The characteristic moustache form is driven by a bionic design approach. The central part of the frontwing is inspired by the wings of the albatross as the overall profile and sides of the wing resemble the fins of a dolphin. Nature has been selecting the best creations for a while so the aircraft engineers who have been developing this foil with us have been looking above and below sea level for inspiration. Combined with countless hours of simulation and years of experience we managed to find the sweet spot between stability, speed and control while minimizing the drag of the foil.

The resulting foil stands out through immense stability on straight flights, while keeping turning characteristics extremely easy and under control. The wing surface that is following the special moustache line will create lift through every moment of a turn or jibe while the rather pronounced profile will help to take off with the lightest of breezes.

The thicker profile of the frontwing and the rounded edges of the overall wing design, will increase the safety of use of the HY-FOIL Wing 1600.

MODULARITY
The aluminium fuselage is the key enabler to the foils' modularity. We will be offering multiple wing and mast options to extend your set all around the modular wing platform. The HY-FOIL Wing will be your reliable and versatile ticket to fly and improve your winging game. Fly-HY!

WHICH BACKWING TO CHOOSE?
The two different backwing options will make the HY-FOIL Wing as versatile as it gets: If you are a beginner, pump foiler or a rather heavier wing surfer (above 80kg) choose the bigger backwing with 282cm² surface. If you are intermediate level or above, light-weight (below 80kg) and are looking to push the HY-FOIL Wing to its top speed, go for the smaller version with 220cm².

Testbericht Wing Foil Surf Wingsurfers Magazin, Surfmagazin,  Planchemag, Wingsurf

As a newcomer to the foil business, Gunsails still keeps its range clear. The aluminum foil is currently available with a 1600 square centimeter frontwing, but you can choose between two backwings with 220 or 282 square centimeters of surface area.

ON THE BEACH: If you extrapolate robustness from weight, then the Gunsails-Foil should have extraordinary endurance qualities. At 5.5 kilos, it weighs an average of one kilo more than the GA in the hybrid version, for example. The workmanship also appears very solid. The strong undulations in the front and rear wings are eye-catching. Gunsails calls this a bionic design approach; dolphins and albatrosses send their regards. The first glance at the very voluminous profile makes it clear that no high-end speed foil is waiting for us here. To prevent unplanned foil-wing contact from ending in a crack in the wing canopy, all tips are slightly beveled or rounded. For the backwings, we chose the set-up with the smaller variant.

ON THE WATER: At the start, the medium sized, slightly stretched foil of 1,600 square centimeters comes out of the water quite early and harmoniously, even with the small rear wing. The fact that control was very important in the development is noticeable right from the first run. Both on the roll and pitch axis, the foil is very stable in the flight phase. As expected, you always feel a slight resistance of the foil. Nevertheless, the speed is okay and with a little more pull on the hands you can still fly the set-up even with increasing wind due to the good controllability. When jibing, you can fly the curved 1,600 very tight around the turn with medium pressure on the feet. When doing so, the tips should always remain in the water, otherwise the flow will break off abruptly. For freestyling and jumping, the set-up is very heavy and not very agile.

FOR WHOM? Developed for beginners and intermediates in wingfoiling, the 1,600 front wing for pilots up to 80 kilos also covers the lower wind range from ten, eleven knots well. If you want even more stability and lift, you should choose the larger rear wing. The rounded tips and thicker profile offer extra safety in the event of involuntary contact with the foil, especially for newcomers.
