Today, in the world of wing foil and whatever the brand, we can often find two types of wings – the “elongated” wings or more technically with a slender aspect ratio (high-aspect) (left wing below and flyer wing or wing performer at afs ) – and the more “shovel” or technically low-aspect wings (right wing below or carver wing at afs )
These two programs are completely different in feel and in the way they navigate. There is no one that is more efficient than another. A round, carver type wing will encourage the foil to be playful and want to carve. Naturally, these are wings that want to go one way or the other. These are wings that will also fly very well at low speed. A high aspect wing is a wing that needs to express itself more in the high revs, and therefore at high speeds. They will also be more nervous for pumping. For a beginner, choosing his wing foil pack, we will rather advise to play the card of the tolerance and the versatility of a carver which will really help, tolerate, and support the rider.
When we start, we need a wing that flies early to have fun quickly. The Carver range meets all these requirements. For someone who already has some experience in the world of gliding (windsurfing, kite,…), the Flyer range allows to have a more slender kite and therefore to go for more speed and dynamism. Finally, for a person who already practices wing and wants to improve his equipment, the Performer range with its thin profile allows you to push your practice.
The most important thing to equip yourself with a wing foil is above all your level and your size. When you are a beginner, you should not hesitate to put some surface in front wing size. This provides stability and low speed flight. The key to success for a beginner is to fly as fast as possible and therefore at low speed. You will find below a comparative table to know which surface to choose according to your size for a wing foil practice.
We often get the question, “I have a 1700 Fone Gravtiy front wing, is it equivalent in lift to the Carver 1700?” The answer is no. Indeed, there are several parameters that come into play to measure the lift. There is of course the surface of the wing but also the thickness of the wing. A thick and rather round wing at the front is more powerful and therefore more buoyant than a thin wing. Moreover, the weight of the material is an important parameter: the lighter it is the faster it takes off.
In English, span means scope. This represents the length of the wing. The string represents the width of the wing.
The aspect ratio is a coefficient which allows to characterize the elongation of a wing. It is the squared length of this wing divided by its surface. This gives a coefficient that will allow to compare the wings between them. For example, between a Carver 1700 (AR=5.5) and a Flyer 1300 (AR=7), the latter has less string compared to its length, so its aspect ratio is higher.
You will find below a comparison of the span, surface and aspect ratio of the different wings of our range (C=Carver, F=Flyer, P=Performer) :
The richness of the foil is the possibility to adjust several parameters and factors that can really modify the behavior of a foil. The stabilizer is one of them. A large stabilizer at the back will provide lift. That is, it will really help you get started. It will also provide lateral stability thanks to its span. The more we decrease the size of the stabilizer, the less drag we will have, and therefore the more we will have lightness, speed sensations and especially maneuverability. A stabilizer that is less wide at the back will facilitate the pivot, the carving. Be careful when choosing your wing foil pack and even more so when you are a beginner, not to go too low on the stabilizer surface. Indeed, this can certainly bring dynamism but also instability when you start.
In addition, we have two types of stabilizers in the AFS range: the Tracer and the Performer. The Tracer range has been developed to practice wing in all disciplines (freeride, freewave…). The Performer range allows you to perfect your skills in one discipline. Indeed, they have been developed for specific practices – Performer RS for high speed wing practice (thinner profile), and Performer Surf for downwind, freestyle practice (profile with more dynamism). The choice of stabilizer size depends on your front wing. In order to guide you, here is a guide to the right stabilizer for your front wing.
Today on our ALPHA range, we recommend a mast size to start with: 82 cm.
The bigger the board, the more it floats. We often advise to choose a wing foil pack, a board that is +25/30 liters compared to its own weight. Thus a 70 kg practitioner will be able to choose a board of 95 liters. This brings stability and a quick start to the schedule.
In the AFS Boards range, we have two types of boards: Fire and the Fly, which are complementary The Fly is a rectangular board with width (shape tomo). The width of the board allows you to position yourself well and find your balance easily. We are on rounded rails, which will bring softness and be very smooth in fact when you will come in contact with the water. You will be able to make SUP foil, wing foil and why not surf foil also with the smallest sizes. It is very accessible, very easy and very soft, so it is ideal for those who wish to practice wing foil quietly. For the Fire, we are on shapes which are much more compact with less width implying less stability in archimedean, which allows to reduce the size notably in flight. We are on smaller volumes and sizes. The outline is much tighter with rails that are completely straight, unlike the Fly where we are on completely rounded rails. The straight rails bring dynamism and firmness to the fingerboard. The recovery is instantaneous, providing a nervous board. It is the ideal board for those who want to improve their wing foil skills.

When you are a beginner, a larger wing like a 5m2, is a definite advantage because it is more “quiet” than a 3 or 4m2. A 5m2 offers real support, and more weight when inflated with the wind which really stabilizes the sailing. It allows you to concentrate on your support. A 4 m2 requires more wind, often implying a more agitated water, so not always ideal when learning. Of course, the wing size depends on the practicing weight.
