son commentaire.  Hello Wing Surf members! Here is a (short) info for beginners in winGsurfing......
I've been winGsurfing for a month now, and I can fly at 15 knots over long distances with Fanatic Sky Sup 6'3 (95 l.), Aero Foil 2000 short mast, and Duotone Wing 4.0.
But yesterday, as I didn't have my foil board (sold), I wanted to try with my surfboard, a Fanatic McKee 8'3" longboard, thruster setup.
There was about 25 knots of onshore wind. At first I wanted to go downwind because I thought I couldn't go upwind. So I launched from a spot off the bay. Offshore, it was very difficult to stand up on the longboard, as it is not stable at all and does not offer much buoyancy. But I finally managed to get up after 10 minutes sitting on the board.
Once standing up, it was very cool! full power with the Duotone 4.0, and finally I was surprised to see how I could keep upwind at a sufficient speed.
It requires more strength than on the foil board though, the wing needs to be more vertical to keep speed! So it feels more like winDsurfing, but it was interesting and not so tiring finally.
I went completely downwind, at full speed, and managed to loop a jibe and switch my feet..... Once at the beach, I went again for some runs. It was easy to go beachstart while continuing to go upwind at a speed sufficient to pass the waves, even with onshore wind. I could jibe again with the longboard and I surprised myself surfing a few sets on the way back, sometimes changing the feet position, sometimes keeping them switch stance.
The most difficult part was to try not to fall while jibing offshore, because it was then very difficult to get up again on the board! That was the main problem with this 8'3" long board. I weight 70 kg.
But I am writing this message just to say that you can practice winGsurfing on this type of board to do the first steps, before jumping (or starting) on a foil board. I will therefore recommend a fairly wide (stable) board with a good initial volume, depending on your weight (your weight + 30 l. +/-).
Be careful where your feet are on the board, and start with a fairly regular and moderate to strong wind (but not offshore). This will help you get used to the wing, which will also help you find your balance before the next step on a foil board!
Good luck and enjoy your wing!!!!!!!!

Oui mais c'est Brutal Beach, ils ne sont pas vraiment humains là-bas...
