Fly downwind so much faster than you ever thought possible. Foils made the Americas Cup yachts go faster and likewise, downwind sup foils make SUP’s go faster. And we’re talking nearly twice as fast as SUP race boards. It feels like you’re surfing an endless wave.
Compared to the surf SUP foilboards, the downwind foilboards are a bit longer and have a pulled-in nose for extra paddle power. This is because you don’t have the wave to give you extra speed. The design is made to get you above the water, as fast as possible, off downwind chop.
There’s several different downwind SUP foils – all suiting different rider weights. You choose your foilboard based on your weight, rather than the wind strength. You can adjust the foil size for wind strength, not your board size.
