The JP Prone Foil boards are the next evolution for those looking to progress their foil surfing to a smaller, more maneuverable board and for anyone coming from a surfing background starting to foil. Although normal surfboard shapes can work, these boards are designed specifically towards foiling, allowing you to get the highest performance possible.
By creating a smaller compact shape, these boards still offer appropriate volume and length for easy paddling and smooth take-off. As a result, you will catch waves earlier than ever before. The flat deck allows for great control and the chimed rails help minimize water contact in tight turns. Compared to a SUP foil board, the Prone Foil shapes have less volume providing a unique lively feel. Pumping is much easier due to their shorter length and lighter weight. The narrow outline of the Prone Foil boards means you can carve tighter in turns and get lower to the water before touching it causing you to slow down.
The 6’0” shape has plenty of volume for catching your first waves and standing up onto the foil with good stability. This is the board of choice for beginner foil surfers coming from SUP or from surfing intermediate level surfboards.
The 5’0” shape is a great size for experienced surfers who are used to riding smaller and more advanced surfboards. The foiling performance is amazing as long as you are comfortable with the take-off.
The boards come in a Custom Surf Epoxy technology with a carbon stringer on deck and a carbon reinforcement covering the US boxes.
With these boards, foil surfing gives you the ability to escape the crowds and have fun in conditions you never thought possible on a normal surf board.
