The combination of wave riding and freestyle in an accessible shape.

Presentation

With its very short shape and comfortable nose, the Mint is extremely versatile.

It could be placed halfway between a Flint that rocks in the light wind and a Lemon that kills in wave riding. But the Mint is much more than that: it’s the meeting of performance and ease. Everything is easy on the Mint.

Its round nose makes it the perfect compromise between a board that has a lot of lift and a radical board. You get just the right amount of comfort to feel at ease. The round nose reduces inertia and wind resistance. The Mint is therefore very lively. And needless to say that a board of less than 5′ is necessarily very reactive!!!

Its wide tail allows you to take off immediately. Coupled with the double concave under the nose which guides the board, it is a light wing machine. And with a slightly narrower main beam, the friction with the water is limited which facilitates take offs even more.

The secret resides in its tail: it releases water without restraint. Directly inspired by the Lethal’s magic tail, the Mint 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 stabler and pops harder.

This combination of reactivity and ease of use is ideal for freestyle. The Mint will be much more radical than a Flint, but without being as extreme as a Kube or a Lemon. Moves don’t need to be perfectly executed for a smooth landing. The Mint absorbs many of your mistakes.

In waves, it’s the board which will do everything chill, but with a lot of dynamism if you require it. This small board offers no inertia in surf: you are directly in contact with the foil and the wave. Amazing.

When jumping, it is a small reactive board which offers a very comfortable landing surface. You can really nailevery landing without fear of falling. A board that gives you confidence without being bulky, it certainly is the best compromise.

You don’t need to be a world champion to shine on the Mint: you’ll be able to do it all 😉

RADAR GONG WING FOIL BOARD MINT FSP PRO

Shape

Even though this board has been shortened, you still have plenty of width to facilitate riding, especially at the nose, with this magnificent smooth round nose which is the perfect compromise between performance and comfort. This is the Mint’s biggest attribute.

It is thinner than its sisters, which gives a great sense of control.

The new hull shape with a double concave nose softens the touchdowns by dissipating the energy and guiding the board in the right direction before take-off. The Mint is smooth, easy and stiff.

 

Its very full tail coupled with the reduction of its beam boosts take-off. The facets on the rails allow you to fly serenely without fear of braking hard at the slightest touchdown on chop or in tight curves.

The inherited tail from the Lethal is a reference in terms of flow management before take-off. Your board will no longer stick before flying. It is truly free, this is a great feeling but also very performant. And looks good in the air.

The rails are full for greater lateral stability.

The flat deck optimises control and the feel is right in the action.

The double concave under the nose dissipates shock when landing and channels the flow to fly earlier.

 

Equipments

The set of footstraps is offered with the board. Comfortable and light, they offer perfect support for your feet even in the craziest tricks. At the front, the V-shaped footstrap perfectly centers the foot on the board. The position is thus more natural and allows direct and precise control in maneuvers.

The multi-position straps inserts and the US foil fixing rails allow a multitude of adjustments and allow you to quickly find your ideal position.

The integral and high-end 5mm thick Diamond pad provides maximum grip and comfort when sailing, while protecting the board from shocks.

 

 

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

 

Construction

These boards are equipped with our innovative and high-end technology called FSP Pro. This full-carbon full sandwich PVC 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 PVC forms a 3mm hydrophobic shell over the whole board. And the carbon fiber that covers the entire board boosts its performance. It is clearly much more reactive without being fragile.

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.

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.
  • Or you know how to control a foil well.
  • Or you already have a significant number of flight hours with a wing.

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

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

For What?

The Mint will perfectly cover the light wind, freeride, freestyle and wave riding programs in great comfort and smoothness.

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.

Great and easy to surf, same for tricks, and awesome in jumps, it’s also a board that loves to go fast.

What Size?

 

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR GONG WING FOIL BOARD MINT FSP PRO

The Mint is a high performance board in wing. 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 70kg + 10 = 80L to float. This means that with 80L 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 70kg = 70L to float. This means that with 70L my board will sink lightly and I will have to be precise and sporty at each start.

 

Sinker

Your weight -30 = volume, you will have to do water starts by submerging your board: it’s very technical, very physical and you will lose part of the low wind range. You also need depth in the water, which can be frustrating. The performance gain is debatable depending on your level, but the gain in feeling and reactivity is interesting for some.

  • Example: I weigh 70kg – 10 = 40L to use my board in sinker mode. This means that with 65L and less, my board will totally sink and I should do a real wakeboard type water start. In this case, less volume often makes things easier because you sink the board without worrying about putting your feet on top of it. A small board will have less buoyancy, so it will be easier to put on and slower to take off. Its stability qualities on the surface remain the same underwater.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WING BOARD BAG FOR YOUR GONG WING FOIL BOARD MINT FSP PRO

Understanding the GONG range?

