Building on the SST V6 platform Ben fell in love with, our design team rose to the occasion and delivered a further refined SST V7 that offers lightning-fast response and precision turning.

Dream Rider V1

The Dream Rider is here to make riding a twin tip fun again! Our design team focused on creating one of the smoothest and most fun boards to ride on top of the water. We started with one of our most proven and skinniest profiles for great edge control and rail-to-rail nimbleness. We then added a whopping 26mm of concave (the most on any board made) to create a shape that munches on chop for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We then built the board with our new Foamlite core (the only foam core in our lineup) to provide lightweight buoyancy so riders can literally float on top of the water with unmatched ease and effort.

Why You’ll Love It

  • With over 26mm of concave, the Dream Rider has the deepest hull on any board, anywhere.
  • The longer and thinner outline creates a freeride upwind carving machine.
  • Center inline fins create a nimble and playful ride with the tightest turning capabilities

Impact XR V1

Our new Impact XR kite surfboard is a full-power, pedal-to-the-metal board built to shred a clean wall of swell to pieces. Thanks to its narrower, pulled-in outline and squash tail, the Impact XR is right at home when the waves get big and powerful. Thanks to Impact’s fast planning hull, the board rockets upwind on the rail, getting you back to the top of the peak faster. Then take one step back with your back foot, and the board is ready to dissect. The Impact has tons of hold and drives off the bottom, which helps set up and allows for radical hard craving turns off the top. If you’re looking for a high-confidence board for charging when the waves get juicy, look no further than the Impact!

Why You’ll Love It

  • XR Construction—the best blend of durability and weight, providing a true surfboard feel

Foil Boards

Hope Craft V1

Fred Hope has been foiling for a long time. The world champion knows what works and what doesn’t. We decided to give him free-reign to design exactly what he wants. The result is the all-new Hope Craft V1. Fred is always trying new tricks on his foil and he wanted slightly more volume in the nose than the smaller boards we make so that he could recover from touchdowns after radical maneuvers. He also needed stiffness. When you are moving at speed and heading into turns with serious pressure, you need that hero-level stiffness. The Hope Craft V1 takes true performance to the next level. If you are looking for a board that can keep up with your progression, the Hope Craft is your ticket to Glide.

Why You’ll Love It

  • This is the most responsive, performance-driven foil board we have ever built
  • Premium lightweight construction makes this board extremely nimble beneath your feet
  • The stiffest foil board we make delivers high-pressure turns and amazing upwind charging

Dwarf Craft V2

The Dwarf Craft V2 is the perfect choice for foilers that are looking to take their skills to the next level. Built with a progressive shape and outline, the Dwarfs are one of the most trusted foil boards around. A shorter and wider outline provides great response from the rider to the foil. With chined rails, the Dwarfs stay up on foil when you come in contact with the water while on edge, which makes the boards extremely stable and fun when learning new tricks or dialing in your transitions. The Dwarf Crafts can be ridden strapped or strapless and feature a durable and light weight construction that won’t hold you back as you progress from session to session.

Why You’ll Love It

  • The Original Compact Foil Board

Alien Air V5

The Alien Air has taught more people how to foil than almost any other foil board. Now in its 5th iteration, the board has been fully optimised for foiling progression. With a reduced volume from previous years, the board is far easier to maneuver in the water and starting position. Less volume makes your first waterstarts more manageable and provides more performance as you progress past the beginner stage. Featuring subtle chined rails and an effective nose rocker, the Alien Air will have you on foil like a master.

Why You’ll Love It

  • The Alien Air V5 has the perfect balance of size and volume to make learning and progressing easier

Converter XR V5

Built with the shape and construction of our popular Sci-Fly XR surfboard, the Converter XR V5 carries on the same high-performance characteristics. The flatter rocker and parallel rail outline deliver top-of-the-line efficiencies both on and off foil. This allows riders to hold down a better edge without a foil and also gives you the speed you need to get on foil. The winged-diamond tail shape provides added grip and pop for strapless freestyle tricks and it also provides added leverage when pushing off the water to get yourself on foil. The Converter XR V5 features our XR construction, which gives the rider the feel and performance of a traditional surfboard in a lightweight package.

Why You’ll Love It

Travel Craft V1

The Travel Craft has been optimised for size and space. We trimmed all the unnecessary size and volume out of this board to make it as compact as possible. The reduce length provides hero-level stiffness and response while the board is under foot. Even though the board is small in size, it is not small in features. Designed with versatility in mind, we made sure to include multiple footstrap insert positions for riders of all styles and abilities. Featuring beveled rails for on-water performance and our new out-the-back foil connect that gets you on the water quicker and easier when you are at your dream location.
