HYDRO FOIL 105 & 120
Our very short and exciting foil board models: For the new and latest foil developments as well as for more skilled riders we developed the right tools to explore new boundaries in this segment of the sport.
These medium to strong wind hulls are based on Werner Gnigler’s experience of the two generations of all-round and light wind performance foil boards. According to their use in stronger winds, they are designed with control in mind.
Super short, these designs also feature a parallel outline and a wide tail and keep the swing weights to a minimum. Narrower than their big brothers, they provide a more centred stance and a more responsive feel. Thus, these sensitive Hydro Foils are great fun in stronger winds when used in combination with small sails.
All these models take in consideration the different riding position and the aerodynamic behaviour of the boards. The streamlined shapes create minimum resistance in the air which gets more and more important the stronger winds gets. Gusts won’t affect the ride.
And once airborne, the perfect trim, the balance and the secure ride are the key to success. The flat deck shape and the ideally positioned footstraps make for an upright stance helping to easily control the power of the foil which guarantees an amazingly stable flight.
The well pronounced V-angled nose bevels in combination with a V- shape in the front of the bottom smoothens the touch downs in cases when the foil catches air between the chop and momentarily loses lift. The noses won’t dig into the water but will bounce back off the surface and will keep you flying. Also the tail cut-outs reduce drag in cases of touch downs which otherwise may be harsh in stronger winds.
No limitations: Free your mind, be innovative, these shapes will take you there.
