Our last generation Hover Wing Foil Boards instantly set the standard in design, construction, and weight for the category. This new range of boards is perfectly suited for wing surfing, or to be used as a SUP foil board or SUP downwind foil board. Changes to this updated model include a more overall rail curve in the outline, slightly narrower tail, increased nose rocker, and more pronounced bottom shaping and concave. Multiple foot strap insert positions, including wider stance options, give riders the opportunity to choose between a windsurfing style, double front strap setup, or a single surf style setup. The rocker is perfectly balanced so the board flies smoothly parallel to the water surface. Track boxes have been moved further back to better match with the multitude of different foils that riders may pair with the boards. The increased tail kick behind foil boxes combined with the beveled rail guarantees easy take odds and sufficient clearance in turns.
Utilizing an S-Glass/wood sandwich construction with carbon and kevlar reinforcements, the GS is available in 110L and 125L. The Hover Wing Foil GS offers the same shape and overall performance as its carbon ultra siblings in a more durable and affordable construction.
The board selector below is a rough guide to help determine Hover Wing Foil board size based on rider weight and skill level. We consider a “beginner” a rider who has no previous board sport experience.
Keep in mind that additional factors, such as wind conditions, foil, and Wing-Surfer size will play an important role in the selection of the right board size.
Generally, we recommend erring on the side of a floatier board with a volume that matches rider weight (for example, an 80-kilo/176-pound rider will need at least an 80L board or larger). Riding a “sinker” will work in locations with steady, strong winds, while floatier boards prove to be a safer choice as they allow the rider to get back to shore even if the wind drops under a foilable limit.
