Hi guys. Can't find the foilwing sizes chart between all the brands.
Have you got the link.
Wondering if the Neil Pryde XL wing would be enough lift to get up on a 4M Naish Wingsurfer in about 15 knot wind.
So far no go on the large foil.
Cheers.

I have no problem at all in 15 knots using an S1020 Axis which is fairly similar in size to the Neil Pryde XL but that is using a 5mtr Duotone.

Yes I use the NP XL in that wind and wing size , I'm ready to drop down to the Large now. Starting to get the low wind starts wired . You'll find once you get better you'll go heaps faster for longer and the real big wings become a handful but for now stick with them and nice chart Tightlines thanks .

Sorry Tightlines. I meant the foiling wings size chart. I want to compare the surface areas of the foiling wings to compare my Neilpryde large against.
The chart is somewhere but having trouble finding it again.

Thanks for your tips again guys. Much appreciated. Cheers.

With the Neil Pryde XL wing and 4m Naish Wingsurfer my guess is that 15kts for some riders will be enough and for other riders (beginners, new to flying any type of sail, heavy weights etc..) will need more wind .. maybe 20kts or a fraction more. If Naish released a 6m Wingsurfer, you would be comfortably flying the NP XL foil in 15kts and potentially even your NP Large foil. I am certain Naish will have at least a 6m Wingsurfer for 2021. The Large windwings in the 6m and plus sizes will definitely allow users to getting going in much lighter winds when combined with the larger foils.

Damn this is getting confusing with wings above and below the board.

Yep there is a lot going on to get going in lighter winds and technique plays a big part.

Obviously folks with windsurfing or kiting experience will have an advantage, however, I think a big part is the pumping of the board, anyone who has done a lot of foil surfing/pumping will get going heaps easier.

Then its just a case of combining the pumping of wing and board.

As Piros said Foils, Boards and Wings are all on that spread sheet, the tabs are on the bottom left though when I view it.

Yep the Neil Pryde XL is up there in its projected size with the rest of the foilwings that are working with the Windwings. The large is considerably smaller.
Looks like the XL wing is the go. Probably for downwind too.

Thanks for this tightlines, really helpful to have this summarized (and yes, the lingo is getting confusing with wings above and below the water, and foils that are hydro and aero ;-)

For the wind wings, there's some mysterious factors that determine low-end capability. Reports I am hearing are that Ozone and FOne have the most power relative to same size of other brands. Those bottom of the range 10's in your chart would seem to agree with that. Design-wise, whether that's from aspect/chord, or stiffness of the assembly, or ??, I dunno. I guess one trade off is that low-end power comes with lower top-end, just like kiting. Another trade-off, for the brands mentioned, is that better capability also comes with quite a bit more $$$$$$.
