The Indiana wing foil range is based on a very compact wing platform, designed to offer the best volume/size ratio for beginners to advanced wing foilers. The heavy duty multi-layered carbon/PVC construction coupled with its compact outline and volume distribution gives an extra amount of control to get you up and flying as quickly as possible, and protect the boards against dings. It comes available in eight sizes from 4’4 (55L) to 6’0 (155L), covering a huge range of wind conditions, and has a full sandwich EPS/PVC carbon vacuumed epoxy construction with extra layers on the rails and boxes. The result is a compact, ultra-light and incredibly stiff board with a bulletproof construction. It is CNC-shaped with a very flat, square and straight outline, with a rounded square tail with hard rails. The round nose includes two inserts to fit a handle for beginners. The deck is as flat as a pancake, leaving a lot of surface area upon which to move your feet. The volume distribution is extended from nose to tail and the ultra-flat bottom helps the board to reach planing speeds very quickly.
This test took place on the 5’0 (74L) in open ocean conditions, with waves from 3-5ft and winds from 10 to 25 knots.
On the water and the board reveals itself to be a super stable platform. At 74 liters, it definitely feels like there’s another 15 liters in there in terms of accessibility. It is super easy to get on your knees and feet even at very low speed. Once you get a slight push from the wing it accelerates up to flight mode gradually. It is the perfect board to learn to wing as it gives you a lot of passive control on the foil and will ease the learning of all your transitions while being really forgiving when it hits the water, maintaining drive and speed and full control. The early planing provided by the wide shape and flat bottom will get you on the foil quicker than most of the boards of the same size on the market.
Up on the foil it provides a really balanced and controlled flight. The very flat rocker and straight outline combined with loads of deck space and perfectly balanced footstrap and foil positioning gives you a lot of passive stability which is much appreciated when you want to lock in full speed mode. It is light, really well balanced and will help riders of any level perform better.
Although possibly a bit too flat and wide for ultimate control in the waves, this is however a compact performance foilboard that is suited perfectly to progressive wing riding, suiting beginner to advanced wingers, and is an excellent option for freeride, racing and entry freestyle.