We can sum up very simply the concepts of each board in our range:

  • HIPE and HIPE V2: the inflatable with 95% of the performance of the stiff. Ideal for beginners and much more!
  • MOB 2TASTE: three sports in one board: SUP, SUP foil and wing.
  • ZUMA: the easy rigid board in SUP foil and wing, and with good performances.
  • LANCE: the compact Zuma, very stable sideways, ideal for wing.
  • FLINT: high performances in SUP foil, top in wing because it is simple and efficient in light wind.
  • KUBE: pure wing freestyle board. Minimum length for maximum rotation.
  • MINT: compact without the difficulty with its round nose, but excellent performances.
  • LEMON: maximum reactivity and liveliness, while maintaining lateral stability.
  • LETHAL: Absolute radicality among volume boards.

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

  • CATCH KITE FOIL: it works as well in kite as in wing with a bigger wing to have power.
  • MATATA SURF FOIL: asymmetrical straps and minimum length to dare everything.
  • LETHAL SURF FOIL: asymmetrical straps and minimum width to dare everything.

Which quiver?

The Mint 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 Mint in your size, for comfort. And another board two volumes below. For example, a Mint in your size and a Lethal two sizes smaller. This is the wave riding quiver by excellence.

The Mint 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.

 

For the intermediate riders

In the X-Over range: super easy and efficient foils at low speed:

  • M for the under 65kg and all wind conditions
  • L for the under 75kg and all wind conditions.
  • XL for the under 85kg and all wind conditions.
  • XXL for the riders above 85kg and wind under 15 knots.

 

For the experienced riders

In the Curve range: high performance and easy foils that love curves:

  • M for the under 65kg and wind above 15 knots.
  • M-T for the under 70kg and wind above 12 knots.
  • L for the under 75kg and wind above 10 knots.
  • L-T for the under 90kg and wind above 15 knots.
  • XLS for riders above 70kg and wind above 12 knots.
  • XL for riders above 75kg and all wind conditions, or for light riders in light wind.
  • XL-T for riders above 85kg and wind below 15 knots.
  • XXL for riders over 95kg in light wind.

 

For the pros

In the Fluid or Veloce range: very high performance and fast foils:

  • M for the under 65kg and wind above 15 knots.
  • Fluid LS and Veloce M-T for the under 70kg and wind above 12 knots.
  • L for the under 75kg and wind above 10 knots.
  • Fluid XLS and Veloce L-T for the under 90kg and wind above 15 knots.
  • XL for riders above 75kg and all wind conditions, or for light riders in light wind.
  • Fluid XXLS and Veloce XL-T for riders above 85kg and wind below 15 knots.
  • XXL for riders above 95kg in the light wind.

 

The size of the front wing conditions the speed/lift ratio. The smaller the front wing, the faster you will go but the more uncomfortable you will be at low speed.

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.

Thus the X-Over Stabs are slower than the Fluid Stabs or the Veloce Stabs, but are much more load-bearing, and therefore effective at low speed.

Which foil mast?

Contrary to kite foiling, in wing foiling, you don’t have much opposition to the wing because it pulls gently. So, you don’t put a lot of upwind angle to the mast. So, mastering a big mast in 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 wacky. Everything is calmer. So, don’t be afraid of a long 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.

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).

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.

  2. Peter Lierman

    Ordered on Monday, delivery on Thursday… Respect too Gong!!!

  3. Corentin

    Une Dinguerie 🔥🔥🔥!Elle fait tout bien: ça décolle vite, hyper maniable en surf, facile dans les manœuvres… je saute pas encore en wing…mais ça demande qu à décoller 😉 next step 🙏

  4. Margot

    Je l’ai ridé en 4’6 (65L) et 4’10 (95L) pour 1m70 65kg (avant les fêtes et la chandeleur 😆 )

    Cette planche fait partie de mes préférées. Cette année, les planches ce sont léthalisés (inspiration du tail magique de la Lethal).

    La planche décolle effectivement plus tôt que la 2021 dû à une meilleure glisse en surface, mais pour le coup je la trouve aussi plus sensible, à volume équivalent, à genoux. Elle est plus épaisse, on est donc plus haut sur l’eau avec des facettes (les côtés latéraux) plus prononcées. La 2022 pardonne un peu plus les touchettes que la 2021.

    A 65L pour +-65kg, il ne faut rester bien longtemps à genoux au risque que ça devienne plus rodéo, notamment dans les vagues. Attention à ne pas trop basculer en avant. Il faut vraiment trouver sont point d’équilibre. C’est primordial pour ce volume. Il faut être rapide pour se mettre débout puis décoller. Une fois en vol, c’est un régal :mrgreen: Surtout dans les vagues dû à sa compacité.

