Explore New Breaks – Beat The Crowds – Expand Your World On The Water.
It seems like the way we look at riding waves is really about to change. It seems every few years hydrofoils surface but they always seem to rescind back into the depths of gear sheds. We think those dust gathering days are over, and foiling is here to stay. More and more people are taking to the water with foils beneath their boards than ever before, and in more sports categories than ever before.
The foil has always been met with skepticism, since day one and in every sport that it has been ridden. Foils won’t be for everyone and they wont ever replace surfing. That isn’t why we are here. We are here to help people get on the water as much as possible. Thats what foiling does, it gives the surfer the ability to surf every day. It opens up new waves, new spots and new days for you to get water time. It has forever changed the conditions that watermen consider ‘good’ in so many different sports.
The Hover Glide FSurf/SUP Surf Foil is designed to deliver surfers an new and exciting wave riding experience. This is accomplished with an early takeoff and gliding speed designed to match the speed of (small-to-medium) waves. This design eliminates the need for excessive pumping, and will show in your smooth foiling style. Once you get the basics you will learn this wing can generate speed in the turns and you’ll be carving glassy faces like they are going out of style! The aluminum design is affordable but more importantly, it increases stability and eliminates the “twitchy” behavior that full-carbon foils typically exhibit. With the FSurf/SUP Foil, you can ride rolling swell on the outside, catch whitewater on the inside, or when you’re ready, paddle into breaking waves like you would with a regular surf or SUP board.
