Range Review: Fliteboard Flow 900, 1100 & 1300

Fliteboard’s Flow series of foil wings really impressed us with their surfy feel and are a great way to get people into foiling with surf foiling in mind, or for those wanting to get their foil fix on flat days.

Double Dip: North Sonar HA850 & HA1050 (+ Sonar CF85 Edition Mast)

North are the first to admit they are a little late to the party with their HA range, but they’ve arrived in a gold limousine, extremely well dressed and with a massive fanfare and probably some fireworks.

Double Dip: Cabrinha X-series MKII 930 & 1240

The new Fusion X-Series MKII foil system is a fantastic ecosystem for foilers. With wings suited for complete beginners, to the most hardcore wave chargers, the MKII can be customized to match every rider’s expectations.

RRD Air Beluga Pro 70

The Beluga Pro is an extremely impressive board that rides like a true performance wing board whilst offering the convenience of an inflatable. The 70L board that we tested is a great ‘one-board-quiver’ for those who travel a lot.

The Leviathan 1350 caters to all levels of foilers looking to get into pumpfoil and to the more advanced pumpfoiler looking for one of the most efficient foils currently on the market.

ELEVEIGHT WFS V3

The WFS V3 is a great option for riders who want an accessible wing, but one which also has some additional performance tucked away for when they need it.

Cabrinha Link 4’5

The Link is a great board with a sinker friendly design and is capable of performing under any conditions and all riding styles. Riders looking to take the next step should seriously consider the Link as their next choice.

ION Protection Suit 3/2 SS Front Zip

The range of application for this type of wetsuit spans across disciplines, but wing and tow foiling beginners will benefit hugely when making those first steps as well taking the sting out of the inevitable crashes.

Armstrong WKT 122

Armstrong have ticked all the boxes with a board that effortlessly transcends disciplines with no compromise, feels minimal and efficient, and lets you glide around as freely as an unincumbered seabird.

FFB Halcyon 1030

The Halcyon is a great foil for those who really want to push the ‘surfiness’ of their foiling and are looking to replicate that surf feeling on foil.

Cabrinha Macro Air 4’7

Riders who are willing to trade a small amount of top end performance for a massive gain in portability and travel potential should seriously consider the Macro Air inflatable.

SLINGSHOT Javelin 4m

The Javelin is an outstanding wing for riders of all abilities and styles. This is a wing that can be set up to send massive boosts, multiple rotations, inverts, and grabs, and still be tuned to a finely balanced wave riding machine.

AXIS Froth V2 5’4 & AXIS Ultrashort Advance Fuselage

The Froth V2 is an exceptionally friendly board to ride in this size, giving adequate buoyancy by maintaining a generous level of volume in a short board, and therefore minimizing swing weight, making it feel sportive for its literage.

Ocean Rodeo Glide A-Series 7m

The 7m A-Series is a wing that’s going to open up conditions you previously wouldn’t have bothered with, and it’s as user friendly and efficient as larger wings get.

KT Ginxu 62L

We tested the Ginxu from a complete ‘winging’ perspective and can say that this does feel like a true innovation that benefits the winging experience for all riders, not just the Kai Lennys of this world…

TABOU Pocket Air 67L

An excellent board for an aspiring intermediate who still wants to be able to knee start but wants the benefits of less board under their feet.

View Test >>

FLYSURFER MOJO Pure 4.5m

For a beginner rider, the Pure would be an excellent choice. For intermediate and above, the predictable behavior and well-balanced performance enable you to concentrate on what is going on under your feet rather than in your hands.

RRD UNIVERSAL SW ALU 2400

This foil ticks all the boxes and its performance makes it a great option for heavier riders looking for a light wind freeride foil to wing, SUP and even downwind SUP.

Flymount Aero 130

The Flymount Aero 130 is an impressive design response to a very specific and complex problem.
