Has anyone tried wind surf foil wings for kite foiling?
The Naish windsurf foils look good to me and maybe more efficient than the SUP foil wings, I really do not know?

The Naish medium surf wing is great for Kitefoil and I'm told is also good for windfoil.

I have the Naish medium surf wing, 2018 heavier version, and like it.
My Naish medium is the one with yellow graphics which are about .5 mm thick causing blunt edges and drag. I have now wet and dry sanded the graphics almost completely off and after 2 sessions notice a consistent improvement in top and average speed plus legs last an extra 5k before starting to get tied.
So thought after looking at the Naish windsurf wings that just look faster I might give them a go?

I asked Nicolas some time ago about using the Windfoil for Kiting and the short answer was "No too high AR."
