Falcon-Foil SUP Tracks or Tuttle. US sales only

1,445.00

Factory Direct Price $1445 with tracks or Tuttle

Factory Direct Price $1495 with tracks AND Tuttle

I do not wholesale to dealers. If I did, retail price would have to be $2100 with this high end construction.

Construction is full Innegra cloth top and bottom, pre-preg vacuum bagged.

The 6’4 and 5’11 Falcon is parallel template (Tomo Style) foil SUP design. Designed to follow the trends already proven in the kite foiling world. This design solves the major drawbacks associated with just adding a foil to a regular SUP. Those drawbacks being:

1) A board that feels stuck to the water. The bottom shape should bounce back into the air.

2) A board that paddles like a sea slug most of the time, or at just the wrong time, rejecting your wave entry.

3) A board that requires shimming the foil mount to reduce paddling drag and get the right foil angle of attack.

Why all the chines? Anyone who kite foils knows the answer, for the others, it is to unstick the board. Kiters are way ahead here. All their boards use chines. A wide flat or concave bottom, sucks the life out of a foil board. It sticks, instead of bouncing off the water. A foil board should feel like it is allergic to water. 

The chine running lengthwise is cut parallel. In testing, parallel chines paddle faster than a chine following the template curve.

The tail chine is the obvious addition for better pumping, but a lesser known advantage is on takeoff. The wave naturally shoves you off into perfect flight trim, with less trim disruption. 

The rocker is flat through foil mounting area, so the foil angle of attack is automatically right at take off. This flat rocker works because of the tail bevel, acting like rocker, at take off.

Check the board sizing chart below. These boards offer tremendous stability, so the weight range is huge. Going for a board more narrow does reward you with more paddle speed, just as it does with any type SUP. So don’t oversize your board too much if you already have good skills.

Offered in dual track using bomber Chinook tracks. Much tougher than Futures boxes. Set in a high density foam block going all the way through the board tying to the deck.

Boards comes standard with dual tracks. Tuttle $50 extra

$100 adder for installing both Tuttle AND dual tracks.

$50 adder for footstrap inserts.

Tip of the day! If your shapers doesn’t foil, walk away. Oh, the horror stories I’ve heard.

These two videos (Surfline Cam) capture me foiling at New Smyrna Beach on two different days when the swell was only 1.4 ft @ 7 sec. The board I’m flying is 5’11 x 28.5 with the Neil Pryde Large Surf wing. I come into view from the right edge of the screen foiling to the left. You don’t need a huge board to foil small surf.

My board sizing recommendation as follows…

5’11 foil SUP = 7’6 regular SUP in ease of use, paddling straight, reactive surfing, skill required, etc.

6’4 foil SUP = 8’6 regular SUP in ease of use, paddling straight, reactive surfing, skill required, etc.

Boards widths: 28.5” on a foil SUP = 30” on a regular SUP in side to side stability.

These general guidelines apply to my boards only. It took 2 years of prototypes to reach this level of performance. Not everyone is there yet.

Typical foot placement for strapless foilers shown here. As you can see above, the foot placement is staggered. This gives more leverage for turning, and actually, incresed stability.  You sometimes hear people say straps increase control. They say this because straps are usually placed on the board centerline (no stagger) where leverage and control are reduced, if not for those straps.  People who come into surf foiling with prior foiling expertise, kite foiling, windsurf foiling, etc, have an easy time surf foiling. It is second nature. Those with no prior foil training often struggle with a staggered stance, so they place their feet on the centerline to compensate for lack of skill. This is where the urge to use straps first comes into play. My best advice is learn strapless with a staggered stance. This will get you to the freedom of stapless high performance surfing. It’s a quick learning curve when the waves are good.  FYI, the same rules apply to prone surf foiling. Although the stagger is minor, because the boards and wings are more narrow that SUP.
