What is your favorite gear combination and why?
Shinnworld wing foil gear: -3m resurrector -90 cm mast -short fuselage -Small stabilizer -1200 cm^2 front foil wing -D'light 70l board Small wing means big waves (most of the times), the 90 cm mast is good for shallow spots and works great in radical turn, the short fuselage and small stabilizer are not the most stable in straight courses but have amazing turn abilities, the 1200 cm^2 is magical for winging it has the glide you need and the turn you want, the 70l board is a semi sinker for me and I ride it in every condition.
