Litewave Wing

May 21, 2008

Author: Shane Thompson

Style: Lightwind twin
Size: 160 x 44 cm

Construction and components
The wing has a wood core and ABS sidewall with biaxial laminated top and bottom sheet. The parabolic outline with super-wide tips combines with massive amounts of flex, the rails thinning out to about one millimetre at the tips. The four fins are set on the heelside rail for gripping upwind. No fins on the toeside.

On the water
The Wing’s large, flat surface has massive amount of flex, but it powers up easily in super-light winds. The long length and flexy tips are fun to push around in sloggy conditions. You can use the flex to carve into turns and have fun with nose and tail presses. The springy wideness of the tips add extra boost for lightwind jumps with less lift from the kite. Despite its size, the board feels light underfoot and in the air, which enhances spins and inverts. It’s loose and manoeuvrable on the heelside edge, but toeside can be difficult because the fins are set only on the heelside rail. The Wing will get you on the water and boosting jumps in super-light winds. It’s an all-around fun stick for those days you would normally pack up and go home.
