Hey Andy - curious as to what windspeeds you've had luck in foiling - I think I saw somewhere you have used the infinity 84 wing and the sailworks and naish foil sails.
How low did you go? Very Happy

So just how light are you able to get out in?

Getting going in 12-15 mph winds is reasonably easy for just about anyone on just about any foil/board combo. Getting going in less wind than that sta ...

Yes, I like to rig a smaller sail but baggy with tons of pop and power for most anything freestyle oriented. The small size helps to move it around, and the bagginess gives you the juice that you nee ...

Time (and/or lessons and advice) will probably be the best contributor to your success in lighter winds at this point. Next will be a more dedicated board, and finally a dedicated sail. This is as l ...
