AXIS froth is famous for its perfect balance between performance, early lift and ease of ride – a stable platform that packs plenty of volume into a short length to reduce swing weight and increase your fun while sup foiling or wingfoiling.
Axis’ newest Froth foil board retains this personality, but they have made some important design changes – reflecting the movement towards higher aspect, lower drag foil designs that require more speed to lift-off. The following changes have been made on 2022 the board:
- Eliminated the angle cut-away on the tail - This increases the length of the planing surface to increase sub- foiling speed potential.
- Reduced the rail bevel - now fading out completely at the tail adding more width to the planing surface and straightening the water flow for even faster acceleration up to foiling speed.
- pulled in the nose, made the outline more rounded and increased volume - to reduce the chances of catching in rougher water, compared to the more square nose from 2021. Axis have increased the thickness and volume up here too, to maintain a balance in buoyancy that will give you stability when on your knees or stepping up to get going.
- New deck concave - gives your feet and toes improved leverage when initiating turns, while feeling safe and secure in a straight line when riding without straps. Axis’ unique tail pad design ensures any water captured in the concave, flows freely out the back.
How to size your froth
Unique to AXIS is the large range of sizes that will ensure you can achieve the volume that’s right for you. For wingers starting out, we recommend 20-40 litres more than your body weight in kilograms. Intermediate riders should drop down to roughly the same litres as their body weight (or 10-15 litres above), while advanced riders can go as small as you dare – the only limit is your athleticism and the steadiness of the wind conditions. If it’s gusty, stay closer to your body weight in litres. SUP foilers will naturally gravitate to the largest sizes in the range.
