Hi, I’m looking to have a crack at wingfoiling but am unwilling to pay top dollar for the privilege. Work on a DIY board will be starting soon and I have started to think about the hydrofoil.
Does anyone have advice about whether the cheap AliExpress options are worthwhile?
Also, I’ve also seen semi DIY hydrofoil from [Clearwater] any feedback would be great.
What’s your budget and where are you? I would suggest following the classifieds of ikitesurf.com and standupzone.com Buying used gear is a great discount if you have time to wait for a good deal.
Most of the guys who have actually ridden aliexpress foils moved on very quickly and didn’t have nice things to say about the experience.
Gong is a great value. It’ll take awhile to get to the US, but could be in your price range.
Hi Hdip, thanks for the information I will check those sites.
I’m in the UK and will be trying to keep the price of a foil under £400 ($550 US)
Gong has a lot of different wings at affordable prices. RL also has some wings that could work for wingfoiling 1600cm2 or the 2000, see here:

Send a mail directly to René for a DIYS price (cheaper than in their web shop).
Hello! How did your idea end? did you have to buy it or did you print it yourself on a 3d printer?
