Prone and/or Kite Foil Board

from 10.00

Base Price $795 with tracks and pad.

Base Price $845 with Tuttle and pad.

Same bomber construction as my kite foil boards. Full 4oz innegra cloth (not netting or tapes) lamination covered in full 6 oz carbon, plus some carbon patches at key areas. Vacuum bagged. Then painted over for heat protection. Standard paint job is typical distressed sanded coat to show its carbon without overheating.

Offering lengths up to 5'2 (anything shorter). Widths to 21". Thickness is fixed at 2.9".

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 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. My template is also parallel through the middle for more paddle speed. With foiling, it’s not how a shape surfs, but how it paddles. You surf the wing, not the board. The board should help you fly only. If you’re wondering how it paddles with chines compared to a flat or concave bottom…ponder this. Displacement hulls beat planing hulls at sub planing speeds. You are at sub planing speeds when paddling. So yeah, everyone will have this bottom once they figure it out.

The Kalama tail bevel 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 tracks using bomber Chinook boxes. Much tougher than Futures boxes because Chinooks are made for windsurfing and are molded with a high glass fill content. Making them slightly heavier, much tougher, and more expensive. Don’t settle for anything short of Chinook in your board. Set in a 2" thick Divinycell blcok. 

Optional Tuttle box using USA built boxes by Larry Tuttle himself. $50 adder.

Installing both Tuttle and dual tracks is $100 adder.

Deck pad included

Strap inserts extra.
