Maybe not the rave reviews I was expecting, but very interesting and informative and great looking boards.
I’ve got the 7ft Wingboard waiting for my foil to arrive and can’t wait to try it.
I’ve winged on my sups/windsups. I’ve paddled a friend’s 6ft fanatic sky wing so looking forward to getting out there.

It was a good and interesting review with loads of info and your ratings above show you liked them, but I guess I’m used to you really raving about how good the Starboards usually are, and you seemed more conservative on these, maybe with it being more of a comparison from one to the other.

Interesting review chaps . looking at Will’s riding I can only assume he was wishing he was on a smoother foil . His Pitch was up and down like a yoyo. TBH its all about the foil in my opinion , the boards make such a small difference . More marketing and aesthetic to the layman to wade through.

Yes, the foils did take a bit of getting used to which is why we have been discussing riding a standard foil when reviewing a board to be able to get better feedback without having to get used to a foil set up (see comments above). The foil is so important when up and riding you are right but I’m beginning to feel more and more that we discount the boards design – particularly when people are learning and it has more interaction with the water. Theres a lot of design feature that can help with first flights. Exciting times!

Excellent review, It has been so hard to find anything about the SB Wingboards online. As a fan of the brand from my windsurfing, I tend to trust SB’s deep tendencies towards R&D and not needing to follow the market trends.. that said, with the Wingboards they have gone more long and more narrow as compared to other wing boards.. generally.. Yes, shorter then the SUP being compared to here, but longer and narrower than other pure wing boards. I’d love to get other input on that.. My guess is that the target market for the longer SB boards is… Read more »
