ARMSTRONG

So far this is the best wing I used for SUP foiling the typical slow and small waves we get in San Diego in the Summer. It is very maneuverable, while still providing nice glide and speed. I am now almost able to pump it back to the line-up. I just need a longer mast (72 -> 85 cm) and a bit more practice. I tried it with all 3 shim options: 0°, -2°, and +1°. It's clearly faster with the latter but I have had more success with pumping back out with the -2°. I wouldn't read too much into it for now.

To Watch:

This wing is very maneuverable and very predictable. Although it's only about 600 cm2, it has an amazing low end. I can carve in the waves or jibe at low speed without being worried of it suddenly dropping on me. I can feel when it starts to lose lift and have enough time to react. From a top speed perspective, I reached  26 knots on it with 12m North Mono. Nothing incredible, but fair for a free ride wing.
I currently ride it with an uncut 232 stab and a 0° shim. I use a 72 cm mast, which is too short for kite foiling. I need to try it with a 100cm.

A-WING 5.5m

So far this is the best wing I used for light wind. It feels heavier than the Naish S25 but it is significantly more rigid.

When riding on the HS1550 and with some serious pumping action I can get it on foil with 9-10 mph of wind. It's not easy but it works.

The leading edge still feels a bit too bulky, but nothing compared to the Ozone v1 monster. This wings really feels like the V1.5 of the Ozone WASP V1. The fact that Armstrong and Ozone are both from New Zealand might tell you something...
