Shinn Model Mega K 2019 Kitesurf Hydrofoil
The Shinn Mega K foil wing for 2019 is the most versatile wing in the Shinn range. Extreme light wind cruising, foiling in waves or strapless freeride transitions it’s also proved to be exceptionally well suited as a cross over wing for Surf and SUP action too. With a surprisingly high speed range for a wing of this size and almost un-believable low start speed, as low as 8 kph, the Shinn Mega K leads us down the path of multi-discipline wings.
FAST AND VERSATILE MULTI-USE FOIL
Surf, SUP, wave kiting and extreme light winds.
Medium/Low aspect high rake delta wing 1200cm 2
ST3 G10 stabiliser 280cm2
Designed to provide lift at low speeds and yet retain enough top end to keep it fun the Shinn Mega K provides stability and manoeuvrability making it the perfect choice for foiling in small to medium sized waves. A low to mid aspect ratio wing with high rake delta outline allows us to acheive the massive speed range needed to both catch and maintain control on the wave face and cruise through the white water without fear of a stall. The main wings blended winglets work with the flat stabiliser to give superior directional stability without limiting the carving potential even at crazy slow speeds.
So why do we recommend the Mega K for extreme light wind kiting as well? Low speed starting is the key when the challenge is to generate enough lift to fly. With the Mega K the power needed to water start is already enough to foil and with a top speed in excess of 35 kph you’ll be cruising when even other foilers are left sitting on the beach.
