Foil/Wing Adjustment - Effects

@Stevie_Boy 1 or 2 degree wing changes are subtle but if you are skiing daily, you'll notice most of the difference from the edge change into and around the ball. More wing adds some drag at the tail of the ski which feels like more stability (think more feathers on the back of an arrow). It also drags a little more of the ski's tip into the water helping the ski to turn a little easier. This easier turning and stability comes at a price; you'll also loose a bit of width on the course, a pinch of speed, and get less glide before the gates. Less wing=visa versa.
