All Round Performance Wing

  • Hand held Wing for water, land or snow sports
  • Lightweight inflatable design
  • Simple to set up and use
  • Stable with efficient power

The WASP V3 is an amazing all-round performance wing excelling in any condition and all disciplines. It is lightweight, simple to set up and easy to use with improvements to the power handles, de-power surf handle, windows, waist leash strap, canopy material and an updated size range.

From freeride cruising, wave riding, boosting air tricks, down winding or just starting out, the WASP V3 is ready to shred!

Innovative Leading Edge and Strut

Our innovative Leading Edge and Strut design provides a stable airframe with minimal flex, delivering a solid, direct and well-balanced feeling. This rigidity also helps develop power at low speeds to get you powered up and planing sooner. Our new overlap flat seam construction improves sail control resulting in an overall cleaner canopy.

New Ergonomic Power Handles

New Ergonomic Power Handles on the Leading Edge and Strut feature an updated stiffer design to provide maximum control and comfort. The De-Power/Surf Handle at the front of the Leading Edge has been redesigned for increased control when flying the wing single-handed and features new soft knuckle padding for extra comfort.

Easy Inflate

Fast Flow Air Valves on both the Leading Edge and Strut makes inflation, deflation and packing a breeze.

Proven  Planform and Tip Shape

The planform and tip shape reduces interference with the water or ground. 

Lightweight Scuff Protection

Lightweight, durable scuff protection is integrated for riding on snow or land, although it is best to keep the wing off the ground at all times!

Bigger Windows

Increased size windows on both sides of the strut provide safety for you and others around.

Any Board, Any Surface

The WASP V3 is suitable for riding any type of board on the water that has enough volume to support your weight. In strong wind conditions and with developed skills it is possible to ride with smaller volume hydrofoil boards. On the land or snow minimal wind is required to harness the natural energy to enjoy a different feeling of propulsion.

New triple rip-stop material Combination

The WASP V3 features a new triple rip-stop material combination. The new triple rip-stop canopy material has an advanced coating to increase strength, rigidity and durability while improving feedback to the rider for a more direct feel of the wing.

Super Tough Dacron

The technical triple rip-stop dacron is super tough, used on the Leading Edge and Struts it has superior strength and durability.

Shoulder Padding

For the V3 we have updated the bag adding a second adjustable shoulder strap plus double layer foam padding for carrying a board and foil over the shoulder.

Modular Leash

Our modular leash system can be customized for rider preference. The WASP V3 ships standard with a Waist Strap pre-attached to the Leash Line. The updated waist strap now includes an additional velcro closure running over the buckle to take stress off the buckle when highly loaded. Leash system accessories (sold separately) are a velcro Wrist Strap or a Quick Release for use with the supplied Waist Strap or for connecting the Leash Line to a harness.

Combine with Connect Wing Harness

Combine with our  Connect Wing harness for the ultimate set up. Note: to use the WASP V3 with the Connect Wing Harness it requires our specially designed WASP V2/V3 Harness Line (sold separately). See the Wing Leash System and Harness Line PDF/video for further information.

Harness Line

For riders using a harness, webbing loops next to the strut Power Handles provide quick and easy installation of the WASP V3 Harness Line – a slim and lightweight design with an internal bungee contracting when unhooked to stay out of the way.

  • Check the valve is clean and free from sand/grit around the rubber seal.
  • Screw the valve in firmly to the base.
  • Open the top valve cap.
  • Inflate using the IN valve. We recommend inflating to 7 PSI. Do not over inflate above 8 PSI.

Security

Always use the Leash. Attach it before you start.

  • Wrap the Waist Strap around your waist, adjust and close the buckle.
  • Close the velcro strap. The strap tail runs over the closed buckle and is held by velcro onto the waist strap.
  • If you become overpowered or loose control let go of the wing, it will de-power on the leash line.
  • If you need to completely free yourself from the wing undo the Waist Strap velcro and buckle. Be aware the wing will likely become out of reach.

First Use

  • Never learn to use this product in more than 10 knots of wind.
  • The wing has multiple power handles on the Leading Edge and Strut, and one de-power handle at the front of the Leading Edge.
  • When carrying the wing use the de-power handle.
  • To practice sheeting the wing for power, first take hold of a front power handle, then reach back to take hold of a rear power handle on the strut.
  • Sheet the wing in to power up, and out to de-power.
  • Practice sheeting the wing in and out to feel how the power is generated.
  • Practice handling the wing on land before going in the water.

Water Self Rescue

  • Turn the wing to face the power handles upwards.
  • Open the Leading Edge OUT valve to deflate.
  • Fold the wing tip on tip then roll to the centre.
  • Screw the valve back in to seal the bladder.
  • Open the Strut OUT valve to deflate.
  • Make sure no water enters the valves while they are open.
  • Fold the wing in two or three sections.
  • Screw the valve back in to seal the bladder.
  • Wrap the leash line around the wing to keep it secured.
  • Wrap the waist strap around the wing, close the buckle and tighten to secure.
  • Paddle/swim back to shore with your board and wing.
  • In case you become separated from your board we recommend leaving the strut inflated for buoyancy.

Packing

  • Open the OUT valves. The large valves dump air quickly.
  • Roll one side of the wing to the centre.
  • Squeeze all air out from the strut.
  • Roll up the opposite side of the wing to the centre.
  • Screw the valves back in a few turns and close the neoprene covers.
  • Fold in sections from the trailing edge to fit into the bag.

NOTE:
If packing on the water, after rolling the wing up, screw the valves back in to seal the bladders to avoid water entering.

Product Care

This is a technical product used in harsh outdoor environments.
Use common sense and care for your equipment.

Never inflate this product on a rough surface.

Inflate slowly and ensure the bladders are inflating correctly. If you see a twist or something looks strange stop pumping immediately and check bladders. They may need re-inserting to ensure they inflate properly.

Once you have inflated secure the product. Do not use heavy objects. Boards and fins can damage the material.

Never leave this product un-used for long periods of time in the sun and wind. UV, canopy flapping due to wind, sand etc hitting the sailcloth can all severely shorten the products lifespan.

Never pack this product wet, only when completely dry. Packing wet can damage the material and its coatings and may lead to dye running. This is not valid for warranty.

Never leave this product inside a car or in direct sunlight.
