Reo’s first taste of the WASP V1

Reo Stevens here making his first attempt at Wing foiling look like a walk in the park…

Reo Stevens totally nailing his first session on the WASP v1 – ozonekites.com/products/wings/wasp-v1/

“DISCLAIMER: I have grown up doing wind sports – windsurfing since I was 8, and kiting since I was 13 and that background helps A LOT, but I do believe this is something anyone can just grab and go without much instruction.

For my first session I borrowed a SUP and used the Armstrong foils 1600 wing as I figured I’d need all the help I could get with my first real try at “wing surfing?” I definitely needed the large board and wing as the wind was really gusty and pretty light, probably 5-15knts.

Bottom line and honest opinion: FUN! Replacement for kiting or windsurfing? – NO WAY! However if you don’t have any wind sports background, this is the easiest thing you could pick up and learn.

Where do I see the most potential for this new toy? 20-30knt downwinders where the wing will replace a paddle or jet ski as an assist. This truly has 100% de-power, which opens up being able to ride directly into the wind and truly “surf” (or foil) the wave/swell.” -Reo
