WINDSURFING TAKES OFF

Flying over the sea without a sound, zipping along silently close to thirty knots. What could be more fun?

New for 2018, the Foil 122 is a plug and play freeride foil board: thin for maximum foil control, with 100% sharp rail edges for early planing and a clean water release even when touching down. It is designed purely as a foil board.

The Foil 147 continues as the balanced and stable foil board with a wider outline and a wider tail for more power and stability. Can be used for both foiling and regular windsurfing.

Both boards are available in foil-specific constructions that include extra reinforcements for foiling: the 122 is available in Flax Balsa, while the Foil 147 is available in Carbon Reflex and Technora.

TIESDA YOU

The first time I flew, it was a revelation. A mind-blowing, magical, memorable moment on par with those early planing days. Don’t we all remember the first time we got planing? Who would have thought that there was another hidden level in windsurfing. We windsurfers savor those memories and here we are, with an opportunity to relive those feelings once more.

Flying over the sea without a sound, zipping along silently close to thirty knots. What could be more fun? The foil adventure begins.

FOIL 147

The Foil 147 is the foil board and lightwind windsurf board in one.

It is based on the UltraSonic 147 and adds a reinforced foil box, a reinforced construction and extra footstrap inserts for additional tuning options.

It is suitable for foils up to 95 cm deep and regular windsurfing.

FOOTSTRAPS INSERTS

The Foil 147 is fitted with two rows of 5 inserts.

For foils with their front wings placed further forward, we recommend the forward positions. For foils with their front wings placed further back, we recommend the back positions.

ULTRALIGHT MK. IV & SLICK FOOTSTRAPS

The Foil 147 is delivered with the new UltraLight Mk IV footstraps. They neither stretch nor twist thanks to a new internal Kevlar X-Ply layer and an additional poly-carbonate reinforcement.

FOIL BOX

The Foil Box is larger and stronger than a normal fin box to distribute loads over a larger area. It is built using solid sheets of 20 mm thick high-density PVC with 8 mm thick carbon fibre walls, and has a flat, parallel bottom which allows the box to take both types of foil bases: tapered ‘Tuttle-style’ base and rectangular foil bases.

In either case, it is strongly recommended for the front of the foil’s base to reach the bottom of the box. This ensures that the vertical lifting load from the foil will be carried by both the front wall of the box and the bottom wall of the box.
