Galaxy Foil Board

Ultralight | Foil specific | Connected

Story: Dedicated hydrofoil performance, combined with revolutionary construction, highlight the Liquid Force Galaxy. Some may argue that the board is not as important as the foil. However, we believe that the interaction between board, foil and rider are critical to the performance and experience of riding a hydrofoil. No detail was overlooked or compromised in the design and engineering of the Galaxy Hydrofoil Board. The Galaxy’s precision engineered details offer the highest performance characteristics for your hydrofoil. A forgiving outline, combined with a unique forward placed double concave hull design, allows for easy on water tracking when starting as well as during planned, or even unexpected touchdowns. The beveled rail design aids in heeled over, chop deflection, keeping the board in line with the foil trajectory. The “feel good” concave deck affords the rider detailed control via the ability to translate foil feedback more rapidly and precisely.

Rider adjustability and setup preference is important to us. The Galaxy affords this with the use of a track mounting system for dialing in the placement of the foil, a full coverage comfort EVA deck pad complete with kicktail for the strapless rider, and performance tuned insert configuration options for; single strap, inline double straps, or triple strap configurations. All this in a unique molded lightweight and durable honeycomb carbon construction that is proprietary to Liquid Force.

Happy Foil Board 4.10

Multi Use | Light | Durable

Story: How could you not be happy on the Happy Foil Board? This multi-purpose, magical ride will take you from smooth sailing hydrofoil action to finned up wave slashing. To be used with or without a foil, the Happy has been designed with wakesurf inspired DNA that crosses into a perfectly adaptable board to foil on. Customize to your heart’s desire with an adjustable mast track mounting system and the ability to rock inline straps or staggered 3strap set up. The foil track is tuned to the 90mm standard spacing and the board comes complete with a FCS compatible quad fin system. Comes complete with 3 straps and surf fins.

Rocket Foil Board 5.0

Easy | Bomb Proof | Adjustable

Story: We think that adding a free riding hydrofoil board to your quiver should serve a couple purposes. The Rocket foil board is wonderful for first time glides on a foil all the way to advanced foil carving. The Rocket Foil board has higher surface area and a slight increased rocker line that assist in water “touch down” deflection, keeping the board from submerging and giving the rider plenty of time to master the art of riding a foil. While this board does have an adjustable track mounting system for the foil it also serves as a great board to ride without the foil. If you find yourself in an area to shallow, to much sea or lake weeds, don’t worry! The Rocket works great as a directional, all around fun board! Board comes complete with a directional fin system and enough straps for an inline setup or a staggered 3 strap setup.

Comes complete with 3 straps and fins.

Impulse Foil Kit

Freeriding | Cross performance excellence | Surf

Story: Created in collaboration with Cloud IX surf foils, the Impulse wing set confidently crosses kite, surf and wake hydrofoiling. Designed to provide rapid lift and long glide, along with a wide speed and wind range. The Impulse will take your freeride kite hydrofoiling to the next level. Allowing more time for tack and gybe transitions, constant wing engagement on jump landings, and the ability to drop a size kite or get out in even lighter wind conditions than ever imagined. These same design attributes make the Impulse ideal for mounting on a hydrofoil compatible SUP or prone surfboard. Efficient and smooth controlled lift, along with the ability to generate glide by pumping the wing, keeps swell energy connectivity easy and manageable. This magic can be translated behind the boat where the Impulse excels at sustained hydrofoiling on both the primary and secondary wakes with or without the rope!

Thruster Foil Kit

Stable | Leading edge design | Easy

Story: New to the LF hydrofoil line up is the Thruster Foil. This complete foil kit utilizes the same proven alloy mast configuration that runs though LF’s complete hydrofoil line. New in the configuration is the use of the HD alloy fuselage that creates a highly hydrodynamic connection with the wings. The Thruster wing set has been developed in collaboration with Matt Wheeler, master hydrofoil expert and engineer in Hood River, Oregon USA. This collaboration has brought to life a unique wing design that provides extended range and stability offering rapid lift and stability at speed. If you are in search of the pinnacle of freeriding performance look no further.
