DIMENSIONS OF THE RW 245 HIGH ASPECT WING
The wider your rear wing, the more roll stability your setup will exhibit. Winglets or anhedral/dihedral shapes will aid in directional stability, fighting yaw. But those variations will affect the roll stability less than downright width.
The more chord your rear wing features (leading edge to trailing edge), the more pitch stability you will have. Interestingly, fewer wingspan and narrower chords will create a more responsive foiling setup. make for a faster reaction in their roll and pitch directions.

REAR WING SHIM KIT
The 3-piece, 1-3 degree Shim Kit has been redesigned and molded from fiber-reinforced nylon, working perfectly with the RW 245 High Aspect Wing.
The different degrees of each shim changes the angle of the wings in the water so you can customize your ride for more stability, faster lift maximum speed, or the best for pumping or winging.
• The 1-degree shim gives the least amount of drag, increasing speed but requiring some pumping to get up on foil.
• The 2-degree shim offers a great balance between stability and speed. It is the best choice to start out on.
• The 3-degrees shim gives the most lift and is the easiest to get up on foil with, but a little slower, making it useful for beginners or foilers who prefer a quick lift.
TRIM LINES FOR THE RW 245 HIGH-ASPECT WING
The new cutoff marks on the tips of the wingtips allow you to reduce the surface area by up to 35cm² down to 225cm² or right up to a surface of just 210cm².
The second trim line on the wing tips effecitvely takes off the winglets, changing the character of the wing completely. While there is no going back, this takes the RW 245 High-Aspect wing from a HA rear wing to a great stabilizer, ideal for hardcore surfers who prefer a loose feel and the ability to turn quickly.
Where does the RW 245 High Aspect Wing fit in the range?
When using the RW 245 HA without cutting the winglets for downwinding and winging, we find pairing this rear wing with the Glider Series front wings works really well. Radical surfers who opt to trim the winglets, will find the wing is best suited with the Gull Series front wings.
While the aspect ratio of the RW 245 HA remains high compared to the 330 and 340 rear wings, its directional stability is removed in exchange for a more skate-like ride.
