SURF FOIL

DEDICATED FOIL BOARDS

Exclusively for foil use but bigger than pure surf foil boards, they are designed for ease and a wider range of use. They need a “motor” – be it a paddle, wing or windsurf rig.

Recommended NEIL PRYDE foils

For foil sizes: see NP recommendation. In general: the lower the speed, the bigger the wing -> for more power / lift (just like with sails). Note: always make sure to get the foil with the fitting base, respectively the right adaptor.

HOW DOES
A FOIL WORK

1. MOUNT OPTIOINS

• Deep Tuttlebox
• Powerbox
• 2x Long Track Box

2. MAST

Short mast - ease and control
Long mast - less touchdowns

3. FRONT WING

• The bigger the area, the more lift (light wind / low speed)

• Small and thin front wing for more speed (high wind)

4. FUSELAGE

Long: more stability
Short: better manoeuvrability

5. TAIL WING

Down-Tilted -> power, lift and stability at lower speed
Up-Tilted -> control and top speed
