The 7'1 Falcon is parallel template (Tomo Style) foil SUP. 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, fighting the pump.
2) A board that paddles like a sea slug all the time, or at just the wrong time, rejecting your wave entry.
3) A board that requires shimming the foil mount to reduce drag.
SUP boards seem to be more prone to the above issues when adding a foil mount due to their massive size, and massive rocker, when compared to a prone board having a foil mount added.
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. Foiling a flat bottom board sucks the life out of a foil board. It sticks, instead of bouncing off the water. A foil board should feel like its allergic to water.
The chine running lengthwise is cut parallel. In testing, parallel chines paddle faster than a chine following the template curve. My template is also parallel through the middle for more paddle speed. With foiling, its not how a shape surfs, it is how it paddles. You surf the wing, not the board. The board should help you fly only.
The tail chine is the obvious addition for better pumping, but a lesser known advantage is on takeoff. The wave naturally pushes 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 Kalama tail bevel, acting like rocker, at take off.
Offered in dual track using bomber Chinook tracks. Much tougher than Futures boxes. Set in 2" Divinycell black.
It is important to pick the right size board. If you select a board too big for your weight, you lose stability with this type design. You would be riding high and dry, up on the narrow center panel. You want to be down in the water, rails engaged, deck flush with the water. Then you have maximum stability and board feels like any other in your quiver.
Tip: with the Naish Large surf wing mounted to this board at a width of 28.75" the stability is the same as a normal surf SUP at a width of 29.75. So you must plan on going one inch narrower with a Naish foil, to have same stability. This rule of thumb is not the same for all foils. For example, the Gong Surf foil added no stability to the board, requiring you to foil SUP on your normal width board.
