Description

The Wing has an inflatable structure that is directly in the hands of the rider. Handles control the flight and power generated from it.

The number one asset of the Wing is its smoothness. Much less powerful than a Kite and much lighter than a Windsurf sail, the Wing is easy to use.

Ideal companion to the foil, it is much more reassuring than a Kite and much more manageable than a Windsurf sail.

With its mellow glide, the Wing absorbs the gusts without forcing you to recoil. So, no harness needed because its flexible structure is created to naturally release the excess power.

Ideal with a foil, it requires stronger wind than a Kite, which will always have the advantage of traction more from 4/5 knots. The Wing will need between 10 and 15 knots to really be useful on a foil and will remain super easy, even in 35 knots, where the Kite is often synonymous with taking big risks.

The Wing is great for multiple uses such as:

  • Stand Up Paddle “SUP” (rigid or inflatable)
  • SUPfoil
  • Surfoil
  • Skate
  • Roller Blading
  • Mountain Boarding
  • Anything that slides on the snow
  • Etc.

The Pros of the Wing are clearly identified: simplicity, compactness and lightness which provide unparalleled freedom of movement and the ease of handling. The Wing is ready to fly in 1min flat: no lines to unwind, simply two flexible battens to insert in their sheaths, a few pump strokes and you’re off.

The technology used to make the Wings is very similar to that of our surf Kites. Reinforcements are present on the heavy use zones in correspondence to its different uses.

The shape of the Wing is “self-stabilizing”. Do not imagine controlling it with the force of your hands on a boom: it does not work like that. When you lower your back hand: the Wing will fly flat over your head. You raise it and the Wing goes up. Easy!

Shape

  • Dihedral Shape: Wing self stabilising.
  • Compact and lightweight: easy handling.
  • The profile absorbs the extra power: smooth navigation.
  • Large diameter Leading Edge: maintains the structure.
  • Wide tips for maintaining power but in advanced position which limits wear drag.

Stock Dimensions

  • Leading Edge and inflatable Center Bladder.​
  • 3 grip handles on the leading edge.
  • Handles on the inflatable center blade (the number of handles depends on the wing’s size).
  • A leash attachment.
  • Large diameter screw valve and One Pump Express System: super easy to inflate / deflate at lightning speed.
  • 2 sheaths for intermediate fiberglass struts.
  • Anti Friction Canopy reinforcement in front of the valve.
  • PVC reinforcements 1680D on the tips.

Innovation is at the core of our Boards

The GONG Wings are manufactured in one of the two biggest kite factories in the world using the highest quality standards.

Fabricated with the greatest care. The panels are cut using CNC and entirely assembled and sown by hand by the best artisans in the kite industry.

The materials used are by far the most noble. We demand are look for performance but also endurance and longevity and also materials that have proven themselves.

  • High quality double rip-stop, Teijin T9670 (high stiffness, long lasting performances).
  • Skeleton DP175LL: Leading Edge and tips are built in this fantastic stiff and solid fabric that keeps the wing like a real skeletal structure. Nervousness, stability, durability. (the most rigid of the market and also the most expensive)
  • Bladders TPU 0,1mm : un-failing reliability.

Buying guide

The choice of size (3, 5 or 7m2) will depend on your weight and the strength of the wind in which you want to get into and evolve. Your height does not matter because the ideal angle of the wing is close to 45 °. In a use with a SUPfoil, here is what we recommend:

By changing your usage, you can broaden these ranges of use widely. For example: For mellow riding with a SUP it is great with a very light wind, just like starting out windsurfing, that easy free spirit jut taking back and forth.

Included equipments

  • High quality Wing bag, with thick foam padding and large U shaped opening for no-hassle packing.
  • Rapid bladder repair kit.
  • 2 x fiberglass struts.

Warning:

You must read the detailed user manual completely before using your Wing for the first time.

Be sure to have a full understanding of it. Wings can be dangerous depending on their size and the strength of the wind. You have to check the wind range of your wing so that it corresponds with conditions and your actual skill level.

For the first few sessions, never use your new Wing in its high wind range. Use your Wing in a secure environment. Take the necessary time to learn how to handle the equipment under optimum safety conditions. Never underestimate the traction power of your Wing. Even a beginner’s Wing can develop a pulling force of several hundred kilos depending on its size and the strength of the wind. Do not overestimate your abilities. Misuse can cause serious injury or death to the practitioner or others. Do not use your Wing at sea in offshore winds. Use your Wing equipped with a leash. Be careful to avoid any collision. Be extremely careful if you sail with your Wing and a board equipped with a foil. The manufacturer declines all responsibility for damage or damage caused by improper use of the Wing or carelessness of the user.
