Surf Pro L for kitefoil and more

Message par AndersP » lun. sept. 16, 2019 4:36 pm

The Surf M wing is recommended for kitefoil beginners.
The Surf Pro L is about the same area :!:

To me a 1200 Wing with a faster profile than Surf M could be an interesting thing for kitefoiling :D

Fast profile and big area often means a great speedrange.
Which are the aproximate speedranges for kitefoiling with

Surf M
Surf M Pro
Surf L Pro
Pros and cons on each wing?



I would also like to know which stabs that are the fastest
and if they fit on both fuselages.

I'm just guessing that the order of speed is this:

1. Kitestab 40
2. Surfstab 40
3. Kitestab 45
4. Surfstab 45
5. Surfstab 55

And reversed in order of stability 8)

We developed the Kitefoil Freewave with the :

- PRO Front Wing 69 - early lift, thinner leading edge and a faster without losing the low speed control
- Stab 40 cm surf - helps to have a good balance between the control and the speed. It helps to keep a predictable control during cruise and manouvers
- Mast 90 cm - more upwind, more angle and speed.

This is the best advanced option we have so far to meet all the expectation of the kitefoil.

PRO vs CONS FRONT WINGS

Surf M : super early lift, helps pumping and to have a great control at low speed but slow
Surf M Pro : early lift, pumping and low speed control really good but fast
Surf L Pro : more stable, faster but less maneuverable than the Surf M Pro

PRO vs CONS Stabs

1. Kitestab 40 speed +++++ control +
2. Surfstab 40 speed +++ control +++
3. Kitestab 45 speed ++++ control ++
4. Surfstab 45 speed ++ control ++++
5. Surfstab 55 speed + control +++++

I hope it helped for you to have a better understanding of the characteristics of each Front Wing and Stab.

Hello Javier,

the PRO Wing M has a shorter cord and a thinner leading edge, those characteristic helps to improve the top speed of the Wing.

Therefore I would say you can add 5 knots of speed max to your top speed of the Standard M.

If you need anything more specific please write me by email lr@gongsup.com
