Which Axis Foil Should I buy For Wing Foiling?
The perfect combination for an 80kg/176lbs rider is the 1060 BSC (Broad Spectrum Carve) front foil, the Freeride 440/90 rear foil, the Short fuselage and the 75 aluminium mast. This combination is stable, easy to lift and very forgiving, but still a rewarding performer.
Once you’re foiling confidently, you may want to transition to a longer Aluminium (82, 90, 105) or Carbon (860, 960) mast to minimise the breaching of the surface in rougher water or swells, and a smaller rear wing from the Freeride Small range. Alternatively, you may choose to blast straight into the new world that is HPS, ART and Progressive and Speed rear wings.
HPS and ART wings
Fast, yet still easy to ride, these foils are addictive. They will take
a solid pumping technique to get foiling (or a couple of extra knots of wind) but once up, you’ll stay foiling through lulls, tacks and gybes. Such is their exceptional glide. Match the speed of these front foils with a low drag rear wing from either the Progressive or Speed range.
Note that the reduced chord and lower camber of the HPS foils require a switch to the Black fuselage. You could stay on the short length, or more advanced riders looking for a looser turning (but less pitch stable) feel can go to the Ultrashort fuselage.
