So been prone foiling for a bit now on my axis 750 wing and still trying to link waves have come close a few times, but thinking i want another larger wing to build the quiver. Was looking at the new high aspect wings but not sure which would be best for me @ 90kg ?

Try the S series 900.

If you're proning, the 900 is great with a short fuselage. Are you on the standard fuselage?

I'm 73 kg, I use the 900 which is great. I used to have the 750 but I don't use it anymore, the 900 is faster, easier for steep take off and pump better. But for your size I wonder if the 1000 wouldn't be better, I guess it depends the waves you want to ride (really small I would go 1000, average wave you can go with the 900).

I have the standard fuselage atm, does the short fuselage make a big difference. Yeah that's why i was contemplating the 1000, as i seen allot of small guys to well on the 900

The 90 is the one don't worry about the 100 for the prone . You also want the ultra short fuse as well , the new light weight 2 piece one is out now. The ultra short fuse really loosens up the 90 but you can just use the short . You also want the 400 rear or even the 370. Less is best for speed and manoeuvrability. You might like the 100 at the start on the prone but once you try the 90 after the 100 you probably won't go back.

Re the 90 v 100 on the prone , the 90 is actually faster and easier to turn and pumps just as well . The 100 gives better starts on the Sup & DW or wing ding but does not have the same top end capabilities of the 90. The 101 proto is on the water and again it is more designed at slower and easier starts for DW & Winging , it's a more refined version of the 1020 with easy lift but handles a lot more speed. Still not in production yet but in the works.

I just got a 370 stab to go with my 900, really loosens things up & still pumps like a demon
Also a mate of mine who's about 80kg just got a 100 for small days (already has the 90) & loves them both.

I just bought the 1000 wing and the Ultra short. Jumping from the 102 to the 1000 my pumping has increased significantly. If you were doing doing wing racing and wanted the highest top end would you use the standard fuselage or ultra short? Haven't tested difference yet but interested in anyone's thoughts. Also sounds like a need to get the 900 too for extra speed!

Axis have 3 fuselage . Standard which is really long and getting phased out , the short which is same as NP and other brands and the ultra short which is more for prone .So for the wing Foil short is the one. You also want the 400 rear wing to go with the 1000 & 900 the 440 provides too much lift . There is also a 370 & 340 , the smaller rear wings really loosen up those wide front wings and increase speed . Less is best but you need to get used to it as you loose stability at first but grow into it , same with the ultra short Fuse. They shorten your pumping arc which feels funky at first but when you settle into it you get a ton more drive. Once your ability to start gets better you'll find the 900 is the one but you'll still need the 100 on those low wind days.

Thanks for the tips I really appreciate it. Look forward to testing different combos

On a trip to Morocco I brought with me my 900 (ultrashort fus and 370 rear) and I also got the 660 to try out. Glad I have this 660 as the waves are more powerful than expected (soft for surfing but lot of energy for foiling). Anyway I wasn't sure I would like the 660 as it is supposed to be good for towing in and kiting and since I'm so used to the 900.
Well the first couple waves it felt too loose then I was pushing way harder than ever my turns and I'm able to go really fast without being worried crashing. It definetly harder to pump back out but with a the speed and some technique adjustment I'm able to connect.

I followed Piros's advice on getting the ultra short fuselage with the 370 rear to go with the 1000 wing and it's been unbelievable. I'm pumping on a sup in flat water for over 50 yards easily. Found that in my spot at low tide it's really shallow so I have to use the 45 cm mast but the 1000 is too aggressive and was shooting me out of the water so I use the 1020 with the 45 cm and it's a super easy pump and I can get really far in the flat sections. The less drag on the rear wing, the further you glide, I'm looking forward to that flat rear wing.

Thanks for the info Frenchfoiler. Been riding the 900 in bigger waves lately (4-5ft Hawaiian, NS Oahu) and am really interested in these new wings, as I'd like to be doing more turns. Been trying to decide what size to get. How'd the foil feel when compared to the 750 you used to ride? (not the best to compare with, but I know you used to ride that wing a bunch)

Anyone try the 770 or 880?

Actually I haven't used that much the 750, mostly the 900. But to me the 660 turns way better, you feel very safe, it won't breach so you can push your turns, but more difficult/technical for pumping back out.

I haven't heard of the 770 and 880, looks like you guys in australia have all the latest informations.

Wow, how tough are these Axis wings and the ONE foil board for that matter?
I was wing foiling off the boat on Sunday over at Rottnest Island.
I had a friend with me that is fairly new to foiling so we went around the corner to Porpoise Bay so that if she had trouble staying upwind she would end up on the beach.
For those of you who know Porpoise Bay, there are a few bits of reef here and there, it was also late arvo which made it hard to see but I thought I had it sussed as to where they were.
I was using the 1000 wing and a 5 mtr Duotone, shooting back and forward at 25-35kph when wack the board stopped dead in its tracks and I face-planted over the front.
I was expecting to see a smashed wing or the track mounts ripped out of the board but it appears to be only a few scratches on the front of the wing on one side.
The fuselage also looks fine, I am not too sure but at worst the mast may have a very slight twist to it.
Even if it has I am stoked, with the force that I hit, I was expecting way worse.






It lived
