What about bat wings in freeride boards? Narrower and more comfortable boards than wide slalom boards (for me at least). Can they plane earlier and keep planning in marginal conditions with bat wings or not so?

Hi F2Sunset

We try this but for the moment the jibe is more racing style than free ride style, so not correct for Free ride board. May be one year it will happen when we will fix this.

All the best

Thanks Remi for the answer. One idea, why don't you put wings that open and close. Open for light wind planning and closed when the wind picks up. Surely you have the technology and ability.
