022 et j’avais été dérangé a cause du faite qu’elle basculait trop dans le light
    Premier décollage et tout de suite on sent bien que la planche glisse, glisse et glisse! Idéal pour les frontwing H.
    La LETHAL ne colle pas du tout à l’eau comme pouvait faire mon ancienne lemon. J’ai l’impression d’avoir encore gagné en plage basse grâce à sa glisse irréprochable.
    Dans les surfs, on est plus proche du foil donc plus précis, la faible largeur de la LETHAL rend les touchettes inodores.
    On se rapproche des sensations du surf foil.?
    Dans les sauts (simple et Riley) la planche repop immédiatement en réception. Du pur plaisir à venir. ??
    Tout ce que je pouvais reprocher au modèle 2022 à été corrigé et amélioré ? on se rapproche de la planche parfaite.?
    J’en fais ma planche de tout les jours couplé a ma hipe pro 4.6 pour les vacances et les road trips.
    Bravo à la team gong pour ce magnifique travail. J’ai un vrai bijoux sous les pieds.???

  7. Stephane

    Test de la lethal 2023 45 litres !
    J’appréhendais qd même un peu le passage en wingfoil d’une board Lethal de 80L 2022 à 45 litres 2023.
    Ça passe très bien finalement ,-)
    Mais je n’ai qd même gardé la 80L pour petit temps !
    C’est un petit modèle, très maniable, poids plume qui ne sent casi plus dans les sauts notamment. Beaucoup moins l’effet de balancier d’une plus grosse planche de wing.
    Pont rabaissé top. Effet bulbe à l’avant. Ça fend l’air…et l’eau a toute allure.
    Côté straps et pads, on colle à la board …même en chaussons neoprene.
    Testée avec FLUID HM 1000cm2 et plus de 20 knots à 30 knots en 5m2 puis 4m2. Je fais 84 kg. Top combo ! Gros plaisirs
    Merci GONG Galaxy #gongfoil #wingfoil #GONGSurfboard
    Décolage nickel dans un peu plus de 20 knots : Je coule la board en me mettant à genoux (je crochette le strap de derrière avec les orteils pour éviter que la board ne remonte hors de l’eau..si je la mets trop verticale) et je prends la wing à 45 degré (en ayant la board casi vent arrière), les 2 mains sur les 2 poignées direct.
    Dès 20 knots, plus de craintes de ne pas arriver à démarrer.
    Dans les molles, la board coule…jusqu’à la taille qd même..donc il faut bien gérer l’assiette de la board pour la faire remonter en surface en qq coups de pomping. Plus physique donc pour un retour sans vent ! Vigilance donc.

