Is there a reason why you shouldn’t buy this wing as an intermediate or advanced rider?
For example, how does it hold up in the surf/behaves in the waves?

Pretty good combination, I have a Starboard generation and 6sqm freewing. Good railgrip plus big fins make the stuff run very well. To engage the rails upwind to maximum, I tried out standing switch – works funny.
Thanks for your insight’s Reuben

When using it with the SUP (shown in the pro video), I was wondering about heeling the board to leeward like windsurfers used to do back in the day when they had the longer displacement boards to use the leeward rail to lengthen the waterline aiding upwind pointing. Maybe the thruster fin setup is the limiting factor for this technique to be viable. Also, a foot strap or two might be helpful.

Looks like it would be a great touring aid either way.

Really inspired to try this! How would this wing compare to the Freewing V1? Thanks Reuben

My dilemma now is whether to go Wing SUP or Wind SUP. I wonder whether there’s more in the WindSUP in terms of maintaining longer interest if not progressing to foiling (no local foiling community), although I do see it could add an extra dimension to touring. As an aside… Read more »

took delivery of a new 6.5 today and tried it an hour later! i have been using Gong wings since starting two years ago. I am by no means an expert – probably a moderate intermediate. I bought this on the strength of your review. As soon as I was up on the board (Gong Lance 5’8) the the qualities of the wing became instantly apparent- getting m on foil was effortless. The pull and power are so much better than any of the wings I have tried before but felt really nice even in the bigger gusts. Wind was… Read more »

I am looking for an extra wing for light wind. Which wing should I get: the Freewing GO 6.5m (newer) or Freewing Air V2 7m (currently cheaper)?
