Recap 2022

We invite you to look back with us at a year packed with moving moments, innovation, performance, excitement and true wing foiling spirit! Get cozy on your couch, grab a drink and relax with our 2022 recap featuring selected highlights of the Duotone Wing Foiling World!


Unit D/LAB 23 - Launch

The wing that needs no introduction, the Unit D/LAB is the pinnacle of wing design and the benchmark in performance. For 2023 the Aluula leading edge and strut combine with our new MOD3 canopy and the result is mind blowing! The MOD3 Canopy channels the energy from the Aluula material into pure acceleration and sheer grunt! 


UNIT 23 featuring MOD3

The 2023 Unit enters us into a new era of wing design. Featuring MOD3, a new wing specific canopy, that changes everything! From the first pump, you’ll notice the additional power MOD3 brings to the wing. The higher modulus MOD3 fabric holds the shape of the wing with double the strength in warp direction and 3 times* the stretch resistance in bias direction compared to traditional canopies.


Paula Novotna - Freestyle World Champion

We are beyond stoke to announce the first World Title at the GWA Wing Foil World Tour for Paula Novotna. At the penultimate event in Tarifa our Czech team rider secured the Freestyle World Champion Title in a final against season-long rival, the 15-year-old Nia Suardiaz. With three out of four wins Paula has such a lead already before the fifth and last stop in Brazil in November that she is uncatchable.


Ken Winner - The Toymaker

Who is Ken Winner? Who is the toymaker? Sky Solbach, Kai Lenny and the Spencer Boys talk about Ken Winner and how he has influenced and changed water sports with his innovations. Ken deserves the credit for inventing the first inflatable wing and laying the missing foundation for this great sport. Without Ken, Wing Foiling would not be the sport we know and love today. See at the story of how it all began. Thank you Ken!


Young Blood goes Wing Foiling

Wing Foiling offers one of the easiest and most appealing entries to wind sports, especially for young rippers. So, it’s a logical step to bring our successful young blood concept into the realms of wing foiling. From August 12th to 14th two of our four amazing 2022 Young Blood Camps took place in the North of Germany and Italy! After this awesome weekend it is safe to say the future of our fascinating young sport is absolutely tearing it up!


Freestyle Team Session

The third tour stop of the GWA World Cup, with Surf-Freestyle as the focus was held on Lanzarote. The Duotone X Fanatic Wing Foil Team took the chance for a freestyle session together at Costa Teguise. Cameraman Mintautas Grigas caught up with Wesley Brito, Stefan Spiessberger, Paula Novotna, Jerome Cloetens, Nia Suardiaz, Linus Pünder and Tom Auber, sharing some time out from their contest life.


Slick SLS - Launch

The new generation of Slick wings combine the Strong / Light / Superior (SLS) technology with a multitude of design and performance upgrades. The most popular model in the range is now lighter with more lift and stability resulting in a wing that’s easier to use with a smoothness that will make you want to stay on the water for hours!



The longest Wing Flight

The longest Wing Flight by Duotone X Wolfgang Siess. We are absolutely stoked that we could do this project with Wolfgang Siess. If you have not seen the full story behind the longest Wing flight, make sure to check out the YouTube Video below! But please do not attempt to replicate this or similar stunts. As you can see it was a bit sketchy.



Clean Beach Days 2022

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Clean Beach Days 2022 and contributed to #saveourplaygrounds. With your help a total number of nearly 13.000 pieces of trash could be removed from beaches worldwide.

For the third time since the start of our initiative, we called on you to help us clean beaches, lakesides, river shores, mountain trails and forests in a joint effort to save our playgrounds.


"The Land of Lefts"

There is one thing that catches the surfer’s attention when it comes to Chile and what it stands for: “the land of lefts” 
The plan was to take some of our best Duotone and Fanatic team riders and find spots that not many people have been riding on a foil yet. It was in March, when Clement Roseyro, Paula Novotna, Klaas Voget and Stefan Spiessberger took off to Chile to rip spots like Matanzas. The result is a “MUST SEE” travel episode about this versatile crew’s challenges and times of joy.


UNIT D/LAB 2022 Launch

The Unit D/LAB has arrived and sets a new benchmark of wing design. With over 15% in weight savings and 50% higher stiffness when compared to the original Dacron version. The Unit D/LAB is the first high-end wing to come out of the Duotone laboratory and the performance has been significantly improved. The D/LAB version of the Unit is quite simply the best wing you can get your hands on!
