The "LWing" , "L-Foil"
Our lightwind machine ... The "Lwing".
The "Lwing" is a wing "embedded" on the mast of the foil and helps the whole system to "take off" (earlier than a conventional foil) when the wind is low ( from 5 .. 6 kts).
No need pumping !! ( Additional pumping helps more !!! )
The embedded wing in combination with the main front wing produces the required lift for early planning and take off.
When the system reaches a high point , the rider starts foiling firstly with the gravity without the contribution of the embedded wing. When reaches a speed above critical (meaning ... above "the stalling speed") can continue to foil on a normal way.
During foiling the embedded wing does not contributes . It is out of the water !!!
It is so cool !!! Try it !!
(Jibing : During the jibe , the system can be easily controllable even if the embedded wing dives below the sea level. )
(For best results , the mast need to be more than 80 .. 85cm . (Our Aluminum mast : 88cm))
