Description

The HY-WING: an all-round wing for all skill levels with immense wind range and stability. The HY-WING is super easy to handle and still develops a high level of performance. It is the perfect choice for the absolute beginner to those who are currently expanding the horizons of this sport.

KEY FACTS:
> Full traction control
> Wide wind range
> 3 sizes cover almost every wind speed
> For all skill levels
> Easy to learn and very accessible
> Responsive and super durable construction
> Bayonet Valve
> Neutral Handle on the middle strut

Included in delivery: Wing, Pump, Leash, Backpack

The Wing features an extremely balanced profile with just the right amount of power and speed. The compact outline makes it super easy to maneuver. The profile aligns smoothly from tremendous drive to absolute neutrality. Two generously designed windows provide the necessary overview. Three wide, padded handles on the middle strut allow maximum freedom in positioning the hands, so the Wing can be easily operated with one hand.

With the Neutral Handle, a soft loop on the leading edge, the Wing can be depowered with just one hand, perfect for wave riding where you don't need a pull in the Wing. Under the loop is a soft pad that protects the knuckles.

The Leading Edge of the HY-WING is made of super light and high quality Double Diced Dacron and the Canopy material is made of High Density Ripstop. The Fusion Trailing Edge completes the construction at the Leech and additionally increases the durability of the wing.

The clever combination of materials used makes the Wing direct and responsive, yet it remains easy to handle and extremely forgiving.

Setup is a breeze, just inflate and you're done. After the session, the Wing can be folded back up and stored in the included bag to save space.

The HY-WING shows the way from the first Wing attempts to jibes and explosive jumps. An uncomplicated and powerful introduction to the discipline of wing surfing.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT WING EQUIPMENT

There's no question about it, winging is trendy, whether on land or on the water, in the snow or on the ice - the new discipline is easy to learn and incredibly versatile. The equipment is easy to handle and unbeatable in pack size.

After 2 years of developing all components we are happy to start this new sport together with you.

For the selection of the right wing equipment it is important to find the right size of board and wing, similar to windsurfing or kitesurfing. Another important factor is the selection of the right foil. All components have to be brought in line with your own riding ability, body weight and the prevailing conditions.

Sounds complicated at first, but you can easily get oriented in the following 3 categories and make the selection of the individually perfect wing material.

WING SIZE SELECTION

Thanks to the HY-Wing's wide wind range, almost all conditions can be covered with 3 sizes. The design is suitable for beginners, advanced riders as well as those who are currently pushing the limits of the sport.

When selecting the size, you are based on the prevailing wind force, similar to windsurfing or kitesurfing.

The following table associates each size with a wind range:

The figures are based on a wingsurfer with a body weight of 75 kg. Those who are significantly heavier or lighter go for the next larger or smaller size.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT BOARD

When choosing the right board, it is important to consider the following characteristics. Your own riding ability, body weight and the conditions in which it is mainly used.

With the rapidly changing wingboards at the moment, the volume specification in liters should be used as a reference.

Again, there are the following parallels to windsurfing: The heavier the surfer, the larger the liter rating of the board should be. The more advanced the surfer, the smaller the board can be.

Thus, for example, we recommend a beginner with 75 kg a board with at least 110 l volume. An advanced surfer with the same body weight will choose a board with 70-90 liters.

The following table gives a rough classification:

Weight Beginner Intermediate
65 Kg 80 - 100 L 50 - 70 L
75 Kg 100 - 120 L 60 - 90 L
85+ Kg 120 - 160 L 70 - 100 L

The relationship between board size and wind strength is similar. In light winds, a larger board with a stable stance is recommended. This makes it easier to pick up speed and take off. If the wind increases, you can use smaller boards and make a knee or water start with sufficient pressure in the wing.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT FOIL

The third component is the choice of the right foil. The following properties of the foil must be taken into account:

- Surface or size of front and backwing
- Mast length
- Fuselage length

 

Surface of front- and backwing

Similar to an airplane, the wings of the foil determine the lift and speed of the foil. For example, a front wing with a large surface area provides more lift than a wing with a smaller surface area. The size and shape of the front wing is particularly important.

Foil Wing Surf

A wing with a larger profile provides more lift than a smaller one. A narrow profile offers less lift, but flies faster. We recommend beginners to go for larger profiles because the trailing edges are more rounded and therefore safer.

The backwing gives the foil its stability. Its size determines the agility of the foil as well as its speed and acceleration. The efficiency of pumping also depends decisively on the backwing.

In terms of wingsurfing, this means that a larger wing (on the foil) enables take-off even at lower wind speeds. Likewise, a larger wing (on the foil) in combination with a smaller wing allows you to fly.

Considering the level of a wingsurfer, the advanced surfer tends to be able to take off better and earlier with a smaller foil than a beginner.

 

Mast length

In the rapidly developing foil market, there are many variations in mast lengths. Basically, however, the following relationship can be derived.

A shorter mast is particularly suitable for the first wing attempts, since it is easier to control and balance. Also " dropping down " during the ride is less problematic with a short mast than with a longer one.

Once you have learned the handling and feel over the foil, a longer mast again proves more comfortable and offers more room for trimming.

The larger the mast, the larger the area in which it can carry the surfer without getting a stall.

Foil Wing Surf

A longer mast thus also facilitates sailing in waves.

 

Fuselage length

The length of the fuselage influences the stability of the foil and at the same time its forgiving characteristics. The longer the fuselage, the more stable the flight and the more forgiving the foil. A longer fuselage can also generate a bit more lift with the same wing. Especially long fuselages are used for windsurfing. The fuselage for wingsurfing, on the other hand, is somewhat shorter.
