SUP Foil Board

Froth on the new trend of SUP Foil boarding. Fly silently and smoothly above the ocean. Ride anything from smooth glassy waves to small onshore bumps.

 

What's different about a SUP Foil Board?

Stand up foilboards are smaller than your regular SUP. They typically range between 7” and 8” foot. A foil specific SUP board may also have chimed rails to help you 'bounce' back up when you hit the water.   

The main function of the board is just to glide you into the waves. As soon as you get some speed, the foil will do it’s magic and lift you out of the water. That’s when you start flying. 

With recent improvements, the SUP foil boards have become even easier to use. Often you just need a small wave to get some speed and then you'll be up and gliding. 

How does the Foil work?

The foil is made up of the mast and the foil or wings. The mast connects the board and foil. A short mast is easier to control and is the better choice in your early days. Once you got the hang of it, you can switch to a longer mast. Longer masts can handle more chop and offer more tolerance when carving and turning your board.

The Foil has two wings. The front wing provides the uplift necessary to elevate you out of the water, while the back wing stabilizes your ride. The wing size varies by rider weight, surf height and conditions.

How does it look in action?

And if you're in the South West, chances are you might see Jake Jakovich giving it a go in Cowaramup Bay.
