freeride windsurf board / hydrofoil
135 l, 155 l (36 gal)
JUST LIKE FLYING!
Foil boarding is the latest and hottest trend in windsurfing. We developed two specific shapes for this new dimension of this great sport:
HYDROFOIL 135 & 155
Developed by Werner Gnigler together with Sebastian Kornum and the rest of the JP team riders.
The 135 could be called an all-round Foilboard – it makes foiling easy and accessible for everyone who wants to experience the feeling of flying over water. At the same time, it offers racers a very efficient racing machine.
It’s shape suits all levels, from beginner to professional – from zero to hero. It covers a very wide wind range. And yes, you can also use it with a normal fin. It feels like a shorter and wider version of a Super Sport and is almost as fast.
Compared to our 155 the 135 has a slightly bigger range in higher winds as its nose stays a little lower when flying, so the board is therefore easier to control.
The board is much easier to use for foiling than normal Slalom or Freeride Boards as it offers a comfortable stance and enough leverage to handle the lift.
Once up on the foil the board provides a neutral platform so that you can fully concentrate on controlling the foil. The hull creates as little resistance in the air as possible, which is very important when you are flying.
