My current wing is loosely based on the Moses Fluente, at around 560cm2. The Zeeko Freeride wing is probably closest to what I have.
A 750 cm2 high aspect front wing might be interesting.
Wings are always interesting, true
So you seek a wing to be able to ride in marginal wind, and good upwind angles?
As if not, and for waves or maneuvers, I would choose a 750 cm2 (or bigger) low aspect, so it can hang on the wave and turn really well/narrow, instead of a high aspect.
I would say high aspect really big wings got quite limited use, they are not as fast and turn slow, but for ultimate marginal winds they are top so nothing beats these here.
Got one myself eventhough only around 800 cm2 but ok high AR, I use a lot, but I also try to ride relatively often in 6 to 7 knots with 12-13 m2 LEI kites.
Still usually change to either a lower AR wing when around 8 knots and up, or to a higher AR smaller wing if I want to go fast and high angles.
