Duotone Unit 2023

The wing we’ve all been waiting for! As soon as the team at Pacific Watersports and I  opened one of these wings up down the beach it was instantly turning heads. One of the big improvements for 2023 is the new canopy material Duotone have added to all of their wings. The new material is clearly much more heavy duty, resulting in better tear resistance and creating a more solid and rigid all- round feel.


Build Quality

With riders pushing it harder than ever before, build quality has been a big focus for all of the big wing brands in 2023. The Duotone Unit 2023 is no exception to this. They have added the new canopy material, beefed up and strengthened the areas around the solid handle system (that features on the Duotone Unit 2022 and 2023 wings) and added a thicker Flag-out handle for better control and durability.


There’s no doubt we have seen significant changes to all wings over the last few years. Being a very new sport, we have seen massive improvements to performance every year and there’s no doubt Duotone are at the forefront when it comes to research and development. Yet again Duotone have set the standard with their new Duotone Unit V3. The more rigid construction has added such a positive feel to the wing. The new Unit also tends to want to fly more into the wind meaning it has much better upwind performance, with a little less pressure on the back hand. Over all this wing is truly suited to every level of rider. It has plenty of power down low for learning, but at the same time it’s a jumping flagging machine. Well, I hope you found some of the information in this article helpful or interesting.

Wing Foiling

Wing foiling, wing ding, the wing thing – whatever you want to call it, it is the latest craze in the world of watersports. Basically it’s an inflatable wing/kite that you hold in your hands to catch the wind. There are no lines connecting you to the wing, so it’s a lot less complicated than kiting. It’s also a lot safer to learn on you own. In saying that, a couple of lessons will go a long way and make the learning process a lot more enjoyable and a lot faster.


Advantages and disadvantages compared to kiteboarding

The big advantage it has over kitesurfing is that you can flag or neutralise the wing and ride directly downwind. This is a massive advantage when riding waves as you don’t have to worry about keeping the kite in front of you to prevent it from falling out of the sky.

With a wing foil wing, you simply flag it out about your head and focus more on the actual wave its self. Gusty conditions are also a lot easier on a wing as you don’t have to worry about the wing falling on the water and not being able to relaunch it.

The great thing about kitesurfing is that you can do a range of different disciplines. You can foil, twintip, surfboard and much more. The kite also allows you to jump to incredible heights, which simply are not achievable on a wing. For me personally, I use the wing if I want to go for a foil and the kite if I want to have a freestyle session.


How do I get into wing foiling?

The best way to get into wing foiling is to contact your local school/ retailer. They will be able to give you all the advice you need when it comes to lessons and getting the right equipment for you. There are a lot of different shapes and sizes when it come to wings and foils, so it is worth getting some expert advice before purchasing your equipment. Feel free to contact us at Pacific Watersports and we will get you up and running.