    J’ai pu tester également la 4’10, qui pour le coup, pour mon gabarit, est trèèèèès confortable. C’est volumineux mais pas dérangeant encore une fois, dû au fait qu’elle soit compacte ! Et pour moi c’est sont gros point fort !

    Pour des conditions flat, voir petit clapots, je garderai personnellement la 4’6
    Pour des conditions en général agitées et/ou avec de la houle = je garderai la 4’8 pour garder un certain confort pour remonter vite sur la planche et sortir rapidement des zones à ne pas être 😆

  5. Gaetan

    Petit retour de session du week-end en Mint 4’10 qui m’a vraiment aidé dans des conditions un peu compliqué!

    Condition du test 30nds et surtoilé en 4m pour mes 80kg, pas mal de vagues et houle et cette Mint m’a vraiment facilité le travail!!! C’est exactement le type de session qui m’a fait choisir cette planche, super stable pour remonter dessus même à certains moments ou ça bougeait beaucoup avec pas mal de mousse.
    Ce coup-ci je ne me suis pas fatigué à essayer de monter sur la board mais juste à me gaver 😈 . Son shape bien compact en vague est vraiment sympa, super joueur en l’air.

  6. Glen56

    J’ai pris la MINT 5’0 suite à mon apprentissage en ZUMA 6’6 (80kg).. Transition/évolution parfaite ! Je recommande +++

  7. Sébastien

    J’utilise la mint 4’6 pour 65kg et c’est parfait pour un confirmé. J’aime sa largeur qui me simplifie les départs et les réceptions de saut et elle fait très bien le travail en wave également.

  8. Michael

    I have to apologize! I have always thought that the tail shape does not really matter because the board does not glide anyway….

    Then I watched a friend pumping the other day, and in low wind he got his board (not a GONG) with short pump strokes to glide properly, and then he took off.

    With my 2021 110l MINT no chance: best to compare to a bathing hippo, I tried to imitate Balz Müller by pumping wing and board. But taking off with the board only works with enough pressure in the wing, whereby I always came very steeply on the foil – I did not have to glide even then.

    This did not bother me the whole season. Little wind – I simply screwed on the 2500qcm front wing.

    Today I tried my new 2022 4.10 MINT, which according to the advertising department has 30% less drag… wherever this number comes from (from a flow channel?).

    First impression when climbing on it:
    It carries my 85kg effortlessly even in a thick winter neo. Actually, not much difference from the wider 110. Later, in the chaotic waves of the Baltic Sea, kneeling was something to get used to, but once I stood – no worries 😉 .

    By the way, the “swingweight” is not only noticeable in the gybes and tacks: when changing feet, the maneuver becomes much more unstable due to the lack of inertial mass. It’s like having a smaller foil. But after the 5th time, this was no longer an issue!

    But the real highlight was the planing!
    Every pumping motion is immediately converted into propulsion!

    The new board glides over the water as if it were soap. I had to pump so significantly less … euphoric I would definitely sign the 30%, if not increase!

    I am now excited for the next duel with my pumping friend. I will fly away 😬.

    Premier essai de ma nouvelle Mint 5.2 modèle 2022 🤩🔥
    Le flotteur est très stable pour mon gabarit de 95kg aussi bien à genoux que debout même avec peu de vent.
    Le décollage est efficace, le flotteur étant court il vaut mieux privilégier le pumping sur le foil pour le démarrage.
    En vol c’est le top, le flotteur est bien court, les straps bien centrés, le pads confortable.
    La planche est maniable, on encaisse bien les surventes sans se faire surprendre.
    Un vrai régal !

    La petite nouvelle pour parfaire les transitions : une mint v2 5.2 120l qui fera probablement ces premiers bords à mazerolles et m’accompagnera un bon moment en mer. Merci à marion pour ces conseils hier au shop ! La suite après les premières nav. Bon ride !

    Bon , bilan du passage de la hipe 5.3 à cette Mint 4.8 ( 65kgs): enthousiaste de ouf! La hipe est une bonne planche mais là c’est un autre monde, on a tellement plus d’information sous les pieds, tout est plus facile, sauf bien-sûr être a genoux dans le clapot mais franchement je pensais plus galérer. Déjà premier bord ça a été instantané, tout est plus naturel, plus vif, et quel ressentis ! Vraiment topissime ! J’ai même pu passer mes premiers vrai jibe en l’air, et naviguer toeside alors que je n’y arrivais pas en hipe. J’ai eu des moments de mou aussi et elle prend très vite de la vitesse, le pompage et le décollage se déroule à merveille ! Conquis de chez conquis 😁
