Hi, great review, I didn’t expect an inflatable to be rated so highly. I am a newbie and any thoughts on first Wing Foil board appreciated. By way of background, have windsurfed, surfed and SUP’d for many years. I spent a couple of hours last month at OTC getting up an foiling on a 140 ltr Fanatic with 2000 cm wing. I have a Naish S25 5.3 wing and have been out a few times on a long board SUP. I have a 2020 Fanatic Aero Foil 2000cm ready and waiting to bolt onto my board. I had ordered a… Read more »

Hi Rueben
Thanks a really helpful reply, appreciated, thank you.
To be fair to Gong, so far, customer service and communication over the Christmas period has been very good.
Once the damaged board gets back to them, they have offered three options , refund, replacement or a repair and discount on original price.
I am going to wait and see until they get the board back and then make a choice on the above three options
I appreciate, as always, you get what you pay for.
Thanks for your thoughts, appreciated.
I will keep you updated.
Regards
Jeremy.

i wanted to lean how to foil with a wing but when we are at anchor on a our boat, so inflatable was the way to go. I purchased this board and 5.3naish wing. The leaning curve is steep but I’m progressing. Would love to know your recommended position of the mast in the foil box and how it effects the performance?
Thanks guys

I have learned to wing on this board having windfoiled for 2 years. Am a fan of inflatables and generally happy with the board but would like footstraps so am thinking of adding them as others have done. Have already added extra grip to the front of the board.

Hello Reuben!
Do you think a 100L version of this board will be OK for a capable 80 kg beginner, experienced in paddleboarding, to start wing foiling (no wave surfing, some downwing maybe)?
Or should I go with the 135 L version?
There are rumors they may add footstraps to it.
I’am going to take some lessons with instructor on larger board, so will be more prepared for a smaller board, when it arrives.
The foil will be 2000 or 2140 cm.

Yes, I’m pretty good at standing on narrow boards, 14×26 being my default touring board:)

All inflatables are more sticky to the water, no surprise here.

Thanks again for your thorough reply, it helped me a lot!
