At SMIK, we've been taking our time in developing our wings, to make sure that we're not putting anything sub-par onto the market. We're pretty much there and really happy with how they feel now.
Having tested the competitors' wings, we're confident to have the best performing, least hassle, most durable wing available for flat water and surf usage.
Foil Wing Boards
Cross-Over Wing & SUP Foil
To start wingsurfing, a relatively longer board is ideal for getting you going. Our Slab boards being perfect for that.
Obviously depending on your weight but for most riders, the Slab 6'6" x 29" and 106 L should get you up and going with plenty of stability even for the heavier rider.
The versatility to have a board you can wing foil and SUP foil is indeed a bonus.
As your skillset improves, you'll be wanting to move down to a shorter board. Not as versatile as the cross-over foil Slabs, wing-specific boards are a fair bit shorter at around 5'3" x 26" and 93L which still provides enough volume to stand on to get up and going, but are a little harder to lift and start flying.
But once you get up and going, the shorter lengths with less swing weight are a joy to fly and surf.
As our own skillset evolves to be able to waterstart, these sizes will eventually have to be made smaller yet again.
