When you are a beginner you need a light Wing with a wide range of use. With its thinner struts the Wing Plus is very light. This thinner section develops a little less power and a lot of forgiveness in the high range so you don’t get overwhelmed. The Plus can also spin smoothly: IT absorbs the gusts, not your arms!
Seen from the front, the Wing Plus has a little more V than its sisters. This makes it easier to fly. It has less tendency to come upright, and therefore to touch the water, than high performance Wings where this attitude gives more traction. With the Plus, you want simplicity to build up your arms step by step without getting them ripped off.
The hollow is still marked to take off early and make frequent re-launches easier when you start. What’s better than flying with two pump strokes! L’Ours has also blocked this trough in front of the rider for maximum stability in the gust. From the lightest to the strongest wind, the Wing Plus offers a huge but smooth range.
The absence of a window considerably reduces the weight. In the beginning, you will probably use your Wing in light wind. Then you will appreciate every gram gained. The same goes for traveling… It is also a way for us to lower the price of this Wing without reducing the quality of the materials.
As soon as you get used to it, you will feel a light and tolerant Wing, but also reactive to encourage your progress. All you have to do is multiply the flying hours.
L’Ours has placed more volume and added a 6’0 to the range. You can take it even more compact for the same ease of use. The Zuma is, therefore, more responsive while remaining fluid. With generous dimensions, it will remain affordable for a beginning, yet sportive Foiler.
Equipped with good rowing glide thanks to its tight rocker and rounded point nose, its very wide and square tail brings stability in the waiting phase and explosiveness at the takeoff.
In flight the handling is great, the compactness works miracles but without going to extremes. A very pronounced kick tail and chinned rails allow you to fly serenely without being afraid of breaking at the slightest touchdown in the chop or in tight curves.
The SUP/Wing multi-position strap inserts and the Us Rail Boxes for foil attachment allow a multitude of adjustments, and to quickly find the ideal position in SUP as in Wing.
It is the queen of performance accessible in SUP as well as in Wing.
With its 90cm mast, you have all the necessary tolerance for rapid progress. A very short mast makes your first flights easier, but as soon as you fly with a long mast, you can avoid touching the water and therefore falling.
This foil is completely dismountable to adapt to all sports at a lower cost and give you the possibility to replace a damaged part. A complete spare parts catalogue is available, to allow you to make it compatible with multiple supports (surf/SUP/kite), and to explore the full range of use of the foil in every sport and at every level.
Masts, top plate and fuselage are made of aluminium for a contained price. The wings are made of carbon and glass on high density PU foam. With a very high number of layers and compression at very high pressure and temperature, our wings are almost indestructible.
All our wings and stabs have soft “tips”. Their tips are rounded and voluminous to limit the danger. We invite you to be very careful in spite of everything. Also, the trailing edges are blunt so as not to be sharp.
To understand the range, we have four sizes of wings and therefore foils. However, we recommend the use of sizes L, XL and XXLfor the practice of Wingfoil :
The M has a wingspan of 70 cm for a (projected) area of 1258cm2 (1453cm2 developed), and its volume is 2,0L. The surface area is large with a very tolerant profile of 3,0cm thick. Mounted with a 45cm Surf stab of 378cm2 and 0,19L, this foil is suitable for people under 60kg.
The L has a wingspan of 80cm for a (projected) area of 1643cm2 (1926cm2 developed), and its volume is 3,12L. The surface area is large with a very tolerant profile of 3,5cm thick. Mounted with a 45cm stab Surf of 378cm2 and 0,19L, this foil is for people under 75kg.
The XL has a wingspan of 90cm for a (projected) surface area of 1844cm2 (2137cm2 developed), and its volume is 3,60L. The surface area is large with a very tolerant profile of 3,5cm thick. Mounted with a 45cm stab Surf of 378cm2 and 0,19L, this foil is suitable for riders weighing from 75kg to 100kg.
The XXL has a wingspan of 100cm for a (projected) area of 2175cm2 (2487cm2 developed), and its volume is 4,26L. The surface area is large with a very tolerant profile of 3,5cm thick. Mounted with a stab Surf 45cm of 378cm2 and 0,19L, this foil is suitable for riders weighing more than 85kg.

Buy a complete pack and take advantage of 15% OFF of all the items of pack and reduced shipping cost.
Shipping cost are reduced to 70€ instead of 105€.
If we sold this package in a surfshop, it would cost 2930€ (taking into account traditional margins that we should offer to distributers and stores).
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 😉
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:
All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
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.
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.
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.
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 😉
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.
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.
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 email to help you.
You must read the detailed user manual completely before using your foil and 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.
When you practice Foil you expose yoursef to possible serious Risks. A poor mastering of a Foil can expose you to Cuts and/or Serious Bodily Harm, even Death for youself and possibley others around you.
Foiling should be practiced, in all circumstances, by taking precautions and taking into cosideration 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 incrue 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 Neoprane 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 responsability in case of accident that implicates a GONG Foil. The practicing of this sport and the use of our equipment makes the user fully responsible for his/her actions while being a Foil User.
