Who we are
Since its creation in 2015, Forward WIP has made its name in the world of Foil, the new queen discipline that has revolutionized competitive and amateur boating. Flying on the water at over 30 km / h offers new sensations and ever-higher performance. The need to protect yourself at these speeds is obvious, as falls can lead to serious trauma.
Forward WIP has become the undisputed leader in protective equipment for all disciplines (Class America, flying catamarans, Kitefoil, WingFoil, etc.). The reputation has been forged thanks to the quality and relevance of our products which are used by a long list of professional athletes! Glenn Ashby, Billy Besson, or Loick Peyron… 3 world sailing stars who trust Forward WIP.
Being at the forefront requires constant questioning. Our team of engineers, riders, and testers gather the skills and passion required to develop the products of the future.
Our mission is to offer optimal protection for both professionals and amateurs and allow them to go beyond their limits, freeing their minds from potential injuries.
A brand dedicated to water action sport, gear, sail, foil and fly faster !
