I have enjoyed my other Gong wings a lot so i wanted to try one of the new Gong “H” wings, sadly all were sold out or on waiting list so (with some doubts) i got the only available alternative: a Gong YPRA wing with >10 aspect made for racing…
I’ve tried it for two sessions now and it’s like doing the first ever efoil runs again, it’s HARD. I’m sure my skills will improve eventually but my main problem is that the wing is totally unstable on straight/neutral direction, it wobbles between the left and right direction. Maybe higher aspect wings have a tendency to ride more like this (?) but to me it’s almost unrideable.
My first theory is that i have either a clearance or too high flex somewhere in my mast or stab which allows the wing to start to “cut” into either left or right direction. I cannot find it and never had any trouble at all with my curve LT wing. Could be that the overall stiffness need to be improved… Everything flexes so easily with the Gong V1 mast.
My second theory is that my stab isn’t matching the wing so that the wobble is provoked. I have a gong curve pro 43cm stab mounted now and it’s obviously got too high lift for the YPRA, i need really high front foot pressure.
What do you guys think, any advice? I need some inputs.
