Part III Wingsurfer’s Guide Through Progression | How to choose the right wing, foil and board | by Brian Friedmann

5 Mar , 2020  

This is the third and final blog on my Wingsurfers Guide Through Progression. If you missed the two earlier blogs on getting started you can review them here. They will help to give some context on my experience during the early days (funny, just 3 months ago) and lead up to this final blog. Thanks in advance for reviewing and hopefully this will help some of you out that are learning this relatively new sport. Now well into my efforts to become better at winging I’m very happy with the progress to date. As mentioned in previous blogs, it’s a quick learn if you can keep at it. I’ve had the luxury of getting to try a good amount of the F-One Winging lineup and finding the right gear for the right conditions is helpful and makes the learning curve much quicker. With the right gear you’ll spend way more time up foiling and avoid getting exhausted trying to get up or stay up on foil. After a few months of practice, I can now competently get up on foil, stay upwind, tack, jibe, surf swell and have a great time out on the water doing it. Throughout this time, I started on larger boards, foils and wings and moved to smaller ones as my skills progressed. Here’s what I found works well for me now.

How it Works: DIABLO Bridles

7 Dec , 2015  

The first time you use a RAM Air Kite, the DIABLO in our case, it can be pretty intimidating, with all those bridles everywhere, 4 full lines total A + B + C + Brakes (D), the speed system, etc… Here is a clear schema of the whole setup, how it works and what to do if the Diablo does not fly properly because one line has stretched too much.
