Our ZAP, TT and other new Wingsurf wing designs in detail.
Here are the Action videos plus design details of our "ZAP" & "TT" wingsurf wings developed in 2019 for the 2020 season. We are currently finalising the '2021 ZEN' wingfoil wing.

Lets take a closer look at the designs.
First up... here is a 3D model of our ZAP that you can take for a spin.
Our other great design is a unique twin tube prototype the "TT"
It's a high power wing and is on the water for testing. Further development is underway before it's market release.
The SUP.RED "TT" Twin-Tube is available but only as a prototype for now.
You can order this if you want a working concept wing and would like to be involved in the project with feedback etc.

The "TT" Twin Strut design in development is a unique convex (Dihedral) design form. Extra pitch and roll power control made possible by my twin strut frame & the unique power control system.
Sizes planned. 2-3m for kids on SUPs or Storm force foiling. 4 & 6m for NZ summer breezes.
I had been designing this as a 3 line kite for a long while. ...but that's a whole other project... 😎 ...pivot to this... & using my unique twin strut inverted kite was instrumental in forming my wingsurf wing. It's also why my design looks a long way off what other companies are producing. 🤓
So it's no longer a kite, it's a hand held wing for sup and hydrofoil boards. So simple an idea I wish I'd thought of that first. 😂 Alas no.
I'm nowhere near the front there. I'm also way out in left field design wise. 😆 Kind of my happy place.
It will be interesting to see if this new way to ride the wind and waves grabs the attention it deserves from the general public.
I see it becoming a super easy access watersport for the masses. With the option of advancing into hydrofoiling.
