Shinn Model Mega K Hydrofoil
New for 2018 the Shinn Mega K is the most versatile wing in the Shinn range. Originally designed with Surf and SUP in mind it’s also proved to be exceptionally well suited to kite-foiling in waves and in extreme light winds. With a surprisingly high top speed for a wing of this size and yet still un-believable low speed starting (as low as 8 kph) Mega K leads us down the path of multi-discipline wings.
SUP / XL SURF / LIGHTWIND KITESURF FOIL
PERFECT FOR FOIL-SURFING, SUP, KITING IN WAVES OR EXTREME LIGHT WIND ACTION
SURFACE AREA : 1200 CM2
STABILISER : 280 CM2 ST3
SPEED RANGE : 8 ≥ 35 KPH
RIDER SKILL : IMPROVER TO EXPERT
Designed to provide lift at low speeds and yet retain enough top end to keep it fun the Mega K provides stability and manoeuvrability making it perfect for SUP, SURF or Kitewave foiling in small to medium sized waves. Utilizing a low to mid aspect ratio wing with a high rake delta outline has allowed us to provide the massive speed range needed to handle both starting and control on the wave face. The main wings blended winglets work with the flat stabiliser to give great 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 where the challenge is to generate enough speed to start foiling. With the Mega K the power needed to water start is already enough to fly and with a top speed in excess of 35 kph you’ll be cruising when even other foilers are left sitting on the beach.
