Can You Use a Regular Surf Board or Twin Tip To Wing? Cabarete, Dominican Republic

admin Blog

Can you use a regular surf board or twin tip to wing? Charles will today express his personal opinion regarding this topic. The general answer is going to be a NO. Although we do feel like it could be a possibility in the near future since the sport is evolving so much that one day this will be possible especially if you are a very skilled rider and the conditions are very strong. As of now Charles doesn’t think there is anybody who has done that… Either way we wouldn’t be surprised if people would push this sport to a limit. As of now most people who are using a wing are on a stand up paddle board, on a wing foil board, or on a prone. WE HOPE IN THE FUTURE THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION WILL CHANGE… WILL …
