How to maintain your wing?
Drying your wing
Inflate your wing for better drying
What should I do if I have a hernia?
If you inflate your wing with as much pressure as possible at one time, it can create a fold or hernia that can burst. To prevent this phenomenon, when you reinflate, before applying maximum pressure, take care to check that the bladders are well in place.
So when you inflate, start sending a little pressure into the bladders to give the wing its shape. Then, before applying more pressure, lightly tap the socks so that they settle back into their sheaths. And only then can you put the proper pressure.
At AFS Foils we mentioned 6 PSI on the bladder, in reality we have taken a little margin and the ideal inflation is 7 PSI on our wings.
Tidy up your wing
The last step is to put the wing in its bag. It’s simple, unscrew the valve and let the air out. Then roll up one ear, then the other, to the center pudding.
By doing so, you are taking care to keep your center pudding securely in its sheath. Depending on the size of the wing, we will make 2 or 3 folds before putting it in his bag.
