FreeWing comes from a collaboration of innovation partners Starboard and Airush – bringing experience from SUP, Foiling, Windsurfing and Kiting. Our FreeWing collaboration allows us to develop the best products for this exciting new sport!
FreeWing has dual research & development locations – between Cape Town, South Africa and Bangkok, Thailand. FreeWing gets thoroughly tested and developed to perform in an extensive range of conditions – which is why it is such a great all-around wing for wingfoiling & wingsurfing. Steeped in windsurfing and kiteboarding history, the FreeWing concept dates back to before the foiling era. The earliest versions of the wings designed by Jim Drake look remarkably similar to today’s hi-tech wings. From concept to prototype and finally, take off – the FreeWing has a long design history with humble beginnings at Airush HQ in Muizenburg, South Africa. See what our first wing prototype looked like back in 2013 and how far these progressive wind engineers have come over the past 8 years.