  8. Frédéric Huet

    Retour sur la Lethal 4’10 85L 2023.
    Elle marche grave ?. C’est vraiment ce que je recherchais depuis plusieurs mois. Je commençais à regarder vers une 80L pour plus de radicalité (plus étroite pour partir plus vite tourner plus fort et plus d’agilité sur les sauts et les surfs) mais j’étais frileux compte tenu de mon poids 87kg et de mon niveau… et j’ai bien fait d’attendre en découvrant cette gamme 2023 avec plus de tailles ?…et une 85L.
    Je suis passé depuis 1an,en mixant à différentes périodes, de par les tests et planches perso, Lethal 95L Hipe Pro 95L Lemon 95L Lemon 58L Lemon 45L…? à maintenant cette Lethal 2023 85L.
    Ce qui ressort pour moi le plus c’est qu’elle est étroite (59cm) moins volumineuse et stable malgré tout et cela apporte un vrai plus, ça a clairement booster mon niveau. ? merci GONG Galaxy.
    Tout d’abord dans le départ en vol ça pousse moins d’eau elle glisse plus, j’ai plus de mini qu’avec la Lemon 95L. En navigation au près par exemple on peut prendre beaucoup d’angle sans toucher l’eau (vs une Lemon en 67cm par exemple) ce qui en fait une super planche pour se tirer la bourre ou se replacer en conditions surf, idem dans les turns dans les vagues on peut rider beaucoup plus radicalement, et là les tips du foil sortent +++.
    Le bulbe à l’avant est top ça permet de moins enfourner en cas de touchette ça rebondit. Du coup au près c’est top et en réception de saut c’est plus facile, ça apporte de la stabilité.
    A l’arrêt à genoux (vs une Lemon 95L 67cm de large) ça demande plus de précautions c’est clairement moins stable (10L de moins aussi ?) mais une fois de l’air dans la wing c’est kiff kiff, il faut baisser son centre de gravité et le tour est joué (les épaules dans les genoux).Une fois debout l’arrière coule bien plus mais ça reste étonnamment stable comme un plan anti dérive, néanmoins je ne peux encore changer de bord sans tomber ? sans voler chose que j’arrivais à faire avec la Lemon 95. Par contre ça part plus vite sans être plus technique, elle glisse plus on peut pomper plus facilement sur les jambes (technique du bouchon), ce qui compense grandement, les départs en switch sont du coup bien plus simple.
    Ses proportions longueur largeur font qu’on a l’impression de rider une planche plus longue au départ visuellement (pourtant 4’10 vs 5’0) sans pourtant autant que ce soit encombrant au contraire.
    En saut c’est du caviar elle prend bien moins le vent en appel et en l’air, ça tourne vite et fort, le bulbe sur le nose aide à réplaquer et repartir au plus vite.
    Pour moi c’est le compromis idéal entre mania et facilité on ne coule pas en réception et on est stable pour repartir sans miserer.
    Une planche moins volumineuse comme mes Lemon 45L ou 58L sont tops en therme de mania mais en réception clairement moins facile et elles demandent une énergie folle ou un niveau que je n’ai pas de mes 42ans et 87kg surtout dans le chantier.
    Je dirai aussi qu’elle semble beaucoup plus vive sous les pieds le feeling est très direct elle obéit aux doigts (pieds) et à l’œil ?. Je ne sais pas si ça vient du pad plus ferme des straps plus précis ou du pont abaissé mais c’est plus précis. Associé à un mat HM 85 et une Ypra S M ça dégomme ?.
    C’est pour moi la planche unique à tout faire de 12nds à 40nds et +, même si elle demande un petit niveau (bientôt 3ans de wing pr ~100sessions par an)
    Enfin les foostraps sont plus précis ainsi que le pad plus ferme, le système scs (connection mat/planche) facilite la vie ?.

  9. Filippo

    First test lethal 4.8. 75 LT, 4.5 neutra, 16/18 knots, flat. Great feeling since the first fly. Light and lively under feet.

  10. François

    Grosse magie cette lethal 2023 4’10 85litres ??
    A peine 5.3 kg à la pesée, pour une planche de série c’est juste fantastique.
    De plus elle est vraiment superbe et le nouveau shape est splendide.
    Bravo pour le design, et et les nouvelles modifications comme les rails verticaux , ça sent clairement l’accélération pour le départ au planning..
    Bref j’ai hâte de l’essayer

  11. Melvin

    J’ai l’occasion de tester la nouvelle Lethal 4’6, 65L. Première mise à l’eau, on ressent directement qu’elle est plus stable à l’arrêt que l’ancienne génération, grâce au bulbe sur le nose et aux rails plus verticaux. En plus le décollage est encore plus rapide :rocket:
    Dans les vagues la finesse de la planche permet de serrer davantage les courbes, on peut attaquer très fort en carving! En réception de saut je trouve que le bulbe à l’avant permet de rebondir et de re-décoller pour rapidement. On gagne en confort et en efficacité, c’est parfait! :heart_eyes:

    Une nouvelle version très réussie, plus radicale en vol tout en étant plus facile avant le décollage. C’est la planche référence pour les vagues.
    En plus, nouveau design est épuré et classe, j’adore.

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.
