Going upwind with a wing surfer, without a foil / How to video

In this video we’re going to explain the basics of winging upwind, and what you need to do to make your wing surfer go upwind when using an iSUP and a composite board…

I like the look of the new Naish wing. Hope it’s got improved performance. Looks potentially a good addition for the season if I can save the £££. And of course my version of a drift stopper is ready to try.

Need a few more sessions to get better at this.

P. S the ‘walk of shame’ with a wing and an isup is one horrible workout hehehehe
