Wind weapons were hard! I tried one a few times in the late eighties. I was able to get it going, but it was an inefficient beast. The spirit of the wind weapon (combine windsurfing with hangliding) lives on in kiting.

i bought the wind weapon 2 years ago in holland
on land i made of it a kitewing abble to windsurf that s much easier
wind weapon is very impressive on land with dirtsurfer and power can better be managed with a simple wing


i wonder why nobody sells such a symetrical windsurf sail , abble to kitewing and low priced
also you can make a wind weapon of a kitewing

Hey, NEW idea!
Let's attach a kite to your control bar/boom, so it can power you while up in clean air!
Old idea, started in Berkeley around 1984, that flipping wing. Really slow, nice lift on jumps like a kite, and then horrid straight vertical landings with no forward speed, making for BIG splashes and carnage.

a rectangular sail shape would allow a shorter mast and 6 m surface

this way the boom can be lowered for windsurf use

We used something like the OP's wing when we were skating on open ice on Lake Erie.

Man, could you get some serious speed with that wing!
