WING DESIGN PARAMETERS

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.

  • Powerful yet efficient foil shape for superior lift and forward drive for getting up onto the foil easily

  • Stable/balanced power whilst in flight

  • Tight leech providing excellent lift and control

 

  • Ridiculously stable in neutral mode when surfing a wave

  • Solid struts that don't flex when overpowered

  • Quality comfortable handles with minimal twist

  • No windows or battens means less care required when packing and storing. Windows won't fog or crack. Battens won't snap. Super clean shape with little to no flutter making battens unnecessary.

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.

Cross-Over Wing & SUP Foil

To start wingsurfing, a relatively longer board is ideal for getting you going. Our Slab boards being perfect all rounder.

 

Under 5'8 it's quite difficult to get a sup to paddle into a wave and get up onto the foil. Possible but not ideal for most. With the 6'9 providing ample volume and glide for the heavier rider.  

The versatility to have a board you can wing foil and SUP foil is indeed a bonus, when it's not windy you can be out there enjoying a sup/foil and then when the wind kicks you can switch the paddle for a wing. The perfect one board quiver.

The other bonus of boards of this volume is if when winging the wind drops, you can still float back to the beach.

Floaters

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 short, but  still provide 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.

The ability to still float whilst getting going being the key, for once you go too small, you start being in no mans land. Which is why there's a gap in volume straight down to the sinkers.

Sinkers

When you really want to step it up, you go down.  

With a sinking water start.  Ultra-maneuverable for when you really want start throwing it around and boost it. 

The water start is a surprisingly easy take off to master as long as there’s plenty power in the wing. Once there’s a certain level of mastery and you get onto the smaller boards, it’s a game changer.
